 +++Grandpa's last hunt:

Johnny's last hunt, he's getting too tired for this; Johnny's been part of the family for 13+ years, I remember to this day when he came to the shop out of nowhere, with a chewed up rope around his neck, looking real tough. Whoever had him used to keep him tied up, seemed he didn't like that, loved to run around and terrorize the cats and the other dogs. I kinda felt bad for him and fed him once, he took off, the next day when I came back, he was under one of the cars. I guess he figured out he found a friend, no more rope around the neck, and not too many rules to follow. Pretty soon, he decided to stay, many times though he would still wander, and when he wouldn't come back, I knew he was locked up. I had to bail him out many, many times. He loved his freedom so much, he would even climb fences to do his thing. A couple of years ago, he survived a severe wound to his neck, inflicted by a wild pig, I thought I was gonna loose him, but he is a tough boy, he made it... now retired from action, his pleasures are eating and sleeping, and an occasional Frankenstein walk... still my good pal.

 

+++past Fall Foliage festival & Classic car show, October, Robbers'cave, OK: this was our 4 th time at this awesome car show, as usual we had a blast, there were well over 400 Classic rides. There was live Country music, iron workers, ropers, crafts, rides for the kids, campers, fishing, lots of bikers, pedal boaters, plenty of food like Indian tacos, funnel cakes, BBQ, fresh pizza cooked in a mobile brick oven, turkey legs (sucked this year, weren't cooked all the way)... and for the FIRST TIME, 2 Corvairs, one wanna-be Batmobile, and Rafman & Frenchy's 64. far out! Hope to see you VAIR next year! Enjoy the pix.

Pontoon-mobile, another crazy custom ride...If can't sail, drive it!

Saint George Utah: show and swap meet, got to meet a lot of cool people & enjoyed the rides!

+++New update: our friend Michel from The Chevrolet Corvair Club de Paris (Paris France, not Texas) imitating Rafman while restoring some Panhards, french Classics from the 60's, his second favorite cars after the Corvairs. You be the judge! Michel imitant Rafee, Rafee ne peut pas faire mieux.....et les Panhards sont super.
