AND THEN THERE WERE 4
7 fun seekers in 4 cars headed out Thursday, May 11 for San Diego and over The Hill Gang’s 50 th Streak. We were expecting a bigger turnout. Ready for fun were; The Ways and the red 40 Ford, the Covers and the Blue/Grey 37 Ford, Phil Murray (sans his better half) in the many colored 37 Phantom, and the Besore’s in the red 38 Dodge Brothers.
We met up in Gila Bend to minimize the I-10 issues. Freshly fed, cars gassed, people just out of the comfort station, we headed for the I-8.
Pretty much just chilling and cruising our way to Yuma and a gas lunch break. On into San Diego and the usual traffic.
We checked into our hotel and the guys went to Campland to get registration packets.
Early Friday morning we got to the show and we’re parked in the back row so we could get out later to return to the hotel. The rest of the cars stayed overnight.
We bought raffle tickets, hung out for awhile then went to back to hotel. We walked the Pacific Beach boardwalk area for dinner.
Sat-morning early, but not early enough as we got parked in the middle of the field.
We would not be leaving anytime soon as we had cars front back and both sides.
Danise has posted a lot of photos featuring the many great cars on our website.
I added some I took, great examples of So Calif hot rods.
Sat was a long day frustrating as nobody in our group won a raffle item.
Sunday we headed home into a headwind.
Larry and Teressa told us about a restaurant in Alpine “Janet’s Montana cafe”. Good food!
The San Diego chapter was very friendly and we received a warm welcome.
Imagine … 50 years they have been doing this show! What an accomplishment…
