Slo Poks Uptown Village Show 'n Shine

The Slo Poks 3rd annual Uptown Village Show 'n Shine was a huge success.  Before the show opened, the Slo Pok cars were all lined up on the east side of Main street, all 43 of them.  It was really impressive to see the quality and variety of cars that make up the Slo Poks, over 2 1/2 blocks of them!  Then, add in 130+ show goers, and we had us car show!  The weather was perfect.  Cars were lining up as early as 7:15, gates didn't open until 10.  We let cars in as soon as we were ready for them, about 8:15.  It was a great day, take a look at the pics to get a feel for the happenings of the day.  I haven't heard any numbers yet, but I am sure we will be able to donate a bunch of school supplies and support to the Hough Foundation.





The GB2 trophy of trophy winner was awarded to Rodger Huntley's traditional Model A coupe.

The "putting out the barricades parade"






Don found a little bag legal pot on the street.  It was determined that it would not be wise to add it to the raffle prizes.











Cars lined up at the gate, 3 wide, at 7:45 AM.  Gates scheduled to open at 10 AM.













GB2 had a little problem with the front end, the fasteners that hold the steering arm on the LH spindle came loose/off.  So, not only did we have a car show, but a tech clinic as well.




















I found my reserved parking spot. . . . .
