    Get comfortable guys, this is gonna take a Long time to upload. Basically Eric got Dave (Kustomrace) and I into Cobo on Thursday night, so I took hella pictures, and now I'm going to share them with you. A few you have seen already, but I don't care. I'm devoting my entire afternoon to this thread, so you guys had better like it.

    So I'm trying to figure out what time to leave my house to get to Detriot, when Sethro calls and tells me hes already on the way there.................
    IN A 59 BEL AIRE!!!

    WTF MAN!!?! I could've caught a ride with you!!!


    I hear him conversing with the other people in the car about letting me tag along, it went like this:
    "Is it alright if Monterey John comes with us?"
    "Hell yeah."

    "Get in your truck right now and head over to Ray's house, we're getting ready to leave."
    I hit the the ATM and roll every stop sign between my house and his. I get there and they are loading up.
    There are seven of us altogether. The driver Jay, Sethro, his Girlfriend Tina, her son Josh, Eric, Ray, and "Monterey John"
    [​IMG]
    Here's Jay and Ray fucking with the Carburator on the straight six, it was running rough as all hell, idling super low and had a piece of wire tied to the clutch pedal so he could yank it back up when it stuck to the floor. My window didn't roll down, and the door was having trouble latching. The radio didn't work, and the draft coming through the windows was intense. Not to mention the fairly large puddle of oil it left on Eric's driveway.

    Let's go.

    backing into the parking spot. The gentlemen on the right backing him in asked Jay if wanted to "Turn it around"
    Which he translated into, "You know.......candy paint, shaved handles..........I own a chop shop"

    "Uh, no thanks man, have a good day."
    [​IMG]
    We left the car and made our way over to Cobo, with Sethro leading the charge with his pinstriping box.

    Here we see the Biscuit all finished. Black steelies, old school driving lights, and a fresh coat of Krylon. She looked clean, really clean.

    It was about this time I'm trying to take a picture of my friend posing with some chicks on they're cheapie camera when I feel some asshole stepping all over my Chuck Taylors!!! I turn around and its this crazy looking Grecian dude with an ear-to-ear grin, followed by a goofy-looking canuk, and a big tattooed teddy bear with a Los Boulevardos jacket.
    "WHAT'S UP FUCKERS!?!?!"

    Harry and Adamo's uncle John talked about Pontiacs for so long that our stomaches began to rumble, Adamo suggested we hike a couple blocks down to grab a burger. Word.

    Harry showing you just what it feels like when your about to be be buttsexed.
    I swallowed my burger, and Harry had to wait until I was almost done to remind me to take a picture of it.
    [​IMG]
    There you go asshole!! Feel better!?! Peep the "cutlery". Not silverware, not forks and knives, but "Cutlery"

    The waitress came by and asked if it was altogether, or seperate. I pionted at Adamo and said, "Yeah, hes the President, he's got it."

    "What the fuck do I look like, Bill Gates!?!"

    "Hahaha. No, but you dolook like MC Serch."
    A few minutes of bullshitting passed, and Adamo picked up the bill andthe tab...............
    FOR SEVEN PEOPLE!!!!

    Finally, it was time to leave, and they ducked out so quick I didn't even have time to say goodbye to my buddies.
    :(
    We went outside in the thunder and lightning, and made our way back to the Bel Aire. we all piled in, and it wouldn't start.
    [​IMG]
    Jay gets out and chokes it, while Ray cranks it over. After continually rolling backwards, we all get out in the rain and lightning and push it back up onto the decline, so the tired motor doesn't have to propel the big boat uphill. We get in and she fires up. Jay has bad eyes, and bad wipers. Not to mention $80 worth of vintage water decals on the dash.

    Sethro wanted me to put a disclaimer stating that he was not actaully sleeping in this picture so....
    *Disclaimer*: Sethro was not actaully sleeping in this picture.

    Jay, Ray, and Josh.
    [​IMG]
    The car was running rough enough to where he didn't want to chance taking each one of us home individually, so he took us back to Sethro's farm and went home. He gave us all a ride back to Ray's house, where my truck was, and they went off to get food, and I went off to bed.
    The end.
    :cool:

    That Deuce roadster in the first picture was one of my favorites,That color really looks great on that car.I think there was a 56 F100 there that was the same color. I dont think it would work on all cars,but it sure looks great on that deuce.
