Photos from the 10th Annual Jalopyrama Hot Rod Show in Annapolis, Maryland

When a show advertises only 1962 and older American Hot Rods, Customs, and Vintage Race cars will be allowed on the show field you just know this show is going to be special. Jalopyrama was crammed into the Annapolis Maryland National Guard Armory and what this show may of lacked in size it more than made up for in style.

Inside the Armory was an odd mix of vintage steel. All the vehicles under the roof were by invitation only.

A fantastic 1951 Woody Wagon was included in the mix.

There were a few vintage race cars inside including the San Giovanni Family's 1944 Lakester/Belly Tank racer, "Ron's Hobby Shop Special". It is powered by a 258ci Flathead Ford and recently went 172 mph.

Outside it was looking like rain but luckily it stayed away while we were at the show. It gave everyone the chance to check out the details that make these hot rods so great.

From the crazy department comes Greg Bastien's 1960 Cadillac Sedan DeVille powered by a 5.9L Cummins Turbo diesel with an Eaton M90 Supercharger. Since we still have our 1963 Cadillac hearse waiting in Bubba's Garage for her 468ci w/ BDS 8-71 blower we were very interested in his setup.

So I am still shopping for a new ride and I think I want a wagon. I am not sure what type of wagon but there were a few at Jalopyrama to look at. I kind of liked Rob Bohuslav's 1961 Plymouth Suburban Wagon. Peg says we can only get a wagon if it has two doors.  Figures, that will make it more expensive.

The 10th Annual Jalopyrama in Annapolis, Maryland definitely had that classic hot rod show feel about it. Be sure to check it out next year and if you went this year tell us what you thought about it.

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.
