Did anyone attend the swap meet this past weekend? Did you find what you were looking for? Or close to it? Place was packed with sellers and buyers, but I was disappointed that I really didn't see anything worth looking at...........and we covered damn near the whole show....


General Chat / A Christmas Poem......
« on: December 23, 2016, 03:55:07 PM »
Twas the night before Christmas, and thru the garage,
not a trace of a Ford, or even a Dodge.
The presents were wrapped, and the lights were all lit,
so I figured I'd mess with the vette for a bit.

I popped the release and lifted the hood,
when a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good."
Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,
and there by the toolbox, stood good ole Saint Nick!!

We stood there a bit, not sure what to say,
So Santa then asked "wanna trade for my sleigh??"
"No way Santa" I said with a grin,
"But if you got the time, we could go for a spin?"

His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,
turned into a smile as he said "Hell, let's go!!"
So not to disturb the neighbors retreat,
we pushed the corvette out into the street.

Then, taking our places to drift down the hill,
I turned the key on, and let the clutch spill!!
The sound that erupted took Santa by surprise,
but he liked it a lot, from the shock in his eyes.

With goodyears a screamin' and sidepipes a glow,
we headed on out where the hotrodders go.
Santa's grin widened, with every shift of a gear,
then he boasted quite loudly, "Can't believe what I hear".

So I back off the throttle, and asked him to drive,
and he said "Hell yeah, but lets give her the bottle!!"
When he walked past the headlights, he shook at the knees,
So he took a deep breath and said "Lord help us please!!"

The big block exploded with side exhaust sound,
Santa let out the clutch, and the vette shook the ground!!
Shift into second, again into third,
I sat there just watching, at a loss for a word.

Then Santa screamed loudly as we blasted from sight,
Merry Christmas to all, it's a hell of a night!!

General Chat / Old faces and old farts..........
« on: April 26, 2015, 08:09:15 AM »
Had a good time last night seeing some old faces and talking hot rods and racing again. I can't believe that time has passed so quickly and priorities rearranged so much that the "hobby" has almost been shut down or at least, put on hold until when ever. So many questions.  Has "facebook" destroyed these forums?? Will R/T ever put his orange Camaro back together??  Will Ray ever race that Mustang....or Comet?? Now that I am married with two little darlings clinging to my side, will I ever get the chance at another pass down the 1320?? Or maybe even some concrete stretch of flatness and a flagman somewhere? I will turn 50 this year and my body has just as many moans and groans as my car has creaks and squeaks. It doesn't matter. I am still going to have my head buried under the hood of that Camaro or in an old hot rod or car craft mag, or maybe out in the garage tinkering with something automotive related. I just won't do it during the winter months. Anyways, I sure hope someone reads this and comments. Let's not forget who we are, where we came from, and what we love to do.
