Hi Dan Jr.,
Next year we will be able to schedule these shows on alternate weekends. There were only 2 weekends in August open for our event at our new venue. There is a large Vintage Race weekend the following weekend that would have conflicted with more of the local guys, so there wasn’t much of a choice. Next year will be different. We’ll take in each other’s events like your dad and I have done for many years.
I have photos of your dad’s cars at the Museum of Flight and Transport back in 1991 up here in White Rock - that’s how far back this event goes. I too took in Blue Lake in 1991 – in a slammed dually 620 scalloped long box. Our events have lots of history. 1993 was my first year to Shasta, an event I’m told got over 70 roadsters again this year, among other Datsun’s. These events are not going away any time soon.
For this year however I just got a glimpse of the awards – you guys who are coming are going to like ‘em. I’ll miss Richards’s awesome trophies he has come up with for the past many years, but I think you’ll like what I put together this year.

Byron

The NX Drag car will be making an appearance after being absent for a few years. The NX street car was at the show for the last few years.
Sorry to hear about the auto-x.

Just home from the show & a stop in Bby at the train park with the family, great day out and a fair turnout at the show. Pics later when I download/upload my camera, thanks to Byron (& others?) for making this happen!

I have been successfully resuscitated!

So, after a GREAT car show, I tuck in between Robbyn and Mandy on the drive home. Go figure, we get EVERY red light on Night Street, one end to the other. My water temp slowly ticks upwards, even with fans on, seems to hold at 185, so that is good. At EVERY light, Robbyn lays down a cloaking smoke screen, trying to hide us from the police. I'm wishing I had my emergency oxygen bottle. Behind me, I see Mandy waving away, at first I thought she was just being friendly at every light, then I realize, due to my fading vision, that she too is suffering from oxygen deprivation. At one point I actually thought, after our discussion on the Walking Dead series, that were about to become one of the undead, sort of patient ONE and TWO, in the start of the Apocalypse. Weird thought eh, zombies driving 510's. Oh, well, that's what happens when the burning Lubie lube goes to ones brain. To top it all off for Mandy, my 100LL is pumping out my 3" exhaust, oh well, they say a little lead is not bad for you....... :|

As I will update in another post, I did get my new waste gate installed yesterday, and after a few test burns, the ole' ballistic missile is back.... :twisted:


Chad got the well deserved best 510 award....We need to drag him out more, so his nice shiny new car suffers more of our battle scars and patina...going to take awhile, as his car really is very clean and pictures actually do not do it justice.

Carlos had his drag car there, and while I'm not a drag guy, I can appreciate the workmanship, very cool!

This years selection of 510's were just great, a really good selection of our wonderful collection here, lovingly kept alive by a very dedicated group of people.

Some really nice Z's also, and a couple of roadsters.

I wandered over in the late morning to the other park here, where the VEGA club was gathered...4 cars and a V-8 Nova or Acadian. I thought my sponsors old Buick/Rover 215 CuIn v-8 Vega might still be alive.

All and all, a wonderful hot day on the Coast, with the harbour in all it's glory.
