8th Annual Car Show

Steve & Terri Besore in their 1950 Chevy Pickup joined Michelle and I in our 1939 Ford Sedan for the drive over to Alpine for the Blast From The Past Car Show. The weather was great mid 70s in the morning warming up to 82 in the afternoon. This year is the 8th time that they have put the show on and they had probably the best turnout ever. I am guessing about 100 cars made the at least one hour plus drive to a town at 8500′ out in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

Some really nice cars showed this year. Steve Wing had his new 1955 Chevy gasser out. He built it for the Drag and Drive series his 1st time out was at the recent Tucson Nostalgia Drags. Car looks great! Also there was a 1955 I think Mack Semi Tractor that I would love to own.

The show is very well organized and really a lot of fun.  Both Steve and I won runner up trophies, which are always unique at this show. This year they were small gumball machines with the show info placed on them…

Several of our friends from the White Mountain Cruisers won a number of the trophies as well.  We enjoyed a nice drive back to Show Low with Steve & Terri.  It’s nice to have club friends living up here now!

Till next time!
