The Coolest Car at the Show ('50 Hudson Commodore)

This was a fantastic ride, organized by Moorpark Jonny. It was a ride all the way in to Simi Valley for a classic car show. We didn't have the full crew, but still met at Rolling Pin Donuts and had a good ride. The worst part of the ride was Santa Rosa Road, with all the cagers trying to go 70 MPH, on a two-lane highway. We got over onto the shoulder several times to let the speeders go, and then returned to our positions. Then, as we made the turn up Moorpark Road, there was something slithery in the road. Yep, it was a snake! It kinda took me by surprise. At first, I thought it was a piece of rope, until it tried to bite me- jk. We took Tierra Rejada into Los Angeles Avenue, and eventually met up with the Wild Wood "Wild-Ones" on their beautiful Vespa LXV's. When we got to First St., we made a left to go to the car show.
The car show had some cool looking rides. There were several Chevy's and roadsters and a very mint restored Hudson Commodore. I took a lot of pictures because my dad's a car guy. Most of them were worth taking pictures of, except the mass-produced Cobras and the not-so original lowriders, I didn't care for much.
We took off promptly at noon and rode off the back way, stopping at Chuy's of Moorpark, honking and yelling as we rode by the Harley Davidson shop. Inside Chuy's, there was a biker or two who had to wait in line behind us. He was looking at us, probably thinking, "What is this, some kind of scooter Hell's Angels?" But it was all in good humor. We're only out to have fun. And fun we had. The food tasted good after the long ride and car show. We had a very fun ride back home. New member, Harold and I took a fun little route through the estates on Central and took Crestview back home.
