I've been going to the Houston Autorama for 38 years. The few times I missed it, I was away from home in the Navy. In Houston it's a Thanksgiving tradition for car guys. I used to go as a dreamer. Even when I had a car, I never entered for various reasons. The main one being that my T Bucket is my daily and I couldn't leave it locked up for the duration of the show. This year, an outdoor exhibit was added for Fri. and Sat. during the day. The times were 9-4pm and afterwards you just drive home. The fee was $50 each day, which seems high, but the goody package made up for the cost. Two tickets for the inside show, a t-shirt and a plaque. A SMALL plaque. So, this year, I had a 38 year old dream come true. I entered my hotrod in the autorama. The number of outside cars was great. We were lined up on the street right in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center. I made a few friends and folks seemed to like my T. Maybe because it was the only one. So, here's some pics that I thought were HAMB friendly. There were more, but I spent the better part of the day outside. I may get more tomorrow. Anyway..... here's what caught my eye. Enjoy! Here's my T FINALLY being shown at the Autorama. My dad would have been proud. This trunk lid belongs to a Chevy shoebox owned by my friend Jerry, President of the "H-Bombs". He just got his ride repainted and these stripes kick major ass! The "H-Bombs". Now..... random rides.
