I spoted this doing a drive by of the cruze, and pulled in. I've seen him around town before. He didnt even know about the car show. He & his girlfriend just came to town for a pizza! Nice people.

The gray 83 is mine, the blue 71 is his. Six cyl auto. Nice inside, too.

What size tires are on the front of your van? Those look so good on there

I wish I would have known about that. I ran upon that show about 2 years ago by accident when I was out cruising aimlessly on my bike. It was a cool little show! I made a mental note and we se what happened!Awsome pics! I hope you can p.m. me the dates so I can make a "marker note" and not just a "mental note".

Summerfest is the weekend of June 23. The car show will be at DQ. This is the one I look forward to every year, but I just now see that is the same weekend as a race a Quaker City, so I cannot be around.mad

The next main street one is in July. I donĺt really enter, I just go for beer, and see whatĺs going on.

(remember: mine's the gray one)

Thanks! The tires are 31x10.5x15. The wheels are 15 x 8 Enkei's, circa 1985.

The ONLY "street" tire I could find in that size is:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=LTX+M%2FS&partnum=105R5LTXOWL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

It used to have some BFG "sport truck TA's", in the same size, but I think they stopped making them when The A Team was still on the air...

Very nice. 35 years ago, my parents had one, but it was cargo, aluminum slot mags, brown, platform for a bed and full of shag carpet. Wow, just figured out why I am into vans.
