Default Royboy goes to the 2012 Iron Invasion!

When Coolstuff told me that he was planning a show for the weekend that was previously the Hunnert weekend I said immediately that I'd be there. When he told me where it was going down I figured out it was a 12 hour drive and booked a room. It was worth every minute of the drive!

I hit Woodstock, IL around 5 on Friday, checked into the hotel and then went over to the McHenry Fairgrounds to see what was up.



Some braved the cold weather and camped on site, congrats to you, but I'm not that guy any more


Coolstuff's own ride






The Anderson 36







Cars were already parked and ready for spectators.



The Chrisman Bros. Coupe was on display in one of the 6 indoor show areas.






Bobwop brought over this sectioned shoebox roadster









The Merc looks great with paint!








click on any of the photos to go to the entire 573 image gallery. I will post and other set of shots around noon today and more tonight so subscribe and stay tuned!

See ya at a show,

Travis

I thought it was a great show and the turn out was great, esp for the first year of the show. Some really nice cars showed up and I didn't run into not one person in a bad mood or with an atttitude even with the cold temps. Congrats and thanks to Coolstuff for putting on a very good show!

Thank you everyone! Now on to part 2!

Still on Friday night, just a couple more then on to Saturday morning for the main event!



Saturday!























The car looks a lot better with paint and without the tire from the Vintage Torque Fest in field underneath!
















That's it for part 2, 20 more next time I can get to the computer!

See you at a show,

Travis

When you say "See you at a show" you ain't kidding. Is there one you don't go to?
