South West Treasure ... Jack and Mary Ann took a trip to Texas to pick up a car they bought on the internet .... not a hot rod .... a daily driver made by a great American company... FORD. . The first big treat was when we finally had a chance to come face to face with none other than “Too Low” our long time roving reporter in Central Texas, Richard Haas. We have “known” Richard for many years and our readers have always loved his show pictures from Austin and beyond .... especially since Richard always has great captions for his photos. Richard treated us to a gourmet meal that could only be found in Texas .... the legendary Texas BBQ. And all we can say is AMAZING ... Rudy’s is a rather inconspicuous establishment, but the welcome to us as “rookies” was great and the BBQ was the best ever. If you’re in Austin, you’ll want to be sure to find Rudy’s for a real treat. Even without the excellent “company” of Richard Haas to go with your meal ..... you’ll still enjoy the BBQ. It was so good to see Richard .... the visit was too short but as with most in the car hobby, we were immediately old friends even though we had never met in person.
On the trip home, Jack had his old car nose radar on high alert and of course he found TREASURE on the road. It’s unbelievable how many car guys and car treasure you can find in small towns across America. And of course it’s all about the great guys who have all that treasure.... car people ... the best people in the world.
This was a great trip .... through an area Jack had not explored before ... now he’s thinking that Texas and New Mexico may rank up there with Montana as great hunting grounds for car guys. We can’t wait to explore this area of our country again. See you again .... on the road !
