Back to the Late 50’s

Well my reminiscing time is just about over.  By 1958, many of us were back from the service, and had to have a new ride.  Seems like most of the young people were listening to Dina Shore.  ‘Cuz they was seeing the USA in a Chevrolet.  Part of the old gang came back and some just moved on somewhere else. Those who came back were “Mouse” Gregory, who traded his ’55 Stude for a ’57 Eldorado convertible. “Web” Pierce had a ’59 Bonneville convertible, Dick Morgan a ’59 black Buick…

Sacramento Auto Show
sacramento International Auto Show

David and I have been attending the Sac Auto Show at Cal Expo for the past ten years. I remember the first time we attended when I got free tickets to go and figured “why not?”. We thought we’d spend about 2 or 3 hours and then go out to dinner. Eight hours later, we were exhausted, fed and had had a great time. Since then, we go just about every year. So what makes it so much fun? Well, if you are looking for a new car – they’re…

Geezer Picnic 2019
Geezers and Geezerettes

Thanks to everyone for attending the 2019 Geezer picnic! Thirty-one Roamin Angels attended and the food was good and the visiting was great. The raffle was fun. Clare gave the winners just 5 seconds to claim their prize otherwise she pulled another number. So people paid attention! Lots of laughs at the Geezer picnic. See you next year. Maybe you’ll get to join the ‘Geezers’. Photos and commentary by Pat G.

The 2020 Car Show
Roamin Angels Cruisin the Pines Car Show

Why the issue and need for change? Shortly after the 2019 car show we were informed by the Nevada County Fairgrounds that our usual date for the car show was being changed to accommodate their Draft Horse Classic show for 2020.  The usual Draft Horse show was in direct competition with a show in Utah and few if any draft horses would attend the Nevada County Fair show.  The Fairgrounds originally moved our date to the Labor Day weekend which was completely unacceptable due to the fact that it was…

Time Machine

As I observe our fast paced plastic world of gadgetry, I begin to realize my sanity is beginning to stretch its imagination to the breaking point to meet this high tech new millennium.  I am thankful I can still find radio stations that play Blues and 50s’ Rock and Roll music. So what does an old codger like me have to do to keep his mental normality and retain a wholesome out look on life? I slip away to my garage where hidden under a cover is my precious Time…
