Sunday Notes.

We started off with another gorgeous and sunny day, were getting spoiled by the great weather we’ve been having , no rain and not real hot temps. It might just touch 90 again today. Donna got called in to the restaurant, since thy were having another Car Show on the lot. Did I say Car Show, yep, so at 11:00AM I headed the truck over to JJ’s with my camera. good thing I did as the owner Jerry’s wife asked I would take pictures for them as they are a sponsor. I said sure.
T-Rod at JJ's08-25-13a
Ford T-Rod,notice it has a small block blown Chevy engine.
              55 Chev Bel-Air 4door Sedan.
                    56 Chev 1/2 ton pickup.
                    68 Chev Chevelle Malibu.
                             67 olds 442 Coupe
Red CorvetteatJJ's08-25-13a
Corvettes were there in Red, Blue & Yellow.
                A 43 Chev Deluxe 4 door Sedan.
                      70 Dodge Charger 440.
        My favorite was this 64 Buick Rat Rod.
            Mustangs in white, blue and silver.
These are just a sample I took 63 shots, the owners were all great and opened hoods trunks and doors , whatever was needed. I just wish I could see that Rat with the big block Buick engine and those long straight pipes fired up after dark. It must look like a P-51 or Messerschmidt at full bore. I can tell you one thing that Buick was no slouch on loud when he drove it in to the lot. It was loud. Even for this guy with half his hearing gone.
That was the excitement for my day. My Mom always used to say boys love things that are loud ,big, smelly and greasy, I still like things like that. and appreciate a fine tuned engine.
I hope all of our friends are having a great weekend, please be safe out there, Sam & Donna..


  1. You and Jim. I'm about car showed out but he can always find ones he likes. Amazes me how many of them are Chevy powered even when they're not Chevys.

  2. If you are in the market - my brother has his 69 GTO convertible on the market. Beautiful - black with white leather interior. Come on, you know you want it. It was listed on Craigslist last I knew.

  3. Love those car shows. I always think I need one, until I think about all the work:)
