A cool but dry Halloween morning at Katie's. The antique vehicles were out in big numbers!

Bob,
Any more shots of the Land Rover?

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Do you remember if the second one (with the canvas shell) was L or R hand drive?

Katie's, 11/7/15

It rained off and on this morning, so attendance was less than usual, but there was still a good collection of interesting vehicles.

Katie's 11/14/15

What a great morning in Great Falls, VA! It was cool and overcast, but we had a good amount of new-to-us cars, as well as a small bunch of Ferraris.

That's a Lincoln Zephyr-based hot rod, running a flat-12 with three carbs. This car was just finished. The last pic is of the mechanic, crawling into the trunk, to hydraulically drop the car. The switches inside the cabin were not yet working. They had a separate button to retract the rear license plate first, so the plate didn't get crumpled when the car dropped.

Katie's, 11/21/15

A cold morning at Katie's still brings out lots of people, and as long as it's not raining or snowing (and it wasn't), the turnout of amazing vehicles is still very good. Several Ferraris there this morning...

I took the elements into account - it was an indicated 33F when I left home - and put some 'weather equipment' on my Caterham. It turns out that, with the doors on but no top, the 20-minute drive to Katie's was NOT BAD!

Katie's, 11/28/15 - "Barn Find"

The temperature early this morning was mid-forties! Great for the end of November in Northern VA.

A great story today - I'll try to get my facts straight. The 'founder' of this event, Bob Morris, has a neighbor. This woman, Polly, who is now in her eighties, bought an MG-TC new in 1957. The car has sat, unused in a barn on her property since the late 1970's. Bob pulled the car out, and sent it out to be restored for her. It was completed this week, and Bob M arranged for Polly to come up and see the car, restored, for the first time. Here are some pictures of her re-introduction to her car. This was great to see! We got some pictures of Polly, with Bob M, and Polly's daughter, posing with the MG.

Not exactly a barn find, but it WAS in a barn!

A cold morning, but a good crowd at Katie's anyway. Here are some new ones to us. It's still amazing how we have cars showing up that we have not seen before.

More from today...

We had two Lincoln Zephyrs there today, one an amazing custom, the other original. Of course, we had a Christmas tree!

You're welcome! I was lucky on that shot - I saw the mini-fire truck as I was driving out, and was able to stop, grab my camera, and make a couple of quick shots. Very interesting vehicle...

It's a ton of fun. It's a RHD 1991 Subaru fire truck from Japan with only 7k kilometers. Everything is completely functional.

The kids love it.

Katie's, 12/19/15

I was out of town on 12/12/15, so it was nice to get back to see what's happening at Katie's. A cold but clear morning, less than a week before Christmas - a really great turnout!

The Carrera GT was brought by Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. The gray Corvette is a Callaway Z06.
