    Loaded up at o'dark thirty and took off for the Nats in Louisville!

    Lots of rain and crazy skies on the way, this is about sunrise

    Finally made it through the rain and to louisville, I really dig this building!

    Pulling into registration I see this

    Which means you know who must be close by! Bobk is quite the magician or race car driver...he was just in Salina in a Corvette! It wasn't long until I spied him helping out with registration

    After getting all registered I headed to the most important place to be the early bird, the swap meet! Getting up at 3:30 had to have some perk!

    Lots of body panels and rusty stuff but this little car caught my eye first!

    There wasn't much set up yet in the swap so I headed into the vendors buildings. This Cooper Indy car Pete & Jakes brought is way cool!

    There are a few feature cars set up in the lobby already. So far this roadster built by Lowrey's Auto Restoration out of NH has my pick!

    I'm still getting used to this new iPhone and the HAMB app so I hope it goes through! I'm going to keep walking and see who or what else I can find to show you guys!

    On to day two...

    Started off the day going to Franks at the recommendation of local Hambers to pick up meat and cheese for lunch. Neat little deli!

    A few more swap meet pics...

    Great little coupe,they're asking $50k for it I hear

    I love this sedan, it has a 21 stud flattie! They're looking to get $14,500

    This little mower is pretty rad, it is the size of a push mower with a seat. It's called a Mustang!

    And on case you were wondering, yes it is hot!
