#1 jmgford 23rd Annual All Ford Car Show August 16th-Iowa/Missouri border Quote     Reply
There is an all-Ford car show in Bloomfield Iowa next weekend (Aug. 16th). Four of us from Dubuque are taking our cars down Saturday and staying over for Sunday. Luke's not interested in this one, but my 9-year old "car buddy", Chloe, is very excited to go. This is her first out-of-town car adventure with Dad. Should be fun.

I haven't been to that show forever. I'd love to go, not sure if I can swing it though, as we'll just be getting back from vacation Friday night. Where are you staying? We stayed in Ottumwa the first time we went. Stayed in Washington the last time, but that was a whole other deal.

Not sure Matt. My friend made the reservations. I think we're right in Bloomfield.

Several of them always came to our show in Dubuque, during the five years that we put it on. I always felt bad that I was unable to attend theirs. I think I am going to take my Fairlane since there is a Fairlane Club mini-meet in conjucntion with it.

If it looks crappy on Saturday afternoon, I'm scrapping the car show plans and heading to Michigan to pickup Dad's Maverick instead.

Hope you are staying dry up there Jack. The rain has almost moved out of here, still kind of muggy.

We had a great cookout in the parking lot of the motel last night. It rained all night and we decided at 8:30 this morning that there was no end of rain in sight and things could only get worse, so we headed home. Drove all the home in the rain. I don't think my Fairlane needed a 4-hour pressure washing! They reported 84 mph winds in Iowa City!

Sorry to hear it got rained out. But not real sorry, since I decided it was going to be too wet to drive up.

Matt, you are not allowed in Iowa if there is a potential for any kind of weather
