    Can't believe the number of cars already here, lot of kool already running around town.
    Don't forget the HAMB MEET GREET at 12:00 on Saturday. We will be meeting in the Merc Gathering area. Look for the shade.

    Happy trails, Mick

    Had a fun time at the KKOA show yesterday. Hung out with Gasser Louie, GrouchySS and his lovely wife Cindy, Poverty Flats, Tsquared, and a few others. I saw an almost endless amount of cool, old-time looking cars. Went to the Friday night drags, made one pass with my '31 Ford, and headed for home. All in all, a great day.

    Thanks! It's a ton of work but it's worth it when people dig the shots and when others decide that they HAVE to make the show the next year :)

    How often can you say that you seen a gennie 32 ford coupe, with a 427 holman moody side oiler power plant? Not too often you find a deuce with the powerplant valued more than the car itself.F--kin awsome! Hands down my favorite car of the show.

    The show was great! thanks for the pix. Best part of the drags was the "moon shot",you know who you are.
    Need to move the date to spring or fall, too damn HOT.

    I've uploaded the Saturday pics now too, they start with this one of GasserLouie's ride. Click it to go to the gallery and see them all.

    I'm heading to the park to shoot some more now. Sunday is always a small day at the show but there are usually some choice rides around. I'm really wishing I would have fixed the A/C though....

    I was headed back to the show sunday and the fuel pressure reg stuck, the front carb caught fire and burnt my air filter out.
    At that point I was thinking the magnesium valve covers on the cammer motor might be a bad idea !!
    I got the fire put out backed the regulator off a couple turns , changed the plugs and drove it home 150 plus miles
    the 427 runs great but the holley blue pump/regular has to go,this is the second time its let me down
    hated to miss the sunday show but it sure nice to be home!
