Nice show.  I think I saw my brother-in-law's bucket-T he had to sell it because of financial issue a few years ago.  I'm have to show him this to get it confirmed but again may be somethings are best not done.  It was his baby and lots of years spend putting it together.

Cool pics.  I've never understood the appeal of the Rat Rod or flat paint finishes.  Anyone know what kind of V12 was in that rat rod?

You and me both, Gary! Both the rat rods and the flat paint just doesn't do it for me. Just looks unfinished. Nothing looks better than a well made and finished street rod. There were a lot of cool cars there, Larry! Thanks for sharing!

It is a GREAT show - both in and out of the fairgrounds.  Rain or shine the place is stuffed with cars.  I don't think it is possible to see every car on the grounds over the four days of the show.
 
It is definitely a "bucket list" event.  Thumbs Up
