And it just occurred to me that I forgot to thank two groups:

1. The Yay-Hoos of putting on the mini-bikes. I can't stand those little things and even I had a blast watching you guys. GREAT job. Really helped put some wind in the sails on Friday.

2. Flyrite. For the first time ever I missed the open house cuz I had to work. So sorry fellas...

This was my first time at the LSR. I was without my car but still had a great time. Even my wife who isn't a car nut like me loved South Congress during the evening. So much so that we have provisionally booked our hotel for next year. This was the BEST show that I have ever been to.

We got to the grounds after the "Garage Swim" and were delighted to be waved right on into the big ol' barn - it was a most welcome safe haven. Then we had to change the starter on my brothers A/Caddie - IN the nice dry barn. Then, JV started playing and I couldn't believe he was performing for us! The whole thing just started feeling really old school, funky assed, hot rods in a barn, car show cool. Wash up and a quick beer and all was right in the world.

My sister's Blonde Aces vintage clothing booth was in the nice dry and warm front hall and the place was packed with the ladies shopping hard. The other vendors were swamped too.

But I was worried for the Kont's and the charities, but by Saturday noon you could see the place was gonna be a record event - and it was.

Even in the worst conditions, the Round Up is still the very BEST show in America for my money.

The family and I had a BLAST!
This was our first time to the Round Up being new Texans
Wife and I went on Friday w/o the kiddos and I gotta tell ya there was something special about that. I was disappointed in the morning knowing the weather that was upon us (and bummed I couldn't ride the Trump) but when we got to the show all those feelings went away. Rain pouring down, bitchen hot rods/customs, people smiling and laughing.....just having a great time!
Thanks to everyone who put on the show!
Ryan-It was a pleasure to meet you and your wife. Thanks again for bringing us gearheads together. The H.A.M.B. is truly a great place.
It's GREAT being a Texan!

I am really glad I got to make it this year. The show in the rain was just as good as in the sun. It is all about the people in my opinion. The ASS party was a swell time as well, thanks guys for letting me sneak my truck in there! I got to meet Cole Foster too which was one of my highlights of the weekend. Bass's new T-shirts are the coolest ever. buy one.

When I got home I found that there were only 7 pictures on my camera. They pretty much tell the whole story of the weekend. I also want to nominate VAPHEAD for father of the year. ha ha ha

I finally got to hit all the events this year from Mercury Charlie's and ASS on Wed, to Reggie and Thirsty Thursday. the show and South Congress, ASs again and Flyrite. Man no wonder I'm tired. Thanks to all who help put things together. I also got to meet a bunch of great people and see some great cars.

Things turned out great!

This was my first show and I saw the rain Friday, I thought ahh hell, my first roundup and its going to rain. Much to my surprise, the show was awesome. Friday was great dispite the rain and Saturday was absolutely kick ass. The whole parking lot was filled with hot rods and customs. This definitly won't be my last trip to the roundup. Thanks Ryan for a great story as well.

Wow! 4 days of non stop fun!! Thanks to everyone for everything. I totally agree about Friday, crappy rainy day turned into one of the best Roundup days ever. Steve and the Kontinentals just have a way of making everything great. Norm & Reggie did a great job with the swap meet. I was broke by noon! Really good to see you and Marcie, all of our out of state HAMB friends we get to see twice a year as well as the ones from Texas we see more often. I missed the meet & greet because my phone battery died, no alarm. Ken & Vickie make awesome smoothies! Thanks to Jason & Whitney for a great Sunday afternoon. Nice to end the weekend half way home!
