First Cruse-In 2011

A few members of our club and I went over the mountains for a cruise-in that started a 0600 and was to close at Midnight. All donations were to go to the Cancer Society. This was supported by the Hard Times club in Newport, Tn whose roots are entwined with moonshine cars and circle track racing, some on the national level. Our representation included my coupe, a Grand National powered 38 Chevy coupe, a 460 powered 51 Merc 4 door, a 46 Ford coupe with Flathead, a Model A pickup with Ford V6 and a SBC powered 46 Chevy pickup. Dumb me went off and left the camera in the shop because the best looking 40 Ford pick up I have seen was there. It was powered with a warmed over 53 Merc Flattie. Hard to see, but he had a MII front end on it along with air conditioning. Don't know what tranny was behind the flathead, but it was an automatic. Crusi-matic was available in 53 so could well have been one of those. He had a tilt steering, but the original 40 steering wheel was skillfully blended right to it. The dash contained the original gauges, but the L/R turn indicators were about like a green glass tip of a ball point pen with a slightly larger Hi/Lo beam indicator in the middle. Body, paint, and interior was superb in every way. The owner/builder has been known to sell his stuff so I will approach him to see how much I will have to mortgage the house for.

To digress a bit, the trip over just drove home the need to build for handling. The Merc with the lead slug under the hood just could not stay any where near the two coupes and we were not even challenged at our reduced speeds.
