10-10-2011 07:06 AM #26 The gang's all here
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.

This show was the next morning after the night show before. As part of a fall festival the weather was right there, very cool and windy with the leaves turning and blowing, vendors with coffee and hot chocolate helped as well. Lots of car show friends showed up and we had a good time visiting and enjoying the parade and festivities. My friends were laughing with me that for a ride that rarely is a trophy winner, my hot rod sure draws a lot of attention. It was a very comfortable day and a short drive home. Still a few shows left to attend.

This show was an evening festival opening and drew about 60 cars and trucks. The weather was cool and windy which meant good crowds and few bugs on the drive there and back. I'm a little iffy on night driving in my area in east central Illinois. We grow big deer and they can total a much bigger vehicle than mine. The hot rod had many lookers and pictures taken as well as favorable comments. I think there are no new little bed remarks, have heard them all. It was all together a good show and a good evening and a safe trip there and back. Off to another show the next morning.

This show was a quick trip compared to the 2+ hours to Indy. The weather gave showers mixed with a little sunshine and then rain pretty steady-but no complaint 'cause we need rain. Friend Fuzzy Ron got his Tbucket back from paint and was able to attend even with the weather. I'm sure he had a wet trip home. In spite of the showers it was a good day spent with good friends and even a bucket of door prizes. Aside from the usual local cars some new entries showed up and a good time was had by all.

09-19-2011 08:39 AM #22 Speedway Indy
Drove the hot rod over to Indianapolis for the first Goodguys held at the 500 Speedway. I think there were 3000+ entries, at least I saw entry numbers in the 2700s when I thought to look. Friend Bill and I walked for miles trying to see everything there and it always seemed to be more to see. I don't know if my own hot rod drew any interest as we were gone most of the time. The trip was uneventful even with all the exits off 465 closed. Our plan had always been to use state roads to avoid the horrible condition of interstate 70 in Indiana and construction zones. I missed getting to watch the drag races at Raceway Park but the autocross was cool and every one there listened to the Indy cars running all day...you could buy rides for a couple of laps. The weather was great, cool early with lots of cloud cover but perfectly clear for the rest of the day. A great show and a great day.
