Well, the show is tomorrow. I'm excited; can't wait. I'm still gettin' my truck ready for the show. I saw a restored car and a couple of nice hot rods roll through town this morning, probably getting ready for the show also. I hope to see some of ya'll out there. It sounds like a fun family event and the weather looks to be sunny and in the 80's. I'll be wearing my FTE shirt. C'mon out, ya'll, and show your FTE support, or at least come by and say hi.
Well, I finished detailing the truck with 30 minutes to spare before the show. My father-in-law came up to visit for the show. We had a good time. There was at least 80 vehicles entered in the show. There were a large number of 30's and 40's Ford cars that took most of the trophies. I believe that I had the only Ford Truck in the event. Unfortunately I got beat out by two Chevy's and a GMC in my class.('65-'79 Stock) I would have had a better chance with the modified class. Oh well. There were some late model Ford trucks in attendance also, including a nice white four door with custom silver paint graphics and toneau, and an air slammed black F150. There was a new silver PT Cruiser with dancing air bags installed. The owner was giving demonstrations. It was almost fast enough to bounce the front wheels off the ground! They provided classic rock music and entertainment, including a local Elvis impersonator. The 'Walking Poker Run' is where you took a sheet of paper to different merchants in the city and you pick a card out of a deck from each merchant and get your sheet stamped with the card info. And the person with the best poker hand after visiting the six merchants wins $50 cash. My lowely two pair got beat out by a numerical straight. But there was a fun and games event that included removing and installing 8 sparkplugs against a timer, dropping pushrods into two liter bottles, and identifying three car parts just by feel to win $50 cash. I did ok with the spark plugs and pushrods and nailed all three parts.(oxygen sensor, hood hinge, retractable top air piston.) I won the $50 cash prize! I didn't get a trophy, but we had fun and the $50 more than made up for the $12 entry fee. My father-in-law and I were sportin' our FTE shirts, but didn't see or meet any other FTE members. If you want to see some of the pics, check out my galleries. I have them split into two albums.
I want to give a special thanks to MJDillon76(Mike) and to Ken!
