Sunday Morning sure came around quick, so Jennifer and I decided that we would go to a local show, some 9 miles away in Los Alomitos and a 15 minute drive from th house, something that is a rarity these days for us, so we jumped in my Ford and off we went to the Army base up the road.
C17 Troop carrier was grazing on the runway, this is a big plane but not as big as the C31 most people see these days. But got a lot of attention none the less.
Still an immense aircraft with a huge payload and more Horsepower then many Dragsters hooked together and more Primer color than a Battleship.
This has 4 Props and would cause more draught than the latest Hurricane that just hit Mexico this weekend.
A popular Haunt for everyone today as not many Civilians get a chance to walk around in one of these massive planes these days.

The Base had many cadets out today and a great atmosphere was felt on the runway today.
I would of liked to have seen this fire up as when they tilt the rotors for a dive, they scream like a Banshee!
The Pipers came out and did their thing, they were pretty good too.
I love Vintage Jeeps and rode in a Willys that came from the Normandy landings in WW2 and drove it up the Mall to take the salute past the Queen in 1995 and boy was it great to see these today.
The weather was perfect for this show and lots to see and do, I may take the bike club out this way next year as we had a ball walking around.
Bright Orange Turtle Deck T had a 6 Banger in it, an oddity for sure but always cool to see different things at this show.
Corvair with an Old Coddington styling.
This 1950 2 door Merc was crying out for a roof chop.
Bad Ass 55 Chevy Gasser was the best for me, such a tough machine and owned one back in the UK in 1996.

Clean 289 Mustang with unusual Factory color sat proudly amongst the newer stangs.
The good old Austin Healey 3000 Mk11 cars were a reminder of Brands Hatch for me.
Plenty of Tri-Chevys there today but have always liked them and had to take some photos.
I love 55 Bowties, I miss my old one so many cool memories stirred up for me at this show this weekend.

Four Winfield carbs and cool old school Bellmouths look Hungry like baby chicks.
1940 Dodge was actually really cool and looked so much like the Ford.
Model T tracker was cleaner than a cats arse.
Little 4 Banger power too.
A mixture of everything at the show and thats what makes it a fun event.
Model T had a Dago front end, thats all I liked as the rest kinda went down hill.
The license plate really says it all. And boy did this fifty five sit in the weeds too.
This 63 and a half was really tidy.
As I said, a mixture of everything at the show and this was a loud color with the ghost flames.
A smorgasbord of Classic tin all in one line and a good shot I thought.
Super clean 66 VW bug was a hit in my eyes, tastefully done and I would of driven this home for sure.
This Mint green Spudbaker was tidy and got many looks at the show.
This 1956 Belair was clean.

Plenty of Muscle here today and this Goat was by no means no exception.
This 2 door 1957 Ford had an awesome color scheme and a 427 wedged in the bay too.
Work truck 35 Ford was a Hit, using Vintage style Firestone tractor tires.
I will never get enough of planes and loved this.
They never fired it up when I was there and I wish they would of, they had my favorite the P51 sat next to her too.

We couldnt get in this and I understand why, but wanted to get and have a look at the dash, as I love the gauges, lucky for me I had a zoom lens.
Love that Dashboard set up.
All sorts here today and fun to be able to walk around.
