"Parking Lot" Car Show....

One of the cool things about the Blanket Run is that is all you did was show up @ GodSpeed Rides before the Run began, you would still see a really cool "car show". Lots of participants drive their rides in the Run. This "modified" Crosley ran in the run last year. However, it was snowing last year, and the owner never opened the hood. Imagine my surprise when I saw that the "stretched", open-wheeled Crosley had a Buick straight-8 under the hood! Very Kool!!!!

The Crosley comes up from Lexington, Kentucky each year.

As the sun rose in the cold, eastern Indiana sky, drivers received their maps, instructions, (and some glazed donuts & coffee) from Thom inside his garage.

Participants continued to arrive past the scheduled 8:30 am departure time.
