The weekend rushed up on us but we’re not
complaining. Once again the weather forecast is for
sunny skies for the weekend so in preparation we
present the following events, videos, opinions,
and/or worthless facts.
Saturday, August 15th is the Flying Eyeball
Reunion held at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds
and will run from 9 am to 4 pm.
Also Saturday is the Rollin’ In The Oldies Cruise
In held at NorthPark Mall in Davenport, Iowa. This
event is hosted by the River Valley Classics Car
Club and starts at 5 pm.
Sunday, August 16th is the Benefit For Joshua
Lofquist Car Show at Dahl Ford, 1310 E. Kimberly
Road in Davenport, Iowa hosted by the Quad Citites
Mustang Club and Dahl Ford. Hours are 11 am to 3 pm.
This is also the weekend for the Goodguys 14th
Great Northwest Nationals in Spokane, Washington,
the Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals in Bowling Green,
Kentucky, and the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit.
When I first heard of this 23′ T bucket with a
Detroit diesel in it I wasn’t sure what to think.
After seeing it scoot down the road I like it.
Since there are strange vehicles out there and
somehow the videos hone in on my computer here is a
really different Russian snowmobile from the 50’s.
Remember the Drive-In Movies? I can almost smell
the popcorn thinking about it, but a big part of
any drive-in experience was the ads and PSAs.
After the movie we had to eat so we’d head to
a Drive-In restaurant.
And if there was room to sit inside, Frankie Valli
would probably be on the jukebox.
After that cruise down memory lane we have to stop
for gas and look for an A & W. Hope you enjoyed it
and have a great weekend.
Comments are always welcome.
