  • Branson Orphan car show 2011

    My brother, my wife and I got back from Branson, MO yesterday evening. The Orphan Car Show sponsored by the Ozark Trails chapter was a great success. Lots of interesting cars and good folks as usual. I will post some pictures as soon as I can.

    Here are a few pictures from the Orphan Car Show. There were a lot of nice cars/trucks at the show.
    We went to dinner with Alan and Rosemary Olas, Elizabeth and Frank van Doorn, and Jocelyn and John Coskey, not sure about the spelling of their last name, but we had fun with all of them. We went to Moon River Grille and I believe everyone had a good time, till the tickets came to pay the bill! What a mess!
    We prefer the other location, Area 57 to this one. There were people to look at the cars, and the hospitality room was more convenient, and no matter where you were parked and where you were sitting you could see all the cars. There were also more places to eat within walking distance and more choices to do things.
    At this years location, you had to set in the doorway to the motel rooms, and chase the shade. And if you pulled your car on a trailer, you had to leave the trailer in a field of weeds behind the indoor pool. If it had rained, it might have been a problem to get out.
    Other than that, the show was great. The people were great. It was just location, location, location.

      We also enjoyed being a part of the Branson show and renewing friendships and making new ones. I have to agree with Dusty that a better venue should be looked at for the next one. It was hard for people to know we were in that motel parking lot, as it was difficult to make the signage visible enough to passers by. The dinner with the aforementioned three couples was very enjoyable at Andy Williams's Moon River restaurant except the billing errors by the wait staff. Thanks Alan for organizing it. Nice turn out of orphans. Several Kaisers, including a Darrin, a pre Chrysler era Jeep forward control pickup and wagon and a 53? Willys. A Rambler Ambassador, Pontiacs,Corvairs, Barracuda,Hudson and of course a large assortment of Studebakers. Several Forum dudes were present including Charlie d, 52fan and brother Joe, Dusty Taylor and son Brian, Carl and Betty Purdy, Larry Love aka newbie, Dick Clemens,myself and some others that are known to frequent the Forum, but whose names escape me. WE won two tickets as a door price to the Bill Medling show, the surviving Righteous Brother, who did a knock out show along with his daughter at the "Starlight" theater that we enjoyed. It even has a '56 two door sedan Commander on display in the atrium. We enjoyed a show at "Pierce Arrow" last night.

      Oh and thanks to the Ozark Trails Chapter for all their efforts in organizing these events!

        Unfortunately, some of my pictures did not turn out. I messed up some good ones of Brian Taylor, 41 Frank and some others.

            More pictures of Frank's 52. He has been busy rubbing on this car since he got it.




            Check out the steering wheel.

                  To explain Howards rubbing comment. The car had a reallly poor quality paint job that had a lot of orange peel,so after wrestling with what to do I decided to have a go at wet sanding the base/clear paint. The results after buffing exceeded all my expectations

                      Sharp Lark with an unusual paint scheme.



                      I really like the wheels and disc brakes.

                        2R pickup with completely chromed grille. Solid work in progress has an AMC Pacer front suspension and Chevy power.



                        Carl Purdy's 51 that I had never seen before.
