San Antonio Texas AutoRama, Who's Going?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by deuceroger, Jan 2, 2007.

  1. The San Antonio AutoRama will be held on January 19-21, and is hosted by the San Antonio Gear Grinders (EST 1951). Is any one planning on going or taking any cars? www.autorama.com

    We'll be there and sounds like 4 of us will be showing rides. We're thinking Alex, Joe Henry, Johnny and a Baron to be named later. Some how I forgot to snag a registration form on Saturday. Willie kept saying that he had some in the back of the van by the duct tape and rope, but I know better.

    Hey Slo, screw that camping at the beach shit in January. I can tell you that it is cold and wet here that time of year. I've gone to the SA show the last couple years and it keeps getting bigger and better every year. My son and I go and spend the day at the car show then head out for some chow. SA has the chow! Hope to see ya there. The A is way behind schedule now because of family problems. My goal was to make the Round up this year but that's a fat chance now too. Anyway, the SA show is good. Take some good shoes cuz the dome is a hugh place.:)

    I'll be there, But my car is still in pieces from the chop. I just hope I get it back together by the RoundUp. I'm looking forward to seeing some Hamb cars there. I went to Houston's and I didn't see much.

    I'll be there with a booth for my shop. We'll probably have a couple of cars including a chopped Merc we're finishing. I'll post some pics so you'll be able to find us.

    Here's a couple of pics of the Merc from earlier this week. Hope to have the body bolted together in time for the show. Stop by and visit us while you're there.

  23. Hey Dice, I have seen the 32 5-window you have,did you but it from a guy named Al Padella from frost texas?
     
  24. Hey guys this show is looking great it is sold out,no more car spaces left. We have some cool rides that entered. As for me I will be taking 3 rides. Two of my rides will be in the 32 Ford 75th anniversary booth(sport coupe, roadster). My other ride which is a 32 ford pickup will be in another display with a 32 ford jalopy x racer from the 60's. It should be a fun weekend. Anybody who wants to meet up on sat night (maybe down town) let me know something. Hope to see some fello hambers out there.
     
  25. We might stroll down for this one...not sure yet. I've never been to a car show in SA.

    Yep, I bought the body from Al at the Deuce Reunion, sat on it for about 5 years, then finally "un-channeled" it, slapped it on a frame and started driving it---man how did you recognize the body?

  28. Hey dice, I try to keep track of every 32 around. I remember him selling it at Salado's deuce reunion. I was there, I tried to talk him out of selling it because he had it for so long, but money talks. Anyway Im glad to see it on the road.

    Here's a couple of pics from last night while we were setting up. I ended up right beside the world famous "Tow Mater" from the "Cars" movie.
