Deuce Days – Victoria 2016

26 07 2016

Last weekend was the Deuce Days here. It happens every few years but I heard this one may be the last. I hope not! It’s a great show, and people come with their cars from all over, like Australia. No kidding – Australia!!!

It’s mostly ’32 Fords but there are lots of other cars, too. They take over the town for a few days and then they’re gone…

EPISODE III – CLICK PHOTO TO VIEW

Episode III – The Rock & Roll for Little Souls Car Show is live on ShawTV and YouTube. It started years ago as a dance, and morphed into a car show, just like me – except I started as a jeweler and morphed into a car show host! We shot this one in less than 2 hours before the show opened. It features a wide variety of vehicles old and modern, all for the benefit of children in need of medical care. The next episode is on the planning stages, and will feature……

Corvettes

Kudos again to Shaw for their support and fine work in production.





Volksfest 2016

15 07 2016

Last weekend was the annual Volksfest here in Vintage*ville. I wandered around and had a great time seeing all the wonderful old VW’s. Some were pristine, others looked like they were washed with comet a few times too many, but even the old and worn had something special. How cool that a beat up old VW can have cachet!

Store Closing Sale

13 07 2016

For those of you here in Victoria, or as we like to call it, Vintage*ville (the * stands for whatever you want it to), I beg to draw your attention to the great store closing sale – mine! Yes, I am closing my custom jewellery shop and moving on to the next phase, which I fully intend to have filled with Vintage Cars and more. There is always more… so we hope.

So if you haven’t been by, please do drop in soon, because there’s not much time left to get a screaming bargain on whatever jewellery I have left. It’s all half price, by the way. I’ll still be here on the web and producing more Vintage Car TV shows. The next one is going to feature that great icon of American muscle: The Corvette.
