The Shotrod hit the news

Along with a '64 Mustang that was also not perfect. The man said he's had it for 51 yrs and few booboos and repairs. Pretty green paint but no sanding or anything. Could see the weld beads etc but loved that the guy was there with it even if i am not a stang fan. Not sure if the super bird was at the show yet but the lambo i think was and several others usually presented on news stories they chose ours to show and talk about the 4th of July car show and other events on the water front.

So far it must be my year or the roosters as it was on 2 different news 2 different reports and just a scan over at the car show yesterday (the 8th). That never happens when there are new stangs etc and much nicer cars at a show!!

Here's a pic of the green stang and shotrod plus a nice silver '64 i tried to chase down a couple months ago but the light turned red and stayed that way FOREVER and he got away. They found me at the water front show and said they were coming to this one here. Also Elvis, not thee Elvis came by to say hi. He is a '64 galaxie freak also and the silver gal was his first paint job. The owner has had it 18 yrs since right out of highschool like i have mine. Elvis is a auto paint guy. One of his Gals was the black one in the photo which he just told me is now in CA for sale and is purple and other crazy stuff done to it.

This is the best video. Just showing the roosters and then the word poultry on the quarter panel. So many ask why the roosters and don't put the two together lol The sliver '64 was in front of my car side ways but must of left before they did this.

This vid was sent to me by Larry in the video. Not sure if they got it from the news guy or what so it's raw. Still shocking to me when all those other nicer cars were there even if it was early. The other news channel showed them later one as i had decorations for the 4th on there in that one and they still chose our 2 beaters.

Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

Not sure what you saw last but it's not red and will see if i get bored with the yellow. For now it's staying like it is here. I just grabbed the 1st pic i found. It's from the website of a show i do near eugene, or.

Is that Gary riding shotgun in the shotrod, holding on for dear life?

Re: The Shotrod hit the news

No putt, i don't know who those people are back there and the guy in front is my dad's annoying neighbor that thinks he has to ride home with me every year and i'm working on a way to ditch him next year so i can drive home alone.

I don't even know who took the pic it was on the function4junction website or FB page
