TOPIC: Gassers! Boiling Springs, NC 2017

Gassers! Boiling Springs, NC 2017 05 Nov 2017 09:06 #1

So I'm working away Friday morning, when the guy from the local Shopper paper we advertise in brings the latest edition. I always find our ad, proof read it (again)and see what else is going on. WELL! Guess what? There is The Final Battle At Shadyside, the last event of the year for the Southeast Gassers, right here at home sweet home! I knew I was going, called Chris up to see if he was in and charged up the batteries!

The weather wasn't great starting out, a light drizzle was falling when I picked Chris up, but stopped by the time we got in. Overcast, but mild temps made for a nice day. Here's what we saw...

Walking through the pits to the track.









SA Dave wanted to see '57 Chevy photos...





This '55 was pretty bad too...















I see a T shirt idea...





You know I'm a Ford guy.





Cheese it! The cops!



Thinking my buddy Gene Pierce might have made the trk to Boiling Springs, but didn't see him.







This Barracuda sounded and ran as bad a$$ as it looked!





Did I mention I'm a Ford guy? This Fairlane was the real deal!







This Chevy proved to be much badder than it appeared.



Lots of jump in her step!

The Holman Moody stickers weren't just for looks.









Whodathunk??







An AF/X class Hubert Platt car. :drool













Much more to come!

As promised, more photos!

This one was working on my puzzler.







Working our way to the track, lots of cool rides!





It's the little old lady from Pasadena





Crowd control.









:coolio :rotf



Equipped with the original big block Chevy.





TOO COOL!







Who doesn't dig the '28-29 Tudors?






What did you find, Chris?



I know there's a motor in there somewhere!



Oh! There it is. :rotf

Hey Grampa, can I have one of those?



I gotta get my '52 back on the road... :hmmm





Good to see a Ford in a Ford.





Sinister









This was something I'd never seen rodded before and it's home built!











It's a 1937 Nash. B)

Here come da Judge!



A minty fresh Ford.





This was one smooth '55 Chevy!





Coulda brought this home...









A moonshine still posing as a mild mannered flathead.







When I says whoa, I means WHOA!



Surf's up, Pancho!





Mama, there's that man again.





Nova wagons never looked this good new.





Oh Dave....





Anglia



Revell kits come to life.



A Ford with lock washers (Mercury) :rotf



One of the quicker Fords, this Fairlane was swell!







Time for a little sauerkraut?



Porsche powered, no less.



Dammit, dude!



Several Henry J's were in attendance.





The cops again...



Making up for no '57 Chevy photos last event.





Oh yeah! More Southern Flyer photos





When was the last time you saw a Falcon wagon?





All looks, no go.







It went down the track like it was dragging a piano. :stinker

One very quick Vette!





Freebird!



More badass Ford fotos!









By this time, I was having trouble recalling what I had photographed and just went for it. I wish I could share some of the cell phone video I took, not very good footage, but impressive sounds!

More to come, if you can stand it!

My finger is getting tired! :rotf



Load 'em up and haul 'em home!







Really, shouldn't they all be? :coolio













The Widow Maker lived up to it's name, jumped the fronts off the pavement at each gear change!



Naw, it couldn't be...




This year's points leader, very fast!





This is how cozy this track is, we were just feet from the action!





Classical Gasser





:rockon





On the way out, the sun had broken through and I got a few more good photo ops.









This sums it up.





What a great day! Oh yeah and IOWA 55 Ohio State 24!!!! :yipee :yipee

nothing says party with me than grey haired mullet with beer gut. :rotf

Dig the cannon and all the old confederates hanging around it.

I think that Nash was at the show Chris and I went to at the NC Transportation Museum a couple of years ago.

:popcorn

Thanks for posting Mike . Some very nice cars and a lot of very expensive toys there .

Bob , you might be right about the Nash . Just seeing it was well worth the trip for me. Beautiful car . Hard to believe the engine is all factory original and can still cruise the highway at 80 MPH without any problems.

Skarelane and Flower Power were really interesting to watch . You would think something more exotic would have stolen the show . Well the VW was cool too, but there was no one there to compete in his class .

Never did figure out who stole the engine from the 2 CV... :thumbsup

Cheers, Christian B)
