Well I'm on another visit to the states and this time I'm with my partner and some other non rodders.So this is more of a tourist visit but I did stipulate I wanted to go to the BTTFs if it's the only Hotrod thing I do.

So in saying all that we all did go and to my friends surprise they were dumb struck over the size of the event and the fairgrounds.

While this is my fifth visit stateside and I have been to many events this one was right up there with the best of them.

11995 official entries apparently made it a record amount of cars.

There were lots of good cars and I still didn't see them all but non the less it was excellent.

When I can figure out how to post pix from my iPad I will.

I don't know if he still owns it, but a buddy from Windsor Canada built the blue 32 sedan.

Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately we don't have fairgrounds like you do in the US 'cause it adds so much more atmosphere to the the event.


























That's about it for my pix I wish I had taken my video camera now.

Hopefuly I can make trip #6 I still want to see the Frog Follies, the Turkey Shoot and the LA Roadster show and maybe one more trip to Bonneville and ........ Laughing

I can't recall his name right now. The first year out with it he won an award at Kalamazoo. We stayed at the same motel as he did that year.

He was in the room next to us the year Dick Waite went with me. I don't even remember what car I took that year, it may have been Dick's 48.

We went to Back to the fifties 2 yrs ago w/the Street Rodder Road Tour. Great event, they had 11,000 cars on Friday! I got to go to the NSRA Nats there in the late 80's & always wanted to go back.
