    I can't quite see the tongue in your cheek from the other side of the world. You do have your tongue in your cheek....don't you? :eek:

    HEMI32. The coupe looks a little out of place in that tall crowd.

    Good memories in these photos, that is the only picture of my 33 phaeton I've seen in the blue paint job before I painted it red. That also looks like the blond I've been sleeping with for past few years in the middle of the dance floor dancing with Dino...............................:D

    I really miss that kind of rod run today. Parking in the dirt, drinking beer, having a good time, not dealing with too many rules, not too much political correctness, just beautiful cars, beautiful girls, what a fun day!

    where are all the sling chairs...these people are actually up on their feet having a great time. Those 60's styled sedans look like a lot of fun too.

    HEMI32 These photos brought back back such great memories,living in Castro Valley it was so exciting to have the Hot Rods come to the park every year. Andy and his crew put on a great show every year. Free beer ,soda and hot dogs, a killer band and hundreds of Hot Rods, it was as good as it gets. I would like to add some of my photos from 1972.​
