09-15-2010 08:38 AM Moonshine Cruise continued
When the cruise left the Moonshine Store we drove up to Martinsville to take in a car show and visit with the people there. Next stop on the agenda was west on the highway to Greenup IL where the cruisers stopped at a real ice cream parlor and soda fountain. The Candy Kitchen has been in business for many years.

I dropped out of the road tour here to do other stuff but the group's plans were to go on to a local winery and vineyard and then through a covered bridge. It was a great trip and a good day. The weather was fine and so was the company. I will look forward to next year.

09-13-2010 06:40 PM #21 Not a show...a cruise
I found a group on the 'net that were cruising down to my neighborhood to visit a local landmark. Imet up with the group of about 20-30 cars as they came into Casey IL where I live. I got in line after some intros and we headed down the highway. The destination is a little country store that has recieved national recognition for serving hamburger lunches to thousands of bikers, car clubs, and tourists. The business I think started out as a simple country store for farmers and oil field workers. Handy because it is in the middle of nowhere surrounded by fields and country roads. Moonshine IL has served something like 1200 bikers at one time and has been featured on TV and in several publications. The group had lunch, visited and car looked and then took to the country roads for the next stop.

09-07-2010 10:11 AM Shows #19 & 20
Had a busy weekend with shows on Saturday and Sunday again. The first was a street show in the middle of town as part of a Cheese Festival. There were eighty some cars and lots of ones I had seen before but several new to me. Met up with people I knew and more that I didn't. The weather was great and the trip was okay. Got some leads on cars like mine that were being built. The second show was only a few blocks away from where I live and was again part of a festival, this for popcorn. Over 140 cars entered and the weather held put. Spent the day visiting with friends and totally forgot to take photos. All in all a great weekend.

Most of the shows I've been to use a top" number" for the judging which I'm sure makes it easier on the judges and probably forstalls bad feelings. This is fine by me, my only gripe is why awards are given to brand new cars. All of the shows I've gone to that were not restricted by year gave awards to 2010 and 2011 Camaroes/Mustangs/Challengers. Why????

08-30-2010 08:18 PM Show #18 Frog Follies
Went back to the Frog Follies this year, the second time in my hot rod. This was a great show as always, the last number I heard on Saturday was 4037 I think. The weather was warm but not the HOT and HUMID of years past. I found a new way to go down by cutting over to Sullivan IN and it was a much better ride than before. Saw lots of magazine quality rods and got lots of picture takers looking at mine. Why does everyone laugh at my bed?? We parked in the hollow just west of the gate in the shade and watched the rods drive in when we weren't wandering around. The line for spectators was backed up to 41 all day long. The only casualty was a rock chip in my chopped windshield that will have to be taken care of before it breaks further. We also noted more rods built along the lines of mine than in the last couple of years.
