Event Coverage ###Pasadena Reliability Run 2010,pic's###

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Bad Bob, May 1, 2010.

  1. The videos are great! Too bad there isn't more coverage like that. I would have loved to park somewhere along the route and just video the cars going by....Maybe coming out of one of the tunnels!!!!

    and the movies! I guess there is something to be said for Socal?

    5/2/10 - snow this morning - I'm not a roadster guy.

    So GREAT to see folks driving these prized pieces, instead of just garage art.

    Great thread, thanks to all!

    What a lineup! Some of my personal favorites, historically important cars and even a few bangers thrown in- thanks for the photos!

    As far as Hot Rods go- when anyone doesn't quite get the H.A.M.B. or what traditional is/means- POINT THEM TO THIS THREAD.
  12. Chris Casny was buying a Shoebox and wanted me to come look at it. I would have gone back but didn't realize the run came back to the starting point. I just wanted to sat hi to you guys.
    That's classic...."What does that mean? The rest of you car's a piece of crap,but I like your engine!" LMAO!!!!!!! Singing the Debbie Gobson song was great too,HAHAHA!!!

    It was! The roads along the whole route was in A+ condition. Our tax dollars hard at work in California. I was surprised by how well the roads were maintained WAAAAAAY back up in those mountains.

    Thanks for the pictures and ride along. It must be an invitation only deal? I didn't see any Easter egg wanna bes. I think my bucket list just got longer. Thanks.
  19. Again, awesome job.

    This thread is going to help make the event even more popular... but your keen eye will help keep it pure, I'm sure.

    Tim showed up with your brother's old Phaeton... I bet it was neat to see it at your event.

    What a truly incredible event. I was in awe when I pulled in and saw the caliber of cars lined up. Truly a humbling and awe experience to be where somany great cars and people are. I was elated to be accepted in the mix, had the best day yet of driving the funnest car I've owned yet, and have huge respect and admiration for the Pasadena Roadster club. Man it was amazing and I'm still on overload this morning.


    I'm no Bob but here's some pic's I took. Run/

    the beginning start was sucky for me my car started running like crap just before the hill we pulled in to the gas station and checked it out. ryan and jay and bobby, lucky checked it out and we figured it to be the points bobby said it mighy clear up so i kept on trucking and made through the tunnels and it finaly gave out. we ended up taking the distrubatior out and rebuilding it out on the hill and got on our way. thanks guys for all the help and the people that stoped to see if i was ok. billy

    Thanks for posting the photos and videos guys! What a great event! I too would love to ride along sometime. I overslept so I didn't bring the sedan out, and made it there just before the drivers meeting. What a amazing collection of traditional roadsters!

    I sat on the curb and videoed every car leaving the start. Once I get it put together I'll post it here.

    I was lucky enough to be asked along as a navigator and have to say that was one of the coolest deals I have been on in years. The selection of cars,the weather,the route and the people were beyond comparison. The PRC is a class act !!! People came out from Northern Cal, Arizona, Nevada, even Texas for the run.

    bob, great seeing you again, "did i imiss any one?"i guess don and i don't count. ha ha even though i was only co pilot, i want to thank the PRC for putting on one of the best run and fun events i have ever been to.met too many people to list. ryan , saw you but you were working on the texas car, what a sad story, bring a car from texas, then have problems keeping you from starting the run.great photos as usual. bob you should have stood near the starting line and just asked for a ride in every empty seat, someone would have given you a ride, it would have been worth it. ron

    That was our president Chris Wickersham that made that comment. He singled out the engine because his next project roadster is going to be powered by en early 331 Caddy too, just like Jay's car is.

    There are some awesome pictures and videos in here, thanks to all who took them and posted them for us to see. A lot of us are so busy working we never got a chance to walk the cars.

    Thanks to all of our participants for comming out with they're increadible selection of open cars and making this the best Reliability Run since the PRC brought it back in '04. Our silent goal has always been to get 100 cars together on the "day of". This year we had 104 registered and as near as I can tell 98 there. That's come along way since the 67 cars that ran on the first one. You guys are one hell of a great group and the endless positive comments and hand shakes we recieved from you put us on top of the world!

    Thanks to Chris "Gators" Eichert for volunteering to come out and be our official photographer. Everywhere I looked you were taking a picture, we can't wait to get that disc in the mail!

    And an extra special thanks to PRC members and volunteers. Everyone one helps out in some way to put this thing together. Some big, some small but there's no un-important job as they're all the means to a successful event and I can't imagine how it could have went smoother. So for any of you that see this, thank you so much!

    Chairman - PRC Reliability Run #11
  27. HAHA! Sorry Ron. I went back and edited the list. Maybe I should have made a sign "Ride-less HAMB Member"....
  28. It was my first time,Dennis,and I will come back and take pic's again for sure! I was so busy,I forgot to buy me a shirt! You put together one great event. Thanks so much.....
