For Jack,  part of the fun of going to a car show is getting there.....  we pass so many cool places and Jack can sniff our a car in a field or behind a fence any day of the week.   Here are a few that we saw on our way to Syracuse this year.

1wherever we go Jack can sniff out a car in a field 2

You can barely see that 55 Chev near the tractor.


We came across this Ranchero, sort of  like Jacks, at a Ford dealership in Gennesee.  Jacks is different in that his is an XL  with a 390 and  is a really bright red.. 

5 heres a ranchero the same year as Jacks at a Ford dealer in Gennesee

   Of course, when we go to shows one of the things we like best is that we get to meet up with old friends who we might only see once a year.
