11-07-2011 12:04 PM No #30, but "club" shirts
I didn't get to go to the last show on my schedule which would have been number 30 for the season. As it happens I had to have my everyday driver worked on. Thanks to my son Kory coming up with a smart fix repairing a water leak on the intake manifold of my 2K F150 which saved me having to buy an $800 manifold. Not one of Fords better ideas. Now it's time to start the winter fix it list.
A few weeks back I worked up a "club" logo for the old guys. With apologies to Mr. Crum I flipped over the truckin character, changed the coat to a T-shirt and the shoes to sneakers. Using a shirt meant adding more to the arms and a thumbs up. Of course since we're old guys he needed a beard. I had it screened on grey shirts and hand painted one for each Bill and Fuzzy. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out.

Another fine weekend for a car show. It was cold enough that I put gloves on to drive, 38degrees and no heater. There were 60+ entries from very good pro built cars down to mine. The show drew an interesting mix, lots of Mustangs and Camaros but not as many Corvettes and even a few street rods. I'm looking forward to friends Bill and Fuzzy being able to go along, I'm often the only hot rod entry. The recent radiator fix clearly was not a repair as it's back. I'm not sure if I'll go to the last show on my schedule next weekend and put up with the leak or start on my winter fix list. It's getting longer, and then of course there will be the cabin fever projects. Time will tell.

My poor steam powered computer won't let me send pictures very well so I borrow my son's. Last time I posted I had intended to post two shows but of course forgot to take all the pictures with me. So...that weekend was another two-fer. The first show had evidently been put together at short notice to raise money for a local dance group. There were about 30some entries with several unfamiliar cars mixed with the more usual turn out. This event was at the northeast corner of my normal cruise range and the weather was great all be it very windy. I was very concerned about friend Fuzzy's T-bucket top in that wind (think parachute), but all was well. After the door prizes and awards we all said goodbye, this would be maybe the last show to see them all this season. I too fought the wind going home.
The next day was back on the road to what was billed as a picnic for car people. Just cruise in and enjoy the day and the interesting mix of restored, rodded, collected, or just driven and enjoyed automobilia at a state park.

A great fall day in the park with a small car show to boot.

The Old Guys with Hot Rods all came together again for a great day in perfect fall weather. Fuzzy's new hot rod was still waiting for license plates but the T gets him where he wants to go-it's just a little chilly early in the day. Bill and I cruised into the Scarecrow Festival along with another car show friend and ace welder in his Mustang. We all enjoyed the great weather and watched the more particular entrants try to keep up with the falling leaves. The large crowd seemed to appreciate all the fine machinery and many vendors with crafts and food. We are getting down to the last few shows of the season and hopefully the fine weather will hold on.
