Photos from the Badlands, Wall SD, Rapid City and Sturgis!

2013 Bandit Run Day Zero and Day 1...

By Shaker

Here are the camera photos to share of the First two days of the Bandit Run which began in Lincoln NE at Restore-a-Muscle-Car in Lincoln NE. This year, Mr. Hal Needham, Director, Producer, and Creator of the Smokey and the Bandit movie was present to sign books, brochures, and well just about anything you want signed. It was great to have the day with Hal and then an evening with Hal Needham at the Grand ole Theatre in Lincoln before the start of the 2013 Bandit Run!

Hot Rod Power Tour was fun last week BUT this was sad indeed!

By Shaker

Florida man killed in head on collision on Hwy 69 near Moundville in his vintage 1969 Camaro...

Guys, be careful !!! This lady was passing on a 2 lane going over the crest of a hill and hit the man and his son head-on!

Hard to understand why anyone would pass in a no passing zone.

I'll post photos of the Power Tour later.

jwf changing Motortopia name to Shaker

By Shaker

When I first joined Motortopia a couple of years ago, I was having one of those days when you miss a loved one that has gone on to be with the Lord...in this case, my dad, whose initials were JWF. So, I used my dad's initials from that point on to remember him and honor him, etc. Well, my dad was the type that he didn't want you moping around for very long, so it is time I moved on and changed my Motortopia name. He was a WWII veteran, served in the USN - CB's in the Pacific. I had the opportunity to take him back to Port Huneme, CA to visit the CB Museum there. What a trip!!!! He and mom were married for 58 years!

Anyway... from now on... JWF is now SHAKER. And Shaker will serve as my CB handle as well.

See yall on the Bandit Run 2010!

Jupiter Beach Resort on the 2010 Bandit Run

By Shaker

While in FL on business, I took the time to go by the Jupiter Beach Resort and snap some photos. We will stay at this 4 Star Resort while on the Bandit Run in May! This is a nice place and right on the beach which is rare in the Jupiter area.
With all the cold weather scattered around the country, I am ready to go on the run NOW!

Ready to Roll Roy?

'81 Turbo TA SE for sale near my house

By Shaker

Saw this car last week near home. Nice looking ride with original Turbo, 115,000 miles, 3rd owner, documentation, asking $8,600 on the windshield. Good car for someone with very little to do appearance wise. Nice!

Finally in the Shop

By Shaker

I was beginning to wonder if I would get the BLUE in the shop to find the nagging oil leak before the Bandit Run. Well, it's in the shop and good news... not the rear seal (didn't think it was), not the rear oil pan gasket! The doggone oil filter bracket AGAIN. We have had trouble with this engine and THAT DARN BRACKET! But we think we have it fixed this time. Tomorrow will tell when we take 'er out on GA 400 and let 'er rip!

Photo taken on recent trip to GM Headquarters

By Shaker

On a recent business trip to GM's Headquarters in Detroit, I snapped this photo on my cell phone of the musclecars in the lower lobby of the Rencen Center! Notice the vette, GTO, Buick, Biscayne, and the Riviera, etc. Man o Man what some jewels out of the GM stash. Anyone that hasn't visited Detroit and the Ford, Chrysler, GM museums are in for a treat if you are ever able to go there!

Enjoy!

Tail Feathers at Thanksgiving!

By Shaker

We had the chance (and good weather) to drive the two TAs down to see the family over Thanksgiving! Except for a small oil leak, the cars fared very well over the 500 mile round trip.
We had a blast and gotta lot of thumbs up along the way!
Hope you enjoy!

A Huge Surprise from My Bride of 30 years!!

By Shaker

After traveling almost the entire month of November 2008 with only one weekend to enjoy (and spent it at the STARS event in Florida), my wife really surprised me upon my arrival home from the airport with an installed Bird on my restored '78 TA. Those of you who reviewed the photos on the Blue on my garage may remember that I didn't have a Bird on the Hood yet. Well, my wife had it done as a Birthday present! Take a Look>>>

Enjoy!!

Little Red TA really performed well on the Bandit Run 2008!

By Shaker

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

The only tank of fuel I can recall checking was the one where the Group was allowed to run Bristol Motor Speedway. The Little Red TA got 15.78 mpg but included 20-25 laps around Bristol. I figured without Bristol, I must have gotten close to 20 MPG! That is pretty awesome considering it is still a 3 speed Auto (no overdrive) and 30 years old!

I love 2nd Gen Trans Ams

By Shaker

I own my first new car - a 78 Martinique Blue, WS6 TA. See comments under garage photos. It took me over 20 years to convince the 2nd owner to sell this car back to me after I traded it in 1981. When I finally did get the car in my possession, it was in bad shape mechanically and needed painting, interior, the whole works. 7 years later and I am almost done!
