My Sweety-Pie walked in the door about 5:45pm from a long hard day of X-mas Shopping and said there was a Classic Car show going on at our subdivision community building parking lot just 3 - 4 blocks away in the middle of our neighborhood.
Earlier in the afternoon I had heard some loud music & an occasional revved up motor and burn out from time to time, but just shrugged it off to weekend warrior neighborhood kids.
I grabbed my day pack with my trusty Canon SX160IS and out the door we went. Sun comes up 6:15 and sun goes down 6:15 here on the Equator, so I knew I would be able to grab a few shots at least.
I was so delighted and surprised to see the over a dozen well preserved & some restored, and some slick custom work on 1) 1950 Ford Pick Up.
Mostly 6) Fords, 2) '69 Mach1's, BOSS 302, '68 Fairlane 4dr.,
2) Chevys, a '72 Camaro, and a '62 Impala,
2) Pontiac 'TA' Firebirds, a '76 Bandit Edition,
2) MOPARs, RoadRunner & a '74 Charger,
1) 80's Porche Carrera,
We walked up to the Show at about 5:55 and the organizers had some orange cones set up with various members backing up at a high rate of speed peeling rubber weaving through the cones backwards & forwards, and there was some 'Pilsner Beer' & 'Jack Daniels' involved to complicate things.
..well about straight up 6pm one of the neighbors must have called the LAW, well you know the 'Fuzz mannn...
The local Police Show up in a little 4 door KIA 4 banger sedan, The Club reserved & rented the community club house, and they were technically on private property, but with beer & whiskey bottles all along the side walks, the Club Members kooled their heels for a moment, and just as soon as the Law pulled out of the subdivision they lit the Muther Up..!!!
