This might have been the best show yet!!

Thanks to all who attended and to those that worked so hard to make this show stand out so differently than years past!!

And a very special thanks to
Paul&Paula and Bob & Nancy for that great beach front.

Thanks to Steve, Tim and George for the big hand at clean up time. What a special group of friends we have at ChevyTalk.

Another picture that I missed getting into.
I arrived one minute after the Survivor pic.
After the survivor pic I worked the testing
signup area. I had a lot of celebs.
I signed up Barry Meguiar, (and thanked him
for his support and generous additions
to the goodie bags. I met Kenny Youngblood
the drag racing legend,and a lot of the vendors dropped by for a test. It feels so good getting
a chance to help so many people at one time.
I am going to finish my "thrash project",
( a 1951 Chevy 2 door Fleetline ),
and bring it next year.

George..., if you were in the pic, the camera would have probably broken and there wouldn't have even been this picture for all of us to enjoy!

Well, Theresa posted HER pics - thought mine were kinda blurry... .

It was great to meet the folks behind the site names! So, who is the new CT Karting Champion?

After gassing up across from the fairgrounds, I learned I had NO BRAKE LIGHTS! Fooled around with it some this morning - tried to plug the TBL direct to a hot terminal, no luck. Made it home OK though!

After a shower and nap, we came back for the Speedway Bike races - those riders need tractor seats for the 'nads they have for racing those bikes! Quite a show, even in the stands!

I hope we can all meet again and even add a few more members at another get-together or show here in So-Cal, besides CFAC! Theresa And I had a great time with you folks - MUCHO THANKS!!!

Take Care, Tim

Tony, sorry I couldn't make it this year. As you know a family sickness stopped me from joining you.

From the look of this photo you sure had a rough time. I've also seen a photo of your GF, man you're a lucky guy.

Tony has a set of flipflops with a stealth bottle opener built into the bottom.

Saw 'em myself when he was lounging around in a beach chair waiting for his pic with the CT babe.

here's another shot of Tony just mesmerized with the fire engine parade starting the days cruisin' events.

And I think that's either Thadd or NailheadV8 (George) under the sombrero in the fully reclined position. Somebody chime in here if I'm wrong.

Paul, that was def me, but the dude sitting was 1960 Sedan Delivery. What a great collection of Firetrucks. There are about 20 of them.


Story behind that. CFAC was started in September 2011 and the show was almost cancelled because of 9/11. It was decided to go on with the show anyway and pay tribute to the NYFD. Ever since then the show has been kicked off with the Fire Truck parade which is still intended to pay respect to the fallen heroes from the WTC disaster.

The person in pic #4 is Thadd's sister-in-law.
Her name is Diane.
She had a great time at the show.
