Fall Space City Cruisers Car Show
Dr Scott Mosby Kingwood Car Show
Good Grub And Gears Car Show And Fall Festival
I've always wondered how car owners decide on what show to display their vehicles at when there's more that one show in the area. For my brother and
me covering the shows, it's easy; attend them both especially if they're only ten miles apart. In late October, the Space City Cruisers held their Fall Car
Show at Walter Hall Park in League City while just down the road in Friendswood, the Good Grub and Gears Car Show was going on. As you can see
below, great looking cars were at both venues. I'm currently working on submitting extended coverage of both shows to Hotrod Hotline. I'll let you
know when they're posted.
Having said that (my brother and I covering both shows), check out this wild Ford Shotgun powered roadster that's been a Houston area regular for a
few years now doing what we did; checking out both shows. On the left, he's cruising into Walter Hall Park and on the right, we found him parked in the
"spectator" area at the Friendswood show. I'll be the first to admit it; he's having a lot more fun than my brother and I are!
Besides the car shows posted above and our regular visit to the Niftee 50ees Classic Cruise In Saturday night, I sent my brother up to Kingwood on
Sunday to cover the annual Dr. Scott Mosby Kingwood Car Show. Again, some great looking vehicles.
Talk about a "steal". This incredibly well done Pro Street 1965 El Camino
recently sold at auction with no reserve for only $10,000! Where in the
hell was I?
Raymond Beadle (December 16, 1943 - October 20, 2014)
On my last update, I posted several Raymond Beadle images I had taken
over the years including a couple that I had autographed. Above is one of
my favorites. It was taken 35 years ago at Bill Hielcher's Green Valley
Race City in Fort Worth. His Blue Max Funny Car is racing the
Budweiser King of Kenny Bernstein with the late NHRA starter Buster
Couch standing between them.
If you've visited my website before, you already know that "On The Road" are images my brother
and I take while we're "on the road", usually on our way to or from a show. Below left is a 4-wheel
drive Ford parked at a 4-Wheel shop in League City that has a very familiar look to it . Below that is
a 4-wheel drive '40 Ford panel we saw near my wife's cousin's house also in League City. My brother
spotted the well-done early Mustang parked somewhere in the Houston Heights where we grew up.
On the image below, the red Ford coupe is literally "on the road". It was also taken in League City.
