2011 Rumble in Delano show coverage and pics! Part 2-3

Part 2!

We start part 2 with Don's beautiful Buick

And Mike's kool Dynamic 88, he is selling this 4 door version but also has a way kool 2 door model.

I'm a big big fan of Rocky's newest addition to his stable.

Some munchkin was rolling in style with this wagon.

This lil one is having all the fun.

Jeb brought his truck over, I need one just like it.

While he laid some lines on another

Cassie not only is half of the team that puts on the show but she brings her ride.

Jason of Red House Custom Paint in Derby brought his truck out.

Another H.A.M.B. er's ride sorry I didn't stop and meet the owner.

And another shot of Butch's alternate ride

Now I'm just messing around with some filters

Mongo51's well...51

The 40 is always fodder for some pics

H.A.M.B. proud

Johnny Hammond on hand to tell some stories and offer up some candy to the ladies.

Night falls a bit earlier in Sept. compared to June, but it gave the show a nice vibe.

That's it folks, see you at a show


2011 Rumble in Delano show coverage and pics! Part 1

Leading up to last weekend there were lots of murmurs about the new weekend for the Rumble in Delano in Wichita, KS, in it's 3rd year the show moved to late September from the middle of June. The first 2 years for the show were just plain hot, so it was a welcome change for that reason, however the new weekend falls on the same date as a long running show just 90 miles down the road. Due to some conflicts in my schedule I wasn't able to hit both shows so after stopping by a local German Car Club show in Salina I went to Wichita for the Rumble and I was not disappointed.

As soon as I hit the edge of the Delano District I see some familiar rides and owners, I'd stumbled right into the middle of the Mulvane Marauders as they were parking.

Fuddpucker using his "other" one digit gesture...

The Delano District is just to the west of the Arkansas River on Douglas Street in Wichita, a cool old business district where they block off the street for a few blocks and all of the hoodlums bring their rides out to hang out. The September date made the temps just perfect.

Yblock292 brought his 40 out to play, but as he is prone to say, he'll bring whichever car starts and has gas in it, there's not a bad car in his collection so it's all good Jack :)

I go to a lot of shows, and I just don't see many Comet wagons, I dig it.

I never did see the owner of this under construction ride, but it's a nice start!

Finkd brought out the Caddy... and told me I should buy it...Jeff, if I had the cash, it would already be in my garage. One of the most beautiful 57 Caddy's ever built in my opinion.

McPhail brought out his new project, very kool, just love the shape of this bodystyle.

Some more of the Marauders rides, such a wide variety in this club, and all very kool kats to hang with.

I keep forgetting to ask how many gallons it takes to prime 8 carbs...

Straykatkustoms brought up the Merc to join in the festivities.

Butch left is sick green 56 Chevy gasser at home to show of this beauty.

That's it for part 1, part 2 coming very soon.
