    Me and MBL met a few buddies from Venice/Parrish/Bradenton area at my shop and headed out about noon on friday....Some really cool cars...a couple of steel 32's a badass '37 convertible and a sweet taildragging lincoln! All flathead cars except my hemi, and a 351 in the lincoln...with straight pipes, it sounded wicked!

    Aboneboy met up and rode about halfway with us in his roadster, but had something he had to do, and wasn't able to make the whole trip with us...Here he is with MBL on the road.

    At lunch...we had a couple of other hotrods, and a restored model T show up while we were eating.

    At the host hotel, the place was jumping with some really cool cars...Most notably, Ahotrod's bitchin flaked sedan!!! REAL COOL HOTROD!

    It was an awesome show...Rained at the end, but I understand that it's a tradition!

    The internet connection is a little slow here, but when I get home, if nobody posts any pics, I'll try to get some up!

    This was a great show! I do have to say, we had a blast driving up there in our hot rod caravan. Really, even though it was a one-day show, we made it a Fri Sat and Sunday deal. The parking lot get togethers on friday and sat night were great.

    Here we are on the drive home...

    We had a BIG time and made a lot of new friends - I even got to meet Nads.
