Default Flashback: 2005 Lone Star Round Up



Seven years doesn't seem like a lot of time, but so much has changed since.*I can't tell you what it was like. I don't think anyone really could. But I can tell you what came to pass. I can tell you that.

Since 2005, I've left Kansas City for the h...

Congrats on the 3rd you old dog you!!! You've still got it!!!

Like your own personal family the Roundup family seems to be getting bigger and bigger as the years go on. When I was there in 2009 I'm sure it was way way bigger then years prior (although it did rain so it may have been smaller) and if I go this yeah I'll probably be blown away by how much it's grown in 3 years.


What's nice to know is that as big as shows get and as time passes and things change one thing we can count on is that a Flathead powered Ford Roadster painted black with '40 Ford wheels will always be cool.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR THIRD KID!

The 3 window in picture #3 in an inspiration to me.

And by the way 3 is my favorite number.

The days on the river/lake were so cool, I think I have pictures of some of the same cars from that year in my collection. I am of the opinion, as if it matters, Roundup is as good as it gets although Revolution is right behind it..

Sheeeyit. Doesnt seem like that long ago the first one was held at House Park Stadium. Then it seemed like Fiesta Shores was getting to small, and then the rain came and (heaven forbid) it was getting moved to the Heritage Center. There was a collective "cringe", but guess what? It only got better. Kudo's to Jefe and all of the Kontinentals for turning the LSR into one of the premier shows-events-happenings-kulture-activities in the whole damn country. It's a whole new decade of shows coming up, fella's. Can't wait!

Congrats on the new baby! I was going to Texas Tech at the time and drove my 65 Rivi from Lubbock that weekend. I found an undeveloped roll in my photo box about a month ago and was surprised to see it was form the 2005 show. Heres a few from that roll, I do miss that venue.

Wow. That was nice stoll back in time. RC is right. The LSRU means one thing and its rites of spring and the gathering of all of you here in our town is just so damn cool. The effort that many of you make to drive those cars here does not go unnoticed. It was cool to see Bob Bleed was here in 2005 as was McPhail and Jeff Myers and Bobby Walden and Dr Dan's Zephyr making the scene pre Gary Howard treatment and Aaron was there w/ the Lunar Lander, Don Dillard w/ his incredible '32 roadster, Aaron Labato w/ his Watson inspired chevy and many more. The coolest was the shots of S. Congress with the parking all to ourselves.......man has that ever changed now. That's the one thing I wish I could really turn the clocks back on, the fact that we no longer have S.Congress Ave to ourselves at night. The best parts about this show is really the reunion of sorts that this event brings especially w/ all the folks that here early on and make that annual pilgrimage to Austin. Thanks everyone for bringing in springtime w/ a bang !!
