Saturday morning we loaded up and headed out for a car show about 180 miles away.
It was kinda foggy, it had rained the day before....
We had to go over the mountain and through the woods, so to speak.....
Stopped at the summit for a break.....5200 feet. It was almost cold up there....almost.
Saw one of the Glacier Park tour buses, 1937 White.......the top opens up for open air viewing. There are a whole fleet of these things.....they were updated a few years ago with modern drivetrains.
OK, on to the car show pics....
A really sweet '57 shortbox.....302 power, really well done. I want one!
Very cool shoebox...
Super clean original bumpside...
Really nice early Bronco.....
I think we killed every bug in the state! The whole front of the truck was plastered with 'em.
A lot more muscle car stuff, but you get the picture.....about 50 vehicles total. Small show, but fun anyway!
The return trip was HOT!! About 90 degrees.....otherwise pretty boring. The old flathead ran fairly well, the generator bearing started squealing on the way home.....nothing I could do but press on. It held together. Also had some tuning issues.....I can tell you the flathead does NOT like high elevation or 30 mph headwinds.
The good news is, it did not get hot or use any oil....so I am happy!
All in all we had a good time! End of story!
I love going to car shows, but I always wondered if I would enjoy taking my truck to one. Seeing these pictures got me thinking how nice a trip like that would be, just being out cruising in your truck. I'm a long way off from being able to drive it anywhere, but this sure gives me incentive.
Great pics, I dream about driving mine up the highway to the sun when i get it to that stage. BTW, I'm only about 130 miles north as the crow flies from Kalispell.
my truck is a 1949 Ford F47,
It's called an F1 south of the 49th
2003 f 150 Heritage Edition
