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.

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.
