2018 Snowflake Pioneer Days

Fredrickson Park, Taylor AZ

July 21st, 2018

This year the show was moved from the golf course to Fredrickson Park in Taylor. The park was a bit smaller for car parking, but offered a fair amount of shade. Also a plus was the playground and some activities for the kids, and this area has a lot of Kids!

Pioneer Days!

The only club members at the show were Steve & Terri Bessie with Steve’s 1950 Chevy pickup that received a 1st place award in the modified pickup class. Michelle and I brought the wagon and our two favorite redheads, Zoe and Satori.

 

A nice feature of this show is that they open it to diesel truck tractors. Each year the participation has grown. Most had been modified /customized and all looked great.

Of special interest was a restored 1932 Studebaker Cabriolet. I had honesty forgotten how beautiful the pre Depression Studebakers were. Also worthy of motion was a beautiful 1967 427 Malibu in a wonderful dark metallic blue.

This year we are back in a normal monsoon weather pattern and by 2:30 the clouds started building in and the award ceremony came to an end. We made  it home in time to miss most of the rain.

Keep safe and enjoy what is left of summer!

Conrad
