The end of summer sucks, but it should bring in some great artwork. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

Favorite Hang Out

Every town had it's favorite cruiser hang out . In northern California back in the 1970's our hang out was a Arctic Circle. It was more of a big window restaurant that had a large parking lot with plenty of room for Rodders to park watch the traffic and talk. Arctic Circle offered it's secret sauce witch was good on fries or burgers. The north coast was not a good place for drive in restaurants due to seasonal weather. Although we did cruise year around summer was boss . Summer met open top rides and girls dressing down not up. Signed Vagabond Road Artist Lincoln Highway Johnny

Thank you Brickyard Boy. I wonder with the teens of today no what they are missing? The personal one on one with a ride you totally built yourself and the joy of showing it off. In those days Life was real, not video games. Signed Vagabond Road Artist Lincoln Highway Johnny.

I hear ya! I can remember the pride that I felt when I took the 1st ride through the local drive-in eateries with my latest hot rod, as humble as it was. It may not have been the best looking or the fastest, but it was mine, and I was proud of it, and people were looking!

During the late '60's when I was in a car club, we didn't have a Bobs Big Boy in our city but we did have an A&W and a Fosters Freeze. Those were the two local hangouts for all the car guys. We eventually got a Bobs Big Boy, but it never attracted the hot rodders and finally went out of business. Here is my work for this month showing a gathering at Fosters and one that could be the end of Summer in any town USA.

Nothing says end of summer more to me than a cornfield that's ready to harvest.

Here's a few from me. Years ago, our local drive-in, Red Rock Drive-In, used to pack them in on Friday and Saturday nights. As time passed, every good thing must come to an end, and our beloved Red Rock closed, and now a mall stands where it used to be. I never had a chance to bring my '69 nova there, but at least I can stick it in one of my drawings!
