Had a similar weekend to LuvRam13 at Cruise-a-Palooza I have done this show since it started as a "vendor" with a ski boat attached to my Sonoma. I was asked by one of the organizers if I was bringing the SSR - I had intended to, but it was nice being asked. This show has no restrictions - their slogan is "if you love it, bring it"

Cars/trucks came from Washington, California, Utah, Ontario. I registered at 6:00 AM Saturday, and was #454 - great omen for a Chevy guy with serial # 567. Total was over 600, with an estimated 200 cars that came for the ride, and didn't register to show their cars. Every spot for a 2 mile stretch of beach was taken, and some of the best iron was parked at the many motels along the strip.

About the only sore point was the RCMP providing a $300 tag to anyone doing a burnout on the strip - but to be fair, they had a major concern about pedestrian safety. Most of the fines were paid from crowd donations before they were done writing the tickets.

The SSR got unbelievable attention - for most it was their first experience seeing one, and the most consistent question is still "did you build it?

The reaction from the rod crowd was really gratifying - I've attached shots of the SSR with a purple 49 from Washinton, local red 49, and a ground dragging 50 from Utah - all 3 asked If they could take a picture with the SSR.

The shot of my display area was taken early, but still busy - otherwise a clear shot was impossible. All the others were taken Sunday afternoon, which was really a wind down day - most of the participants were headed out early.

For you Prowler fans - thought this one was worth a shot.

Sorry guys - these photos were medium res (about 800 K), but the system will only accept 200 K files) - I'll try to get my technowienie mind to figure out how to decrease file sizes, and re-submit the photos - if anyone can give me an idea how to do it, advice will be welcomed.

Went to a local cruise last night and just happen to have an oldie park next to me. The SSR got the attention and also a lot of fingerprints. Never been to a cruise that had so many that just had to touch it.

Photo size

What photo program are you using. There should be a tab to click on to adjust the image size.

I'm using Picture Easy that came with my Kodak Digital Camera about 10 years ago. If I e-mail directly from Picture Easy then save the picture from the e-mail it comes out smaller than if I save it to my desktop from Picture Easy and post it from there. Does that make sense?

Great Day

Congrats on your great day.

It is a remarkable feeling when the people that love and cherish such classics show our SSR's respect.

I felt bad about the the people that got irratated with the attention my SSR was getting. Not all reacted that way. True Car lovers can love the clasics and welcome a new kid into the SS club.
