    Here's a video of Billetproof 2013 held at Don Garlits Museum grounds in Ocala, FL. Good turnout and the weather was good after rains in the early morning. A lot of cars arrived late do to the early rain and I imagine some stayed home, there was still a good turnout.

    Great video, sorry we bailed this year, but the weather north and west was really bad.
    Rooster....I wanted to win your "Best Mill" trophy again this year. I still think the one you built last year was the bomb, don't see how you could have topped it this year. I WILL see you next year. Looks like the weather was OK at Ocala but the weather enroute was just terrible. Sorry we missed it.

    I use a "Flip" Ultra HD camera. I broke one of the two I have, at this show. When I got home I pulled it out from between the seats in my truck, and it had a broken LCD screen. I'm trying to find a replacement screen online.

    I know, sorry for putting a T in the middle of Garlits, I'm French you know, I don't speeky the English to well.

    Thanks for all the kind words, I enjoy doing it. I can relate to being up North, did it for years, I'm from Maine. 4 years ago I semi-retired and I started coming to Florida for 4 months. I've been told by my kids it's been the worst winter in their memory.

    Thanks!!! I wished I had more time to spend with the cars and all the owners, but this helped update me on what I missed. Great job!

  22. Spiker are you planning on attending the Perry, GA Autofest & Swapmeet? It's just right up the road from Ocala and it begins Friday.

  23. Thanks for the great video - sorry I missed it this year and that the weather held up the attendance as much as it did. I know how hoard folks work on getting a show together.

    But, what was there was pretty nice - I especially liked that black "A" tudor. It looked super straight and at a great price of $25K .... and the nice little Ford towards the end for $12K.

    No, I'm afraid I can't make it to Ga. My daughter and her family are coming to Florida for a vacation, and I'm repainting the hood on the truck this week. I want to get it done before I head back to Maine.
    It's funny you mentioned the Model A tudor. Someone from Germany commented on my YouTube account that his friend bought the Tudor in the video that day. I thought it was a real decent price.
    Also thank you for the nice comment on my truck. I've got over 37,000 miles on it since I built it 4 years ago. I love driving it.

    That was my model A tudor. It did in fact get sold to a guy from Germany Sat night at Belair Plaza. Don't know his plan's but it was in the car corral Sunday at the Turkey Run.
