07-10-2014 06:29 AM 153-19 Home town show
The third car event was just across town and didn't even make it necessary to buy the third tank of gas. Just shy of ninety entries came in to enjoy the beautiful day. Not only wee they able to appreciate the weather and the many fist class cars and trucks but they were also entertained by two young Blues Brothers and an Elvis. There were on two faults for the day, still had to clean up the coolant blow by and the home made ice cream sold out early, but still in all a good day.
Now to start the radiator replacement, clean and fix the damage caused by the coolant and maybe do some other fixes while the hot rod is down. Hopefully all will be done for a show next weekend.

07-09-2014 06:17 AM 152-18 Back again
The next day the trip was right back where yesterday's cruise started for another July 4th (on the 5th) celebration car show. Lots of excellent machines came in from all around the area. The weather was still holding at very pleasant and participants and spectators alike had a great day. My first job at all of these shows is to clean up all the coolant spray on my hot rod, really tired of this. My new copper radiator has arrived and replacement will start first thing Monday morning.

07-08-2014 12:11 PM 151-17 Three more
For the first show of the 4th of July weekend I drove an hour north and joined three members of the club that was to host tomorrow's show. We all then went another hour up the road to a small town's July 4th celebration. The car show part lined both sides of the street clear through town. The close to 100 cars included something for everyone, even cars from the near by fabricators who brought out two GoodGuys top award winners. It's always fun for me to be able to cruise with a group of rodders, especially when they suggest stopping for milkshakes on the way back. I am going to need to put up with the spray from the leaking radiator to go to these shows, just keep wiping it all down.

07-03-2014 06:51 AM 150-16 ... or be square
The second show of the weekend was fifty miles from home in the opposite direction from the first.We accidently met up with friends on the road to the river bridge and cruised on over to the show. The local Indiana club holds this show around the town square and filled it with over one hundred entries. Excellent cars and trucks of all eras showing off in fine weather and appreciated by everyone.
Some where on the road to the last show my new aluminum radiator started to leak. Antifreeze is blowing out around the zip ties that hold the shroud. I have since learned that you should never use these (supplied with the shroud) on this type of radiator as they saw through the soft metal. Sixteen thousand miles and I'm now going to the third cooler....but NOT an aluminum radiator ever again. Just took delivery of a new copper cooler which I hope to install after this weekend's (July 4th) three shows.

07-02-2014 07:26 AM 149-15 Hippies?!
The first show of the weekend was held in a small central Illinois town which celebrates their history with several murals painted on original buildings around the center of town. There is also a unique metal sculpture/monument which is dedicated as the Hippie Memorial. I might add that there is also a car show. Town streets were lined with lots of really fine machines of every vintage and style. Local businesses welcomed participants and spectators alike. The weather looked questionable but cooperated until the unique hand made awards were distributed before the showers started. Another fine day in mid-America.
