A few days ago Sherry told me we had a luncheon date with Don & Evelyn. Don knows the owner and knew his dad the original owner. Don is a customer at Rick’s Body Shop. So we attended with a few thousand people a customer appreciation BBQ dinner. All you can eat BBQ pork and Chicken. It was all delicious. I am sure they cooked a couple thousand pounds of meat plus chicken. As we were leaving, they gave anyone who wanted it, some to take home.

The same meal would have cost in the neighborhood of $15-20 each. BUT Jim and Dean joined us and we had a great visit over the meal. But the icing on the cake is Rick’s collection of antique and specialty cars. I just love walking by and thinking back when these cars filled the roads of NC in my youth.
The 1950 Ford
As KIds we boys knew about every make, model and year. I looked over at Jim and Don as we walked around. I asked, “What will kids now say about cars when they are 70 & 80 yrs old?”
Jim popped up smiling and said loudly, “Hey LOOK, A 2015 KIA! We sure had fun in that old thing, gas was only $4 a gallon!”
That brought a good laugh.
a 1939 CAddy Limo It was new the year I was born.
I had a bad camera day, but I just wanted to show you a few cars.
Don says the collection is much smaller.
