First…as I have “confessed” I have rejoined Twitter. It is failing, once again, as a source of blog traffic. Still, every now and then I see a tweet I like. @DocBastard claims to be a trauma surgeon. Of course, I have no idea if that’s true, but this tweet really spoke to me:
Dear antivax parents,
-You do not know The Truth.
-You have not discovered things Doctors Don’t Tell You.
-You have not done research.
-You are not better than everyone else.
-You are not holistic.
-You are not special.
-You are not “woke.”
What you are is wrong.
I will add that I would apply this message to all anti-vaxxers, not just anti-vaxxer parents.
Yesterday, my wonderful wife and I spent much of the day at the Goodguys gathering at Westworld in Scottsdale. I took some photos, to say the least. I also have my first sunburn in decades. Was it worth it? Probably not, but it is what it is.
Last weekend, we went to another car gathering in Scottsdale and, of course, I took pictures. That event didn’t have anywhere near the volume of cars as Goodguys, but had a higher percentage of cars in which I have interest as I am not a hot rod guy and those made up a large percentage of the cars from yesterday. Also, cars shown at this Goodguys event could not be any newer than model year 1987. Without further ado, some pictures from both events, not in any order.
I took many more photos than I have shown here. Now that we are more than two weeks past our second vaccine shot, we will be attending events like this even though most people are not wearing masks at them. Still, we’re fully vaccinated, the events are outdoors and we are keeping our distance. I must admit, though, that while we wore masks for the event last weekend, we did not wear them all the time yesterday. Maybe I should have worn a mask around my neck so I wouldn’t have received such a sunburn…

I did not realize that the Goodguys Spring Nationals was back on. I have been to their Fall event also at Westworld. I particularly like the black Kurtis roadster as that is a most rare car. The gold Halibrand mags with knockoffs is very interesting.
Yes, Philip, the Goodguys are back. I would estimate about 2,000 cars were being shown, but YMMV.
Love that Imperial. The Avanti and Catalina caught my eye also.
I hold out little hope of getting any car shows here in Ontario. It’s been reported on some major news outlets in the states and internationally, but things have been pretty badly mismanaged here and cases (especially variant cases) have been climbing. We are supposed to be back in lockdown until I think mid May.
Ona positive note though, my parents, my girlfriend’s parents, my girlfriend and myself have all received our first shots (I got Pfizer). Next shot not until August, which is fine, I can wait.
Thanks, Mark. Always knew you had good taste in car design. 😉
Sorry the vaccine/virus situation is less than optimal in your home province.

You have taught me about a new event (to me). Wish I had known about the Goodguys gathering. I will have to put that on my list for next year.
It was our first time attending. They have another event here in mid-November (hint, hint).

That’s just about the time we return in the fall. I’ll be looking forward to it!
