And yes that is ride height. Not my thing but well built and powered by a slant 6, something about it kept me sneaking a peek at it.

As far as I know this was a first time event. Over 100 rides showed up to this free car show held in the South parking lot of Salina's Central Mall next to JC Pennys. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina put the show on and with the exception of needing a bit more room for the photos to look good, but that's me being picky :).

My 1951 Ford Custom: Resurrection Part 2
Part 1 | Part 2
In the week since the last post about my 51 I've driven the 63 Galaxie 13 hours round trip to Springfield, MO for the Queen City Riot and I've done a small amount of work on the 51. To see more about the Queen City Riot show coverage see the gallery here or the blog posts Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
All that I got done on the 51 this week was installing a new fuel pump and verifying that it was in fact working. Installing the pump shouldn't have taken nearly as long as I took, but it's on now. Just a hint, if the engine is still in the car, it's easier to take off the pump and the housing that it's attached to than to remove the pump from that housing, unless you have a special 1/2" shorty wrench or super thin walled sockets. So after some cursing, some head scratching and using an old Cragar S/S wheel with tire as a platform to stand on, I got the pumps swapped out.

AutoFest Part 3
Maybe next year I can get everyone to shut their hoods during the awards so that I can get better photos...

AutoFest!2011 and 2012) this was the first time I'd taken my car. Some of my friends were competing in the BBQ contest so we all rolled into town on Friday. I did not take part in the poker run but I saw quite a few cars that did. All of the photos are in the gallery here if you want to see them all.
The cars started showing up early! This was about 7am.
