I guess so! Perhaps the pic of Joyo & Tito gives it away?
Why don't you require pics of the cars registering online?
Piss and Moan...god damn, just go and try to have a good time. Or not.
LMAO. Shows like this beat the hell out of over-the-top car shows like oreillys, that have too many rules and charge out the butt for food. I had a "ok" time at oreillys. For me, I like to see car shows where people have built their machine in a 2 car garage or a small barn without a body shops' help. I was sickened by the rat fink vendor. They have gotten carried away with that crap. 50 bucks for a rat fink card board poster(new, not old). wtf. Ed roth would roll in his grave if he knew.
Been there both times and plan on heading out that way again if gas don't hit $10.00 a gallon. Bastards gouging us now and went up 31 cents a gallon since Thursday. The last show was a little off but we still had a lot of fun and saw a lot of our Austin friends.
Ray want to meet up in Navasota the weekend of BP? then travel to giddings
Aside from the heat, the show was pretty decent. There were some good looking cars out there, the brisket was pretty damn good. I'll most likely head out there again, this time in my '56.
You bet and we will have several cars out of Conroe with us. When the time comes we will set a place and time to meet you there and you got my cell#
Maybe I will get to meet you this time. I missed you at the Top Notch a while back but will be at the BP again
If I get correct size wheels on my car by june, I will be driving down there from the dallas area. I wouldn't mind a few driving partner's to roll down there with in case of car issues.
so whats up with the bikes?no newer motor than a shovelhead? or just a bobber styled bike?
Shovel and older american bikes, up to early 70's style Japanese and European choppers and bobbers.
I've got several vintage bikes myself and we'd love to have more bikes at the show.
Hey, I have a newbie question. I haven't been to this show before, and I am definitely going this year. Should I bring my truck? It's a 1960 ford f100 SWB, 223 straight six, 3 SPD on the column, stock intake with a split header and dual exhaust. It is also a total POS, just barely out of the flooded brush pile where it lived for years before being resurrected. Will I feel like a total douchebag driving an unfinished (barely started?) project, or should I just drive my Subaru and walk in? I eventually want my truck to be pretty traditional in appearance, but I don't want to be accused of bringing a "r##" to the show.
Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for your comments and newbie flames
Drive it and have fun, to hell with anybody who dont like it. The trip to the show is usually more fun than the show when your with a group of people.
Looking good...and a bump..
A ya ready for another hot Billetproof Texas?
Should I bring out a water slide for everyone? That could get ugly fast...
We could already use that---it's freakin' hot here today!
marcy on the waterslide? SEXY!!!
had a great time last year. I drove 10 hours in my 59 apache and plan on doing it again with my pops in the 53 dodge.
Looks like i'll be rolling on bent rims(my wheels are still on backorder from WV). No matter, I can still hit 60 mph easily :O
GREAT news... the forecast says only 95 degrees in Giddings on Sat!!!
this will be the first Billetproof Texas without triple digit temps.
will there be beer on site, or do I need to bring a 6 pack of highlife?
Gonna get to cross that new bridge?
I used to live in East Feliciana Parish.
I live three miles away from it. Hopefully I will get my brakes finished so I can make it.
Beer sales on site, all proceeds go to benefit the Giddings Volunteer Fire Dept.
Made the very first Billetproof Texas and really enjoyed it despite the heat but had to skip last year's. Couldn't get off work. Got the alarm set for tomorrow's trip though. Looking forward to it. See ya there!
This show is always a great time with great people
