Photos from World of Wheels Car Show in Pittsburgh

The crowds lined up for the 54th Annual World of Wheels, held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and we were there to record the action for you. The $16 general admission fee gave you access to hundreds of cars, trucks, and motorcycles plus a few celebrities as a bonus.

We always make a beeline to high budget show vehicles when we arrive at one of these shows. This is the best way for you to be able to see all the details of these remarkable machines before you are elbowed out by the crowds. Sean and Louanne Ripp's 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback was one of those remarkable vehicles.

Chevy lovers also had some nice looking rides to gawk at like Andre Stephens' 1970 Chevy Chevelle and Ronson and Teri Burton's 1963 Chevy Nova SS Convertible.

You could find many trucks on the show floor but none more stunning than Jason Jones' 1973 Ford F-100 from On The Ground Designs known as "The Boss."

Stock classics are always a treat. We chatted with John Thornton about his gorgeous restored 1958 Olds Super 88.

Do you love quirky details? A stroll through the show floor would produce all manner of hood ornaments, signs, and props. Many of them are PG-13 but done in fun.




Gene Winfield was on-hand at the World of Wheels once again building a couple of hot rods and selling collectibles. The vehicles being built were a 1948 Chevy and a 1932 Ford.

You could watch the artists of High Scrollers Charity Auction create fantastic pinstriped items to raise money for the Autism Society.




If you like motorcycles you wouldn't have been disappointed with the bikes on display. Our favorite ride had to be Mark Giles' 1940 Harley Davidson Knucklehead.

How about a little Fast and Furious action? Five cars from the series were available for photos including probably the best known, 1970 Dodge Charger driven by "Dominic Toretto" (Vin Diesel).

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.
