Some car news

It is now official, the bill has been passed, and
July 10, 2015 has been declared National Collector
Car Appreciation Day.


Also official, this is Back to the 50’s weekend.
It is being held through Sunday, at the
Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minn. If
you like cars 1964 and older this is the event for
you. More information available here.

Saturday, June 20, is the River Valley Classics
“Rollin in the Oldies” cruise-in held at NorthPark
Mall in Davenport, Iowa. Starts at 5 pm, there is
a suggested $2 fee for spectators, and the fun
keeps going until everybody goes home. Find out
more here.

Starting Saturday June 20 and running through June
28 is the Hemmings Motor News Great American Tour
Route 66. Things kick off in Kirkwood, Missouri and
end up in Santa Monica, California. For more
details go here.

Sunday is Father’s Day. If your father is still
around call or stop by on his day.

Since this is about cars we’ll share a video of
the Ferguson Macmillan streamliner during a record
run of 237 mph at El Mirage. It was published June,

We’ll close with a car song. For those who have
been to cruise-ins and shows it should be familiar.
This one is animated.

All we have to do now is catch some good weather
and keep the shiny side up. Enjoy the weekend.
Comments are always welcome.

    I was actually at El Mirage when they did the race. Those cars are FAST. El Mirage is also great for land sailing, which is what I was doing out there.

    Jon Gregory,
    El Mirage is where rodders spend thousands of dollars to make their car faster to get a hat if they go fast enough. I wish we lived
    closer. The land sailing sounds fun too.
