StrayKat 500 – Dewey, OK

It has been 6 years since I have been to the StrayKat 500 and the return trip did not disappoint!

We headed out on Friday morning for the trip over and arrived in Dewey early afternoon to get registered and checked into our hotel. Once that was done, it was about time to head to downtown Dewey for the Kat Feed!  This is always a good time to just hang out, get some food, and look at some cool cars.  And in my case, get some pinstripes on the car!  More on that later.

On Saturday morning it was an early start for some breakfast and back into Dewey.  By the time Saturday, ended, they had registered just over 600 cars.  Come to find out, this was a record number of cars for the SK500.

Sunday morning, was back into Dewey for the blessing of the cars and then on the road for home.  I am so glad I got to go back to the SK500 this year, and I got to take a good friend with me that had never been before and he really enjoyed it too.  If you’ve never been to the Stray Kat, you need to start making plans to go… I am working on mine!

Mick and his crew do an awesome job putting on this show!  A big thank to them for hosting all of us for the weekend!

Here are a few pictures from the weekend and there are some more here

North Little Rock Car/Air Show – June 27, 2015

I am not playing catch up trying to get this one posted.  Had some issues with getting logged into the website the past couple of days that didn’t help matters much.  Anyways, on June 27, we headed over to the North Little Rock Airport for their Air and Car show hosted by EAA.  This was my first time at an air show, and it was pretty cool to get to see some of the airplanes that these guys build/restore.  You think that our car hobby is expensive, I don’t want to even know what it takes to build/maintain some of these planes.

It was a pretty warm day to be hanging out on the asphalt tarmac of an airport, but there was a pretty good turnout of cars, about 140 if I remember correctly.

Lonoke Lions Club Car Show – June 6, 2015

After a lot of rain and colder weather the past couple of months, we finally got some good car show weather.  So, we headed out to Lonoke to the Lions Club Car Show.  They moved the location of the car show this year to the fairgrounds and the turn out of 50 or so cars was good with the other car shows going on around the area.

The weather was also great today and to hang out with good friends and take a few pictures today.

Here are a few pics from the day and the rest can be seen here.

Mid-America Street Rod Nats – Part 2

Here is part 2 of my trip to the Mid-America Street Rod Nats.  Saturday was a good day at the fairgrounds, which is when most of the cars are there.  As earlier posted, there was just shy of 2000 cars registered this year, which is down just a bit from last year.

On this day, we did decided to un-cork the headers on the Model A and cruise through the fairgrounds.  You may have already seen part 1 of that video and there is more to come.

This was also the day to hit the vendor booths in the building and pick up a few things for the shop and upcoming projects for the hot rod.  Details on that later….

Also some shots of the cruising on Glenstone from Saturday night.

Rev’n and Roar’n Car Show – April 25, 2015

This was the 2nd annual car show that benefits the Arkansas School for the Blind and Visually Impared.  But, this was the first time for me to attend the show.  It was a small show, with somewhere around 30 or so cars registered, and a good assortment of cars/trucks.

It turned out to be a great day for a car show and a chance to get out and drive the hot rod and hang out with some good friends.  That is still the part that I love the most!

Great job to the ASBVI for putting on this show!
