  5. I was reading about the festival last year. Sounds like it would be a hoot to go see. I'll have to put it on my calendar and see what works out.
     
  6. Don't forget to stop at Burt's Pumpkin Farm & take home one of their 200lb pumpkins for Halloween!

    Be sure to go to the hall of fame museum .. Also the Ga auto racing hall of fame club has a booth down town during the festival. Drop by and say Hi.. A few years ago Miss Linda Vaughn set up with us and sold her posters. This picked up a lot of traffic at our booth..Just to add.. She is a member of the Ga HOF... not just 39/40 ford's but a lot of trip cars and old race cars on display.... Bobby...

    Now that I have my 39 deluxe coupe finished I'm considering traveling to the event. I hear it is a killer show with all 39 40 fords line up on main street.

    I used to leave money in a Kerr Mason Jar on a stump west of Asheville, NC and come back the next day and the jar was full of a very clear liquid. I used it to start old tractor motors I was rebuilding. The Minneaplois Molines and Massey Ferguson's would fire right up with an explosion like noise. Good 140 Proof "Go juice."

    Norm, We found other uses for it...
    HRP, there's one in Gatlinburg too. They use cornmeal ground at the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge as part of the mash. The only reason Grandad's shine wasn't legal is becuz it was tax free likker! Ever heard of Cherry Flip? John

    There is no such thing as "Legal Moonshine". Moonshine is a name for illegal alcohol. It got it's name because it was made at night by moonlight. It might be labeled Moonshine, but if it is being sold in a store, it is being taxed, there for NOT Moonshine. It can be made the same way, and taste the same, but not true Moonshine.

    Dawson ville is in the process of renaming the streets in town.. Bernard Long the first person from Dawsonville to win a race at Daytona, Lyod Seay. the hall of fame is now on Elliott street and the building is number 9 , One street is named after Mr. Parks and I don't recall the rest. My source is from the pool hall regular........................................................ I was at the alabama state owned whiskey store and saw Jr. Johnson brew it was tempered way down to 100 prof. The Dawsonville white whiskey is 86 proof. I bet the trip boys in the church grave yard are rolling over at this time.To much water to me.

    Look up the definition of Moonshine,

    Moonshine, white lightning, mountain dew, hooch, and Tennessee white whiskey are terms used to describe high-proof distilled spirits,produced illicitly. The word "moonshine" is believed to derive from the term "moonrakers" used for early English smugglers and the clandestine (i.e., by the light of the moon) nature of the operations of illegal Appalachian distillers who produced and distributed whiskey.<SUP id=cite_ref-1 class=reference>[1]</SUP><SUP id=cite_ref-2 class=reference>[</SUP>

    I drink Junior's Midnight Moon when I can't get the real stuff. Not bad, but 80 proof sucks!

    Last bottle I bought the ABC clerk says "Junior can use all the help he can get" and bagged it up.

    I assumed he was making money off of it but if the last post is true and he sold his recipe I guess not.
     
  26. The Palmetto Moonshine is 105 Proof,,

    The Moonshine Run is a premier event here in the South. HRP
