This past weekend was full of Mid-August SWMO hot rod guy awesomeness. The Ozarks Antique Auto Club hosted their annual swap meet, and the HAMB Drags were on Saturday, over in Asbury, MO.

On Friday, I met up with my buddy, David Hay, and we ran out to the swap meet. Afterwards, we grabbed some lunch, at Mexican Villa, and he headed on over to Joplin, and I got back to work.

On Saturday, I ran by and picked up Quentin Brown, and we cruised in my coupe, over to the HAMB Drags. We blasted across old Route 66, and found our way to Ryno’s shop, where some of the guys were gathering before the drags.

The drags were cool, as always, but I think I spent way more time looking at cars and talking to friends, than I did watching the races. I didn’t take a whole lot of photos, and I really meant to take pictures of Christopher Hay’s sedan, but I got sidetracked!

This coming weekend, the coupe and I, will be heading up to Dads house, picking him up, and roaring across Illinois, to the Frog Follies, in Evansville, IN. If ya see me over there, be sure to stop me and say hello!

I can guarantee that I will have more photos, when I get back!

    As always, thanks so much for the photos. I can’t make it to any of these events, but seeing the pics gives me an idea of what’s happening! Oh, & did I mention that I like ’36 coupes………….??
