    As always, great writing and photos. I’m so glad to see that you got to get out and see these hooligans. Great bunch of people and rides.

    I’m much more famous on the internet than in real life

    Bunch of Holligans note the amount of cars with exhaust dumps for making Hot Rod NOISE. :rolleyes:

    @Ryan , I don't even know what to say, except Thank You!
    Our crew up here is quite special to me, something I need to always remember to not take for granted.
    You going out of your way to visit us means a lot.

    This just made my week, seriously.
    (and I happen to have a birthday ending in zero coming up this Saturday)

    I'm familiar with Nebraska weather. Glad you didn't end up in OZ! I'm thinking... perfect lighting!

    Awesome you got to head up and hang out with those NBs. Always a hoot to rub elbows with them at KKOA and HAMB-drags.

    Great read and shots Ryan. Question, did you pull your trailer with the Ford? Didn't realize you owned that.

    No sir... That's owned by Mike Lewis... and it's a fantastic car. We just pulled it there to stage that pic. I pulled the trailer with a late model GMC pickup.

    great article, Nebr weather can turn quickly...driving from Lincoln to Omaha after Good-Guys Day at the Hay in 2017, I got caught on the edge of a tornado in my 40 Ford. it turned as dark as midnight at 7:00pm & raining so hard I couldnt see the end of my hood.. I pulled over & could feel the wind moving my car. soon I was crossways on the highway with my foot on the brake so hard my leg was cramping, made it home ok with no damage after it passed...scary time 2017-06-15 06.47.23.jpg

    What a cool shoot, we are certainly blessed with a fabulous group of hot rods here in Omaha. Proud to see one of my Hot Rod Gang, Rob Lee and his Model A Coupe of "The South Omaha Turds" included in the event. Love that bad ass trailer Ryan, tough weather for you, thanx for braving the storm and honoring our bunch.

    @Ryan At times, I’m certain the gusts hit over 30 mph...
    Have you been gone that long? That's amateur hour in the Boomer state...that's daily.

    In Iowa we don't even feel the breeze unless it's over 40 MPH. Just used to it. Something to do with how Nebraska blows, but Missouri sucks.

    I kid.

  21. Very cool group!

    Happy Birthday a few days early Nick! case I forget before then...

    I'm glad you made it seem like I actually ate food instead of my hydraulic dinner! It was awesome having you in town!

    god damn good to visit with you Ryan with nothing more going on than just hanging out. Thanks for coming up to hang with us hoodlums. I truly wish I was able to just lean against your badass vintage camper and enjoy a beer with you and shoot the shit but even in great times like this sometimes life gets in the way. I may have to search you out at the drags and make up for the abbreviated time hanging out. Sometimes when life gives you lemons you hang around badass hotrods....
