    I don't think it's loosing steam. There were a lot of cars, and many I had not seen before. But there were definitely fewer customs. Maybe there are just too many similar events too close together now.

    The Last Run I try not to miss is the years when they give away a rod - even if it is a pro built street rod. To me, Stray Kats is the best for real car guy customs and fun.

    I don't like the new cars that are straight off the lot, maybe custom wheels and neon. Doesn't excite me. But I do like seeing young enthusiasts starting with whatever they can start with. Just like most of us did as kids. Sad thing is, their generation doesn't have the cool cars to pick from, not as easy to find as it was for us.

    Had a great time at the show. I agree that the Stray Kat shows are the best. Gotta love the cruise night though.

    Hey Jack, Stray Kats have nine lives. That is a long time....

    I've missed very few Ark City shows since the 11th one and I always seem to
    have a good time. This year "car wise" was disappointing but that seems to be
    the trend of open shows. I still had a blast because I ran into a lot friends. We
    did one lap and it took us over two hours.

    I had to deliver some parts to Jeff (fink'd) so we took a late model. Besides doing
    my delivery service, I wanted to see "Chaotic Customs" new Merc build and I wasn't
    disappointed at all. Chris and his team of family did an awesome job and should be
    very proud of their Sled. (See pictures posted above.)

    Highlight of the weekend, I picked up a kool poster that was already framed. Some guy
    named McPhail did the art work.

    After the show we cruised by Jeff Meyer's place and hung out for an hour or so and
    swaped road rash stories. Its so kool to have so many kustom people around the Mid-West!!

    Kongtrats to Chaotic Customs for another kool build!!

    Happy Trails,

    Mick

    I looked all over for you Mick.I was told you were there. O well, I was a little disapointed in the show myself. But that MERC kicks butt.

    The show is big enough it makes it easier to dodge people.......Ha, ha, ha, just kid'n.

    I hate that I missed ya guiys. I wasn't aware that you were in the park or I would
    have shot up a flare to let ya guys know where I was at. See ya guys soon.....

    Did I mention that Chaotic Customs had a Merc at the show that was way too kool....

    Happy Trails,

    Mick

    From a woman's persepective, any show that has real bathrooms instead of porta-johns is a hit with me!
