Hot Rods Invade Charles Town!

The streets of downtown Charles Town, WV were packed with more 250 Hot Rods and Classics for the 4th Annual Charles Town Car Show.  We had planned on bringing out the mini-truck for this show but lack of free time had us settling for a quick run up and down the streets to snap a few photos and chat with friends. Still, the show was very enjoyable if you stayed on the shady side of the street.


There was a very good collection of cars and trucks lining the main drag. Early morning showers probably kept the numbers a little low but what was there was spectacular. I always love to see customs on the street rather than in parking lots. For some reason, they just look better that way.



Historic Charles Town provided a great backdrop for all these cool rides. Maybe next year I will see you there with your hot rod as well! You can find a few more photos over in our photo gallery. Http://

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
