10-02-2015 10:19 AM Cruisin to Chow
I've mentioned in the past that one of the favorite passtimes of the Old Guys with Hot Rods is driving our hot rods to different places to eat. We sort-of make a rolling drive in car show. These two trips were to area eating places that are out of the way for anyone but locals. We made it to an old fashioned root beer stand (complete with a cute car hop) just before it closed for the season. We plan to be back when they reopen. The other place is in a tiny town a little closer to my home where the food is good and inexpensive. This day we were there for breakfast, giant cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven, ham and eggs,etc.. We had a fun time at each and plan more runs for fun food.

09-29-2015 10:27 AM 203-29 cruise and 204-30 Festival
On the Saturday after our fast trip to Kentucky was a local club's cruise to one of the area's most popular destinations. In the middle of nowhere is a country store that offers old fashioned griddled hamburgers. This little place often hosts hundreds of bikers and tourists on a Saturday. We cruised on back roads with thirty or so cars and bikes and enjoyed the lunch and time. A fun trip.

The next day was a Fall Festival car show on a near by town square. The Old Guys mostly parked together and had a great day with good food and entertainment and company.

09-29-2015 08:55 AM 202-28 Quick trip
A friend and I had three car shows we wanted to attend this weekend so we decided to make a fast trip to the Good-Guys Nationals in Bowling Green KY. As we were trying to hurry we drove down in my daily driver instead of the hot rods. Anyway we had a great day and hope that the show comes back on a yearly schedule. One of the really great things about Beech Bend is that you are sitting right on the strip to watch the drags...loud and smoky. Not as many cars but we were there on Friday. It was a good trip although a long day, 4+ hours each way.

09-16-2015 09:15 AM 201-27 Von Hot Rod
I have been looking forward to this show since last year when a friend told me that the famous California pinstriper Von Hot Rod was going to come back to the show this year. He had some work done on his 34 Chevy coupe that I liked and so I planned to be there this year. A couple of us drove up and met with others to cruise on to the Ford dealer where the show was held (along with the Fairlane Club of America show). I waited for an opening to ask about getting my tailgate striped and he said back it in. So I did. I had originally planned to have the stripes in yellow but he hadn't brought any so we chose one shot orange instead, it was a good choice. I really like the result and it was very reasonably priced so I bought a shirt as well. I'm a happy hotrodder, striping by Von Hot Rod himself. Thinking seriously about next year!!

09-16-2015 09:02 AM 200-26 The 200th time
This show has been a reliably good show for the last couple of years, not large but cool cars and just an hour down the road. There were nine guys from our little group of show goers and we mostly pulled in about the same time so got to park together. Old Guy's row sort-of. A personal thing about this show is that it is the 200th car show my hot rod and I have participated in since '09. Not a great achievement for some but I feel pretty good about it. Almost all of the OGs made it to the top picks and two were invited to a special show of the ''Best''. My new gauges seem to be reporting well but the temp is so much different than what the old gauge showed that I plan to borrow a laser temp gun to see if I can get a reliable read.
