John's Picnic......pics

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Binga, Nov 4, 2007.

  1. My good mate Bryan and I headed down to John's Rod and Custom pinic on Sunday at 8:00am.

    With the weather forecast of rain easing to showers I decided that my car was going to stay at home, didn't like the prospect of driving a brand new car in the rain and having it break on me..:eek:

    The rain started 20 mins into the 2 1/2 hr drive and it was still raining when we got home at 4:00 pm, needless to say that there was only a very small turnout of cars.

  2. A couple of Aussie made cars with laced roofs, the rain made it almost impossible to take pics.

  8. Flatozmade the 1hr plus trek in the rain with no top, no wipers and conventional tyres only to have to wait at the gate for 20 mins to get in, lucky he had an umberella to sit under while waiting.

    Whoa. I love rain, but dayum! My hair would of fuzzed up, my eyebrows would have slid off my face and I'd of been generally pissy all day.

    What a ruler!:D
     
  25. hehhehe. occassionly.
     
  26. Hey flatoz, how was the trip home?

    Jahoota
    Staying home was a good decision, would have been lucky to have been 150 cars there.
    Would have been disapointing for chopper as he was expecting 2000 + this year I think.

    hey thanks for the pics but you missed one.. my gold val. :D

    we would have liked a bit more sun to, make the lace and pearl really shine.
    turn out was obviously down but we still had fun, think the booze helped!

    it was wet, windows leaked, some of us had no wipers and we all got soaked to the bone but who cares, its the picnic you have to go!

    cant be too much into cool cars if a bit of rain scares you off..
    congrats to those in their roadsters..
