Zinger Weather for the Weekend Car Shows

TODAY – Findlay Food Truck Friday – 11 AM – 1:30 PM Come on out for food, fumes & fun!

Yeh, oh yeh! Let’s get out and enjoy this weekend weather to the fullest no matter what your interest at the moment seems to be….we may not get a lot of cars out to the Cars & Coffee at Perks on Saturday since so many of us car guys & gals have entered the Ironman Contest……OK! OK! Stop the laughing. A true “Ironman” to me is a guy with a ’54 Chevy that overheats and he keeps nursing it to get to all the car events.

Also, don’t forget abo8ut the amazing Car Show in Page this weekend, Saturday afternoon & Saturday in Page, AZ presented by the Lake Powell Cruisers held on the grass in the middle of town…..Page apparently is not as obstinate about cars on the grass as good old St. George….just imagine a ginormous car show on the grass at Vernon Worthen Park….MMMMMMM!

Boulder City Rod Run Fri-Sat-Sun Be sure to check the car shows page on this site for the flyer with times and locations…..This Car Show is in Conjunction with the Boulder City Jamboree

Forgotten term of the day, “Things went haywire.”   –   I’ll bet if you ask anyone under 30 what that means they may tell you, “That’s when my Facebook account doesn’t work.”

Texas Attitude

One day, a very gentle Texas lady was driving across a high bridge in Austin.
As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixin’ to jump. 

(fixin’ in Texas means:  has the means or abilities to take action)

She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, “Please don’t jump!

Think of your dear mother and father.”

He replied, “My mom and dad are both dead; I’m going to jump.”

She said, “Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children.”

He replied, “I’m not married, and I don’t have any kids.”

She said, “Well, then you just remember the Alamo.”

He replied, “What’s the Alamo?”

She replied, “Well, bless your heart!!    You just go ahead and jump . . .
. . .  you little Yankee, Obama lovin’, Democrat bastard!  You’re holdin’ up traffic!!”

Weary or Wicked? No Rest Either Way! Car Shows Abound!

Beat the Heat! on Wednesday Morning at Ricardo’s!

With a projected 92 degree day on Wednesday, come on out early and join in the friendship & fun at Hot Rod Hangout casual Show & Shine, Cruise-In, and Car Show at Ricardo’s Mexican/American Restaurant located at 1112 South Bluff Street in St. George, Utah at about 9 AM before it has a chance to get a little warm. Even with the great weekly turnout it really is too bad not more try this out. Low, low key event with chow & chat for everyone. We think this is about the best parking lot in town for this type of Cruise-In. The breakfasts are inexpensive, and with the new management, everything is better and better.

Remember, FREE drinks with food order for Hangout…….Hangout Winter 930

The rainy Saturday ended up being less than appropriately attended for several well planned Collector Car Related events:

  • The Cruise to Kanab & Mt. Carmel Junction was a fun event, but the cruise planned by The Day Trippers never materialized, so a handful of the Red Rock Roadrunners cruise up for breakfast at the Thunderbird joined by some from the St. George area
  • We’re sure the organizers of the Cotton Days Car Show in Washington City were disappointed at the weather related turnout, but everyone there we spoke with had a great time

Forgotten term of the day, “It’s time to pack your grips.”

“Rebels With a Cause” Big & Better & More

A total of 42 “In & Out” cruisers took advantage of about the nicest afternoon/evening we have had this year in St. George at this monthly Show & Shine, Cruise-In, Car Show at Ricardo’s. We have never witnesses so many spectators, and we are sure the staff at Ricardo’s would agree with that…they were literally “jumping” to take care of everyone. I heard no negative comments about the food or service, and they were jammed. This is a combined effort by “Car Guys Care” & “DesertCruzin”   Rebels with a Cause 2nd Sat

The parking lot looked really cool filled with Corvettes (old & new), Camaros, Rat Rods, Mustangs (old & new), Sports Cars, Street Rods, “T” Buckets, Convertibles, and on and on and on, etc………..

Warbirds Ended Up BIG Show & Shine

Before getting into the article is a reminder to come on our for the “Rebels With a Cause” Cruise-In/Shiow & Shine at Ricardo’s 5 PM – 7:30 PM This afternoon

Verging on becoming another Car Show, the Fly-In/Drive-In at the Warbirds SGU Museum was a real nice event & we are pretty sure they made some good money for he Utah Honor Flight……Hundreds of people showed up. What began as just breakfast ended up with the organizers opening up the tarmac for all the Collector Cars with three rows being used…..Corvettes, Mustangs, Mopars, Cobras, and on and on and on. We had to throw in Carson’s 1962 SS from Food Truck Friday as well   ↓
