    Anybody up for a Sat. morning get together somewhere in SW PA? I was thinking of somewhere like the Eat'n Park in Mon City for a start. (We can rotate to different places.) We used to hang out there and cruise to South Park, Large, Whitehall,The Dog House, Tall Tom's,The Chuck Wagon, Johnnie's, up on the mountain to The Lone Star, etc. Most of these places are long gone now. The local "cruises" seem to be attracting a lot of newer cars and Harleys. Not that I don't like seeing 2012 Camaros, Mustangs and Corvettes I don't think that they belong at an old car event. I just want to see if there is any interest in an old car get together. Coffee and doughnuts and a group of guys that like old cars.

    I'd be interested. Lone Star is still going. Remember the "Saturday Night Drags" on Rt 40? Where you located? My wife grew up in Woody Brougher's backyard in Lincoln Place. Keep us posted. Thanks.

    The Lone Star drags were legendary. We would leave Mon City Eat'n Park about 10 10:30 pick up some guys from the DogHouse in BelleVernon then drive up 51 to 40 up over the summit, get there after midnight. The Lone Star would still be jumpin , girls walking around cars. There was that guy with the "green monster" 401 Ford that was really fast! I remember a time when someone said something like I'll beat anything you can bring up here. The guy went home hitched his trailer and showed up with a dragster! Hope that we can get something going. I go to CA often they get 25-30 Quality cars at 8-9 AM, serious car guys.

    The Green Monster was owned and driven by Wayne Hager. Later he had a big block wedge MOPAR, ran the same GREEN MONSTER name. Today, Wayne operates an antique store a few miles from the Lone Star. Many Sat nights we went to Keystone Dragway or Eldora-Fairmont Dragway and tried to hit the Lone Star Restaurant before retiring for the night/morning. Great times for sure.
     
  6. I'm In Uniontown and would be in for something some day. The Chuck Wagon is still open as well.

    I'm coming down from Glenshaw, PA. Located near the North Hills area.
    I'm in @ Sat June 30th, 8:30 AM

    Ago...Which Quaker Steak and Lube?
     
  20. This is a 830 AM meet/cruise, right? Someone posted above pm... just clarifying. Also... our better halves invited too or just the guys?
     
  21. Guys... I went ahead and created a social group "Pittsburgh Area Rodders" here on the HAMB. Join up... it will be a good place to keep everyone up to date on what's going on in our neck of the woods.

    Way to go 2loud2old , I started mine about 8 months ago which you know because you came out to sunny San Jose Ca. and stopped in . well next month right after my morning get together Home Depot has asked me to get cars together for a car show. So it looks like it's going to be a good turn out. I started out with about 5 cars and now I get 50 to 60 cars each month.. I wish you well and post the hell out of it so they don't forget. and all you guys out that way I hope you help support the get together because without your help it won't stay alive.......

    I'll bring the doughnuts! I plan to drive to Valdiserri's bakery in North BelleVernon about 7:30 then to the Eat'n Park and get a coffee. Coffee and doughnuts, breakfast of champions! I spoke with lots of guys and many like the idea but for some reason can't make it that Sat. (work, daughter getting married, son getting married,etc.) If you can't make it ,but like the idea post something and let us know that you are out there! Sam
