Sounds like a GREAT DAY for sure. It's days like you enjoyed that make all the skinned knuckles, sore muscles and sweat worth it. Your Proof that Good people are among us is always heart warming.

I thought at first the old boy was just giving it to me to look at. When I went to give it back and he said you can have it I was a little taken back. Not much in this day and age that is FREE anymore. Yes.....good things do still happen.

Great story!
Just the thought of that man, holding on to those manuals, only to forward them to a complete stranger with one thing in common with his Dad.
That truck! I’m sure his father was smiling down at that jester!
One more item, the thought of a store, offering their restroom facilities, to someone out front of their store? True small town America!
Thanks for the story!

Yeah the small towns are the greatest. There was a lady walking around handing out FREE popcorn. Just a nice feeling at this cruise-in last night. I'm looking the manual over and I don't see a copy write date. I'm not doubting the fellow that gave it to me but I just wanting to check and see if it is indeed an original or a reprint. Any way to tell?

What a great story Olezippi. I’ll bet that parking space would have been taken if you had left home on time, so forgetting your masks was supposed to have happened! Nice weather, nice location, nice shade, nice restrooms, and a nice fellow just hoping to find a ‘49 so he could do something nice to honor his Dad. You guys really did have a nice time last night. I’m jealous!

The wife and I went to a cruise-in yesterday that was the 1st one for our local Expressway Dodge dealer. It was put on my our local Mopar club. The temp was in the low 80's, pretty good breeze, a mobile BBQ truck was on site, ice cream truck, and there was 200+ cars and trucks. Didn't win a door prize or trophy but it ranks up there with being one of the best cruise-ins so far this year.

Ron,
80 degrees sounds great. Dallas had triple digits while I was a little cooler at 95 here in Texas Hill Country. Looking forward to crusiing with a light jacket on and "frost on the pumpkin.

Chris organized another cruise this past weekend and it was open to more type vehicles then just the A.D.‘s. We had folks from the New Braunfels Volkswagen club join us, as well as several trucks from the C!0 truck group. Chris and his friend riding shotgun followed me up I-35 to New Braunfels where we all met up at Bucees. We had 12-13 vehicles in all. The group was too big to go to a restaurant for breakfast so we decided to head out on the cruise. Kevin lead the way to Gruen, TX in his restored ‘51 half ton. Drove past a weekend flea market and Gruene Dance hall where George Strait got his start. Drove on to River Road which runs along the Guadalupe River full of tubers floating downstream trying to relax and escape the summer heat. Lots of RV campers too trying to get away from the monotony and boredom of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a 20 mph speed limit most of the way, so we honked at them and they would wave back. We parked and had a sit down lunch at The Marina restaurant on Canyon Lake. Lots of people going out of the marina on their boats. After a good meal and conversation it was time to turn around and head back the same way we came, but not before a photo shoot. Several folks had to get back early, so they missed being in the pics. Yes, it was really hot, but we didn’t seem to mind because we were all enjoying being out together driving our weekend toys. I drove back to San Antonio along the old El Camino Real trail. Much more scene than I-35, and a lot less traffic!
