So we made the trek down to Iowa last weekend to check out Torquefest again. This was the second year that John wells has put the show on, and I have to say we were thoroughly impressed with how great the turnout was for this only being the second year. It was good to have a nice presence from some of the other Limpnickie lot crew as well. We met up with some old friends and made some new ones throughout the weekend. At one point I think Don wood and Chris Callen may have both tried to sneak me into one of Don's gypsy bed rolls. I'm not sure what their intention was, but I have a sneaking suspicion it may have been against my will. Allegedly.
The dirt track was running crazy all weekend with both flat track races and nut jobs in their hot rods tearing it up. At one point somebody put their 50' merc over the barrier tires and jacked the front end all up. Unfortunately no pictures of that. Anyway, enough jibber jabber, here's some pictures of what I did see.
Show cars in the colosseum:
This guy has the coolest tow rig ever.
I only wish I could have bought this. I want one for when i have a kid someday....
I would even settle for this if I had to...
Heading home was one of the most scenic rides I have been on. 52 runs right next to the river, so there's plenty to look at. The only shitty part was that it was 38 degrees all the way home, all 300 miles of it. Every part of me froze up like a dreamsicle.
