Default Relix Riot #1

A quick note here, and HUGE thanks to the Relix guys for putting on a great first time event at the Gilmore Museum! We, and everybody we talked to, had a ball, or more correctly, a RIOT! Day dawned a little cool and foggy, but by about noon the haze burned off and it was a great Sunday afternoon. Cool cars, cool people, it was really great putting faces with some HAMB'rs, thanks for coming up and saying Hi!

Brian,
It was good to meet you and see the Fordillac in person and my wife enjoyed looking inside your travel trailer. Thanks! Oh, and it was a good show.

We were very pleased with the turnout we had. Thanks to everyone who came out and showed your vehicle. We appreciated your support. The show was certainly a huge success. We spoke with the Gilmore guys and they were pleased as well. They are already looking forward to next year! So keep it in mind for next year.

I have to agree with ya Brian and give a big attaboy to the Relix. Really nice job. Its pretty nerve racking puttin on that first show and these guys did a fantastic job. No doubt it will grow by leaps and bounds in the comming years. I know I'll be a regular.
On a more personal note I was glad to finally get a chance to meet you and your lovely wife in person after only seeing the cars and trailers at so many previous events. TCT and hot rods!

Nice show at an AWESOME venue. This was my first trip to the Gilmore and it lived up to everything I've heard about it. Great to meet you Brian. The Relix show will only get better as time goes on.

Anybody know who owns the blue suede shoebox that was parked next to the gift shop? I'd like some info on the chop.

None of us got a chance to take many pictures during the show so i hope someone else did.
Once everyone was gone we couldnt resist the scenery. Here is a few of us that were left:

Here are a few more photos. I thought I took more (in fact, I did, but I know you guys are tired of seeing my car) but mostly I just carried the camera around all day. I was so busy talking to people I didn't take many photos!

Some highlights of the show for us:

Having a wedding reception going on Saturday night while we were gathering. Hot Rods and choppers blasting around to the wedding singer in the background. We (OK, just me!) wanted to crash the reception, but somebody over-ruled on that.

Watching some of the Relix guys unloading bikes from the back of a pickup, and one of 'em said "This is like trying to lift a car!" No wonder that truck was so low...

Hanging out around a campfire in that cool little Scotch grill. I gotta get me one of them!

Dennis sleeping (or, trying to) in his truck bed on a cot. So much for building Street Rodder cover cars! (Maybe I should help you on that teardrop, eh Denny?)

Being awakened at 1 am by a chopper firing up. I didn't even mind.

Forgetting my PIN # trying to get cash for registration and the money machine rejecting my card after too many tries . It's funny now...Luckily, Kim had 40 bucks in her purse, so we got to stay. And, I didn't spend any money on junk I didn't really neet at the swap meet...I kinda wanted a shirt tho.

Seeing the look on the elderly gents face who stepped into our trailer while one of the pin-up girls was being photographed inside on the bed. He stayed in there a LOOOOOONG time and had a huge, sort of glassy eyed grin on his face when he finally stepped out! Priceless.

Seeing Nick be made a "Relix" member. Now that you're a "made" man, get your coupe back together, OK?

We had a great time! The Gilmore is a fantastic setting for a show, well worth the 2 hour and 20 minute drive for us to get out there...

The Relix's are a good bunch of guy's, everyone of them that I talked to, were nice & helpful...

...flyinbrian, I saw you pull in, I headed your way, but you were gone by the time I got there, just wanted to introduce myself...the '36 looks bitchin' in person!

I figured there would be a ton of pics of cars from the show, so I mostly took pics of the drag cars on display inside...

You deserved that. I'm not a fan of those cars chopped but that one really did pull it off well.
Congrats.
