Emerald Coast Cruisin'

This was quite the impressive event.  Over 3000 classic cars and rat-rods were in town last week.  Our dear friend, Donn gave us VIP Tickets for this event.  Free entry and preferred parking.

We strolled around the event on Friday afternoon and looked at cars.  These pictures were taken then.  When we headed back on Saturday, we were alarmed to see Back Beach Road literally STOPPED with cars waiting to pull in.  We blew it off.  At 10 bucks per person per day, and 3 dollar parking per car, they made a BUNDLE.  Thanks again, Donn.... you saved us money, honey!

Saturday night, we strolled over to Pineapple Willy's  via Coyote Ugly Saloon and Dee's Hangout.  They were hosting the FIRE SHOOTING CONTEST.  Unfortunately, my camera batteries died, but it was alot of fun...

Two things about this posting... 1) are these cars really antiques? What does that make me? I used to drive these things!!! 2) In Colombia they take very good care of their cars because it is an expensive - horribly so - purchase. Many of the peasants have cars 'willed' to them and they are experts at maintaining old ones!

Glad you had such a good time!
