"It's Cruising Time"

"It's Cruising Time" is the headline on the front page of our local newspaper today.

http://www.thetimesnews.com/news/cruising-36290-time-.html

HOT ROD POWER TOUR

To start our tour Dan's Chevelle wouldn't start after lunch just 5 miles from joining the tour at the Chattanooga stop. I went to the site ahead to find help and found that they have medics to fix any problem within reason. The truck that follows the caravan seems like they have all you need to repair anything, including welders. Dan got the car started himself and then the medics worked on it for 30 minutes to find the junction box on the fire wall was never tightened. Free labor. They… Continue

It had a red and white interior and could easily fit in six…

The story of the Lady

Terri Waddell attended South Cobb High School, class of 1985. After purchasing a 1969 Camaro, she painted it pink to match a feather she had. So thus, the Pink Lady was born. Back then, more people knew Terri as ‘Pinky’ and the car as ‘Spoiled Brat’. Terri had a lot of issues with the car, as you would expect. In 1987, I was born, and my mother, Terri, no longer had time to deal with a car she…
