After the Saturday show I drove to a nearby town Sunday morning for a small show at an auto parts store. I've attended this one for several years and it has out grown the parking lot where it is held. Almost every show I attend is for one good cause/charity or another and so was this one but between the producers needs for several tables and the local bar band's speaker set up the car space was severely reduced. The store was open and customers had no room to enter and leave which caused other restrictions. I don't go to car shows for entertainment other than the car show itself and I do appreciate the effort to supply music and announcements, but I feel the music should be in the background. I don't know if it's true all over but all of the car shows I've been to the participants pretty much stand/sit around and talk about car stuff or answer questions about their ride, and very loud bands and DJs leave no room for 'any' conversation. That was the case this day. I think I'll do my bit to help the congestion and not go back next year.

09-20-2013 07:46 AM 126-22 Beautiful fall day...
An absolutely beautiful day for a car show and parade. This fall festival was about sixty miles away and offered not only a car show but one of my grandsons was marching with his school band in the parade. The car show went well with some entries I hadn't seen before and several friends to visit with. We also enjoyed some really good pulled pork followed by soft serve ice cream. The day wrapped up with a good drive home, no trouble, no problems. I rolled into my just finished new garage addition and made plans to get the hot rod out the next morning for yet another chance to show it and see other people's creations.

Didn't have anything going on Saturday evening so took a quick trip over a few miles to a cruise in. Hadn't been there before and was not real sure where I needed to go but found the park and the other cars. Looked around and enjoyed the late afternoon and even visited with a couple of bystanders but then got back on the road for an other drive in the hotrod. Any time spent driving my '46 is a good time.

09-07-2013 08:15 AM 124-20 Another Festival
This show is the second this weekend and the 20th so far this summer. The Popcorn Festival is in my home town and only a few blocks away. I got there early as the venue in the city park fills pretty quickly. The show like most supports a charity and is well managed by a club from nearby Indiana. There were 120 entries and enough awards to satisfy all plus free popcorn. The show drew in many fine machines and even my friend Bill was able to make it to the show in his project. We all made it there and home and enjoyed the festival day and festival food.

09-07-2013 08:06 AM 123-19 Festival season starts
This is a car show attached to an Amish community and celebrates cheese. My friend Fuzzy came south with some of his fellow ''Wheels'' car club members and we all headed west to register for the festival car show. There were about 80 entries on a fine day with shady parking along the town's streets. There were several good comments on my new ''Old Guys'' plaque and I passed them on to the charter members. I'm afraid to say so but the up and down heat issues must be solved as we stayed at 175* there and back. I hurried home to spend the evening with my son and his family and get ready for another festival show the next morning.
