Photoblogging Barrett-Jackson 2017

God I hate crowds, and even though cold and rain kept yesterday’s attendance down, it was still too crowded for me: this huge collector car auction (is it the hugest?) is like Disneyland for geezers.

I drove this year, chauffeuring my friends Chip and Ed, along with Ed’s visiting sister […]

Another Car Show Photoblog

Last Saturday I rode the motorcycle over to the Gregory School for the annual Tucson Classics Car Show. I go every year, making sure to get there before the day heats up and the crowds descend.

The Gregory School is one of Tucson’s prettiest campuses, a pleasant venue for an outdoor car show. It […]

Barrett-Jackson 2016 Photoblog

Yesterday I drove to Scottsdale with three friends (Ed, Chip, and Loren) for the annual Barrett-Jackson auto auction. My friend Dick Herman, who lives near Sacramento, California, was also there. We set up a rendezvous by the food stands and spent about an hour together, making plans for future visits back & forth. In […]

This first photo, taken […]

As you […]

A Day with the Car Nuts

Wednesday I passed my annual tour guide recertification at the air museum. An evaluator watched over my performance in front of a group of visitors and I somehow managed to squeak by. To celebrate, I spent Thursday in Scottsdale, Arizona. What’s in Scottsdale? The Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction, of course.

Part of the midway, […]

Another Sunday, Another Car Show

A friend and I rode our motorcycles down to Tubac yesterday for the annual Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts Collector Car Show. As it does every year, the Tubac Golf Resort opens up its grounds for the show. If you ride down on a motorcycle you get to park on the grass right next to […]
