We arrived at Pima County Fairground at noon time on Friday after having a tire issue with our toad. We arrived with a group of about 15 ‘Boomers’ so we could park together in the “Boondocking Area’. Boondocking = No power or water, a minor inconvenience to us.
By 4:00pm we were ready for our Altitude Adjustment. We had about 25 people including old friends and new friends.
On Saturday I declared a holiday. Anne-Marie went grocery shopping while I enjoyed a day at the drag strip next to the fairground. It was a very low profile race with mostly ‘hobby class’ cars. I’ve posted a link to a slide show below if your interested. The ‘57 Chevy D/Gas car shown was built by the 70 year old owner/driver who told me it was an original model 210, all steel no rust an no cut. He had all the parts to return it to original. Yes, he put mufflers on it and drove about 3,000 miles per year going to Cruise Nights.
The other car I liked was a 1958 Chebbie 4 Door Delray Station Wagon. It had a Blown Big block and was fun to watch, being very quick.
Today we have opening ceremonies and than on to the festivities.
