Antique Boat Centers Tent was very busy today.
If you had told me three years ago that the President of the ACBS would be reporting live for Woody Boater, I would have laughed until I had to sit down. Well.. My fellow Woody Boater.It gives me incredible pride to introduce you to our Reporter in Texas. His Holiness, the Admiral, General, His highest being, the President of the ACBS , Jim Mersman. This guy is amazing . And a huge hats off to the ACBS for having fun with all this. NOW… Jim has made the classic tragic flaw.. And I am sorry, it doesnt matter how lofty your position.. We get to make up the captions…
So.. There are over 8 billion dollars of cool cars and boats.. And Jim sends us a water ski.. A frieken water ski.. OK, its in a cool yellow boat, Maybe its an art statement. Its the juxtaposition of wood and yellow. Like a bee with a stinger.. OH god.. I am trying Jim..
A car.. A cool car.. OK, but not in Texas. Its hot as H. E. Double Hockey sticks today from the reports. It is a neat little car though. And different.
This is a Cord, I guessed that. Now it has some very cool Leather Pebble guards.. And the previous owner is none other than Tom Mix.. No jokes here. It's very cool.. Worth the trip alone to see.
Finally .. A Boat.. And varnish! Now its getting even more interesting. How cool is this. Cool cars, cools stuff, cool boats and warm weather. All ya need is some good BBQ.. To bad they are in Texas.. No good BBQ there? Right? Do they cook BBQ in Texas?
Another cool boat. These are fun small boats. Of course in Texas, the land of largeness. ?????? maybe put some steer horns on the bow? And leather stuff.. OK.. Palimino seats..
A hot black Bug Eye. I love these little suckers. And how cool is this. Cars and boats.. They should name the show after that? Wait.. NOwwww I get it..
Now both, a keel and wheels. nice combo..
It's official, i would have a seizure at this show. My ADD would be on over load. Poor Alex's head would explode! A piano.. Its not a Keel or Wheel. Maybe the show should be called Keyboards, Keels and Wheels. It makes my head hurt just trying to write this. Might explain why Jim's last email was.. Off to NASA, just 5 miles down the road. Run Jim run.. Whats next? New York Taxi cabs?
OH GOD! Is your left eye twitching like mine right now? Sure a Taxi, why not?
A Water taxi. I sense a theme here. Is this madness have a theme? Could these just me a cool show, with just cool stuff that we all like? Just take a bunch of Ridlen and what the hell.. Eat some brisket and have a great time. One thing is for sure. These folks are one fun group.
Paul and Karen Harrisons Gar Wood Sedan. This boat is stunning and been all aver the show circuit. Paul drove this down from Calgary Canada.. That's a gillion miles.. And he made it in one piece.. We always have the return trip.. What commitment..
All kidding aside, this is one of the nations top shows and is a very well attended event. They were expecting over 9,000 folks today. Its a fund raiser and the hosts are extremely hospitable. Texas style, so you know you feel welcome. Our hats are also off to Jim and the gang for sending us this stuff, and letting us all have some fun with it. Thanks Jim.
WHAT? Another friek'n water ski? What is it with these water skis?
