Weekend odds and ends

Since it’s Friday and we usually post some car
events here are a few local shows/cruise-ins you
may like to attend.

Saturday, October 3rd, is the Toys for Tots
Cruise-In held at NorthPark Mall in Davenport, Iowa
starting at 5 pm. Santa will be there with his
Santa Mobile, the Marine Corps will be accepting
toys for families in need (no stuffed animals),
and West High School class of 1970 will be there
too.

Sunday, October 4th, is the Buffalo, Iowa Pumpkin
Patch Car & Bike Show at 1500 Front Street in
Buffalo, Iowa. It is hosted by the Quad Cities
Gearheads, runs from 8 am to 3 pm and is free for
spectators. There will be food vendors, hay rack
rides, and you can check out the straw castle or
pick pumpkins from the patch.

Also on Sunday, October 4th, is the Hot Rods &
Harleys Car Show at Main Street Square in Hopkinton,
Iowa. For more information go here.

If you are a fan of carburetors, or just want to
keep your classic stock, the following video will
help you identify what kind of 4-barrel you have.

Think the self-parking car is something new? This
one doesn’t quite park itself, but it can get into
a tight space. That must have been something to see
in 1927.

Just because we Live in Iowa we’ll share this one
that shows how to start a John Deer model G farm
tractor. It can be tricky.

We’ll end this post with an old standard by Bobby
Bare. If you remember the 70s, you remember “Drop
Kick Me Jesus (Through the Goalposts of Life)”.

So now you know about some local events,
carburetors, automobile innovations, how to start
an old tractor, and heard a song. It just doesn’t
get much better than that. Enjoy the weekend.
