    thanks Bret - great meeting you and Ken and seeing your cool flatbed. Great seeing and reconnecting with everyone else too and meeting some really excellent new friends. The weather actually made that even better. It is always great talking to Dr. Dave too.

    Amazing turnout for such crappy weather!! I mean really, like 400 or so and cold and wet all day. Shows how awesome the show really is with that many people still coming!!

    Thanks Mick, you do a great event!!

    I had another awesome weekend with my Stray Kat Kustoms family. I'm very humbled at how many people introduced themselves and said they follow my work. Thanks to all of you that came out to enjoy the comraderie of the rain! In my view this is no "car show" this is a family getogether.
    Thanks ladies and gents for another great weekend! I'm starting to work on the photos now.

    Wipers? We dont need no stinking wipers!
  8. Home safe and sound from a great weekend! The best times I have had at shows are when the weather was less than you hope for and this weekend was no exception. Hanging with the Kats; Mick, Krobe, Aaron, Myers, Travis (tootallokie), Travis (travisfromkansas) and friends Dan, Bret and his dad, my dad, Jimmy, Mr. C, lil Toot and the rest of the stripers and the piles of other folks I got to chat with. Even won an award...go figure that. I guess giving Krobe a hug and a kiss when I hit town paid off. LOL

    Thanks guys for another fabulous event! Mickey, you and the guys put on the best event of the all go above and beyond to make it a family event where a car show breaks out.

    If you didn't come, you missed out and should be there next year!

  11. What a great, although a little damp, weekend. Finally got to meet Dan and Travis. Talked a lot and meet more people. Thanks to Mick for an other good weekend. The old Chevy ran good on it's maiden voyage for us. The service at the Hampton motel was good and no fire alarms this year.

    Our first StrayKat 500 also, we had a blast!!!! I Enjoyed meeting and talking to everyone and wow, what a cool bunch of rides!

    I guess we got lucky and didn't drive through one drop of rain, coming down or going home.

    I definitely enjoyed the tasty burger and rings at Goldies and the Mac n Cheese (with chicken, bacon and jalapenos) at 2 Sisters in downtown Bartlesville, the Tom Mix museum and Frank Phillips' Woolaroc ranch.

    We bought a couple of items at the antique stores. (I have antiques in almost every room of our house from the stores in Dewey!)

    Thanks Mick for an awesome show!

    The mini posters and the shop rag in the goodie bag was a extra added bonus.

    We would have loved to hang around longer but, we had to rush home to our daughter's concert in the park.

    Thanks again to Mick and the Kats for another great show. The SK500 is always on the top of my got to go list!
  18. I thought we were going to make it this year but once again we had to back out at the last minute. I hate it when that happens! Anyway, we'll make it one of these day's. Look's like everyone was having fun...

    Travis... Thanks for sharing the pictures, help's ease the pain a little.

    Dr. Dave, I think the tag on your Merc was probably worth a few extra points towards an award! I shivvered alot but still had a great time. Didn't miss the Roadster for a second!
  20. LOL. I did ask Mick's approval before I ordered that plate. One of my favorite pictures is the tail of his car and mine wearing the same plates. :)

    Its not a surprise that I like Mercs, so if you drive one to the show you have a good
    chance of winning an award. :) This year Dr. Dave was the only Merc that got an award.


    Sorry I hadn't been on here sooner but I'm kind a lost for words... I guess the weather
    could have been worse but hearing all of the guys that drove through rain, sleet & snow
    just to hang out with us was soo kool. I thought we would have close to 200 but we were
    right at the 400 mark. WOW!

    The Show attracts real Kustoms and Hot Rods and their owners are as real as their rides.
    For the guys that didn't make it I understand, I had a lot of calls through out the day
    apologizing that they were not going to make it. I told them I understand.... I had one call
    me to tell me they just got 6 inches of snow and they would be there they just didn't know
    when. He had a longer drive then normal but he made it....

    I have too many people to thank to name them, but all of the Kat that helped me, and all
    that thought about helping me, thank you for all that you do. the show has grown to a point
    that you got to have help and I have the best crew around.... thank you.

    Like to thank everyone that attended the show and the ones that had tried and had to
    turn around. I know stuff happens, I've been there.... Also we had guys that could not
    make it down in their rides so they drove the late model down. That is kool too, the most
    important thing is I got to visit with ya....

    the Ron Myers tribute went without the "toast" Some kool things were said about one of
    the koolest guys that I know. I think Ron was relived....

    Like to thank Jennifer James for putting on the Pin up contest. Because of the rain we had
    to do it without Sound but they pulled it off just fine. We will be doing this for a while and
    I was thrilled that we didn't have one poodle skirt. Very kool!

    I'm sure I would add more later because of the guys that know me know that I'm more of a
    talker then a writer. (Its the Okie in me)

    thanks again for all of the kind words.

    Happy Trails, Mick

    I forgot to double check with you to see if the Mac n Cheese worked out. I thought ya
    guys would like it. Hhhhhmmm, may have to go there for lunch...
  23. Mac and Cheese. And it was right across the street from the motel. Shoulda gone there instead of the Mexican restaurant that we went to.
    Mick, it was a fantastic weekend. I am so glad that I have a car again.

    Not that it matters but,
    The mac-n-cheese quote was from me, not "wizard23"
    and Road Kill PU, the mac-n-cheese is in downtown Bartlesville, not across the street at Goldies. They have the awesome burgers and pickle bar.
