    Featured this year is an old East Coast hot rod taken from storage after many years. The new owner, an anonymous South Shore collector, is freshening it up so it's roadworthy, but will otherwise leave it "as found" for this show. It's a cool little Model A with a ton of trick things built into it.

    It will be in a reserved spot for viewing ( next to all the other cars).

    He doesn’t have a trouble light though. With that I can get a quick diagnosis rectally. If that doesn’t kill you, we can go to plan B.

    Sounds like it’s going to be a great show. Can’t wait to see the “featured car” looks pretty wild.

    The last 2 pictures Mike put on were Ben LeBlanc's car. His FIRST hot rod which he started on around 3 or 4 years ago.

    He did a build thread on here which is inspirational to say the least. We got to be friends during this time, and he impressed me with his ability and willingness to dive into a very needy Model "A" He's since graduated from school, and is an Engineer working out of state.

    Forgot to mention, he was 19 or 20 when he started this car in his Dad's driveway, outdoors. Hat's off to him!! Ronnie Wheeler and I chased him down to the Gathering last year, and that coupe SCREWS!!

    This is a great event. As stated, we chased Ben's hot rod coupe down 128 and 24 last year. I plan to NEVER miss this show.
    Lots of goodies in the swap meet, lots of HAMB friendly cars, Ronnie Roadster even brought his world record flathead powered Bonneville car last year!

    Here’s a few more. It rained heavily last year so the show was cut short unfortunately. So I have limited pictures.
    Most of the cars pictured are located in “FLATHEAD ROW” every year the number of Flathead powered cars grows.
    I’m sure this year will be no exception.
