This weekend is full of car shows, and Saturday was a two show day. I drove about an hour north to a show in the town park that filled up with way over one hundred entries. There were five Old Guys in the show with some award winners. We had a good day visiting and checking out the other entries and the included BBQ lunch. Some very unique rides showed up and the weather helped with a steady breeze although fairly warm. The plan was to go on back south with a couple of other Old Guys to another show in the evening.

After the first show gave out the awards we loaded up and went for a short drive through the country to go around yet another bridge construction. This show was in a smaller town and as part of the entry we were entitled to four hamburger meals with chips and drinks. It was a nice evening and several more Old Guys were there including one that hadn't shown up yet this summer. It was a good day.

08-05-2015 09:42 AM 191-17 A new one
This was the second year for this show and I missed it last year, held at a VFW about 40 some miles away. The weather was typical summer, warm but with a decent breeze in the shade where we were parked. There were several Old Guys in attendance and Old Guy Bobby even came away with the best of show for his ''peach'' of a '36 Ford. We enjoyed the burgers and BBQ and most every one of the 40 entries received a cool glass plaque. The trip went well even with the warm temps as the radiator kept 200* there and back. That may be my new normal temperature with the 16'' fan. Gearing up for next week end and three shows to see.

07-30-2015 03:00 PM 190-16 Heading south
There are several bridge construction/rehabs in my area which make it a challenge to go west. A little jog through the country to go around them is necessary. I was able to eventually make progress west and met up with Old Guy Fuzzy and we went south to a club's car show about 70 (for me) miles away. It was a very nice day, not terribly hot although there was a small shower which added to the high humidity, just enough to panic the T-top owners and paint fanatics. There totaled five Old Guys and some family in attendance. We had a good day and enjoyed the spectators and club members. We even headed home with some awards. Everyone made it there and back and had a good drive. One personal achievement for me was on the way home my hot rod rolled over 20 thousand miles.

07-24-2015 10:46 AM 189-15 Stacks and Packs
The next day after the Lakes was a much larger show which was held along with an antique tractor show; exhaust stacks and glass packs. The show is held in a fair grounds with a scarcity of shade and is usually a really warm day. This day was no different, hot with not much breeze, but we had a good time anyway with several Old Guys attending. Included in the fair food were homemade ice cream and pulled pork so the day had some really good points. There were lots of very well done cars and interesting entries not seen often. Everyone went home with good memories and enjoyed more miles in cool drivers.
