    I am finally getting around to posting the few pictures I took at the Fall Fling on October 26. As I said, I didn't take too many pictures, but here you go; hope you enjoy.

    This is my buddy John Hutchings daughter Erika. I learned that he never taught her about motors. Sheesh! Here she's learning the difference between a Hemi and a Wedge.

    This is my Son, Jerry, and John and Erika Hutchings. We were all friends in Bakersfield. We meet at this show every October; it's a blessing!

    Since I'm always taking the pictures, I'm never in any shots! I asked Johnny to take this picture.

    The Forward Look cars make great subjects. Lots of chrome trim and nice details. You could fill a gallery just with taillight shots.

    Thank you Snotty for taking and sharing the pictures. I love that 73 Chrysler wagon too by the way. I also see the Colt got a ribbon?

    At this show the club members take ribbons and put them on cars that they like for whatever reason, caught their eye, enthusiastic owner, car that has never been to the show, anything. Not exactly judging, not sure how many, maybe a dozen.

    In the Spring this is a fully judged show.

    My Newport received one at Fall fling, 2005. Interesting as it had a HUGE scratched area on it's rear quarter panel! I did it the day before.
