On Saturday July 27 we had 6 Gassers at the Rock Chevrolet Car Cruz in Grayslake IL.
Ted Beech brought his beautiful ’37 Red/White/Blue Uncle Sam Chevy.Ted also brought his ’58 Belair gasser.
Bill Wamboldt had his outstanding Black & silver ’55 Chevy gasser. Brian Blasey brought the ’40 Chevy coupe “The Little Engine That Could”, and the Airoso Brothers Blue ’41 Willys coupe and the Red ’41 Honkin Willys coupe rounded out the group.
The day started off with a pass through the service drive.Boy that floor is slick and for some reason all the gassers had their tires spinning much to the applause of the crowd and the service writers!
Mark Hagen did another spectacular job with the show. We had front “Rock Star” parking and he had over 200 show cars at the event.
The big talk at the show was the weather.After racing 2 events last weekend in the hot humid weather in Cedar Falls Iowa and the Meltdown drags in Bryon IL, the temps in the high 50’s amd low 60’s were welcome.
I am sure glad the Kansas guys weren’t there.If they had been there,they would have been wearing parkas!
We passed out a bunch of Hero cards and took lots of pictures of people sitting in the race cars.
The new owners of Rock Chevy were very pleased with the turnout.
Thanks to them and the entire staff at Rock Chevy for a great show!
