  3. It's been a while since I've been there. I still remember it though, it was so flipping bright I wouldn't open my eyes for the pic. Up until then I had no idea that sort of thing (Speedweek) existed. Later on my mom let me choose on postcard at the store. I chose one with Craig Breedlove and the Spirit of America on it. I'm pretty sure I've still got it around somewhere.

    That picture reminds me of family first of all, but also of how simple life used to be- two kids could occupy themselves without hand held "devices" and being constantly deluged with outside stimulation. My grandson (13) came to spend a couple of days, was here 10 minutes, and announced he was "bored". I live on the edge of conservation land ( hundreds of acres), on a dead end street, and my cellar is FULL of my kids old toys, bikes, fishing rods, scooters- it looks like "Toys R US"!
    BORED??
    They want to be entertained constantly, and it's a shame- no imagination.

    P1010078.JPG Here's a funny pic of my two boys having a blast in a 40 Tudor a few years back. The one in the back seat has been bitten hard by the greasy motor bug. The other is just ok with it but probably won't be turning a lot of wrenches later in life.
     
  13. I knew that pic looked familiar ...

    This pic is fantastic! Reminds me of my best friend from childhood, and the daily hijinks we would get into.

    We're all about old cars and bikes. From our wedding to picking kids up from school.

    I'm a lifelong gear head, and both sides of the family are car and motorcycle people.It was genetics, I guess ;)
     
  22. I use to invite my kid out to the garage to watch/help me with my hotrods. When he was 15 he went with me to inquire about a 50 ford coupe I was interested in.....I couldn't come up with the $300 but he begged me to let him buy that car...I did and at 42 he still has the car. He's too busy to build it at home but has a local shop building it as a pro-mod style road racer....[to actually race!] with twin turbo 427 cu in LS and a richmond 6 speed.
    Keep 'em interested. Jeremysbox12_15.jpg

    That little guy on the salt looks like a very young Mickey Thompson. Obviously not him, though, as Mickey was much older in the mid-1950's. Anyway, with his appearance and his early indoctrination to racing, this kid has to be enjoying cars today.
     
  24. Normally I don't put photo's of my girls online, but will in this case, as I share the perspective entirely, starting young.

    Breedlove, Doc Ostich, Mickey Thompson, and people talked about the indy 500 and Le mans months in advance, what a time it was to grow up, eh?
    I havent pushed it on her at ALL, but I think my daughter is going to be a car person, but I dont think she is going to be "hamb friendly", shes more solid cams 4.56s and 3" magnaflows than she is 3.08s flatheads and smittys. She was bored at Deuce Days.

    I have a 2 and a 4 year old. Both love going to car shows with me, my 2 year old son says our 50 4 door chevy is his car and gets mad when I don't take him to daycare in it or if he cant bring it in the house with us at night lol. They both go along to all the trade shows and love to hang around with Dad and I. Ask either of my kids what sound grandpa and daddys cars make they will both go vroom vroom in a deep tone. As for the whole laptop over a car thing, I mean I want both so I can use the Laptop on the car lol.
