On the left are car show posters of two upcoming Houston area car shows and both involve "Toy Drives". This coming weekend (December 4) the gathering will be in Pasadena and the following weekend (December 11) they'll be in Rosenberg. We plan on covering them both; toys in hand!

Just came across a new (to me!) Tee-Shirt Shop on Facebook and they have some pretty nice designs. I've posted some of my favorites below and these are just a few they offer. They all come in black and depending on the design, some are available in grey or white. They have sizes for just about everyone ranging from extra small (XS) to 5XL. More times than not, when I've ordered t-shirts from Facebook sites, they tend to run a little small so I suggest ordering just one to see how it fits. They offer t-shirts, hoodies, bottoms and sweat shirts. They currently have a special; buy 2, get 15% off plus free shipping; buy 3, get 20% off. If you like any of the designs I've posted, go check them out at CARKINGTEE.COM.

The two Pro Street vehicles above were just posted "For Sale" on a Facebook Pro Street Group Page. The images above were all taken by us; the 1978 Chevy Caprice was taken in 2019 at Ocean City, Maryland and the 1956 Chevy Pickup was taken a little over a month ago at a car show in League City, Texas. The Caprice is out of Maryland and features a 350 SBC topped with a B&M Blower backed by a Turbo 350 Transmission. It was featured in Super Chevy Magazine. Selling price is $35,000. The pickup is based here in Houston and is powered by a B&M blown 468 BBC with a Turbo 400 trans. Owner is asking $27,000.

I had posted a while back that the Facebook Group "The Pro Street Era" had decided to use one of our images as their Facebook Group Profile Picture. It was a Pro Street 1958 Chevy that we took at the Niftee 50ees "Monster" Halloween show up in the Woodlands just north of Houston. Soon after they changed it but a week later they used another one of ours; a Pro Street 1957 Chevy that we took in Ocean City, Maryland back in 2019 (left).

I recorded a racing program on MavTV called Speed Sport. It featured the Inaugural American Speed Festival held at the M1 Concourse track in Pontiac, Michigan and many nostalgic racing vehicles from different types of motorsports were allowed to take laps. Seeing these vehicles in museums is great but to see them on the track must have been really special. I saw the Hudson Hornet that was a force in early NASCAR and was made popular in the Pixar movie "CARS" and one of the STP Turbine Indy cars. One car that caught my attention and one that I had never seen before was an Indy Car called the "Vel's Parnelli Jones VPJ1" (left). I know front and rear wings provide down force but I had never seen them at that angle.

The Mecum Auction from Kansas City is scheduled for this weekend with coverage on NBC-SN. I had already posted a few of my favorites (above) and I just rechecked the docket for new entries and came across the handful below. Needless to say I'll be watching the telecast for results on these posted vehicles.

Here are two images I posted on two different Facebook Groups; "ALAMO DRAGWAY SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS" (left) and "Rear Engine Top Fuel Dragsters" (right). The John Force "Mountain Dew" Funny Car was of course taken at Alamo Dragway and was posted   back   on   July  2.  I

received a message from someone who is writing a book about the AHRA (American Hot Rod Association) that sanctioned Alamo Dragway back when I frequented the track and they wanted my permission to use the photo in the book with photographer credit. NO PROBLEM! Now the "Dago Red" Dragster photo was taken in Atlanta, I posted it on October 10 and the Facebook Group used it as their current Profile Picture. I'm of course honored but I hate that photo; not the picture itself but the way it came out. Sometimes I attempt to "improve" the final image and this time around, I struck out. It's too grainy and the color is off but I guess they were okay with it since they used it and for that, I thank them.

Here's the latest group of my old images that I posted on several Facebook Group pages.
