Although I post images on my website of all the car shows I go to, sometimes I send extended coverage to Hot Rod Hot Line (link left). Go to their website, click on "Car Shows", under "Roving Reporters" click on "Leal Brothers" located under Midwest and check them out.
Check out my "RODDING" page for weekly coverage (weather permitting) of the Lowe's Friday Night Cruise in Pearland and the Niftee 50ees Saturday Night Cruise In in Spring.
Most of my show coverage is submitted to Hot Rod Hot Line (above) but every once in awhile, I attend a small show (a couple in this case) that I decide to post here on my website. I'm sure the small turnouts were mostly due to the inclement weather that has been around the Houston area for awhile now. Check out the images below taken at Saturday events in Galveston and Texas City.

I recently received an e-mail from Mecum Auctions announcing their upcoming Indianapolis auction where two of the most iconic Pro Stockers ever will be up on the auction block. Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins 1970 Camaro "Grumpy's Toy VIII" is up for sale with a sale prediction of $350,000-$450,000 while the 1971 Barracuda of the famed Sox and Martin Racing Team is predicted to sell for $850,000-$1,100,000.
*Just got the results from the Indianapolis Mecum Auction (above) and both Pro Stockers above did not sell; both were under the seller's reserve. The Bill Jenkins Camaro received a high bid of $285,000 and the Sox & Martin Barracuda received a $750,000 high bid.
Although I've been doing this for years and my son tags along sometimes, he's never taken any pictures; he just goes and enjoys the show. It was his birthday a week ago and his mother surprised him with a nice Canon camera. I decided to break him and his new camera in with something he likes. On our way to the Niftee 50ees Cruise In after the shows posted above, I stopped in at a local McLaren dealership and let him take a few shots. Nice start!
