This year we made the March Good Guys show in Scottsdale AZ. Last year we had to cancel as I was working in San Diego. The weather was great with the temp in the 70's and low 80's. We had another trailer tire blow out on the way, in a bad location, on the 101 loop freeway in Scottsdale and the trailer lights plug in the back of the truck keep coming unplugged so it took 6 hours to get to West-world rather than 3. Arrived on Thursday, set the camper up and checked in then on Friday took the Kaiser into the show.
The first day I went down to the polo field area and park on the pavement in front of the vendor area.
This car, parked next to us, is from Wickenberg Az beautifully done with a great owner the was nice to visit.
Model "T" with a big block Ford engine stuffed under the hood.
On Saturday Karen helped set the car up in the Builders Choice area where the top 10 cars are picked from.
This 51 Ford took the top 10 and a Builders Choice award's. It is chopped and sectioned.
Big block Lincoln engine. The car is on of those you would call an over the top build.
This Chrysler Saratoga parked next to us also won one of the top 10 award, note the stitch work in the upholstery below.
How about a chopped Edsel station wagon.
Builders Choice award went to this dropped Lincoln convertible.
Karens Kaiser won the Wildcard award and on Sunday we parked in the winners circle area.
Karen tried to stay out of the sun as it was a in the 80,s on Sunday.
During the show the car backfired while starting it in the afternoon and bent the butterfly in the throttle body. I was able to straighten it some what but could not get the throttle to close properly so it was hard to drive with the fast idle but we got through it and got the car loaded up Sunday afternoon for the trip home on Monday.
This is the award Karens Kaiser won.
On Monday I unloaded the car and camper then went to Discount Tire in Kingman and had 4 new Goodyear tires, made in the USA, put on the trailer. A new butterfly for the throttle body has been ordered.
