Sunday Aug 27 was the Deuce / Merc show.  this show is restricted to pre 1951 and was very well attended!

Chevy coupe has been on the road and virtually unchanged since the early 70's

A few great pieces of Ken Kay's art work were given away... For the one piece with the V8 symbol, they gave the Deuce owners a pewter key chain from Dale Grau and then dealt everyone a poker hand.............of course mine sucked...but I still got another cool key chaiin

I really like the '34 truck. Some very cool stuff here, not the usual collection of cookie cutter cars. That Zephyr convert is really neat too. Good stuff!

I am new here but will get intros etc sorted out.  The little 32 Bantam coupe nostalgia altered is mine.  When I built that car for the street back in 1965, Ken Kay painted it for me, not the colour that is on it now.  I've been doing shows of every type for ever it seems and this is the best show I have ever been to.

Welcome aboard, that Bantam coupe sounded great.  loved the beer cans on the carbs as chokes so it would start and the sound changed with each one you removed!  Enjoy the site! and thanks for bringing out such a cool ride. Be sure to share some history and pics with everyone here, we love that stuff!
