PHOTOS of the get together at the Dream Machine show.

Well after getting into town a little early and thinking the guys wouldn't make it there by show time I went ahead and went to the show early, just to see how it looked. They were letting people in early (2 hours before it "opened") and I just went in. After being there a fifteen or twenty minutes Dewey (cboy) calls and says he is at the Main street grille where we were supposed to meet! Darn it, I didn't think they would get there that fast being they were so far away when Mikey called. Anyway they had a nice breakfast in my favorite place and I had a nice phillycheese steak at the show.

Anyway, I have to tell all you guys, Dewey, his son Von and Girlfriend along with Dan (Dinger) are some super stand up guys. Mikey, and his son Michael I already knew were great guys. Really, we had a good time (at least I did, they may be talking among themselves at this very minute about what a horse's ars I am). The show, what can I say, awesome as expected. I mean, where else can you see and hear an original Hemi powered 1953 Chrysler Air Raid siren and have your son be asked if he would like to sit in a $200,000 Ferrari? How about watching a B-17 flyby as you are standing there looking at freestyle motorcycle show?

Next year, more of you have got to get out there!
