    Yeah... ya know.. .this practice should come to an end next year.

    While I appreciate the enthusiasm that people have for getting their car in the show, its not REALLY what its all about. It started as a little bit of a joke, and from one car/owner in particular that went to some pretty extreme measures the first year, and then that was topped the second year when someone actually spray painted some very nice, but certainly off topic wheels black....

    Its run its course. Time to bring it back to the real spirit of the show.

    Hay, THE CHIEF. RULES SAY NO TRAILERED VEHICLES, but the LONGEST DRIVE would be cool as long as you could prove you didn't have a trailer and tow vehicle parked at a local motel to take you back to Mich. Colorado Idaho or where ever.
    I big thanks to all of you for the photos. Now I can kick myself for not braving the cold and the rain. Hope to make the Gartlits thing on the 20th.

Here's my booth with some artwork from the show....I cleaned up and sold a ton of prints. Thanks a lot to Alan and Melissa for putting on a kick ass hot rod show!

    Just like a regular belt with a great idea from a new club member, lots of Crown Royal, famous leather crafter Jeff Phipps, rivets, a CNC machine at work, some "scrap" materials, and Sonny Depalma's awesome finishing touch.

    Are my eyes deceiving me or did someone cut the roof off of that black Mercury? If so, does anyone have any close up pictures of it? I'd like to see how they handled the bed and rearend treatment.
