2021 Keels & Wheels
« on: May 03, 2021, 01:47:31 PM »
This past weekend was Keels & Wheels here in Seabrook, Texas.  This is an annual event that was interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.  This year the theme was Ford v. Ferrari and the Grand Marshalls were Peter Miles and Aaron Shelby both of whom were true gentlemen.  I also got to meet Bruce Meyer and Barry Meguiar but perhaps the most fun was running into Tony Conover who restored my 1966 GT350.  We showed our red Boss 429 and our red XKE Convertible.  The Boss was in the Mustang class with another Boss 429 so the competition was real.  Somehow our Boss beat the other one and came away with first place.  Even though it rained all day on Saturday it was nice to get out and hang out with the friends in the hobby.  Here is a picture.

Nice!  I've been to K&W several times.  Always a great show with great cars and great people. 

It rained heavily one of the years, but even the owners of the mega-buck cars didn't seem to mind. 

Not even the guy with the Amphicar that putted around the harbor most of the time.   8)
