    The Toad was thrilled to see an older brother on the road. Good looking olds.
     
  3. Danny was like a kid, to have his Olds on the road to Salina.
    Next year we will have a flight of three Taildraggers.
    This show really gets you motivated and I need it. ;)

  8. Man, we were planning to go this year, but things didn't work out.

    Those pictures are great--I only wish I could take them like that. Good stuff.

    Thank you everyone for checking out the photos and for taking the time to say something about them. The show was big and had a great turn out, thanks to everyone who came and made Salina the kool place to be for a few days despite the thermometer. I am working on drag videos now and will start posting them ASAP, & I'll put another photo post up later tonight!

    Great shots Travis, the quality of rides this year were off the hook!! The high temps did not keep the folks away, I sure missed seeing some folks that usually come but met a lot of new friends and had a ball! See ya at Greaserama! ~sololobo~
     
  11. WOW what a show !
    Man it doesnt get much better than that.
    And thats some awesome coverage too Travis.
    Pics and colorful commentary are top notch.
    Thanks for postin man.

    Don't forget the springs! haahaha Thanks for the cold towel, I'll never do full weekend shows without a couple in a cooler from now on. Had a great time sitting on the tailgate talking!

    I've been going through 111 video files tonight from the drags, only a handful were good enough to put up on the site, next year I'll have a new tripod and I'll get much better footage for everyone.

    Awesome, awesome pics as always, Travis! I'm always amazed at the results not to mention blown away by the amount of time and effort you put into taking all the photos! Thanks for sharing all the great shots and for including a couple with me and the booth! I had a fantastic time at the show and appreciate you letting me crash at Casa de Scanlan!

    Thank you everyone, I'm taking a break from posting more until I get my coverage turned into the magazine. I was not aware that I couldn't turn in images to them that I'd posted here so since that's a paying gig I have to get those sorted first. I burned a few photos here that I wanted to send there. I'll be back soon though so no worries!

    Send 'em anyway, Travis...they're so good you need to let them decide if those pix are something they want to toss out...I'd doubt it tho.
