The one that got away

Ok , it’s not the only one that got away. Like many of you I have had lots of cool cars, hot rods , muscle cars , sports cars etc.Some made it to the road and others were sold off as project cars. I loved and need every one of them when they followed me home. The 1949 Merc was really special and I should have finished it. When I was in junior high back in the 60’s a couple of just older guys had a primer 49 and was that ever cool, they even had a car girl named Molly that was always riding with them.I always wanted to be a J.D. with a chopped Merc, finally got one and let it go. I hope it wasn’t that dreaded M word that made it happen. I would rather be a bad boy than a MATURE adult.

Baron Steve Neff making his first pass in his 1931 Chevy Sedan Delivery

During Saturdays swap meet at Firebird Raceway, there was also a test and tune. This was the first time Steve had run this car down the strip. He is building a full on Fiat Topolino now that will be fun to watch. I will bring out the big camera and lens for that one. The wild mouse ride

Firebird Raceway spring swap meet was the biggest yet

I told you if you need to get rid of it this was the place and if you just had have it this was the place. Even with just a little sprinkle in the morning , the crowds turned out. I bought lots of cool stuff and sold some as well. Thanks to the New Crew for another great event

Looks like a happy buyer
