    Firstly, I am going to be late for work in just a couple of minutes so I'll just post the first batch of photos and save the prose for later... Click on any of these to go to the full gallery but as of Monday morning when this is posted I'm only done uploading the photos through Thursday evening so the rest will be coming as soon as I can get them done.

    Thursday night on Congress.

    That's it for right now for Thursday night, my connection seems slow but there are 11 or so more images still to upload and about 40 total on the page so far between some Instagram silliness and the real shots that are going up. I hope you enjoy the thread, bear with me as I can only work on this when I'm not doing the day job thang.

    See you at a show,

    Travis

    Thanks Bill! Here's part 2, continuing a few stragglers from Thursday night on Congress and moving on to the Garage Crawl on Friday Morning.

    Due to some traffic issues we showed up late to the Garage Crawl, that was fine because we were in the right neighborhood and it's not hard to spot that long line of fantastic rides, so we followed them to Mercury Charlie's shop.

    Mongo51 wanted to get to the swap meet, and I wanted to get to taking some photos at the show so we skipped the next 2 stops and went to the 4th one, I'll put up a couple of photos from there next post. My lunch break is now over and I need to head back to the office. Stay tuned boys and girls, much much more to come.

    See you at a show,

    Thanx Trav, love the first shot of the C.C. on Congress. That 54 Chevy wagon with the lowered lid is way cool! Thanx again and please post up some more goodness. ~sololobo~

    Thanks everyone!

    Still on the Friday Garage Crawl we stopped by Jeff's Resurrections in Taylor, TX, on the way to his shop we see this sign atop the old Chevrolet dealership.

    I'll come back and edit those power lines out later...

    Looks like Jeff and crew do a ton of very nice work, just not all of it is H.A.M.B. material, click on any of these photos to see more of the cars under construction at Jeff's Resurrections.

    Then it was about a 25 minute drive back towards Austin to the Lonestar Roundup at the Travis County Expo Center.

    Ok, Part 4...

    Still Friday and still in the first area of the show. This was my favorite part of the show, some great cars, and because of the grassy area they were in they were not parked so rigidly along parking lot lines.

    Part 5
    Stopped and talked with the Lonely Knights of Colorado for a bit, they'd just come from Viva the previous weekend and had a special guest rolling with them, more about that in a minute.

    Here's the special guest. A Merc picked up in NJ, shipped to Australia, converted to RH drive and kustomized a bit more, then shipped back to the states to hit Viva and Roundup as part of a good ol' fashioned American Road Trip. Damn cool car, I wish I had the opportunity to meet the owner too.

    The instructions that I got sent us there, and they were expecting people lol I don't know anything more than that!

    I should say I just had my copilot read off the addresses to me and we put them in the GPS to see where to go, we wanted to skip a couple to get to the show early, that was one of the last ones on the page that I was handed outside of Mercury Charlie's.

    Part 9er...
    Still on Saturday, the show got huge both in cars and spectators, finding good shots without random people in the background became harder, but that's the name of the game when trying to cover a show...

    And what a colorful show it is!
