Default Royboy Productions Coverage: 2012 Stray Kat 500

Another killer Stray Kat 500 in the books! What a fantastic weekend! I will keep my storytelling here at a minimum and save those words for a magazine article I'm writing on the show.

The show starts off early for us at the host hotel parking lot before the Friday Reliability Run.



Dad's 52 Merc


Hub & Gloria Harness' El Camino, still looking timeless after 30 years.










Our buddy Rick (ricksherl here on the HAMB) just finished his 31 Coupe with the help of his 89 year old father. Well finished enough to drive up to the show, Rick has some plans to finish his new ride out. Ben Dragdaddy's picked Rick's ride for his special award at the show.



Pretty soon it was off for the Reliability Run. Dan Greenburg and myself hopped in the Merc with Dad and took off a few minutes early so we could catch everyone on the run.





Aaron Lawrence of Fast A.L.'s Upholstery leading the pack.


Dan Stears' ride always looks good but looks great rolling down the road.




Mike Burchett's beautiful 55 Chevrolet








Dr. Dave's Merc





That's it for now, see you at a show!

Travis

Awesome pics Travis! Wish we could've made the reliability run but had to wait til the little one got out of school. Maybe next year we will just pull him out a little early!

I am already experiencing a very enjoyable sense of deja vu viewing your excellent photos, Travis. Here's to many more get togethers just like it.

Ya need to get him out early. That way we have more time to teach him how to say "Ma" at the red lights.

Travis, as always great stuff man.

Wow Trav, you and Greenie togther is very cool. Hope he posts up some of his fine work on this event as well. Dewey is so cool, what a setting for this awesome event. The quality of rides at this event is superior, was hoping to see a shot of my brother T.J Mercury's bad ass blue rag top. Thanx for the trip and never leaving the farm. ~sololobo~
