1st Annual SWMO Hot Rod Hundred (and a half!)

[portfolio_slideshow id=2039]

I’m finally getting around to posting a follow up to the SWMO Hot Rod Hundred event that the CrossMembers Car Club put together, yesterday, 4/19/2014. I gotta say, to all the participants, thanks for your patience with us, as we were trying to make adjustments to work through the logistics of our underestimated expectations and the incredible turnout that we had. When I realized that we had over 50 cars that were going to participate, I figured it might be easier to herd a group of cats, but I was gonna hang in there and do my best!

The event is only as good as the quality of people that participate. We had an incredible group of quality people who chose to spend their Easter Saturday with us.

A special thanks to Sheri Vaughn, for letting me borrow these photos, and share her “view through the lense” on the web site. One of the disadvantages of riding point in the roundup, is that you miss out on the experience of the line in front of ya.

There are tons more pictures that I will more than likely be sharing, but I have yet to collect them. Cory McMahon took several hundred shots, and he’s agreed to let us share some of those, too.

Sometime, over the next few days, I will circle back and add captions and such.

Thanks to my fellow CrossMembers guys and their families, for their support in making this thing happen, for BenD and his family, and Steve, for helping Ben prepare the chili lunch and clean up the park, and the whole host of other folks that have served as encouragers and as a sounding board. I would have gone nuts without you all.

Most of all, thanks to all those who participated. Without you, yesterday would have been a solo cruise through the country for me! 😉

  2. Bret…we had a great time. I sent my parents back to Kansas with stories to tell. Great scenery and great people. Thanks again for putting everything together. And a special shout out to Long Roof Larry for keeping an eye on us throughout the day. The ’51 had a couple of bad spells and he stuck around to make sure we kept moving.

    Here’s a link to my latest blog post and a couple of my favorite shots:
