Slo Poks at Kalama

The Untouchables Car Club show in Kalama on Sunday was greeted with some great weather (read that not smoking hot).  Even after a more than full day of hot rods at our Uptown Village Show, and definitely plenty of heat, some die hard Slo Poks were up bright at early and on the streets of Kalama.  Of the three Slo Poks cars in attendance, two were winners!  Gary Trenner's '32 3W won it's first trophy and Chuck and Kay's Cadillac was also a winner.  Other Poks noted "Poking" around were pledge Tom Phillips with his '34, Milt and Bart.  Thanks to Bianca for the pictures.
It was a very nice 350 car show.

2016 Uptown Village Show and Shine

Well, the 2016 Uptown Village Show and Shine is now in the record books.  We were hoping to set a car count record, not a high temperature record, but we'll take it.  Rain was NOT a problem this year, with the media was squawking about high heat warnings for days may have kept some away.  Despite the hype, 100 faithful hot rodders came out to have a great time on Main Street last Saturday.  This year was another year of the best rodders and cars in the area with tons of raffle prizes and hand made trophies all for a good cause, support of the Hough Foundation who exists to enrich Hough Elementary School.
Finnski Jr and Pete put in tons of hours to make this show happen, along with dedicated efforts from many others, too many to list, doing all of the tasks that make a show like this happen.  And we can't forget the support we get from the Uptown Village Association.  There were meetings, permits, goodie bag stuffing, raffle prize collecting, school supply gathering and the list goes on and on.  And of course, all of that hard work would be in vain without the generous support of our many trophy sponsors and vendors.  Just take a look at the pictures to see all the people and vendors that put in a full day at the show and hours behind the scenes.
Thanks to all for a successful 2016 show!

Best of show and winner of the Slo Poks signature Brizlawn/Comeau guitar went to Estranged car club member's '32 3W.

Tory Wins National Event!

From Brother Tory:
I don't even know where to begin. First, A huge thank you to each and every one of you for helping us celebrate our win. Messages from near and far are appreciated so much! I wish I could either shake your hands or give you all a hug in person. There've been so many key players throughout the 42 years of messing around with cars. We have built such a huge race family throughout the country. I would be on here for days thanking all the people and companies that have influenced, helped, supported, cheered, brought beer, etc.. Having Megan and Carina Renee 100% involved makes me the luckiest guy around. It was an emotional win(still is!) to say the least. To have my daughters making great car decisions and keeping me in line? Priceless!! You all know how much I love my girls and how proud I am to be their dad. Again, thank you all SO much!! GO COUGS!!!!!
