I have been going to this show since it started almost thirty years ago, never missed one! I've been a swap meet vendor there for many years as well. We always take one of our old cars up to cruise in the evenings, but another friend wanted to go, and since his car was not ready, he drove our '59 Dodge Custom Royal.

Here's a few photos-
Thursday night, we met up at the A&W for a cruise night, But right after arriving, the sky turned black, and torrential rain followed. I have never seen rain that hard, the airport measured over ten inches of rain in an hour's time!! It did wash all the Chevies from the parking lot, though. The other photos were of some interesting Mopars, and the last photo was where we stopped on the way home. We got to meet Kellii there, he had a good time as well.

Thanks, Ralf!

Jim, the yellow convertible is owned by a fellow from Oregon, but he used to live twenty miles from me when he bought it several years ago.

Your Fury looks like a million bucks John She's a stunner its pretty cool how you manage to keep her so clean and still drive her plenty. Do you park far away in the parking lot at stores ect?

To Be honest, Carlos, the ten years of daily driving her has taken its toll, there are numerous paint chips that I have touched up, a few dings in the trim from careless people in parking lots, and areas where the paint is fading. I have under $9,000 total in the car, so I guess I got my money's worth out of it.

It still looks good cleaned up, though. I would rather enjoy my cars by driving them, I built it once, and can redo anything I care to at any given time. Too many other irons in the fire to really worry about at this stage in the game.

I hope you can make the trip out west once your car is completed.

---John

Thanks!!

I had an accident with the Fury lately, so it will not be drivable again for a bit, though.

Nobody was hurt, and I really appreciate your concern, Joe. The car can be fixed, as it was hit in the left front at a low speed. We have a four way stop in town, and after waiting for an SUV to leave the stop sign, I began to cross and was hit by a car I never saw. The other driver is fine too.

Man, That really sucks! but at least everyone is ok. You've got such a nice fury it's a shame it took a hit. Did the other driver blow the stop sign?

Nobody was cited, but I believe the other car followed the SUV into the intersection, and I did not see the car. Pulling a fender today too get the repairs started.

I have full comprehensive coverage, Joe, so the worst I would have to pay is a $250 deductible. I'm going to start stripping the trim this weekend in preparations for repairs.
