Final Post from Cornith UMC

Had a chance to spend some time talkin' with the owner of this cool little rod. REALLY cool story behind the car. Seems the owners grandfather bought the car before his father turned 16. It was going to be a father/son project. Well, the project never happened and years down the road, the current owner inherited the car from his father. It was a "barn find" when he got it, He's done all the work to it to get it to it's present state. In honor of the car's history, he had named it "Hammy Down".
Remember the "Twisted Wrenches" Plymouth with the new paint job I mentioned the other day? Here is another picture of the car to remind you.
Well the group decided to do a little flame-throwing. The only problem was that they had the rear of their cars FACING the wind. The wind was pretty gusty and the end result was a new paint job that bubbled and popped like a marshmellow in a campfire.
That's it for the Corinth UMC show. Tomorrow I'll start a HUGE set of photographs taken at this year's Hunnert Car Pileup. This year's event was in a new location in Decatur, IL. and it was AWESOME! Come back tomorrow, you won't want to miss a day of these photographs!
