Nothing related to the Ridge today, but went to a great car show this weekend – Du Quoin Street Machine Nationals!
The weather was hot and the cars were hotter. My best friend and I have attended this show for many years. We were sad when they stopped it for several years, but now it is back and better than ever. While I have a love for all things Mustang, this is a great show to see a variety of cars. I highly recommend you mark your calendar for the third weekend in June next year!
When asked why, the V8 Prorsche owner said “why not?”
When I said “variety” this is what I meant – a blown V8 bicycle.
A few more just for giggles!
So not everything we do is about homesteading. I personally love muscle cars and specifically mustangs, all years, all styles, modified, full restored, etc. etc. etc. So even though it was Mother’s Day weekend my lovely wife got us invited to go to Shelby Fest in Jefferson City, MO. The weather was crazy good, the cars were out in numbers and couldn’t have asked for more. One of the highlights was at noon the do a tribute to armed services where they start up all the cars. It was crazy the rumble of horsepower bouncing off the buildings in downtown. I highly recommend the show if you love Shelby’s.
