Headed up to the in-laws this past weekend and checked out the car show happening in historic downtown Jackson since Ben’s dad was showing their VW. (This was after we watched Arsenal defeat Hull for the FA Cup of course!!!) It was the perfect sized car show with a variety of cars lining the main street, thankfully none of which looked like they came from a ZZ Top video. Sadly there were no Thunderbirds. There are a lot of great buildings in this old town founded in 1848. It was the perfect backdrop for the show. The National Hotel has been restored and looks beautiful perched at the end of the main street.
Ben's parents' VW
The Buick was my favorite
Funny moment came as I was walking down the street and heard ‘Hey, rat rod girl!’ coming from the owner of a convertible Fairlane. I guess I was the only one there dressed as I was so he asked for a photo with his car. Why not! In all my years, I think this is the first time I’ve done a pose like this with a car, except for the Batmobile at Magic Mountain in 1996 when I jumped the rope! Anyhow, he was nice enough to email the photo to Ben’s dad so I could share. He shouted ‘Bye hot rod girl!’ as the cars left town. Funny to be the only one at a car show in vintage with tattoos! We all had a great time that day (though I’ve not had allergies that bad in years and now know Zyrtec and wine may not be the best combo!).
Sadly I did not get any shopping in.
The old court house...
So pretty but makes me so sneezy!
Shenanigans at Gallagher's Pub near the in-laws...
Always been so curious what the inside of the Buckhorn Lodge looks like...
Before wine and allergy meds got the best of me!
