Hello to all 12 Kings members! And a Happy New Year!
Every year on the first Sunday there is a gathering of Hot Rods, Restos and Customs in Bryan. This year its on the second Sunday as New Years Day was too near on the calendar.
I started going with John Tyndall to this event some years ago. I hesitated to do so because it starts (and ends) early and is a pretty good hike up there and back. But John said it was fun so I joined him, dragging myself out of bed and into the hot rod. And lo and behold, John was right! It is a fun event! Most of the folks drive up from around Houston, so there are some different cars than what we often see. They get there early and the show starts breaking up around 12 noon so everyone can get back early. Its held in the vicinity of the Chicken Oil Co. Cafe, 3600 S College Ave, Bryan, TX 77801.
So we plan on going again this year! Of course it’s a weather permitting type of deal and early January is pretty unpredictable, however the weather forecast is great so far! If it’s a pretty day there are usually 200 – 300 cars there, but if it is cold and raining its not worth the trip as not may folks will come out.
We will meet up with anyone that wants to join us on this coming Sunday morning, January 9th in San Marcos at the Lowe’s parking lot (at the back). Let’s plan on meeting there at 6:45 AM as it’s a 2 hour plus trip. And come with your cars gassed up! If your car is not up to the trip and you want to go we can double up and carry a passenger with us (let us know if you want to do so).
