PostSubject: FUN STUFF! Cruising in Downtown Austin Tonight! 4/2   Sun Apr 03, 2011 2:02 am

Hey Gang! Had a little adventure tonight.

My oldest kiddo went to Dallas for the weekend last night, and Misty wanted to go get some Italian food tonight. I'm not big on Italian, had more than my share when I lived in New Jersey, and besides, Italian food in Texas is about like Mexican food in New Jersey. It's just not quite "right". Suspect

That being said, I kinda pulled a fast one. Rather than do Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill, there is an old italian place in downtown Austin called Romeo's. It's good stuff, if a tad pricey. I loaded Misty and Tucker in the Roady and headed downtown. Misty was excited, this would be a treat...

I neglected to mention the big cruise-night is Saturday night on South Congress downtown. Hehe...

SO we had a good dinner, and I offered to buy her and Tuck a cupcake from Hey Cupcake!, which..ahem...is on South Congress.. Twisted Evil

All I can say is that was a GREAT night! Misty kinda caught on once we got down there, but she was full of expensive Italian food, and actually pulled out her phone to take pics for me!! Very Cool!

We cruised up and down South Congress for over two hours, really had a good time, great cars down there and I WILL be doing that again. There were FIVE OTHER LONGROOFS that showed up! Two were Impala clones, one was a Caprice with hubcaps, and the last one was a total twin of my car, white woody over red guts, but it had hubcaps. Was driven by a blond girl and we passed each other and both about jumped out our windows waving at each other! Was SO cool! Ha! Sadly she was going north and I was going south, and I never saw her a again, so no pic of that car. Booo!

We never did make it to Hey Cupcake, but stopped at Amy's Ice Cream on the way home....so all ended well too! And seeing all the other wagons cruising and people waving and giving us thumbs-up may have given Misty a new appreciation for my wagon. Ha! She also said she felt like a teenager again, cruising the main drag in her hometown in highschool....with the exception that she was in a wood-covered station wagon with a baby in the seat behind her....I married a funny woman. Laughing

Also, withever a car would rev it's engine, my 2-year-old Tuck in the back seat would go RRRRRR!-RRRRR! Fun stuff, training him right!

Here's the pics! Keep in mind these were taken with her cell phone camera, while we were in the Roady cruising, so they are not the greatest, but you'll get the idea. Sorry for the blurry ones but some NEAT cars and cool people! Fun times!

There was a huge b-body meet there today called INC-fest. INC = Impalas n Caprices.

Looks like you stumbled on to them without realizing it. One of my SS buddies rolls a wagon and posted some of those SAME cars on his FB album earlier today.
