Summer Header Graphics and Calendar Updates

We are fast approaching the opening of cruise season on June 9 and the  outdoor show season has officially begun as of this last weekend. At least here in Metro Detroit.

There are some updates to the cruise calendar and some adds to the other events calendars so take a look and see what may be coming up. It gets busy so once again I am taking the summer off from working in order to enjoy myself and get out and about. I like being retired!

While there have been some small page tweaks along the way this is basically a seasonal update. The Main headers on all the sections are now the summer versions. The winter versions have been retired until in October / November.

So, with that all said, I am going to get back to work on the cars and get ready for the granddaddy of all cruises, the Woodward Dream Cruise on August 18! Stay tuned!

 

It does pay to be creative and different!

I am part of a Detroit News article!

While “cruising the web” I stumbled across a Woodward Dream Cruise article in the Detroit News

Coolest Dream Cruise grilles and details

As I scrolled through the article, low and behold, there was the grille of MY Mustang! I was kind of taken aback that it was there and then I was pleased that it caught the eye of the photographer. All I can say is that I built it as a diversion from the normal Mustang grille but it gets some other attention because of that fact.

I am pleased with the outcome! Nice!

 

A weekend of cars, cars, cars!

Drag cars on Saturday – Show cars on Sunday

The weekend was very busy!

Saturday

Saturday was a guy day out at Billetproof / Detroit Dragway Reunion. Steve, Liam and I loaded up the HHR and headed down to Milan Dragway. The spectator side was the Billetproof rat-rod show and then the pit side got you into the nostalgia dragsters of the Detroit Dragway Reunion.

Lots of drag racing was on hand and the pits seemed to go on forever. But wandering the pits got you up close and personal with all sorts of nostalgia race cars. And there were tons of the regular drag cars too. Between sitting in the stands and watching the drag racing action and strolling through the pits it was a full day.

And I want to acknowledge the guys with Great Lakes Gassers! The whole bunch of them were awesome. They were very cordial and were willing to show off their rides. They made sure Liam got an up close and personal look at the cars and let him try them on for size. They showed him the inner workings of the cockpits and what does what. Great job guys!

Sunday

Sunday was a great day for a car show! A clear sunny day and a temp around 90. This one was the SAAC – MCR All Ford Show. This annual show had an added attraction this year with the addition of the 50th Anniversity Celebration of the Cougar. Take a big Ford show and throw in about 300 Cougars from across the country and you have a winner. I made sure to stock up on water for the grueling sunny day ahead. I got there early to get situated before the placed packed up so I setup and started my stay by heading for the swap meet area. The rest of the day was spent browsing up and down the rows looking for cars and features. I found plenty of both.

So today is a day of recovery. Unfortunately it’s 90 out today. kind of a duplicate of yesterday. So I will hide in the AC till it cools down this afternoon. Gonna do some steaks once it cools down. Gotta eat, right!? See ya!
