Last year Scott S. stumbled into the First Oak Hill
Neighborhood Association's Cruise and Blues festival and took his
jeep. This year was different in that we had four members attend the
Second Annual event and the location had moved to a larger venue.
Arriving mid-morning, John K brought in his '45 MB and found a good
spot. About noonish, Danny K driving his '70 M151A2 and M416 trailer
along with Scott S driving his '53 M38A1 arrived and located a good
spot. A bit later in the afternoon, Herb T drove his '44 GPW over
and parked with Danny.
The event had a large number of tents setup that had arts & crafts
for sale, a large contingent of politicians, the Rotary club, many
different food vendors and food vendors. The church doubled as the
big-screen tv room for the annual Red River Shootout between the
University of Texas and the Oklahoma Sooners.
In the back area was the car show. The entry fee was minimal at
$10 for such a good time. Having grown considerably since last year,
there were a tremendous number of car clubs. The Chevy Impala's
appeared to be the best represented. There were street rods, custom
rods, quarter-mile cars, motorcycles and pick-up trucks.
About 4pm the judging was over and around 5pm the awards were given
out. Sad to say, none of the Lonestar-MVPA members received any
hardware this time, but we all had a grand time answering questions about
the vehicles and the club.
Around 6:30pm or so, Danny and Herb took off. Scott stayed to
help John hook-up his trailer that had been blocked in by an inconsiderate
person. Once hooked up, John and Scott then headed over to the local
Saturday Night Car Show at the "Y" in Oak Hill.
