Flats Where It's At
Well we had a great time today. Met Attomspliter and Duelquadpete for the first time in person and it was good to put faces with names.Saw and talked to LightspeedMike and the duo from Pontipool Bluechev and Moondoll(MustangSally).That is the best part of this show the people .Lots of cars of all descriptions,rods,customs,muscleand best of all lots of rats.Trucks are really popular here and there were tons of them,all makes and styles.The club was all together for a change and we managed to get club participation.I had a really fun time in the slow drags and the rest of the Ratlers said I should stick to this type of drag race since I didn't have to try and remember to shift and therefore didn't blow up my engine this time.Fatstax got best rat and the unstopable team of Porkchop,Sactou,Grumpy and me won the piston toss game .I guess the success will go to our heads and we will now turn into trophy hogs.Talking about trophies ,the Coasters guys and gals made some of the coolest trophies you have ever seen.All in all it was a great day and the Coasters should be very proud of the show they worked so hard to put on. Everyone I talked to had a great day. Ed
Any day with friends doin car stuff is a good day

Sorry, no info on car, no one around it all day. Saw it drive in & thought wow, another fast back, then a 51 Checy fast back rolled in, OK now there a 3 of us here. Think the olds might belong to Host club member, as it was parked near their cars & they were all "very' busy with the show!!!!
It was great to met you Pete, sorry that I couldn't talk longer, just a busy day
The rough tally at the end of the day was just over 300 cars, with one from Florida.
The Nash and The Merc beside it are both owned by Ed Mclean ( not sure of the name spelling)
Thanks for posting the great pictures and hope you had a nice tour on the way home

I had a great time meeting some of you , I left at 1:15 ish as the lack of shade & me not over this "Q" fever 100% was doing me in!!!! Should have brought an umbrella but didn't know what the layout was going to be. Had a great trip home, took the slow route & enjoyed the ride. I "kinda pounded the Torpedo back" on the way there, & found out it is quicker than I thought. Getting on the 401 at Bowmanville, I "flogged it" off the on ramp, & the P/up truck that was eastbound at ramp doing 75 mph or so, never got by me as I accelerated off the ramp, he caught up at Bennit Rd. & I got a BIG thumbs up I've got 559 mi on it now so time to "make it WORK!!!!
There are 106 miles to Chicago. We have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
i had a great time that day, winning best rat was fun for sure. too bad it wont be at that site next year, it was a great locale. i missed the slow drags but ed went in to take one for the club and defend our honour.
I do believe that the pickup in the 4th pic with the woodpecker decal is from my home town.

Ya, Ed's a "TROOPER" Rob, have to disagree on location. yes it brought in a lot of "walk in's being local BUT on a day like the show day, HOT & Sunny, there was no shade any where, other than if you brought your own!!! & field was quite "bumpy lumpy" hard for walking & driving in & out. Don't get me wrong here,it was a GREAT SHOW & I know host club had to move from previous location, & find a new spot, & did a wonderfull job and look how many vehicles showed up 300+ When you get a little older, & have "bad knee's" you'll know how hard it is to walk on a Lumpy surface" [ I think the furrows were under the grass from the last plowing] If I had known about the field , I would have brought a umbrella or something, heard it will likely move to Roseneath next yr. ??? I enjoyed it, saw lots of cars & trucks, & spoke to a lot of nice,friendly car owners, that I'd never seen before or talked too, it's good to travel "outside" of your area & see some new "stuff'
