I'll be at the local Friday car show today. It's every Friday at Historic Main Street in Garden Grove, right at Garden Grove Blvd. I got the Mustang all cleaned up and ready to roll. If you all have nothing to do, come on by and let's get some dinner at a GREAT Mexican restaraunt...the Azteca. If you are an Elvis fan, they have more memorabilia than Graceland!

I'll be with the Poppy Red (orange) 1965 Mustang Coupe with 2" rise cowl induction hood.

Arien...YES, I WILL BE THERE TODAY!

I used to go when I had my 63 comet convertable and my 64 El Camino but since I sold those and my 56 chevy, 63 fairlane and 73 camaro are not complete, I don't go anymore. I miss Main Street. One night I took home 4 raffle prizes and the 50/50. I made no friends that night!

Pics of my 90% completed 56 2 dr wagon.





Every Labor day, I along with 11 others do a car show at the fairgrounds, this is our 26th year. Its called the Great Labor Day Cruise. A 3 day event that has well over 1600 street rods, 200 vendors and non stop cruising. It is open to pre 72 domestic vehicles. We build and raffle off a car every year and donate the proceeds to DARE program and this years project is a 1965 Chevy pick up. To date we have given over $300,000 to the DARE program. We work with the OC Sheriff's department and the kids in the DARE program help with our entry gates. We usually get 40,000+ spectators through the gates that weekend. It's a family themed event. Below is alink to the registration form that is downloadable, if you may be interested in coming. I won't be able to make Main Street, Strep throat has me down for the count, but I would love to see the ride someday!

Here are a few of the event pictures.

I can't wait to see that 56 Chebby in person!! if you're not doing anything, come on down for a little while. The Main Street show has changed a little over the last year and a half. New cars, new people, but a lot of the ol' regulars. the raffle table isn't as good (too much Harbor Freight [email protected]), but the 50/50 is jammin on warm nights!

It's been a project that is going on 4 years. As you know, perfection takes time and money. I'll get it done someday. I way slide down to main street one night, just not tonight. For the time being, feel free to stop buy my house anytime for some shop talk ;D.

I'm soooo sorry Steph!! I'm a flake. What can I say. Well, I went last Friday, and it was a great night. All except these 2 PT Cruisers. They had blue and amber strobes all over them. I felt like I was gonna get one of those Japanese Cartoon seizures! anyways, I'd like to go again this Friday, if the little project is done in time. If not, there is always the next Friday. Now that I have some "wrinkles" in my life ironed out, I'll be less of a flake. I promise. And I'll go wheeling more, too. ;D :D :p

Sure you will. :( You make me sad. Let us know if you go next friday and I'll beg Arien to go. :)

But don't say you're going and then not show up. If you do that, you will owe us both a drink. And I'll hold you to it! haha

Really? PT Cruisers are trying to rice up the hot rod meets? Kick em out! haha.

Yes, if we get done in time. If not, we can at least go for a really good Mexican dinner at Azteca.

Yes....yes we can. Ice cream is good.

And Steph....I'll be with Mr Mud all day Friday, so there's no reason for me not to make it there, even if the Mustang stays at the house due to "technical difficulties." So, get off my back already!! Sheesh....make 14 mistakes (in a row), and no one will let it go....:D :D

Your FJ would fit in a lot better than mine!! Then again, 2 Mustangs parked next to each other is the way the universe planned things....
