There's some good stuff between these covers
So there we were, caught between bronchitis and a hard place. But wait, we'll save all that for later and instead we're going to tell you about the wonderful happenings at the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame Banquet last October.
There we were, listening to emcee Lance Lambert as he harassed, harangued and otherwise cajoled (with the best of intentions) an audience that was primed for a good time. The awarding of scholarships was a parade of hardworking and appreciative students, all of whom were obviously touched by the WSHRHOF's generosity.
Then, out of nowhere the announcement came, "Annette Barton is the 2018 WSHRHOF Photo Journalist of the Year!!" Pandemonium, to say the least. Minutes later Annette had returned to earth to only to sit and stare into space. A well-deserved honor. No photographer works harder than Annette Barton. It was a memorable evening of fun and camaraderie.
Sadly we are obliged to share with you the passing of Mike Shelley. Turn to page 11 of this issue for details.
Also, only because it is a frequently asked question, our daughters are doing great. Jessica has been selected for promotion to Lt. Cmdr. by the U.S. Coast Guard while Kailee continues the grueling schedule of a third year medical student.
Other than the preceding, we're excited over the contents of this issue, starting off with our Associate Editor Bob Roseberry's treatment of his visit with Del Friedli. Then there's John Novak's column where John delves into the do's and don'ts of motor oil - informative reading.
Then there's the 11 pages of Calendar of Events. Remember, this is just the "sampler" calendar which takes us to mid-year (2019). The parade of cool rides continues with our fabulous center section, hundreds of quality color photos from events throughout the Northwest and beyond. In fact, you don't want to miss the Cache Valley car show beginning on page 4.
There's a whole lot more and we hope you take the time to check it out.
Meanwhile, we are hoping to be on the road more next season. Might even be a travel trailer in our plans and maybe we'll see you down the road.
One final bit of business for this edition - there's still time to get a CruZin' Christmas Gift Subscription.
