Last night I went to a different Bike Nite other than Scooters.
This one was at a small bar in my old neighborhood named Porkies Clubhouse.
The reason I went there was because it was on the main drag of Flint, and a classic car auto cruise is going on all week-end. The cruise route is about 15 miles long and cars were passing by all night .. My camera phone takes shitty pics so I didn't even bother to post any more blurry cars. The first pic shows my vantage point of the oncoming traffic. Here is an interesting side note. The older building across the street to the right, is all thats left of old Fisher Body.
Fisher Body was originally called the Durant Carriage Works, it was owned by Billy Durant, who was regarded to be the founder of General Motors. My grandpa worked at Fisher for 40 years, as did most of my class-mates parents. It closed down in the mid-80's as a mfg facility, and is now a Tech Center. That too was part of the Sit-Down strike of the 1930's, that gave rise to the UAW.
The second pic is just like my very first car...A 1963 Impala! I wish I had that car now, I bought it in 1968 for 300 dollars!!
The last pic is a very nice chopper with a 1960 Chevy across the street..
See you all tomorrow for Friday Flash 55.
