The National Street Rod Association is in town this weekend. Mostly the "normal" street rod stuff, but this caught my eye:

My family would recognize the trailer. It's a 1947 Kit Mfg. teardrop, just like the one we used to tow with the Volvo. This one is rebuilt and polished to a fare-thee-well. Really shiny. The car was cool, too.

When was the last time you saw a 1946-47 Hudson Super Six pickup truck?

I LOVE those. Super rare, but I'd rock the heck out of that, just as it stands.

Opel Manta. And agreed on the Hudson. It would almost be a shame to restore it, the exterior anyways. But I'm assuming since it was at a car show, the owner likes it as is.

Yep. The NSRA is in town this weekend. Mostly "normal" street rods, but I noticed the oddballs (duh!):

Do you know Ronnie Savenor from the Boston area? Think he does Porshe club racing.

You come into a thread clearly reserved for us that have a passion for cars and badmouth them? Stick with the bleeding hearts in "living car free." Rudeness isn't tolerated here.

It was a spammer selling vacuum cleaners. He's been banned and posts deleted.

Nice DBS wallpaper. Full size: http://www.luxurywallpapers.net/wp-c...apers.net_.jpg

Oh yea, and I saw an old Jaguar E-type on the road today. Couldn't get a picture though. Was pretty much a match to the one below.

Pope Hartford

My grandfather used to use one like this as an SUV, taxiing hunters throughout the wilds of Wyoming after he graduated from High School. He drove it out from L.A. He reported that once he drove it door deep into the water to cross a river and then winched it the rest of the way across, opened up the distributor and cleaned it out and went on. A stage coach would leave him cans of gasoline out in the middle of the wilderness so he could refuel.

Ok car fans, can anyone name these two cars and say which race they competed in and what, if any, was the importance of the race?

Henry Ford won the race against the more powerful Winton just because his car held together. The upshot of this race was that Henry Ford was able to attract investors in his new company. The impact? How many of us ever owned a Winton?

I've heard that we might be getting these over on this side of the pond next year. Alfa 4C
