    June is almost upon us which means we are on the heels of one hell of a car show. The 39th Annual MSRA Back To The 50's car show will be held June 22, 23, 24 in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2011 there were over 11,700 registered cars (1964 and older).

    Definetly something for everyone.:)

    Here is a little video I put together with the photos I took at Back To The 50's.

    I have already registered even though I won't have a car there....cheaper that way for admission. Can't wait its been probably 5 years since the last visit.
     
  6. Went for the day on Saturday last year, broke down outside the gate, got going and got inside and then the rain started and rained all day. Hoping for a better day this year.

    The swap meet on Sunday is great. There was a really nice stock 30 Ford Model A Coupe there last year at a reasonable price. I purchased some antique firefigthing equipment from the 1930's as well as a some license plates from 1931.
     
  16. Dad and lil brother will be there, we may. All up in the air at this time. Mpls is a second home to me.

    The Autoplex is an absolutely gorgous facility, it really is a sight to behold. This place is the ultimate in Man Caves and garages if you have an extra $100,000 laying around. I am out that way and am fortunate enough to attend their Cars and Coffee events. There are a lot of O.T. cars that reside at the Autoplex however, there are also some pretty sweet hot rods

    [​IMG]


    Here is a link profiling the facility, it really is something to see:

    My daughter told me that we were going to BTT50's this year, As she hasn't been in a while. But she has attended at least half of her 18 years,,,,,,,Hmmmn...Mini Donuts,PPG coloring contest,riding the overhead tram, going up in the space tower,The Dances,watching the crazies cruizin the fairgrounds after dark,seeing old friends,all the vendors,the SWAP MEET! wonderin how dad knows so many people so far from home,aunts and uncles, nephews, people watchin, what were they thinkin? And in my opinion ,the Largest amount of the coolest cars not competing for a trophy in the world.... Whooo Hooo can't wait.

    We love this show. We'll be there again with our 63 Falcon convertible.

    This year I'm thinking of putting the top up before we walk away from the car, just in case it starts raining when we're all the way across the fairgrounds.

    Hoping for cool sunny days.

    One of the best least covered events of the year.
    The fairgrounds is the perfect venue for this event period.

    Don't miss it!

    This show is Christmas in June for most of us guys. Been to all of em since day one. Still remember that one like it was yesterday. Should be interesting this year with some of the LA Roadsters and SR Road Tour. Just wish you could see it all in 3 days.
