Car Show

The largest carshow in the region was held last weekend in neighboring West Point, NE. They stop all entries at 750. The event draws an estimated 10,000 spectators each of the two days of the event. Our son Dan entered his 1968 Camaro Convertible he had restored. It is pictured below. This little gem will pin you in your seat when he releases all of the horses. It's as shiny underneath as it is on top. The mirrors lying on the ground displayed that for the crowd.

 He also entered his 1948 Indian Chief. He also restored this one. The pic below was taken at a rare moment. One when there wasn't a crowd gathered around it.

The picture below is of  Dan and his girls. His wife and 4 daughters. They are pictured in front of his enclosed aluminum trailer.
The tall trophy was a sponsors choice trophy for his Camaro. The other trophy was for 'Outstanding Motorcycle' at the show.

It looks like he is a restoration genius! I can only imagine the hours and hours of work that went into the car and the motorcycle. Bravo and Congratulations!

Boy! Dan certainly has a talent for restoration! Beautiful work!

And you daughter, Juli is equally as talented...that piece is stunning.

You and Margaret must be really proud parents; and rightly so. :)

Lee, I was hoping Marilyn wouldn't find out about Margaret....
Just kidding, you were just a few letters off.

Lee said... bad! :(

I won't tell Margaret about Marilyn! ;)

Some well deserved trophies for Dan.

Well, I don't know about that others, but am really proud to know that your daughter played that Opus so well. That is an awesome recording and, you're right: It is one of the biggest mistakes of your life not to have been there.

Thank you for posting and sharing this, Cliff. It's outta the world great. Gloria heard a bit and then when she comes back we're going to play it again.
