    I'm definitely gonna have to make it down next year, I just got sidetracked with catching up on work around here since it's been raining so damned much...the interior on that green T is amazing, and that little blue modified looks like fun...

  8. Truly remarkable collection of vintage tin. That little green T-bucket is totally cosmic!:eek: Looks like a Hot Wheels or Keith Weisner drawing come to life.:cool:
    I find it interesting how different geographic area's have a unique "vibe" and look to the hobby. (it's a good thing folks:))
    Without knowing upfront, where the location, for this show was, could almost tell it was Mid-west. Gasser Corvair was a dead give-away.:D
    All original/stock Willy's coupe was a treat to see. Nice job.!!!

    Had a good time and a nicely done show, the fairgrounds is a nice venue. We caravaned down old highway 61 from North Branch for a scenic drive. My car is pictured in photos 8, 9, 10 and my dads chopped '55 in the background.

    Did your Tudor find a new owner? I thought it was a good buy for someone in need of a project.

    Saw you at the gate when I was leaving, but then ran into Popeye and talked to him for a while. By the time we finished, you had taken off on your board track bike.

    Great show Beau. Hope you guys do it again next year.

    Wow! Thanks guys for the great pictures! A huge thank you to Alan (choptop) for brining the show here to Minnesota, and for letting us (The Delinquents cc) to be a part of the show! Also Jeff (Titus) deserves a Big Thank you as he was a major part of bringing the show here, and helped enormously advertising, setting up, and making the show a success! I was blown away with the amazing quality of hot rods and Kustoms that made it out! This was by far one of the biggest showings of the best cars around!! So thank you all for making the show a huge hit! Plan for next year! We will have flyers for it soon!

    We had a good time, I did not take any photos. A photo of Moriarty's dual engine mini bike would be nice to see, I wish I took a video of him starting it up.

    And none of you pussies would race me on the minibike track, I had to do all the exibition driving myself.

    I really didnt do that much, Alan and Melissa are the ones to credit, the idea was spawned over a few dinners over a couple years, ive been to 3 of the other Billetproof shows, Florida, Washington and California, and they had mention to me and Marcy that he wanted to do another show somewhere. we talked and brought up the idea of having one in Mn as there are very few traditional shows. I had always like the vibe of the billetproof shows and figured it could be a good fit around here. We talked a few more times about it at dinners after other billetproof shows but still nothing was serious. Finally one day Alan called me and told me he was more serious about doing it, so i gave him a few leads on locations, one being the Washington county fairgrounds, again ive been to his other shows so i knew the kinda venue he was looking for and thought it might be a good fit. I also got him in touch with Ranier of the Delinquints car club as Ranier had also talked to me a bunch of times about wanting to do a car show, so it was a good fit for everyone. Im just happy to have a cool car show so close as i live about 5 miles from the fairgrounds.

    Bj, Ill make sure i have a running mini bike next year so you dont have to run by yourself!

    Did anyone get photos of the Model A pickup that was out back? It was a dark brown and done up perfectly in a pre-war fashion.

    My surf band, Thee Unholy 3, had a great time playing at the show. We even played a few requests. I think I was the only guy with a tie at the show.

    Thanks for having us and we hope to be invited back next year.

    I do regret not buying the two deep dish TTD clone wheels for the truck. Oh well.

    Great show!
