This was taken at one of the gas stops (which were pretty frequent since the blue 1930 Model A in the background only has a 10 gallon tank) between Cincinnati, OH and Nashville, TN. This was taken near Mammoth Caves in Kentucky. I forget the name of the town but there are fiberglass dinosaurs visible from the highway so it's pretty easy to spot.

Here's a mild custom 1974 Gremlin. One of just a handful of AMC vehicles. This was taken during the Nashville, TN stop.

Here's a picture of one of the indoor gardens in the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville.

Here's what Wal-Mart looks like with well over a 1,000 (mostly) hot rods in the parking lot. This was taken at the driver's meeting in Nashville. From what I understand (I wasn't at all of the driver's meetings), this was the only stop where we didn't have police assistance getting on the road. Needless to say, it took a long time to empty the parking lot (I'm told over 4 hours).

Here's another shot at the same driver's meeting.

How's a jet powered S-10 sound?

Here's an under hood shot of the S-10. The jet engine is from a Bell helicopter. It makes about 250hp @ 50,000 rpm and gets 8 mpg.

I've always liked trikes. Even better is when you combine a trike with a late 50's/early 60's car.

Here I am pulling into the Memphis, TN stop. There was about a three mile backup when I pulled in.
