The Mopar Nationals at the National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio

It was HOT at the Mopar Nationals this year. And I don't just mean all those Dodges and Plymouths! Don't get me wrong, there were some pretty amazing cars on site, including a nice collection of Vipers. But I'm pretty sure the temperatures reached over 105 degrees. Let's just say, it was a toasty automotive event.


We were in our new location (L4-5) this year., which worked out perfectly for us. Instead of looking across the aisle at tools, we had a great view of a couple of Petty wing cars and a smaller view of the beginning of the staging lanes for the drag strip. So, for once, I got so see a lot of cars. Usually, Michael goes out exploring, admiring, photographing and shopping, while I "man the booth."

We also had a chance to meet up with some friends (old and new) as well as visit with Mopar Enthusiast  Editor Geoff Stunkard, who we'd seen last at the Wellborn Muscle Car Museum during the Wing Car Reunion in October 2009. He's going to be including a bit about "They Came With The Farm Too" in this year's November issue. Thanks Geoff!

If you're a fan of the Amos Automotive magazine line up, you've probably seen a copy of Muscle Car Enthusiast February 2008. If you haven't, it's worth looking out for. You may even want to contact the magazine and see about a back issue. It's a favorite issue of mine, because it featured "Opens At Eight" on the cover and they ran a supporting article about Michael in the magazine ... very cool!


It's been a busy August for us, with the end not in sight yet. We are off to North Carolina to exhibit Michael's paintings at the Autofair. We'll be set up along side some pretty rare rides in the invitational automobile exhibit. If you have one more car show in you this year, stop on by and check out the cars and Michael's art! See you there. — Linda
