08/20/06 - Hiboy and I met just in time for my Birthday! When we heard
Hollywood Hotrod car show
taking place that day, we just couldn't resist the temptation and
decided to make it a birthday date!
Having accidentally met
some nice new hotrodder friends at Starbuck Cafe a few mornings
earlier, we called each other and everyone decided to meet up for
coffee at 8AM and then convoy to Burbank. I was on cloud nine as I
followed several other cool hotrods down Victory boulevard, and
needless to say we didn't go unnoticed! The San Fernando valley parted
before us like Moses Red Sea and before we knew it we had crossed it
from West to East and had arrived to the promised land. I was able to
find a spot inside the lot because my roadster is small. Some of my
convoy brotherins were exiled to Siberia (the lot behind the building)
:( . Once again many hotrodders from the local scene gathered to check
out Mr. Hiboy and complimented me generously. A TV producer also
approached me about a reality TV show they are working on and asked if
I would be interested. Now... Let's see. Mmmmm... National TV exposure
driving the roadster across the Nevada desert for 3 days or so... YES
YES YES YES!
I met more new friends
that day and joined them for lunch. Later I cruised the Burbank hills
solo and then headed to THE DERBY for a night of swing dancing. Well
now, that's what I call a Birthday!
