    SAM_6242.JPG Not quite sure why this is loading doubles of some and none of others.... The carrying case for that Olds engine was my favorite deal of the meet!

    One sort of surrealistic moment or two back at Walden's was when I heard that Conan O'Brian was there at the show. It was shoulder to shoulder and I just heard a couple people say it, then thought nothing of it. 'Bout a half hour later, I broke into the circle with Piero and Hot Rod Ron and a couple others, and Ron smacked me and said "Dude, e SAM_6251.JPG verybody thinks you are Conan O'Brian....".

    I haven't had one ounce of trouble loading pictures until last night. I can't be the only one? Nothing is loading the same way twice...

    Special Ed, I sure as heck wished we had crossed paths the other day! You are another of the many members here that I would love to meet face to face.

    Yup, the saving the parking space thing was real and it sorta felt kinda good on the back laying there on the hard street after that long ride...

    Loved that car! I was in the show for all of 15 minutes, and that was the first shot of the meet.

    Not buying the delusion, just stating the fact! I actually get that a lot even though I don't see any resemblance.

    This thing fit the description "Jewel like"... SAM_6291.JPG

    While seriously less "jewel like", this had cool points beyond belief!!! SAM_6292.JPG

    Wondering if Chip has got the Ivo grin off his face yet.

    Great show. Hooked up with some great HAMB friends, SANY0093.jpg SANY0094.jpg SANY0096.jpg

    This one is for ElPolacko, as for the twenty five years he and I have traveled to this show he has always accused me of taking pictures of the same three cars every year.... Well, this is one of them!!! Brian Bauer's '29 is one of my top 5 favorites EVER!!! Cool guy too that never fails to shout across a street to say "HI" when he sees me! How cool is that to get to know the guys who you looked up to via the pages of magazines as a kid in real life?!!

    Gary, you letting me take your "T" for a put around the grounds was one of the high points of the weekend for me by far! I never in a million years expected you to do that, I just simply wanted to feel how the small amount of padding in your backrest felt... Thank you sir, just wish the grounds weren't so congested so could have really had a putt....

    Chip, you have been clicking "upload a file" twice. I did that a few times until I figured out how it works.

    Say you upload five photos…then after you get all of the progress bars completed, all five are loaded are loaded. Then , when you click the full-size option button to finalize that action, then only the first two photos show in the window at that point. All five are loaded full size, but you only see the top two. That's when I started clicking again and they got loaded twice. Hope this explanation makes sense.

    I LOVE the NHRA museum, but they really HAVE to do something with the lighting in that building. You almost need a bat's sonar to see anything in there these days...

    Cool! Thanks Tom, ya that does make sense.
    I always feel so bad loading my coverage of stuff after you do! Some day I hope to get much better at photography, but you just knock it outta the park every time!

    Did get home well,though had a trailer tire come apart on way. Luckily near a friends shop and no damage to persons or roadster and friend helped with the fix. All's well.

    Had to go back to Walden's and the Kersh family sedan delivery. This thing is as cool as they come. If memory serves correct, it was originally conceived by the father of the current caretaker (Rick, I believe) back in the early fifties as a shop truck for their sign business. I guarantee that you have seen it's stable mate, an equally dropped '29 closed cab pickup whith a flat head for power. Although it looks severely channeled, it in actuality rides on a deeply double stepped frame and the cockpit remains quite roomy in both cars. I almost didn't recognize Rick running around this year, 'cause I had never seen him with a shirt on! This is one of those famliies that really needs much more written about them, as some of the stuff they have built over the years has been completely mind blowing...

    A couple of guilty pleasure pictures for me. The dark colored truck is kinda o/t with it's 17" wheels, but the STANCE!!! The long bed is something that I'll be shooting for myself as soon as I can get a couple of projects done and gone from my yard. Again, ooooooo that stance! SAM_6229.JPG

    Last one for me.... This is wildly off topic, and if I have to delete it I certainly will. But, Saturday allowed me to have a short reunion with what is perhaps the stupidest car I have ever loved, my insanely low mileage '71 V8 Maverick. Judy and I bought this car with a mere 23,000 miles on it in '07, and quite story came with it of a guy that loved it, (bought it new, too) and a wife that hated it. last year we let it go to John over in L.A. for funds to purchase the 'Bucket, but I do miss it very much.... Looks like the salt air isn't playing fair with the original paint, but it gets driven everyday, and even crashed Pebble Beach last year! I don't mind admitting I gave it a quick peck on the white top, and I KNOW it recognized me!!! SAM_6255.JPG SAM_6256.JPG
