  1. Great job on the pics, and thanks for sharing them- the Turkey Run is definitely on my bucket list!!!

    Do you (or does anyone) have more pics or info on this speedster?

    Sorry Mac. I don't have any more photos. It bore the markings of a Stutz Bearcat. I think it was a replica but it looked to be old. I don't know enough about them to tell the difference.

    Thanks for the pics, I see a few cars I recognize...I actually didn't make it this year, I ended up deciding to tear up the city of Savannah instead...driving home on Sunday I saw a crap ton of cars on I-95 so that was nice to see...ah oh well maybe next year, if and when I get that shoebox up and running...Thanks again for posting!

    I think my favorite car posted is that chopped black Merc with gold scallops ;)

    Why the primed quarter panel?

    Thanks man :eek:. She just got new quarters, rockers, and floors and the whole bottom of the car and chassis refurbed. I have to do some more bodywork here and there and a couple of things before the whole car gets a repaint. PS-It looks black in photos but it's actually dark green.

    I bought one of the sets. You don't see them too often.

    Nice shots Bill, too bad we only saw you on 95 on the way home. We had to crawl home cause The engine in Phipps' car was hurt. But we made it home.

    Now that's what I'm talkin bout!!!! Just the coverage I was lookin for.... Much thanks!!!
     
  22. This was my first Turkey run, your pics are proof that there were some great cars there, but you really had search them out amongst a sea of off topic stuff, some of which was cool but others were downright strange.

    I was impressed with the swap meet, the venue, and watching the cars cruise on Atlantic Blvd. Definately some high HP stuff runnin the streets.

    I had one but lost it. It belongs to HAMB member "yaril". There are some photos on his website. Besides being on the main page, go to the projects section and it's on the list under 59 ElCamino. http://www.yarilswork.com/

    Thanks for posting the pics Skirv, I wanted to say hey to you and your son, but when we pulled in Friday my alternator bearing was frozen tight, so we had to rip it off right there in the HAMB lot and I found a local guy that had one on the shelf for $77.00, so that blew Friday up, and I brought the wife and kids this year so it was all a blur of junk food and bathroom breaks! I wanted to meet Don and the boys as well but the only one of the clan I was fortunate to meet was Don Jr., I got to say hi to their rods though! Thanks again Gregg for saving the spots, we tried to keep the riff-raff out!!...Brian
