Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by timwhit, May 24, 2015.

  1. I managed to make the big "B" this year and had a great time. Some great cars and the best people watching venue on the planet. Here's a few pics, hope you enjoy. Tim 003.JPG 005.JPG 006.JPG 007.JPG 008.JPG 010.JPG 011.JPG 012.JPG 013.JPG 016.JPG 017.JPG 018.JPG 019.JPG

  2. Here's a few more. It may take a few posts to get them all loaded. There were 12 guys together from Huntsville Alabama, several from Michigan and from all over the place actually. 020.JPG 021.JPG 022.JPG 023.JPG 024.JPG 025.JPG 026.JPG 027.JPG 028.JPG 029.JPG 030.JPG View attachment 2913190 031.JPG

  5. There was a bunch of really cool bikes there as well. The last shot is my cabrio sitting on the service drive of what was Standard oil station in the sixties...I worked there for a while. Tim 049.JPG 050.JPG 051.JPG 052.JPG 053.JPG 054.JPG 055.JPG 056.JPG 057.JPG

  7. OK...think I got them all. I'm not great at adding text so if you have questions about a specific car just ask and I'll try to answer you. Tim

    While we are heading into winter, with early snow hitting a large part of the country, it is nice to see people enjoying their cars 1/2 a world away. Thanks for posting!

  15. Bleu: Sorry to hear your guys had a problem but, great they were able to get on home. I'm concerned for the Alabama gang driving home today! as well as the group from Michigan.

    Thanks for all the great pictures. Cool stuff.
     
  22. Not sure about the number of entries, I meant to ask but was pre--occupied with some other stuff. Several hundred cars in a compact layout surrounded by old Big homes, Phoenix Hill tavern and of course the cemetery. I don't mean this to be derogatory, but it would be cool if they could park the rat rods in the cemetery...what with all the skulls and rats and cob webs..know what I mean?

    Is this car sitting at ride height or does it have airbags on the rear, do you know please. When you say Rat Rods, I notice a nice '33 Plymouth Sedan that looked like it had original paint, is this an example of a rat rod ? Thanks for your reply.
     
  24. I believe , looking at the rear shot of the car, that this is the ride height, no bags. The rear of the body is @ 5" off the ground. I think the Plymouth you are thinking of, if your referring to the four door car, is an Essex (I somehow remember reading the name plate on top of the grill). Besides it, there was a mid to late thirties Graham there that was dark blue with black fenders. Both real nice cars, neither are even close to being rat rods. Ti

    Pretty cool show where is it located
     
  30. Enloe: Just got around to going back and looking at the thread. It is held at Phoenix Hill tavern in the east side of downtown. It will likely move next year but we'll cover that ahead of time. Tim
