Went to St. Cloud Friday afternoon to pay a speeding ticket and boy, did I get a facefull on my way through town.
Hemi Cuda'*, Shelby Mustangs, Yenko Camaro'*, Vipers, Ferraris, Porsches (Porsches on practically every street), 5- Window 32 Ford custom'*, Z06 Vette'*, and even a new Ford GT all the way through town -cruising, parked in parking lots, drive-thru windows, ... everywhere.
I haven't ever seen anything like this before. I had heard about this 2 day event about 3 months ago, but nothing since and I totally forgotten about it. What a surprise. There was one of practically everything there. It was awesome. Too bad they had Division St. cut down to one lane in each direction for 1 mile due to construction.
Next year is going to be even better as they are extending it to include Sunday, making it a 3 day event -will surely be great event for St. Cloud, and a good competition for Back To The Fifties at the State Fairgrounds for those who can only afford to go to one event.
I was in St. Cloud only long enough to make the stop at the court house, a hair cut from a friend who works at a Hair Stylist'* in the mall, and then I made one trip back down Division St. as I had to get home and on the road for Moondance Jam 2004 (John Foggerty, Rick Springfield (I got a video of him singing a song off his soon-to-be-released album, and he was less than 2 feet from me singing it from atop a folding chair out in the middle of the mosh pit), The Fixx, John Waite, Kory and The Fireflies (just wished I'd been there Wednesday for ZZTop, and Thursday for Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allmen brothers).
Anyhow, I didn't have the digi cam along while I was in St. Cloud, but here'* a link to some pics. I'll look to see if I can find a better page with pics. Watch for my Moondance Jam post in the Lounge later on with pics and video footage of Rick Springfield, and a 3' 5" midget on crutches (I wish I could have gotten a pic of the midget Amish guy who I saw Thursday here in Sauk Centre -he was probably no more than 4' 6" tall and he had a bushy beard almost down to his knees).
