    Samantha and I might fly down for next years event.We'll have to see how finances go.Still have Christmas to get over and the wifes daily driver just went into the shop for $1500 in repairs..Always something..lol
     
  2. Glad to see so many making plans for the run to Vegas.......always great fun.

    The Lonely Knights will be helping to operate the car show, just like last year. And, The LK's will be driving out in force from Colorado too.

    My personal goal is to have the '36 Roadster at Viva.....

    Thanks Dave but it really couldn't be possible without the vision and organizational skills of Tom Ingram. I simply assist in a small portion of the event - the car show. Glad you're returning and we look forward to seeing you. Axle

    p.s. Thanks to the Lonely Knights for helping me once again

    Just got back from the Starliner show in Wichita. What a great time we had. The Lonely Knights were treated like Kings by Mickey and the good ol Oklahoma boys. I told them they had to come to Viva cause everything at that show is awesome! Looking so forward to that!

    Say Axle~
    I would go just to gaze at
    The Dick Fowler '38 Ford Coupe.
    That's glowing custom history
    Like a white shade
    Out of the past...
    The Larry Watson '50 Chevy "Grapevine"
    &
    the Larry Watson '58 Bird "Vino Paisano"
    embellish the House with style.
    Is it the actual Jack Stewart/Gene Blackford
    '50 Olds "Polynesian" Holiday 88
    Or Bob Stamper&'s accurate rendition?

    Looks like the day job is putting the brakes on our plan to do the massive roadtrip from KS to Viva to Roundup and back... working on alternate plans now, hoping to still be able to fly to Viva at least... damn day job!

    UPDATE:

    "Viva Las Vegas Bowling"

    Calling all car clubs.



    We’re taking over the whole house!
    Come join the fun and excitement
    at the second annual
    Viva Las Bowling!
    This year, Viva Las Bowling is proud to announce that the dynamic duo Dave Wolfe and Eva Strangelove will be MC’ing the event as we take over the entire Bowling Center on Friday, March 29th from 11am to 6pm!
    Full 4-day Viva Las Vegas and 4-day car show wristband holders are invited to come up and get 2 games of bowling, shoe rental and a hot dog for an easy 5 bucks!
    Prizes will be awarded for everything from a simple strike to the high-score for the day – so hang out and claim the big prizes at the end of the event!
    The Sailor Jerry Crew will be hanging out as well and remember if one of those ladies throw a gutter ball, you get a Sailor Jerry Gutter Shot!
    In-case you’re wondering – anyone who is in town is welcome to come up and check out the unique vendors and sponsor booths that will be on hand – so bring a friend even if they do not have a wristband!
    Folks without wristbands can bowl as well, but will pay the regular house rates. If there is a waitlist, wristband holders will have priority. But that will give you a chance to grab a drink, a bite to eat and some time to go shopping!!
    Shine up your ball – it’s gonna be a blast from the past!
    BREAKING

    We're excited to be attending the full 4 days and the music is going to be AWSUME!! I'm especially a Dick Dale fan and will be looking forward seeing him play again. Does anyone know if he will have any back up members playing with him? The last time I saw him he was doing a solo gig.
     
  22. Dick Dale is touring with his son. I expect that to be the case for Viva.

    Thanks Chili Phil, appreciate the reply. I did see Dick and his son a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed the gig, his son is incredibly talented and can play at the same level as his father, but to be honest, I was hoping to see him play with something along the lines of the Deltones.
