Summer Over but NOT Car Shows

For a lot of the Northern Hemisphere Summer is “officially” over (apparently we turn our locks back on November 2nd)…..I am not quite sure in this region summer’s in any hurry to boogie since the temperatures coming up look “perfectly” warm. Coming right up this week sounds like more summer fun to us:

  • Thursday is the Car Guys Care Cruise-In at Dixie Sunset Plaza (That is just East of Maverick)   →   Sunset Plaza 9-25-14
  • Saturday brings up one of the largest and most popular Car Shows in the desert region  the “Red Rocks Car Show” in Santa Clara   →   Red Rocks Car Show 9-27-14
  • Saturday is also another outstanding smaller show at Carmel Junction – This is one of the greatest spots for a show around…..grass, lots of shade, food all around the place, live entertainment, and more. This is the first time they have scheduled it to conflict with Red Rocks, but it should be interesting. Carmel Junction is the other side of Zion Park at the Hwy. 89 Junction   →   Thunderbird Golf Course
  • The always popular Saturday Night Fix in Cedar City
  • Saturday afternoon/evening is Trippin’ at Freddy’s in St. George   →   Freddy’s 9-27-14
  • AND, if you are looking for a bit of a longer road trip the Las Vegas Valley is full of Car Events and some BIG Car Shows   →   Henderson Super Run 9-25-28      Las Vegas Auto Swap Meet 9-21-14      Wurstfest Car Show Boulder, NV 9-26-14

New Car Coming to Area

I love it when a friend asks me to help them with their car. My first comment is always, “Do you want to ask someone who knows something about cars?” Anyway, this morning a couple of us are heading down to Henderson to meet a delivery truck coming in from North Carolina with a 1974 Challenger Resto-Mod that has a 440 Magnum, 4.11 locking rear end, and the Rallye package.The engine was built by Muscle Motors Racing out of Lansing, Michigan. Ever heard of them? It has all the records going back to the 1990’s.  3″ exhaust, and Hooker Headers. We are bugging out at 8 AM and meeting the guy between 9 AM and 10 AM and driving it back to good old St. George…….I love a good adventure involving classic cars. Bob and Becky Schara are the proud new owners. I will be photographing the whole process for their records.

This just in from Paul & Sara:

“Hey guys and gals, how’s this for a idea? Pine view 10 Tuesday Movie deal is $5 bucks for any Movie, and Dickey’s BBQ has a Tuesday $1 buck Pulled Pork sandwich, so we were thinking ( I know, here comes trouble ) about us getting together for the September 9th, 11:30 am “ The November Man” a spy thriller ( maybe a little bloody, but so is the pulled pork! ) the movie stars Pierce Brosnan. Then, after the Movie, we could all go over to get some “Ice tea” and a Pulled Pork at Dickey’s after the show. Lets meet at the lobby around 11 am? So walk the dog, change your Doctor appointment, whatever….. before 11 am, and pass this on to any other folks you can stand to sit next to f0r 2 hours…” Check out this trailer…..NO!
