Hi All
The 17th Annual Greater Tennessee Valley Antique Car and Motorcycle Show at the Delphi/Saginaw plant in Decatur, Alabama.  I’ve heard many guys on the HAMB refer to this as the South’s best kept secret.  Seeing is believing!  This show was huge despite threatening weather and an eventual down pour. Elvis entertained everyone until 12:00 and then between give-aways all afternoon. The door prizes were outstanding including a GM crate motor and a complete and running street rod.  I’d tell you where and when next years show is............. but then that would kill my chances at the car next year.  Enjoy.....  Butch!!!

This wicked looking ride was finished the night before the show.

We never figured out what the headlights came off of, but I recognized that Maxima skylite in the roof right off the bat.

The world famous Lo Linc from the Alan Jackson video Crazy About a Mercury.  Custom King Joe Bailon was rumored to be riding shotgun.

Is that a motor or a ride at 6 Flags? (Just Kidding!)

Looks like a street rod version of M&Ms.

When asked if he had air ride on it, he just laughed
and said ‘Nope, what you see is what you get’.
It rides this low all the time.
