Cactus and a Car Show

Yesterday we got up early and rode.  We went up Gates Pass east to west.  It wasn't terrible, but it was very warm.  I managed to stay off my baby chain ring until the last 3 hills.  That's a win for me.  I found another pretty buckhorn cholla coming down Kinney.

This is from this morning.  Isn't that lovely? 

Today was hotter than yesterday.  However, since sitting is so bad for us, we were forced to leave the house to spend time on our feet.  We discovered the remains of a car show at the new casino.  
I love this car, it looks like it has teeth.

1960 Chevrolet Biscayne.
A 1950 Dodge.

This is the before.  Sorry it's such a crappy picture, but it's a photo of a photo with a lot of glare due to the blazing sun that was over head.  It was found in a barn.

This is after.  It's a beautifully restored 1955 Chevrolet 210 2 door post.

The interior is really nicely done.

Jim viewed this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air with what can only be described as lust (in his heart).

We don't know what this is.

A 1965 Malibu.  It was made in Canada.  As the owner proudly informed us, only 350 rolled off that assembly line; unlike the more pedestrian version assembled in Michigan.  Jim mentioned that he had owned one of these, the owner of this car came very close to giving us a lip fart because it was a Michigan car.  People are so interesting.

A 1940 Chrysler New Yorker.

This is the latest enterprise of the Pascua Yaqui Nation.  It's an enormous casino with a high rise hotel.  I don't get gambling, I just don't.  Smoking is allowed in there.  We walked in, looked around, and had to walk back out.  I can not imagine sitting in front of a slot machine for hours, breathing in second hand smoke.

This is a cool full moon picture I found on the web.  Perigee tonight!

Marco and his associates are coming tomorrow to wash the RV.  I really love outsourcing that.  Washing (and drying) the old 5th wheel was bad enough.  The Class A is even bigger.
