Three Studes out of over 900 cars were shown in Midnight at the Oasis last weekend in Yuma, AZ. They were a 39, a custom 55 Speedster, and a custom 57 Silver Hawk. Sorry, no pics. 50,000 spectators enjoyed mid 80's temperatures in lots of sunshine. Suntan lotion was being used by many of us.

Well we might have been there, but the "God's" of the 1 armed
bandits were calling to my "La Jefa" in Laughlin....I did get
to visit the Classic Car Museum at the Riverside Casino, that
are either loaned to the museum or own by Don Laughlin outright.
There is a 1964 Gold R2 Avanti (it's 4 sale) see the following
link: http://www.riversideresort.com/Html/Museum.asp a 1963
Red Avanti straight 289 and a nicely restored 1930 4 door Sedan
dark green, with black trim paint and roof....didn't have the
side mounted spares so not sure what the model was. But some
very nice cars on display....including the only 1983 Cadillac
produced 4 door sedan Coupe de Ville 4x4....was mounted on a
1983 Suburban frame! Also a Kurtis and a Muntz!!!!
gotta love 'em!

The show was a blast. I never did see the 57 Silver Hawk but did see one more Stude. A 41 Commander coupe. Tim, 41Frank, and I toured the show. A bunch of hot rod buddies from our breakfast group called the Dipicks were out in force. I have an entry blank and a room reserved for next year. Most of the clubs gather all the entry blanks and send them in an overnight envelope so they arrive the day entries are accepted. I understand it sells out in about 3 days. More than likely I will take the 53.
