I spent the weekend at 2 different car shows! Had a fantastic time. My Dad came too with his 1940 Nash hotrod! Weather was perfect, and lots of cars. At todays show in comes this young guy driving a 69 Coronet 500 exactly the same color etc.... as my Dad had when I was small. Got talking to him turned out to be a great guy ( his Dad came also with a 72? dark green Cuda) great people! My Dad tried to buy it or trade his car for it but the Coronet owner hadf a sentimental attchment to it as it was his late Uncles car. Sure was a beauty though. A survivor car , low miles has some rust but nothing serious. I've been looking for years for one for my Dad with no luck. At first we thought this one was my dads old car but it wasen't meant to be , but met some great people just the same! :2thumbs: I told them about this site and gave them some CC.com business cards, so hopefully they will check up out! They are from Parry Sound , Ontario ( I think that's what they said?)

Here are a few. Fun old fat fendered ride! My poor old Dad almost launched it in the ditch when he tried to keep up with me on an on ramp. Gotta love the Hotchkis parts... :roflsmiley:  I tell him" ya it's Ok to park with the prefered Mopars as it's pretty much a Mopar anyhow!  :poopoke:
( Nash was bought my AMC, then AMC was bought by Chrysler)

some cool old pics there Brad. Only Nash I can ever recognize is the rambler. And who can forget...."hey buddy...how do I get my car out of second gear!"

I had a very busy weekend myself. Took some early morning pictures for the calendar submission for 2013! Already submitted for 2012.
Then went autocrossing for the rest of the day on the Homestead Speedway kart track, though I did that in the Stealth. Not bold enough to have taken the Cuda for that, though I consider the Stealth a Mopar. Most purists dont though. Oh well.
Heres a couple from my weekend.

Took the Challenger to the exhaust shop today.  Had it brought there on a flat bed and then DROVE IT HOME to the shop!!!!!!  First time this car has been on the road in probably 25 years!

Then, gave her a bath - again probably the first one in 25 years
