Seems like when you have a sedan for sale everyone is looking for a coupe.
From the old photo album - coupes -
28 model a sedan - for sale
Mario's 32 5 window -
Dick's coupe in a parade - Bob and Roy's sedans also
Last month we saw my 37 Chev coupe - here are pictures of inspiration.
We had a great response to our Gasser Madness November so here are some pictures of previously owned potential gassers that have passed through our yard.
1937 Chevrolet Coupe - inspired by the "SILVER BULLET" magazine car 1982 or so.
This project took 3 trucks and a trailer to get home.
Last I heard it was in one of the Carolinas.
1947 Pontiac Sedan Delivery.
I learned how to weld on this unfinished project as well as completing my first subframe swap. Never did finish it but I hear it is still around Mc Gregor or Wheatley.
It would have been cool with the nose up in Gasser style.
1955 Chevrolet -no front bumper - flat black primer - wonder where it is now.
Note my 1974 El Camino SS - big block car - great winter beater back in the day.
Mid 50's Thames panel truck - would have been a great gasser.
Tom an Mike helped load it and the Ranchero pulled it home.
Sticking with the Gasser Madness Theme here is a picture of my Henry J when I first got it .
Nice Henry J at one of the big shows in the States.
Nice Willys owned by Kim and Diane Brush.
If you hang around Kim too much you get Gasser Madness -- be warned.
I was at the Ruthven Apple Festival Sunday and ran into a bunch of the guys we used to run to car shows with.
We all wished we would have taken more pictures and I added that we should have written dates on the ones we did take.
Pumpkin Run, Owensville Ohio 1990 I think
The Z wheels on our '56 we bought from Roy, parked behind us in his Model A.
A couple of other cars from the Windsor Area Street Rods Club
here is a cool chopped 4 door street rod that caught my eye at the Pumkin Run
It used to be a 4 hour drive to a weekend car show was no big deal and we travelled all over Ontario, Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
Lets load up and do it again?
Into the old photo Album again.
Some of these were labelled and dated.
I believe these pictures are from "LAST CHANCE CAMPOUT" in September 1988.
The notes say 8 couples from the Classic Cruisers attended.
Back in the day the club attended Last Chance Campout a couple years in a row.
The host club put on a good [but small back then] show and we used it as an end of season run.
Michelle and I had the chance to attend the new version of this show a couple of years ago.
I don't think you can camp out there any more and it certainly is not small.
I was impressed that it had the feeling of a nationals event with hundreds of cars, vendors,and a great swap meet.
I am not sure if we will be able to attend this year but it is recommended.
Anyway here is some nostalgia.
Here are Paul, Ron, Kathy, Lisa, Jim, Stass and Maryann and Linda .
the picture is labelled "beer break"
Remember when car shows had games for the participants to play?
Here I am tossing valves into an oil pan while Ron waits his turn and roots me on.
Here Stass tosses fanbelts while Ron and Jim look on and a volunteer from the host club records his success on a clip board.
I think we were going for the club participation award and every event contributed.
Here Mario lines up his 32 Ford for the "blind driver" competition.
Mario's 32 , our 56 Sedan Delivery and Stass' 67 GTO lined up .
Here we are lined up with our banner behind us.
Not sure exactly where this was.
Our 56, Paul's 55, Mario's 32, Stass' GTO and Jim's 41 Plymouth coupe.
Hope these pictures make you want to go out to a show and make new memories and remember to label your picture. Dave
Back about 20 years ago or so the "THUNDER ROAD RUNNERS" CAR CLUB hosted a little car show at beautiful Seacliff Park in Leamington to supplement the Beach Boys Concert being held on the beach.
As I recall it was a great day and the old cars added to the atmosphere.
We held registration at the old Leamington High School to make things less congested at the park.
Here are some pictures. I believe they were taken by "the Old Car Detective " Bill Sherk.
The first picture is a salute to those volunteers who make everything happen.
Local artist Jody Raffoul got to open for the Beach Boys
Back into the old photos. We have a date on one but not all. note to self put dates on stuff.
Kent County Street Rods
