|As you might have noticed, I've
split the 2007 season into two sections because it was getting pretty large
(and it makes my life a little easier).
On June 2nd, the second annual Cherry Fest Custom
Car and Bike show was held at Stewart Park in Beaumont. This show is by
far the closest one to my house as it's only five miles away. All the proceeds
went to the Beaumont Kiwanis Club. Everyone that entered a car or bike received
a goodie-bag, which included a T-shirt (any size you wanted), a meal
ticket (cheeseburger, chips and cold drink) and a bunch of other small stuff.
Setup time for this show was from 8 to 10am and we
arrived around 7:45 to get a good parking spot. The show hours ran from
10 to 2pm and the weather was very nice this year. Last year was unseasonably
cold but that couldn't be said this time.
This show brought in a few cars that I've never
seen before (which is always a welcome site) and a bunch of local cars
as well. This show also had a nice big raffle, a live band (that was
pretty good) and a few vendors selling stuff.
The local newspaper, "The
Record Gazette" wrote an article about the show and took a few
of pictures too. Our car ended up on the front page and once I found
that out, I had to run down and buy a few more copies.
To start things off with is this 1929 Ford that
was looking very good.
