3 Rivers Festival Show

July 22, 2007

It was a nice day for a show, not too hot for the middle of July and a nice breeze all day. Although my day didn’t start off all that well having pushed my luck with the gas gauge a little too far. I ran dry before leaving the driveway to head for the gas station around the corner, then after pouring a couple of gallons in the tank the new battery I bought back in March died. I hooked up the battery tester and it indicated the battery was bad, so I spent an hour trading the battery in for a new one. The only good thing to come from that was the new battery was free.

Considering the entrance to Lawton Park is located on a somewhat blind curve it was nice of the Allen County Sheriff Department to have a deputy parked at the entrance flagging traffic over to the opposite lanes. I left a few minutes ahead to the crowd, I can imagine what it would have been like trying to get 200+ cars out of there without their help. I doubt it would have been pretty, and possibly would have been expensive.

Here are a few of them, click on them to enlarge.






Update: By the way if you’re interested in the cream colored ’32 roadster with the for sale sign in the windshield, click on comments at the bottom of the post and say so. I wiped out the phone number but have my copy of the picture which I can read the number, I’ll check with the owner to see if it’s still available and let you know how to get in touch with his or her permission.

This is kind of unique

July 1, 2007

I went to Warren today, sounds like there were about 95 registered, looked like it too. Every now and then when you go to these out of the way small town shows you see something unique, today I saw one. Forget the model A, I want one of these.







What you’re looking at is a 1938 MG. It was originally purchased back in its day by an individual in Chicago and shipped over here. It’s always been here in the mid west where we like a lot of salt with our snow. This car still has its original wood sub structure and sheet metal, thick sheet metal, no bondo, no ‘glass, no s**t.

There will be more from Warren, but this one deserves a spot of its own.
