Just got home from Force’s Holiday Car Show. It grows in car count every year, as participants were parked in the surrounding lots of several other businesses, over years past. I’d have to say it was down a bit, crowd-wise, but all in all it was a great day. It started out overcast with a few scattered sprinkles around Orange County, but it didn’t affect the show the sun finally broke through by early afternoon, and it probably got to 70 degrees.
The line of autograph seekers extended all the way down the side and around the back of the building. It never seemed to end. Signers included Robert Hight, Mike Neff, Bernie Federly, Austin Coil, Laurie Force, sisters Brittany, Courtney, and Ashley Force, John, The Mongoo$e, and Chip Foose.
Two ladies brought glass quart milk bottles for John to sign and McEwen quipped, “Hey John, they want a sample from you. We’ve sold eveything else, we might as well sell our DNA.” Then Force got interviewed for a website and he told the gal, “Be sure to shop at Goose’s Prestige Hobbies. He’s got a lot of John Force stuff there.” McEwen said, “Yeah, we have lots of left-over Force stuff.”
Good show . . . good day . . . lots of toys donated for the California Highway Patrol’s CHiPS for Kids program. I’ll try to get some photos re-sized and post e’m from the office tomorrow for ‘ya.
Dino…Nice post on the track results. Just the other day I was wondering where I was on June 28, 1964. 😆
