    Default 30th Annual Frankenmuth Auto Fest - Frankenmuth MI - Sept 6-8

    The 30th annual Frankenmuth Auto Fest gets underway this Friday at Heritage Park in Frankenmuth Michigan, aka Little Bavaria. It has been the subject of two episodes of My Classic Car with Dennis Gage of the years. Friday evening is a huge block party with cars parked all over Main Street. Saturday and Sunday events move to Heritage Park. It helps to know that there is a micro brewery in town too.

    Maybe I can introduce you to Trixie Roth, Big Daddy's widow, while we are there. I think she is suppose to be back this year again.

    Next week I will post the Sellars all-Buick & Pontiac car show. Glad I can help bud.

    Well Trixie Roth was indeed there at the show. I got my picture taken with her, my son and father-in-law. She even autographed our new Rat Fink Pontiac T-shirts for us. Lots of cool rides as well.

    This is interesting spin on the concept of a "shop truck". A '74 Chevy Step Van running 385R60 20s in back and 285R60 18s in front on the biggest Torqure Thrust rims I've ever seen. Love the shark too.

    I've never seen a '41 Willy's pickup before. I doubt I ever will again too.

    Final pics. This guy clear goes beyond the idea of "he who dies with the most toys wins". This guy's mantra should be "he who brings the most toys to the show wins and I am in the lead". In this case, a '55 International Harvester COE flatbed, on which is carries a '33 custom Dodge pick-up truck, in the bed of the pick-up sitting on a retractable bed is a 120 HP 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle. At the bottom of the COE bumper is the largest trailer hitch ball I have ever seen (obviously its used for heavy duty commercial use only). It must be 8-10 inched in diameter. He says it is for his "boat". I am not sure what he's got, but given what he had here, I am sure its big too.
