Steel is real!

I had been dreaming about a 40 Ford that was for sale on the NSRA web site and finally got motivated to put my Truck up for sale after much badgering and gentle persuasion from my wife and Pudzz and his wife.

The idea was, get £18k for my Truck buy the 40 and I would have change to get a nice Mick Shepherd interior,. Then I would finally have my much wanted pre 49 Hot Rod (Street Rod) and my Mrs would be happy as it would house the grand kids to any future rod everybody would be happy.

I reluctantly gave the Truck a clean Saturday Morning and made up some no expense spared for sale signs to put in the windows and waited for the buyers to come a flocking.

Today was cruise day so I also readied the truck for the run out. The Run set off before I could get the truck fully ponce'd up, so I had to set off later so I just put the Post code in the satnav and did the more direct route to save time as the above originals line also intended to do... We actually got there before quite a few of the earlier runners.

People chilling out listening to the band

The Drive out/Cruise venue was a water sports club with the magnificent water sport facilities, a live Rock band were doing their thing, the sun was blazing and we had a nice cuppa and soaked up the atmosphere it really was a fantastic laid back affair at a stunning venue.

Groovy 35 was a nice to follow back to camp. er only we lost sight of it once out of the cruise venue derrr

Things were buzzing back at mien camp!

We got lost on the way back after loosing sight of the 35 we followed out of the cruise venue..but after much ducking and diving to miss the massive traffic jam on the motorway we managed to latch onto the rear of Arron's Chevy truck to get back on the right track and lead us safely back to camp.

The ominous sky's start to build before an almighty downpour which was a spectacular break to the amazing hot sun we had been enjoying!

Followed by this stunning double rainbow.

Well back at camp we sat and sipped some aperitifs while we watched nature do its thing. Before our much anticipated free evening meal and the nights entertainment. the craic was good.

Another great night, some of it best left unsaid, but 99% of it was a blast and was one of the most entertaining nights at a rod run ever.... ;o)..

That's about all I can remember or am prepared to say really.;o)
