Early Friday morning Feb 3rd.
Ron Olmstead, Larry way, Val Muyres, Steve Besore and myself headed out for Pomona and the GNRS. This year our rides were Val’s 40 and Ron’s 35, Steve’s 32 all Fords. Nonmember but good buddy Chip and his co-pilot Judy went with us in the Model A P-up. By the time we got on road out of town I think Val had already burnt a tank of gas. Long way from Sun Lakes to meet with us. Lunch at Cheriako summit (SP) , Then on in to San Dimas.
We checked in our hotel, and then supper at the Roady House restaurant a few doors down from the Early Ford store.
GNRS never disappoints, whatever your hot rod/custom interest, it’s there! And it’s there in multiples and every color combo possible. Vintage builds and new builds some exotic some retro and all perfect. AMBR cars to drivers of every flavor it’s just boggling!
Interesting that some former AMBR cars show up being driven to the event! Love that. Each of the building are a different venue, hard to pick a favorite.
Then there’s about 800-1000 cars outside on Saturday the “big daddy drive in’s”.
Just a spectacular event!
We spotted Terry Scotts x-roadster there, took a photo and talked to new owner (sorry Terry doesn’t sound like you could get it back)
Got some rain in sunny California before stopping for breakfast. Steve’s getting the full Roadster road trip experience.
Other than a nagging valve cover oil leak in the 35, and a dead battery in the 32 we had a reasonable trouble free run to and from.
Ya shoulda been there!

Del Mar, CA.
GoodGuys held their show this year in October, moved from April due to Covid restrictions. It was held at the fairgrounds in Del Mar as usual. A good number of members made the trek over from the Phoenix area to take in the show. A great time was had by all with wonderful weather for all three days. The guys had lots of cars to look at and the ladies enjoyed a little shopping along with looking at the cars.

Vintage Wings and Wheels Car Show, Mesa, AZ.
It seems to be coming an OTHG tradition that someone has to have their car pushed in to the show. This year it was Will Myer’s beautiful ’40 Coupe. It was having a starting problem so President Ron Boen and 3 ladies from the club assisted Will in pushing the coupe. Problem turned out to be a loose connection, easy fix! Picture seems to show that the Coupe has earned it’s wings!

Falcon Field held their 3rd. annual Wings and Wheels Car Show with about 200 collector cars and many vintage aircraft on display. The Aviation Museum is always interesting with various stages of restoration going on. There were food trucks available with a good selection from which to choose. We had 10 cars with 17 members attend.

Once again we missed out on being drawn for the Run to the Pines car show at the Pinetop Country Club. We had some family business to take care of Saturday AM so we didn’t get to the show until later in the afternoon. Steve and Terri Besore were at the show as was Terry and Barb Scott. Also in attendance as spectators were former club members Rod and Nancy Downs who were driving a late model Corvette.
We wandered around a bit and talked with folks we hadn’t seen for awhile, then head down to Lakeside for an early supper.

Show Low, Az

1st weekend of June and we are on Frontier Fields in Show Low for our annual car show. This tradition goes back to 2003 with the car show a major part of the Show Low Days town celebration, which includes an Arts and Craft Show, The Derby Down the Deuce gravity car race, stick pony races and our Wiener Dog race. We also have the Show Low Main Street Farmers Market at the down town Festival Market Place Park.
In recent years all of the activities have grown larger so the decision was made to have the event span two weekends, with the Car Show taking the first weekend and the Derby gravity car races and other events the following weekend.
Cruzin the Rim Car Show
In past years the Show Low Days Car Show was very well supported by the club, however in recent years club attendance has been down. Bob Bailey drove his 40 Ford Coupe, Dave and Ann Bennett in their 1937 Cadillac Sedan, Steve and Terry Besore drove their 50 Chevy Pick Up in from their Ranch in White Mountain Lakes and Michelle & I drove our 56 Dodge wagon down the street to Frontier. Also attending was Charlie and Danise Cover who drove their daily driver over from Heber.
