Taylor Main Street Car Show 

Taylor is a small town outside of Austin, best known for Louis Mueller BBQ voted top 5 in Texas many many times. Maybe also known for the Taylor Rattlesnake Roundup. This has to be seen to be appreciated. Other than that it's just a quaint little town. This past Saturday, they had their 5th annual Main Street Car Show and I decided to take Silverback out for the day. Normally in October it's not very cold here, but when I left it was 40 degrees. I actually had to put the T-Tops on and turn on the heater. I had never actually ran the heater so it's good to know it works.

As it turns out, this show is pretty popular and there were over 550 cars on hand according the announcer. A number of bands playing during the day and even an Elvis impersonator. Check out the group photo to see Elvis kneeling in front. BTW, I'm a bit behind him. Also, apparently Santa took some time off from toymaking to come to the show. Check the guy to right of Elvis.

A LOT of great cars and people at this show. As always, I got to talk cars with folks all day long and continued to learn a lot listening to people's projects. I spoke to a guy who was from Louisana and drove his 58 Chevrolet Belair all the way to the show. The interesting part was that he's 80 years old. I hope I'm still doing this when I'm 80.

A couple pics to highlight. The 56 Chevy was outstanding. The Green F100 Ford was amazing. Pic 14 is a 1915 Detroit Electric. An electric car made in 1915. They drove it in and right by me. It was pretty cool especially since the two older gentleman and ladies were dressed in period attire. The car was totally silent.

Oh yeah, not sure what Bobba Fett was doing there, but a good photo opp nonetheless.

A number of pics below.
