    I thought I saw most of them this year but no way. Friday temps were perfect, nobody passing out in the swap meet. Thanks for the pictures!

  13. always amazed at the amount of ability and talent folks in motorcar possess........ how does an old busted up guy (like me) ever hope to get in and attempt to drive a sedan chopped like the one early in the post, the vehicle is wonderful to look at, I can't wrap my head around how to get in( or worse...get out) with out needing an ambulance. extraordinary vehicle though. Thanx for the photos, I gotta see if I can stand up outta my chair..........oh wait ,I guess I just answered my question about the sedan. lol

    I've seen a lot of those guys and wondered the same thing. They're in their mid 50s they look 182 months pregnant and yet somehow manage to shimmy behind the steering wheel of a model t let alone get under to work on it.

  15. That’s because it is that car. Mr. Roussel rebodied it using the back half of a ‘62 Falcon , he then added an old bubbletop he had sitting in his shop. The current paint job comes courtesy of Ed Roth metal flake.

    Whether it’s drivable or not, I will never get my head around the rear tire higher than the belt line look.:confused:

  19. yeah,the one I was referencing was the electric blue one posted just ahead of Roussels......I guess my same observation applies though, when they're that low no amount of dedication on my part gets me in it. Hats off to folks who can ,I guess.......the view must be crazy driving down the street or highway, lookin' over and seeing the curb at eye level and all.

    That's the attitude a lot of people take...total disregard for others safety...that's why I chose to stay away..

  25. Thanks for posting the photos, very much appreciated. Kudos to Sonny Jones for that awesome '55 4-dr Chevy convertible, and the entertaining "backstory"!

    Like so many others, I was dismayed when NSRA caved and followed Goodguys down the "late model" path. Wish there was a national group who could organize a '65-and-earlier get-together...wow, seems like I ought to know of a bunch of people who do that, but where would that be???

  27. I rarely go to a nsra show. I'm more into racing. I did have a good time. The people were cool. The crazy burnouts at night were fun to watch. I would have liked to join in if it wasn't for the threat of a 500 dollar fine if I removed the car from the building. Yes I did see some without masks i just avoided them the same way i avoided cars i didnt care for. To the debby downers there was no muddy mess; the front gate was fine and there were no protesters any where near the area. The horror stories I heard about terrible heat didnt happen. All in all I had a good time. One night after the show we went to one of the top 100 rated beer bars in the world. The assortment of beers from around the world is incredible. The guy that runs the place is a beer savant. On another night went at a cool restaurant on the Indiana side of the river. With so much to see and do I might even go again some day.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures, probably should have gone but am in the age group that is most susceptible. Glad that all that went had a good time and it looked like the weather was perfect.
