    Yesterday was my birthday. Nothing so special about that but I had the opportunity to go to a car show/swap meet about 4 hours away from me in a beautiful setting in Double Springs, AL. My wife has recently acquired a new dog so she couldn't come with me. Sunshine, lots of trees, grass, a nice breeze and a couple hundred well done cars, most HAMB friendly. I was also able to put faces with names of some other HAMBer's that I'd never met face to face. It was a real pleasure to meet @56don and @B.A.KING. There weren't a lot of vendors but I managed to downsize my hoard of "valuable parts", to quote Don. Being the only one there to mind the stand, I couldn't get a lot of pics but a very nice Chevy parked directly across from where I'd set up shop. I'm not much on Chevrolet but this one could change my mind. Also saw a '48 Ford with a unique approach to changing the trunk. I've never seen one with a hatchback. I ran two lane road all the way back home with very little traffic and time to look at things. All in all, it was a very good day. 20210904_093013.jpg 20210904_090515.jpg

    That black 57 "150" is my dream car just like that one but with Halibrands. I have a 57 BA but the 150's "oh boy". By the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    I've often thought a hatchback conversion would be handy. Cool to se one.

    Happy Birthday, Alan!
  10. It's nice to have a great day, on your birthday. Doesn't happen as often, as one gets older, but sure feels nice.

  11. Happy Birthday, Sir. A little "alone " time is good.

  12. Happy Birthday. Sounds like you made good choices on how to spend it. Laid back is good.

  14. It was great to get to chat with you Alan. It was a nice day and fun to do a little socializing once again. I meant to wish you Happy Birthday, but forgot (oldtimer's disease) so Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday a few hours belated. Sounds like a great day. It's always a good day when you can disperse of a few parts that don't have a purpose in your plans and put a bit of cash in the kitty too. My problem is that I usually go home with more than I took but all different.

    Wish I could have made it, maybe next year. Just too much going on this year. Looks like a good turnout.

    And now, Happy Un-Birthday. Like you i'm not a 57 Chev fan, but, I like that one too. If I could have my pic of 57 GM, it would be A Super 88 with the J-2 Rocket. Ah the dog days of summer ......
