Oh it will be used! :-)

I sold the VW bus a couple years back, it's now living in AZ.

My father and I took a trip to Dayton WA this weekend to attend the All Wheels Weekend car show.  It's the first time I've been to this show and it was really cool, lots of unique vehicles showed up.

We left town at 4am for the 66 mile drive to Dayton, wanted to get there nice and early to snag a good spot.  Here we're rolling down the highway and watching the beautiful sunrise in the distance. The new Hella headlights are a HUGE improvement over the OEM units!






We stopped in Waitsburg to check temperatures on the portal boxes, trans, axles and tires...Everything looked nice and cool.






Wait a minute...I didn't know I owned a tackle shop in Waitsburg LOL.




Nearing Dayton. Almost no traffic on the road early in the morning...love it.




At the show....it was a great turn out and we got to chat with a lot of great people.  Fun Stuff!






You can see I still need to wire the LED lighting.




This poor guy hit a deer on the way to the show while cruising down the road in his 55 Ford.  OUCH!




This was by far my favorite car at the show.  It's a 1915 American Le France fire truck that's been converted into a Speedster for the Peking to Paris race.  It has it's original 900 Cubic Inch engine that develops 130hp and chain drive to the rear wheels.  Hand build aluminum body.  So HUGE and SOOOOOOOOOO Cool!!!!   40" tires!   Lots of pics taken of this beauty!




















My father and I hanging out at the show before the public started rolling in.




Getting some snacks on the way out of town




And rolling home...Had a great time!




We will be at Cool Desert Nights in Richland WA next weekend.

Congratulations on Unimog build! I can't think of anything more special than doing the project with your father and going to a car show with him. What a great example of spending quality time with your dad! The La France is beyond words!  clap
