Default my 49 S&S and friends

I went to a huge rat and traditional hot rod show in Dubuque, IA a few weeks ago and thought I would post some pix I took of my S&S. I know the car is very dirty, but so was every one else's, it rained off and all on all weekend.
First, I saw this ambulance service and just had to get a shot.
Second, me, and world famous Tattoo artist best known for his traditional style Oliver Peck (also a judge on the show Ink Masters) stopped by while on a road trip, very cool laid back guy.
The next few of the pix was a photo shoot for one of the rat rod magazines, so I had to take some right along with their photographer. Too bad they got the bad side of the coach.
The last one in the hotel parking lot, I think this truck will fit in the back of mine.

John

Did you check out the SpeedCult booth ?

There is a show like that in MI today but with the weather I decided to stay home this year.

Give yourself a slap for thinking of selling that baby when you had the gas tank issue a month ago.

Take it easy bro,
Darren

I would have to slap myself every day. I think about selling it more than you think. I just know I will regret it, that and I have no idea what to even ask for it. I know it needs A LOT of work, but I do love it (most of the time) and its still very solid, even the undercarriage and frame look like the car is only a couple years old. I just get disappointed knowing it will never get the restoration it deserves.

Darren, forgot to answer your question. I checked out most the booths, but didn't pay any attention to the names, what do they sell?
Torquefest is always a great turn out, there is always things going on, and they are strict on their rules so its nice not to have to see muscle cars, Camaros, mustangs, or new cars.

A coach like that deserves to be shown off at a PCS International Meet! I know just the time and place...

Tony, only if I get to drive the Paramount that I let you have
Kyle, just the fact of your coach being white would be a red flag. Im not a fan of white.
I would like a green three way or flower car though..LOL. Don't worry as of now its not for sale, just thinking about it more and more. I will probably keep it for quite some time. Rocky has been working on me too.
