Member Machines and Gossip

 

Louisville 2017

Several KARC members made the trip, including, Bruce, Jack, Sid, Buckshot, Daris, Lyle, Maynard, Don, Charlie T, David, Mike, Gary, Jerry, Tim, Susie (Dick came along for the ride).

Bruce Roberts received documentation that his 1935 Ford pickup weighs 4,900 pounds. Just ask Buckshot.
Maynard Ketron, and several others can testify that the turn signals on Susie Rutledge's car work really.....really.....really well.
After the grand prize drawing Mikel Smith brought us all together for a motivational speech, it was brief "You're all a bunch of losers!"
Though no one ever seemed to know his name, Maynard's buddy celebrated two (2) birthdays while we were there.
Wheel vendors were very busy. KARC members were seen snatching up the good deals. Naps, ice cream and fried pies were enjoyed by all.

Kingsport Korner (Sorry. Missed Don Hughes’ pickup off to the side).

A privileged few get preferred parking. Is it just for red vehicles? Or maybe slip the valet a $20?

Cuba

KARC members Randy Bledsoe and Betsy, Daniel Gibson and Jan, and Jimmy Webb and Angela recently took a cruise to Cuba.  Randy reports, “It was like stepping back to the 50s.  Hundreds of 50s and 60s cars! If you have a bucket list, move this trip to the top! You will not regret it! It was so much more than expected.” And we thought Back to the Future time travel was the only way to go back to the 50’s.
