Good Guys - Texas Motor Speedway

Mrs. Bear and I are spending the weekend out at the Good Guys show with the Beast. If you're in the area, stop on by and say howdy.
Look for one of the pop-up canopys with a Texas flag motif.

Yessir, we parked in the Homebuilt Heaven lot. I was proud to be able to put all the marks on the entry from in the "I Did It Myself" column. We didn't win anything, but then I didn't really expect to. There were a gazillion really nice cars out there. We got to drive around the track a few times - not "at speed", just following a lead car - but it was still cool.
The dumps are working again so we had a ball cruising through the place with them open. We sure got lots of looks

wish more shows had a category like that ....can never decide which category i fall into , so usually end up in the "street rod" but most of those are full out resto-mods. Like you said its award enough to have the enthusiast show interest and be able to say "i did that". Hope your taking a lot of pics to share...

Probably the best "reward" I got over the weekend was from all the people, professional paint/body guys included, whose jaws dropped when I told them I did it myself in my garage, and it was my first. That was gratifying.

I'm working on putting together a video that Mrs. Bear shot while we were driving around the track.

Tooooo Coooool!!!....they do that at MIS near the end of the season, I am there this year. Sounds like Mrs. Bear had an exhilarating time.... I bet you were like a proud new Pappa sitting by the Beast...you should be, one hell of a nice job.

Awesome deal Bear.

You sir are my inspiration. I think you should have won for the meanest mother f'er category. But that's just me.
