Latta show

--->Every year in june the rochester Street Machines put on a show in greece ny simply known as the "Latta Show". Ive personally been to this show 8 times and it only gets better. This year looked to be sketchy as the sky filled with clouds and started pissin a little in the morning but by 10am it seemed to hold off for the show. I had to work a little but skipped out a little early so i could take little man "Mr T" to the show and try to teach him a little something about the lifestyle. By lifestyle i mean how to be a car guy. At one point during the show i stopped to check out a little bobber built that was being raffled off for the "fallen Heros" on sept 11. While filling out my info and payin the dude on of the burly lookin bicker guys ask Lil man if he wanted to sit on his bike. As the lillte guy looked at me with a little fear in his eye i thought about my own childhood and how sitting on a bike at 7 years old would have made my day but i was around them as long as i can remember, which is more than i can say about "Mr T". As a dink (dual income-no-kids) i try to teach any young kid i come across the art of being a man the way i see it by introducing them to cars,bikes and anything metal. When "Mr T" was 3 i remember him sitting on the tank of my Zx9 as we did laps around the block and he seemed to love it but what happend? I guess i let him down in the sence that i left him to his video games as i did my own thing. ....... THis seems to be getting off track a little so back to the car show. The biker dudes ivited me to come to the club house sometime and i left it at " Ill be there to pick up new ride when i win "!! A few laughs later and off to the rest of the show. The chrome and great paint jobs are everywhere but it takes something unique to get this guy off.
---> This things nuts. Chop top muscle car? Tubs, cage and a motor to push it down the track make this thing on my list of winners!
--> Next up is the Jaggster! Now i have to say im not a but jag guy but shove a jag v12 in a roadster and youve got my vote!
---> Real deal award goes to this cat for his strange build. As i talked to this guy i got the feeling hes a little off as he seemed to glow a little while he told me about the build. First startnig life as a late 80s chevy s10 this thing now has an old dodge cab and way to many mods to remember. The guy uses it as his daily driver and drives thing all over, even to Jalopy drags where he scooped up a nice trophy this year. Congrats!
--->Anyway thats it for today and i hope you got your fix whith these machines and please check out the side bar for more show pics!
