|My wife and I went for a little cruise this weekend over to
a neighboring town. There's a Bobs Big Boy a few miles from my house and
they were having a car show that day so we decided to go and check
it out. Gary and Debbie were going to be there too so this would be a
day that I was dreaming about for a long time. What I mean is, I've been
to a bunch of car shows in my life, but not with my own car. What I've
been wanting is for the four of us to be at the same car show with our
cars parked next to each other. Well it finally happened and we had a great
It sure felt good to pull up into the area
that all the other show cars were so I could be one of those guys. There were about 75 to 90 cars there so it was a good turn
You can see Gary and Debbie's 1937 Ford Fastback
in front of me and my old 1971 Camaro to my right. Gary and I had to
park in the middle because there wasn't any more parking spaces left
once we arrived.
|The guy to my right, Larry, is the owner of my
old Camaro. He's a good guy and he doesn't miss to
many car shows. He's won just about every award there is to win with his
car and if you ever want to know were the next car show is at, see Larry
because he'll know.
|Here's a better look at Larry's car.
He sure does keep it nice. Now this was my first car that I ever had. I
bought it in 1976 and there wasn't a straight panel on it when I drove
it home. Gary showed
me how to do body work back then and we painted it in my garage. I
sold it to Gary in 1999 and then he sold it to Larry a couple of years
later. Larry has since repainted it and had some pinstripe flames put on
it which looks fantastic. The color that you see is very close to what I
had back then.
|That's me signing up for the car show
for the first time in my life. It was a nice day and there were some
really nice cars there.
