Modesto Area Street Rod Association
2015 Grafitti Classic Car Show.
530 cars on a sunny Modesto day June 7th, 2015.
...To make a large car show Club members and their familes work behind the scene for months and months planning and organizing before the show begins. It takes a lot of team work...
...Organizing meetings... about 20 formal ones and maybe another 25 informal ones. You know things come up that you have to take care of ! ! ! Fixing equipment, trips to Costco, flat tires on the trailer, etc. Did I foget to mention getting sponsors, nice location, and trophies. Details like that !
...Everything stops at the homes of the members the week before the show. No time for the honey do list , we have a car show dear. No honey do list for the entrants either... they have a car to get ready for the big day., There are a lot of lawns that have to wait to be mowed until after the car show. Members are up working the car show at 5 a.m. ...
...The big day comes and the show starts... Entrants start showing up and the show begins. Ever see 500 cars looking for a parking space all at the same time !
...These two cars belong to MASRA members and are the cars shown on the poster and tee-shirts. They are the featured cars for the 2015 car show.
...Stanislaus County Shariff's Award Winner
...The story I heard about this car was it was found in a nearby barn or garage setting on blocks since maybe the Eisenhower administration. The buyer aired the tires, added a battery, fussed with the gas tank and carburator, then was able later to start the engine then drive it. It's all original everything ! ! !
The owner entered it in the car show to show everyone . "Barn finds" are still out there so maybe one near you too.
