chalk up another one for the manitoba guys. heading out tomorrow 6pm 3 buddies in a 56 pontiac.
I'm so jealous! I gotta get up there to see this show some time. Sigh, maybe next year.
I'll be there, have only missed twice in the past fifteen years, if ya see me wandering around ( I'll be wearing my HAMB shirt) give me a shout and say Hi.....I'd like to meet ya........Scott
See you guys tomorrow!!! I can't freakin wait....
We are coming up for Friday. One day trip this year. Better than not makin it.
Ran into a little rain on the way to registration today but ended up sunny. Looks like tomorrow will be iffy to start with but should be good weekend overall. I hope I can sleep tonight, I look forward to this all year! Look for the Caddy and flag me down if you see me, talk to you tomorrow.
Look for me at Welle Autos both next to the John Deere Building
Just got into Fargo...construction and rain all the way!
Hope the weather gets better the further south I go...at least all cars look shiny in the rain, painted or not! (got to think of the good side of bad weather)
ok where are the pictures!! won't be from me, my 60 belair door completely smashed my digital some how when i got there, dont make cameras like they used to
dont live round there but sounds like fun
Neighbor was there all day today. According to him there's more cars this year then he's ever seen at this show before. I'm only going to go Sunday morning to the swap meet then home and rest until Fathers Day Dinner with the kids.
Spent the whole day there it was perfect! 12000 cars equals 12000 pics right? Didn't take a one. Wore my feet right off to stumps walking and lookin!
My pics from Thursday registration:
I took a plie of pics today, but the camers is in the car in the hotel parking lot but I'm sitting with my feet up and a cool one in hand and its very comfy.
12 hours on the Fairgrounds today and it was awesome, as usual. The grounds really filled up after noon.
The Canadians have forgiven me after I kidnapped their beer and extorted ransom from them - Ralph even let me cruise with him in his Plymouth.
Tomorrow will be killer..........
Today was pehenominal. I got there at 6:30AM and it was already hoping. Beautiful day. A little rain at the end. Supposed to be perfect tomorrow and Sunday. As good a show as I've ever been to. Huge variety of cars. I'll be posting some pics.
just a few pictures from today
A few more below
here they are
One last post
Did you see the the 38 buick roadster with the 12 cylinder seagrave fire engine motor?
I'm currently uploading my pictures to my myspace, I'll add a link when it's done. I was told Friday was the day to go cause it was less crowded. For this being my first time going on a Friday, if that was less crowded what is tomorrow going to be like?! Decided to do tomorrow afternoon and evening, enough time to give my feet some rest.
SICK! And it wasn't the only one with a Seagrave 12 cylinder!
I just want to vent a little bit here. You all are having all this fun, and I'm at home, and not that far away, sweating my ass off while tearing down my trailer house. Not fair, I tell ya!
But if anyone wants to trade places, I'm all for it.
That Seagrave is sweet!
Havi, two words: gas,match!!!LOL
Here's a link to the 225 pictures I took today.
