Cruising memory lane

Recently our youngest asked me to look for a picture of a car that
we last saw in 2010. Between the two of us we spent about 48 hours
looking and came up with 3 pictures. While the car isn’t included in
these pictures, take a look at what car shows and cruise ins looked
like 10 years ago.

The first is a well-known local car and we have no idea if it is
still around or not. When the shows and cruises open up again we’ll
ask around.

The second picture is of the VooDoo Hellion which I believe was out
of VooDoo Larrys shop. I do remember it had a crowd around all day
as it was a looker.

The blue Model A I honestly don’t remember but I liked the looks of
it so included it here.

The purple A was at the first TorqueFest in Farley, Iowa. Things
have changed since 2010 and the shows just kept coming until the
virus hit. Things will get going again but if you get garage fever
we hope these pictures help.

Enjoy our Thursday as the weekend is just a dream away and more
businesses in Iowa will open up tomorrow. Now for some coffee and a
bite to eat.
Comments are always welcome.

    Yes, the blue “shoebox” convertible is still around! It belongs to Jim and Nancy Mullins of Davenport. I believe they have driven the car over 100,000 miles in the time they have owned. Jim and Nancy are great prople!

    Dale Gilmour,
    thanks for the information. I couldn’t remember the names due to a brain fart. Glad to hear it’s still around.

    It’s been at least 15 yrs since I’ve been to a car show/cruise, but I’ve got a lot of great memories from going to them. I’ve got hundreds of dash plaques from them too~been wondering what I should do with them when I finally get to packing/moving~only have significance to me now.

    Those are all first class cars you posted and I wouldn’t mind having a couple of them~start with the blue convertible~it looks just like the color of our ’50 Olds. You’ve brought back a lot of good memories for me and I TY for that b/c they were good times with our ’50 and ’37 Oldsmobile’s.

    I put our dash plaques on a thin piece of marble that sits in the office with a few trophys. Funny how a few pictures can get the memories flowing. Had me thinking back too.
