Gatlinburg — Shades of Past

In the late seventies, I was president of the Creepers Car Club in Atlanta and had the opportunity to visit a car show in the scenic town of Gatlinburg ,TN.   Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, the venue was paradise for our club outing. The show was held on the streets of the resort town as well as the local hotels. Over the years, the town residents didn’t like the influx of Hot Rods and people so it was moved down the mountain to Pigeon Forge — where it is still being held. My memory of this event was the beautiful cars that showed up and the laid back atmosphere of the entire event. I moved to Chicago with my job and never returned to one of the best events I ever attended.

The event is now called Shades of the Past and is a well attended show with a give-a-way car by Alloway and the famous Top 25 Awards. In the early days, Deuces and Model 40’s were the big winners but I don’t know what the mix is today. Judging by some of the photos, it appears there are still some very nice Deuces at the show. I hope to return to the show before I move on as Jane loves the place. I met most of my Roaring Thirties friends at this show as they were regulars. Alloway has become a legend for his car building skills, capturing AMBR awards as well as many others. He was a body shop manager at a Ford dealer when I first met him. He was driving a beautiful Black model 40 three window that wowed the crowds.

I guess you could say, Gatlinburg was the start of my love of car shows that my family could enjoy as much as I did. Keeping your family involved in your hobby is very important to longevity of a marriage. And after 52 years, Jane still enjoys going to the many events we have in California. She is definitely a keeper and a seasoned attendee.

The Back Road Boys will be heading to the beautiful romantic city of Ojai this week for some good food and, of course, some delicious ice cream.

Stay Tooned!

Thanks to Joe Hurley for the Shades photos!

The Give-A-Way car was this beautiful Deuce roadster by Alloway’s shop.

A Doane Spencer looking hiboy really looks like a well built modern version of the famous roadster.

JHRS built Poteet’s sedan which always wows the crowds.

This famous roadster sure gets around lately.

I like these Fat Girls and they like me.

Deuces are always welcome at the Shades and they don’t disappoint anyone. The laid back windshield and wires a now the norm for Adams Hot Rods. I believe this a Brookville body rather than FG.

Four-door hiboy Deuces makes very nice rides for the whole family.

A dark blue sedan delivery real shined at the event. Sometimes I think I should remove the flames on Pepe.

Correct tail lights but needs the stock flattened bumper for easy access.

Note the later (56-62) fitted hardtop on this custom early Corvette.

Bob Oney built this show winner and it still looks pristine and is for sale.

This famous 33 tub was at the Ocean Ford this past weekend.

Alloway is building this 36 to be a contender for this year’s AMBR. I like the DuVall windshield on 36’s.

Deuces and Forties go together like apple pie and ice cream.

Custom Forties and Deuces also look good together.

Deuces and Corvettes also went together in my early days. Thanks for the photo Charlie.

Since Wavecrest is coming up, I have to include a 1940 Woodie Wagon to end my blog for today.

  2. Poker is een kaartspel wat in het casino, thuis of online gespeeld wordt. Hier leggen we je uit wat de spelregels zijn. Samen met de spelregels van poker geven we je nuttige informatie om als beginnende speler aan de slag te gaan. Bij poker gaat het er niet alleen om betere kaarten dan je tegenstanders te hebben, als je de andere spelers kunt overtuigen dat je de beste kaart hebt, is dat vaak ook voldoende. Short Deck Poker staat ook wel bekend onder de naam Six-Plus Hold’Em. Het is feitelijk een aangepaste versie van het welbekende Texas Hold’Em. Dit wil zeggen dat elke speler twee kaarten krijgt en er in drie fases in totaal vijf gemeenschappelijke kaarten op tafel komen (flop, turn, river). Met de dan in totaal zeven aanwezige kaarten moet elke speler de hoogte mogelijke combinatie maken om zo de andere gokkers te verslaan.
    De Belgische overheid heeft aangekondigd dat vanaf 1 juli 2023 de gokreclame sterk wordt beperkt. Reclame op voetbalshirts zal vanaf 2027 niet meer mogen. Ook online advertenties en reclame op social media zullen verdwijnen. Betaalde advertenties in Google zijn wel nog toegestaan. 11.3 Zelfuitsluiting: Als u een speelpauze wilt nemen, kunt u gebruikmaken van het recht om uzelf uit te sluiten van spelen op de Site door uzelf van deelname uit te sluiten via uw accountinstellingen. U kunt bijvoorbeeld kiezen voor een korte periode (1 dag, 7 dagen of 30 dagen). Voor een tijdelijke zelfuitsluiting van meer dan 30 dagen en minder dan 6 maanden, moet u contact opnemen met de klantenservice om een dergelijke uitsluiting te bewerkstelligen. Elke uitsluiting van langer dan 6 maanden die wordt aangevraagd, zou een permanente sluiting van uw account inhouden. Ook kunt u uzelf voor bepaalde of onbepaalde tijd uitsluiten van individuele kansspelproducten.

  4. Completing the CAPTCHA proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property. USCBP previously suggested that officers would not ask every traveler whether they previously used marijuana, after it became legal in Canada.  However, there have already been several incidents involving Canadians being randomly asked about their prior marijuana use. The following content is provided for general information purposes only and does not constitute legal advice.Cannabis is now legal in Canada. On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act and a number of supporting regulations and ministerial orders came into force, legalizing and strictly regulating the sale, possession and production of cannabis in Canada. When you are travelling within Canada, it is your responsibility to learn the laws of the province or territory you are going to. If you use cannabis, follow the laws in that jurisdiction.

  5. Though Buffett rarely wrote about real estate, I’m going to take a stab at translating Buffett’s wisdom for BiggerPockets’ readers. This is one of several of what I hope to be a series of articles channeling his wisdom into the real estate arena. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS), a company of which Warren Buffett is the main shareholder, chairman of the board and executive director, will be the gateway to the national real estate. Translation to RE: Knowledge is power in real estate and you have to collect it constantly about your market. Once you find a property you like you must know how to properly analyze to determine cash flow, debt service and continuing to improve the property over time. Also, you have to know how to refinance and when and how to exit the transaction to determine when and where to purchase.
    The Sheriff’s Office does not have specific information about the condition of the property or other pertinent information (i.e. how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, is it lake property, etc.).  Any questions about the property should be directed to the attorney’s office handling the sale. All auctions on this site are foreclosures and judicial sales. It is our goal to change the way a property goes through the foreclosure process. We have sold hundreds of judicial sales and have refined the process to: FHA Single Family Real Estate Owned Properties. This site is for the U.S, Department of Housing and Urban Development and includes real estate owned properties. These single family homes land on the site when the Federal Housing Administration pays a claim to a bank or other lending institution on a foreclosed property that was originally financed with an FHA insured mortgage.

  6. Anger. Some people (especially men with a history of being angry and or violent) can become very aroused, snappy and even aggressive when they stop using cannabis. Make sure those around you know you’re trying to stop and that you may have a tendency to be a bit snappy or irritable in the short term. If this places other people at risk (especially children) then make sure you gets some professional help (and maybe some medication to calm you down) or ensure that that those people are not around. Just as dealing with other addiction, marijuana addiction is curable. You will find help in the Stop Centres! I got stoned to enjoy life, I got stoned to avoid life. It was taking more and more pot to get high, when I got high at all. Paranoia crept in. Always shy, I felt even more uncomfortable with strangers, partly from self-consciousness but mostly from the stupor enshrouding me. It was time to quit, but I couldn’t do it.
    Financing any small business is a headache, but acquiring funding for a medical marijuana dispensary can be even more of a challenge. Medical — and recreational — marijuana is legalized in states across the nation, but it is still illegal under federal law. These laws make it more difficult for owners of medical marijuana dispensaries to apply for loans, open merchant accounts, or receive other types of financing to cover operating expenses or to scale their businesses. Maps Credit Union is one of the longest-serving financial institutions working with the cannabis industry. It has taken in more than $1.79 billion in cash deposits from the sector in Oregon since January 2017 but that has entailed filing tens of thousands of reports required under financial crimes watchdog FinCEN’s guidance for cannabis banking.
