My Trip to Deuce Day

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by kan't spell, Jul 22, 2013.

  1. I managed to get my car together just in time for my planed trip to Deuce Days in Victoria this past weekend. This was the maiden trip for the car only have driven it a few Kms. I was only up till about 2am on Thursday night finishing up the interior. I still needs a little work but for the most part it looks Ok. I gave it a quick cleaning, packed My wife and kids in the car and left to meet a friend of mine, his wife and kid and his Mom and Dad Friday morning and headed for the ferry.

    Went to the Poker Run Saturday morning.

    I could have crashed into a Deer but I saw it coming. That was fun. We had a good time till we came to the final meeting place and my car left a GIANT puddle of oil under it. It looks like the rear main seal gave up. I would have taken more pics but I was too busy finding some oil and stressing about my car.

    Made it to the show Sunday at about 6am. Took a few pics before it got really busy. Lots of cool cars, about 150 from California, a hand full from Texas a couple from North Carolina and a few other states too.

    Great pics. I visited there, when I was in the Navy back in '92. One of the most beautiful cities I had the chance to see.

    Made it home Sunday night after stopping a few times to add some more oil and once cause my Wife was afraid the car was on Fire. Oil was getting on to the exhaust pipe. But we made, had great time and can't wait to do it again!!:D

    Your car looked pretty darn nice to me (other than it looks like your parking spot may have been under a nest of birds!) ;)

  24. I hope I didn't spray too much oil on his car. :)
     
  25. Your Dad has a nice car!!

    I got to the show at 7:30 when there was only about 1000 people there. Perfect for taking pictures but I was so interested in looking that I didn't take many. The ones posted are as good as mine or better. It is always a great show.
