Mecum Auction & New Wheels

MSRA street rod show, but I did attend the show on Friday and Sunday.  On Friday, I spent 5 hrs there with my brother-in-law and saw a portion of the Mecum Auto Auction.  We followed the auction of a 28 Ford Model A coupe that my brother was interested in.  It sold for $15,000.  I watch the Mecum auction every Saturday night on cable TV and it was fun to see it in real life.  I had cramps in my legs on Friday night so stayed home on Saturday, but found out that Mecum was broadcasting live on their web site and through Ustream.
On Sunday, my son came with me to the swap meet and I bought a set of 4 aluminum wheels, shown below.  These should spruce up the old car quite a bit.  I should be able reuse a few of the tires that I already have.

Well, I didn't get the frame fixed in time to take the 37 Chevy to the
On both days, we walked for miles though did not see all 12,000 cars that were there.  The cars are driven into the fair grounds in the morning and have to leave each night.  It is unlikely that they are in the same spot each day.  I did get some good photos of another red 37 Chevy coupe that was valued at $76,000.  Also got photos of a 1950 Studebaker like one that my sister-in-law used to drive and of a 1940 Chevy coupe like that a friend of mine owned.    I could have taken many more pictures like I have in the past, but have become more selective.
