Our local AACA Region had been contacted months ago to provide a few '50's era cars for display at the 60th anniversary fund-raising event at Cedar Ridge Camp, a Presbyterian church camp for children in eastern Louisville. I offered to coordinate the event and we had five members display their cars including Pat and I. Cars joining my '55 DeSoto on display were a '58 Dodge, '51 and '57 Chevys and a '51 Frazer.

The camp allowed us access to the free open bar and provided a table for our members to enjoy dinner and dessert with the attendees. Beautiful autumn weather made for a great evening.

Great day in the Ozarks - open car show and fun run combo. Only about 20 cars/trucks but everyone had a wonderful time. The fun run required stops at various designated places and you had to have your car and yourself in the picture at each stop. The cars with the fastest time to leave and return were the winners of the trophies. Unfortunately, I wasn't one of them but what the heck, it was fun anyway. As usual, the only DeSoto at the show.

Attended a car show today at the Kentucky Railway Museum in New Haven, KY, south of Bardstown. Unusually warm late October weather and one of the last shows of the season brought out a record 236 registered cars. There was only one DeSoto - my '55 Firedome sedan - and only one other '50's MoPar, a rodded '56 Plymouth Savoy. That's my buddy's '41 Dodge next to the DeSoto.
