06-16-2011 09:21 AM #6 Another new one...
A car dealer in a nearby town held it's 3rd annual car show last Saturday. As is the usual case, the proceeds went to a local charity and several hundred dollars were raised. This was my first time participating and was pleased to hear that the show was growing is size. Besides some of the usual suspects there were some new to me entries that I was impressed with. So I visited with friends, made plans for the next shows, and explained my hot rod to several attendees and spectators. Next weekend may be a three-fer if the weather holds.

06-12-2011 08:56 AM #5 Lots of cars and lightning
This show was probably the largest I've been to this year. The Wheels Car Club were in charge of the event which was held in the middle of town on blocked streets with plenty of room for the about 100 cars. Some very well done pro quality cars showed up and a good time was had by all. This was an evening event and the weather was hot and humid which led to a pretty spectacular lightning show as a thunder storm moved through. I always assume that my hot rod will finish out of the running for awards especially at larger events so I left when the wind came up as the storm got close. A friend emailed me the next day to say that I should have stayed to get my top 50 award. This isn't the first time I've left too soon, you'd think I would learn.

06-08-2011 05:46 PM #4 Off again to ...
I live in an area where there are shows to attend all around in small towns most within about an hours drive. If I go from top to bottom of this area I can get to see cars and people I haven't met yet, although there are usually some familiar of both. This particular show was a first time for me and again a little iffy on the weather but it never did rain and there were some clear sky moments. Met a new friend with a very nice T-bucket and shared histories and info on shows and places to go. My friend Ray the photographer was there for hotrodhotline as well. The drive was safe and trouble free and was kind of cool on the way home as several of the participants were going the same way. I came away with a third place plaque in a three car class!?!

06-07-2011 10:14 AM Between shows
At a recent car show I spoke with a guy who had a '46 truck like mine. I found he had installed a 'glass headliner and was pleased with the way it looked and the fit. I checked into it at oldchevytrucks and even though there were no pictures and it was pretty pricey to me, I ordered one. I have yet to install it as I need to paint it and fab or find some trim to secure it, but it looks as if it's going to work. I ran a post some time back about making my own over the outside of the top of the cab. This one is what I had in mind. It appears to be a single layer of cloth and gel with a "leather" like inside texture. I'm not sure if once it's fitted I should reinforce it more or not. I'll post some "after" pics.

05-29-2011 12:08 PM #3 showers still
This show was pretty close to home, another spring celebration. I drove from clear sky into a sudden rain and showers returned a couple of times which kept some wiping down and closing up over again. The day developed into a nice one and the show grew in participants with a good crowd for the show and the fair both. I didn't make the top 20 but was told by the show manager that I came in second for one of the "special" awards. Of course there was no second place lol!
