Dream Machine Show

Spent last Sunday at the Pacific Coast Dream Machine Show. It is always the last Sunday in April, and it was a good time.

There was a W - I - D - E variety of machines present. Everything from Steam Engines to a Korean War vintage jet fighter. You could take a ride in an old Lockheed passenger plane or a biplane, watch a monster truck demo, ride in a monster truck fire engine, watch the Uni Drags (one wheeled motorcycle drag races - a real hoot!) or just wander around and look at all the cars, trucks and motorcycles. The interesting things included:

- 2 Blastolene cars (look it up on the internet)

- World Record Land Speed Record vehicles

- Several front engine dragsters

- All sorts of hot rods and customs

- RotoHak (another internet search)

- 7 Studebakers

- The Hell's Angels selling leather goods

- Mini Donuts made to order

- Japanese Zero/F6 Hellcat dogfights

- P-51s

- Russian prop fighters

- and 1 SMB.

We gave about 500 tours of the van and answered many questions and probably sold a couple of vans.

Next year, it would be nice to have several SMBs parked together. A combined get together and car/plane/whatever exhibit. A good time nearly guaranteed.

Mike

Re: Dream Machine Show

Maybe you could get the Hell's Angels to make some leather seatcovers for the SMB

Some Pictures:


Here we are

A friend's Nostalgia Top Fueler


Mildly modified VW van


57 T-Bird

Just a small sample of the show. You really need to be there to enjoy it all!

[s:1kyqm8d4]OK, I give up. It worked last time I posted pictures. What did I do wrong? Why do I have such a hard time posting pictures?[/s:1kyqm8d4]

Edited from the instructions below. But, I still don't understand. This should be as simple as machining metal.

Re: Dream Machine Show

Judging by the links from the gallery, I think you can just delete everything except the number, between the photo tags:



So, (photo)4859(/photo) except with square brackets.

Cheers!
Mike.
