IMG_3378Sunday the track introduces the host clubs. The Barons Car Club Boise Idaho is one of those clubs. My car was home with a bad tire

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.

Thats real fire flames on that Hot Rod

This little roadster was not on fire , but the flame throwers were wild. I am surprised the car didn’t catch on fire.

Hot Rod Art I bought at the swap meet Sunday

Art is in the eye of the beholder. Many people made comments about this piece sitting in the back of my truck. Most were “WHAT”. One guy tried to buy it from me for the nostalgic FENTON shifter handle. I said no, because the guy that built this has a 57 Chevy wagon, tilt nose etc. that used this shifter before it became art. I have know the car since 1974 and it has always been one of my favorites. He told me that he got the car out of a wrecking yard in Pocatello Idaho, late 60’s. It sat on top of another car and the junk yard dog lived in it, so he first had to evict a mean junk yard dog. How could I give up a treasure from this cool hot rod. He still has the 57 and to me this is art and it’s not for sale.
