    Yeah the pics that Bleed posted gave me a little chill down the spine. First of all I am always extremely excited for people when they decide to take that step in their life and get married. It's been the best choice in my life I know Paul probably feels the same. Couple that with a good group of friends that also happen to have some of the baddest rides out there and you have the making for as you call "a perfect day". When you can mix life's passions and it all blends smoothly like it was meant to be it;s a day to celebrate for sure. Family, Friends, & Hot Rods.....what else is there?

    Yeah,... your right, In conversation when someone brings up another Hot Rodder,... I picture his car or project first,.... (And I am one of those knuckle heads that say "It's not about the cars,... it's about the people" :eek:)

    Sounds like a great time for friends and family,.... I wish Paul and his new Bride all the best life has to offer.
  6. Same thing with me,,,I hear a name and associate with the owners car.

    I am so happy for Paul and Cammie and wish them the best,,:) HRP

    I was afraid that I was the only one afflicted with this disease. I can tell you all the details of a guys hotrod but pulling up his name that is buried in my gray matter someplace is always a problem. It will come to me but long after the embarrassment of the immediate situation.

    It looked like a nice day with fun stuff to look at in the parking lot. Much cooler than the few weddings that I attend. I hope they have a long happy life together.

    Good story, I have been blessed with a wife who can remember names and who belongs to who and has how many kids and grand kids of our car and boat friends.

    For more years than she wants to count car events were our main social outlet and although I almost always know which guy goes which car or which boat when we are out on the boat. We are Rob and Jean on Sea Dragon when out on the boat. Or the guy with the Australian Shepard when Harley takes me for another trip up the dock and down an interesting path. With the 48 I think I am known as that guy who never seems to get his truck done.

    Congrats to Paul and Cammie and may the two of you spend many a fun hour cruising through life together.

    Much well wishes to Paul and his new bride. The best thing that could happen to them is to be able to stand where I am today. Where is that? Married to an angel that I have been blessed with for the last 46 years this July. You'll know it's "right" when each passing year is better than the year before. congatulations!!!

    I don't have that problem because none of my friends have cool cars (truth be told, I don't really have any friends because I spend every waking moment and many sleeping ones working on my car or bikes). Even two of my "valued acquaintances" that own hot rod shops drive a newer dodge truck, and a scion... and I don't picture those.

    I wish I could say that I'm finishing my truck for our wedding for my fiancee, but she couldn't care less. You lucky dogs!

    Ya, but mysta2 I can see your CB360! No, I've got the same affliction - if your car is not around, I probably won't recognize you. I seem to have room in my minds eye for the faces of about 10 - 15 peoples faces outside of my main group of friends and family. I just got a phone call earlier in the day from one of my fellow club members - the name JOE appears on my phone - the brain sees a bitchin' '29 closed cab and a '27 modified. There's got to be a 12 step program for us out there somewhere....
