Last Hot Sunday in July!!!
Auto/Truck Show-n-Shine, July 29, 2007

Pictures and video clips by Irina Harrington

Car owners started arriving about 10am to register and setup on the Main Street

Ther call it "Car and Truck Show-n-Shine" on a reason - car owners were shining them up!

Well, this one was a crowd pleaser - not only lots to see and read,
apparently this vehicle was equipped with some gadgets that would spray you with water
if you get too close, honk at the kids that try to get inside,
or a skunk would jump out from underneath
and start circling in the crowd causing some excitement!

It was fun but I personally would not want to be seen riding one of these! ;)

Looky here - this one is for sale! Call the owner and (may be) join the club....

Turn out was great - by 12:30 pm we ran out of space on the Main Street!

Ok, if you had a disfunctional childhood and now you are LONGING FOR ATTENTION
then get one of these - no one can ignore you when this thing rumbles, spits fire
and creates increadible noise! My ears almost exploaded and....

... it has parachuts on the back in case it happens to be too fast for you!! :):)

Everyone had great time!!

This is my personal favorite - classic car is OK for collecting but for driving I'd rather have
something updated, I'd even risk and spell it: NEW-er
