Well, it’s still raining pretty much every day here in Northern California. I am sure anxious for some sunshine and for our Car Show season to begin.
I sure appreciated all the emails I received this past week with information on upcoming events. It is a huge help! If you are aware of any 2023 event dates, especially Cruise-Ins and Cars and Coffee events, please email any information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can enter it here: “Add Events”.
I was hoping to make it to the Salem Roadster Show this past weekend, but maybe next year? My new friend Jim Wylder shared a few photos that he took. It looks like they had a lot of fun!

Here are some cool photos of a 1955 Powell truck that belongs to Miles Chappell of Eagle Point. I saw one for the first time last July in Alturas, CA. Miles is an expert on these very rare and cool trucks.
