Fifth Friday is the best Friday

Every month that there are five Fridays the fellas at the White Hall Drag O Way have a cruise in. It’s always filled with good cars and good people. This month was a little different with the event moving about 10 miles south to the small town of Carrollton Illinois. I had a few technical difficulties with my camera so pictures are a bit light this go round but never feed the issues are fixed and the big White Hall Drag O Way Reunion is right around the corner.

As for now, how about some pics from last Friday!

Cruising with the WHDOW and JCSMA crews.

After what seems like a long winter and a spring that just won’t quite come I made it to my first car event today. I didn’t get to partake in the whole cruise, but fortunately I was able meet up with the crew at one of the stops which luckily was just down the road from the IG world head quarters. It seems like it’s been forever since I saw my friends at the White Hall Drag O Way and Jersey County Street machine Association and was it nice to get out and see them again. Oh yeah, and their cars.

The best thing about a cruise is you get to see, hear, and smell the cars doing what they are supposed to be doing, driving! Car shows are cool, car cruises are where it’s at. Plenty more after the jump. Just click the continue reading button.

2014 Pike County Muscle Car Tour

Car shows are fun and it’s certainly a great place to take the family and see some great pieces of automotive engineering. I’m glad they exists because it’s important to have these shiny pristine examples for the world to see. However I’d trade ten car shows for one day of cruising. Today was that day. The day started off very wet and while some spirits were dampened and some owners decided to keep their cars in the garage a small but mighty crew turned out to hit the open road in the name of American muscle.

I would get the luxury of riding shot gun in one bad ass fifth gen Camaro that I’ve showed you before here on IG. The pilot on our rocket ship Brenton and I have more in common then just a love for cars. Both of us are also bass guitarist and farmers. Needless today there was no lack of good conversation in our car. Mainly though it was about cars and I was fortunate enough to spend the day in his 500+hp rocket ship. LS3 powered, cammed, and a mean exhaust meant when we rolled into a little town everyone took notice.

Hemi power: Old and New

I suppose I should start this post off with something really professional and cliche talking about how legendary the Hemi engine is. However if you are here you know that. The hemi recently turned 50 and there have been all sorts of celebrations. I hear the events were great. Meanwhile back here at the IG ranch I was just excited to see a couple Hemi cars side by side at a small get together in my home town. You have seen both of these cars before but I thought it might be cool to examine some of the details that connect the Hemi E bodies of the past with the current king of the Hemi.

The above picture was my favorite of the night. I think it shows that while things have changed they have certainly stayed the same. Clearly the new Challenger is bigger but the lines are all there.
