Dec. Cars and Coffee

I forgot to charge my camera for cars and coffee so when I showed up I only got a few pictures and then the camera went dead. I forgot I took any at all until the other night when I was using the camera to take eclipse pictures.

Anyhow, the show was for Toys for Tots and had a little lighter turn out than normal but it was great weather.



I took the "family" Challenger out.





Green stang...not real Bullitt-E but sorta Bullitt-E.


A newer Bullitt...


Eric's Bullitt...



Very nice "beep, beep" car.

Some more old pics of my 1969 Judge.


How about these for a mid 1980's flashback?

These pics have to be from right before I sold the car and might have been pictures I took so that I could use one to list the car in Auto Trader.

My brand new at the time 1987 Monte Carlo SS is in the background. I still remember picking that car up. They still had some 1986 ones on the lot but I wanted the 1987 because of the new style taillights on the car.

My dad still had his dark blue 1935 Chevy and it was finished, and my 50 merc is not in any of the garages meaning it was already torn down and at Wade's Rod and Custom getting worked on.

I also have the horrid Cragar wheels on the car because I did not want to let my Centerlines go with the car.

Random Polaroids of cars from the 1980's


As I mentioned in the Bass post before this one I found some random polaroids. This first one is my dad's 1935 Chevy (the only year of suicide doors on them by the way) under construction but running on its own power.

I am not a fan of the painted bumpers on it but I did like the color matched wheels and small caps he used at first. The car would later have mag wheels on it.


A rear shot of the 1955 Chevy I had but we never did anything with because I was all into my 1969 GTO Judge. As far as I know it was parted out.


I totally forgot about this thing. My dad bought it and only kept if for a short time. I asked him about it and all he could really remember is he got a killer deal on it and flipped in and made a big profit. He said that was the only reason he bought it and he never even really drove it. I had fun with it a couple of weekends before it was sold.

That is me driving it when I was in high school. I probably took in down to Forest Lane and hit the Plano Burger King parking lot at Independence and Parker like I always did on the weekends.

The Burger King has been gone for many years and a Tom Thumb gas station sits at that spot today. Forest in Dallas was not dead yet during my high school years (early to mid 80's) and that Burger King actually attracted a ton of cars in Plano for several years and then it just died.

The Plano Senior High parking lot after games on Friday was also a big hang out spot for several years.

My Bass Collection: Circa 1986

Found a bunch of random polaroid pics the other day.

I am pretty sure these are from 1986 and from the day I got my '57 Fender P Bass Reissue.



No big stickers, no ruined paint, just some nice surf green action. This is the bass I still have but is painted purple to match my cars.

I also still had my red Ric at the time.

I don't even remember doing it and they must have not been on them for long but on both of them I have matching Rat Fink stickers on the pick guards.
