I believe that there were 9 cars from the 4 & 18 car club that went to the Spirit Lake Car Show.  Here are some pictures of the group.
General Discussion / Spirit Lake, Iowa - June 24, 2007

When we arrived at the car show there was a group of parking spots that were in the shade and perfect for our club, but this mean guy came out and told us we could not park there on a public street because his place of business was still open.  WTF, did the City Counsel forget to tell him that there was a car show that day?  We parked on the other side of the street and made sure we did not go into his place of business.  We will also tell everyone not to shop there.  We watched and he did not have any customers go in his store that afternoon.  And sure enough about 15 minutes after we parked across the street in the sun other cars pulled in and parked in front of his business.......
General Discussion / The Too Big Truck Story
« Last post by JKD on June 25, 2007, 10:47:12 AM »
We were hanging out at the parking garage across from the convention center before the "show" and there was a big pick-up truck that got up to almost the top of the parking garage and then couldn't get under the cement beams on the top to get back down.  The old car guys decided to help him, so they let air out of his tires, but the truck still wouldn't fit under the beams.  So all the guys piled in the truck to add weight and then it finally fit.  The only problem was with the top two or three beams, on the bottom four floors the truck fit perfectly.  I guess you can enter this parking garage with a big pick-up but you can never get turned around to leave.
General Discussion / Brick Deck Bridge

This bridge is one of the few or maybe the only brick deck bridge in the US.  It is next to old Route 66.  Oklahoma has received lots of rain this year....notice the raging river below the brick deck bridge.
General Discussion / Going Down Route 66 From Stroud to Tulsa

We went down Route 66 with our own private tour guide and these are a couple pictures from that tour.  We ate at Russ's Ribs which was the best BBQed meat I have ever eaten.  There is a town on old Route 66 named Depew, who knew there was a Depew, OK too.

This is a picture from the convention center during the "show".  We were not there the next day when the car was put into the car show.

General Discussion / Tulsarama - June 15th, 2007
« Last post by JKD on June 25, 2007, 10:25:04 AM »
We ventured to Oklahoma for the Tulsurama event where we watched the uncovering of the buried Belvadere June 15th.  The really strange part was that they actually dug the vault with the car in it up on Wednesday so the video was on the Internet the first night that we stayed in Stroud, OK.  There was still a plastic covering over the car in the video but the 3 - 4 foot of standing water shown in the vault pretty much told the story of what we would see at the ceremony.  I was disappointed that they had the video on the Internet before the actual event that we paid money to attend was held.

Since we were already in OK we used our tickets and watched the show at the convention center and walked around at the invitation only car show.  As it turned out this was not really the highlight of the trip though.  We got to meet many people who we had only met on the Internet and got to match up user names from message boards with actual people.  We also got to drive down Route 66 from Stroud to Tulsa with our own private tour guide.  By the time we got to Tulsa for the show and walked down to where the car had been buried the hole was already filled in with dirt so that was one part of the must see we missed. 

Pictures to follow.
