    I was there on Saturday and agree. There was about 2% late models but for the most part it was York as usual. Some of the later stuff was actually pretty cool including one very wicked yellow early fifties fastback custom that had me drooling.

    Anybody know anything about the wierd motored cab over bomb carrier?

    Yeah I was there friday and saturday, had a great time, got way too sunburnt. It wasnt anywhere nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be, the cars were right on, and a muscle car here and there didn't bother me. I was looking at that cab over when the owner was talking to a few people about and I listened in. He found the motor in a junk year and picked it up-its a V12 out of a (I think) a dump truck or something similar. I forget half of what he said now that I'm trying to remember, but I think he used a gear vendors overdrive and modified the transmission to work with what he wanted. Seemed like a very knowledgable guy. I really liked it, very different, and had people staring at it all weekend. That yellow chevy I think was a 49, cant remember perfectly, but that car was amazing. The paint was so bright it got your attention from ohio! There was also a 49 Olds fastback there that was a greenish-silverish-maaco sharkish color that was very cool. What did you guys think about those "IDA AUTOMOTIVE" builds, like the willys and the tucker inside the vendor building and the twin turbo 37 chevy? Very O/T for this site but I really admired the fabrication and engineering/design of all those vehicles. Overall I thought it was a really good show. Today I'm nursing the result of my "young and dumb" mentalities-resulting in massive sunburn haha

    Thanx for the pix... This car looks so nice, but for the life of me I have NO idea what it is or what it is base upon. Any clues? Gary

    mid 50w Mark I, I think 52 but I forget the year exactly. Very cool other than the air bags part-although he did a cool thing with the switches

    That's a '56 Lincoln Continental. Very limited production, high dollar model only sold for two years when Ford started assigning the marque to cheaper cars. Basically a body style that is difficult to improve upon.

    It sounds as though the late model interest in this type of show will be so minimal that the muscle car guys that do go wouldn't return to another one because of the lack "their kind".

    The boycotters may have also been few, consisting mostly of people who were contemptuous of NSRA already.

    Still a dumb move by NSRA.

    Just got home a bit ago, had a great weekend... the rain threatened off and on both days, but really never downpoured at all until i was 5 minutes from home. Forgot my camera, so thanks for the pics... hoping some more people took some too, as I love looking at all the stuff i missed! Met a few HAMB'ers, and talked to a bunch of nice folks. Didn't mind the 30 year rule at all, as it was still primarily hot rods, and the newer stuff that showed up was mostly all cool stuff, and seemed to fit in just fine. In fact, my dad took his butternut yellow '65 Impala and had a blast too.

    There is a full feature on this car in Rod & Custom Magazine May 2010.
    Built by father and son in a small garage in New Jersey.
    My friend here in Brisbane has a similiar one done as a mild custom but not chopped.Less than 3000 of these made over 2 years.

     

  21. You mean the Morris Minor?

  22. Actually, it's just a Continental, they created a separate division for it when it was introduced in '56. Came back under Lincoln umbrella a few years later. These early Marks were the classics.

    Look up the thread, there is one dedicated to them, beautiful cars.
