Just got home from the local cruise-in. Wagon was a big hit! I was asked to start it more than once.

My 8-year-old kiddo took most of the pics. He's REALLY getting good with the camera.

Got there at dusk, so sorry the pics are a little dark. Enjoy!

-Mike

Got some really good comments on the Roadmaster!


Gorgeous 427 Ford Galaxie





Sharp Ranchero



Very cool!



1967 Mustang GTA ragtop


This Marauder was MEAN

My wagon looks at home with other toys!

Was a real fun evening!

Oh dear Jesus! So many I want.

That blue 'Vette with the stripes isn't a pace car, though. It's an '03 50th Anniversary edition. One of my favorite schemes too. And I would give half of my liver for that '83 Hurst/Olds. WANT WANT WANT WANT!

My fault on the Vette. Whoops. I knew that, I swear I did.

And this will kill you. The guy bought that Hurst Olds for only $2K. A Mexican guy had it on CraigsList as a "custom" 83 Cutlass. Seller had no idea what he had. When the guy called on it all the seller said was it had a "glass roof" (aka T-tops) and a "shelf" (spolier) on the trunk.

It needs to be totally restored but it's all there and totally rust free. Guy that owns it was really nice and we talked for almost 45 mins. He's a member of a local Olds club and gave me the link. Will have to bring my 88 Cutlass next time.

Good times!

Love the pics!! Some really sweet rides, my favorite (after your wagon) was the Marauder.

What Camera do you use? If you can manually adjust things...you can get some nice dusk shots if you set the ISO to 400 or 800 (depending on how dark) and turn the flash off. You have to hold perfectly still though. The darker it is, the longer the shutter stays open after you press the button. Exhale...click..hold 1thousand 2thousand...release. lol Or bring a cheap little tripod.

Can't wait for the next show!

Ha, it's just a cheap and old digital camera....and my 8-year-old took almost all those pics.

Sorry they're blurry!

And yes that Maurader is a Beast!

...actually, the Vette is an '04 Commemorative Edition (Z16) "celebrating Corvette Racing's historic Le Mans victories and...consecutive GTS class championships in 2001 and 2002 at the famed Le Mans 24 Hours."

Awesome pics , Mike! Lovin the wagon as always, and I dig that Ranchero too, even though its a F***, lol.

Yep I'm not a Ford guy at all but that Ranchero and that Galaxie convertible were both sharp, as were the Marauder and the Thunderbolt.

You don't have to like something to respect it. ; )

We've got a pretty solid group of Saturday night regulars, but new stuff shows up all the time. Will keep posting after the shows, but this coming weekend I'll be out of town.

I'm going to Dallas this coming weekend and sadly missed Cars and Coffee...it was this past weekend. Will try to redeem myself by hitting some yards and will post those pics Sunday.
