Anyone ever see a Corvair gasser? This was at the Back To The Fifties show this weekend too. Lots of cool cars to see.

I'm glad you took a pic of that Corvair. I took a few on my phone camara but the only way to download them is to email them to myself.
Anyway, that Corvair was beautiful AND for sale..........only 30k...

Did you get any pics of the Mercury Comet that was next to it or was that gone?? I took some for 71BB. It will be a while before I can get them on here.

No I didn't. It was pretty cool. A buddy was with and I didn't want to slow down the show with me taking too many pictures. I took these with my phone and used my flickr app to upload them.

I'm surprised there were as many people there today as there was. It turned out to be a great day from what it looked like it might be in the morning.

As always there was a lot to see. After almost four hours of walking we decided we saw enough and headed out for the two hour drive home.

Got back home tonight around 6:30pm. Had a great time - Thanks for posting a picture of my car.

The count on Saturday morning was 12036 cars registered. The storms that came through did not affect the attendance much at all, if it did.

Hey nice pictures. sorry we couldn't get together.

Here is my weekend:

Wed night was early registrtion and it went smoothly. For some it did not however. I managed to slide the dually into the end slot just as another truck pulled out. I think it took longer to walk up to the reg. area than it did to complete the form and post the $$$.

Thurs afternoon was the 25th annual gathering of the Willys clan. We had 13 Willys. They ranged from a pure stocker running and driven to the events, a couple gassers, pickups, street cruisers, and my Pro Street.

One of the guys brought about 40 pounds of ribs,,,,,munmun good.

the host displayed his new 35 4 door. pristine steel body. he is about 3/4 done. 2 tone gray sbc and OD. It's going to be a great cruiser.

Friday dawned with rain storms but eventually dried out untill evening. I just made it to the shop and had my car on the trailer ramps as the great storm hit. The barely made it into it's home dry but the owner got soaked closing up the trailer.

I was a bit late getting to the fairgrounds so I knew I'd be relegated to the SW parking lot. I made 2 laps in the mist then parked and cleaned up. I visited a few vendors, had a few french fries then wandered around looking at cars. I found 5 more Willys and met some nice owners. The balance of the day I just rested where I could and watched the endless parade of cars.

Sat was very damp and humid, it even rained most of the way to the FG. i did arrive about 7:00 am and found a nice spot just inside the gate. Just ahead of me was one of my cruise guys so we parked together. There were 2 other Willys just down the street so I went and visited with them for a while. Then I wandered around checking out cars and some other vendors. Finally about 1:00 pm I settled in to watch the parade with some cruise buddies. I had to stay off me feet as I had to play a double headder baseball on Sun. I finally left about 8:30pm and took the long way cruise down Snelling ave. There were hundreds of spectators along this street as usual. You have to be careful as they sometimes will jump right out in front of you to get pictures. The cops were out in force so there wasn't much horsing around on the street.

More rain and thunderstorms Sat night. I waited untill the last minute to see if the game was on but there was no E-mail or phone calls so I headed out to Webster about an hour drive. Arriving at the ballfield it looked like like a waterpolo pool. I called the coach and he said the games were transfered to Mongomery about another 25 miles away. Good thing I left on time. I just made it to the warmup and batting practice. The other team was short 2 players so another guy and I volunteered to play on the other team. The field a bit wet but in excellent condition. I play 2nd base and the wet infield and well raked sand really slowed the ground balls down. Good thing as my home team hits really hard. I got to bat against 3 of our pitchers and hit the ball pretty hard for an old guy. So I felt good. We played 2 7 inning games. It was a great day after the clouds left.

I was so stiff today at work i could hardly move.
