    Now the Cinematic we would have loved to been at. I would welcome the story, if the the board would want the show up in SR's pages'. If that were so, maybe you could round up some hi-res photos and jot a story of the event. Of all the shows so far my favorite is the Lead Sled show over Labor Day in Parsippany NJ.[/quote]


    You will have to talk w/Ryan here on the board about the Cinematic story he is the Administrator. Believe me I am not a writer.

    Not much to see where I live but it is only 20 min drive to Paradise or 25 min drive to the Garden of Eden.

    You know it is not always the big stuff, there is so many little nooks & cranny along some of our back roads. A great place to eat, or a hidden rock formation, water fall,
    old grave yards, junk yards, old motels. Things that make a road trip memorable.

    Buffalo, New York. While it does not attract too many Big shows, the small ones make up for that all summer long. Cruise nights had cars numbering in the hundreds every week and did not slow up until first snowfall. Besides that, Buffalo is like number 1 or 2 for best medium cities for art and has a great music scene. Architecture is second to none which should make for some good backgrounds.

    I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
    A place where even squares can have a ball
    We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
    And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all.

    Its hard for me to call anywhere a home town; Now that's rocket science. Where I live now has lots of horses and the only corvette plant in the world, and one of great wonders of the world called mammoth cave.

    Within a couple of hours drive or less, here in Grants Pass we have Crater Lake National Park, (the deepest and clearest lake in the US) Oregon Caves National Monument, numerous old gold mines, the Oregon Coast, plus much more. Most of the mentioned are best visited in the summer with the top down, or windows opened, with no hurry getting there.

    from Ney, OH

    Bryan, OH- voted #33 on the Top 100 Best small towns in America. It's the home of Spangler Candy Co., makers of Dum-Dum Pops, and Ohio Art of Etch-A-Sketch fame.

    During the summer months there's a car show around the restored 1880's courthouse on the town square every Thursday, concerts by the City Band in the pavilion on the square every Wednesday.

    The Plaza Motel would be a great place to stay once here. It's a motel just like you'd see in the 50's or 60's if you were on a road trip. Once here, drive out to Stoney Ridge Winery for a bottle of excellent local wine, and cruise over to Sauder Village (the ones who make Sauder Furniture) and explore a vintage pioneer town.

    Lots to do and see! And I don't have far to drive...!

    palisade co. home of the palisade peach festival every august and even more important, only about 15 miles down the road from ol' darryl zipp and his zipper motors rod shop!!
     
  29. Orange, CA - In the heart of Orange County (the real one, not where dysfunctional families build ugly Choppers). We have a ton of Hot Rod Shops - Circle City Hot Rods, Altered Engineering, Leonardo's Authentic Hot Rods, Dagal's Rod & Custom, C.W. Moss, Modern Performance (Nova stuff), the Chevy Truck Store, The Chevy Car Store, The Ford Truck Store, Vintiques, Reid's Hot Rod Parts, Chassis builders SAC and Flatout Engineering, All American Hot Rod's etc. Pretty good for a town of 130,000 (small for So Cal). Even Barry White got his start in Orange (but don't hold that against us)
    We've got Angels Stadium and the Anaheim Pond (now called Honda Center) right on our border. The Old Town area has lots of cool old Victorian houses, many over 100 years old (which is old for Cali) and puts on a great car show in the Traffic Circle each April. Old town is even on the National Register of Historic Places and is the largest such district in Cali. We've got a small cruise night on Tuesday's at George's Place, a burger joint. It's only about 15-20 minutes to the Original Donut Derelicts or the Anti Donut Cruise, which ever suits your mood.
    On top of that is only 17 miles to the beach, a half hour to the NHRA museum and Pomona Race Track, about an hour to the Peterson Museum, 40 minutes to Irwindale Speedway, 45 minutes to Fontana Speedway.
    And Jimmy Shine even lives here:cool:
