The 6th Annual Vern Olson Cruise

This was a fabulous fundraiser/cruise by John and Jack Olson of Wisconsin. Started out with a brisk breeze and an a.m. temp of about 40something degrees. It was wonderful in the sun, but chilly when the sun went down.

The "blue car" on the street. Behind it you'll see Dennis and Pat Shearer.

Bob Knaack, who has driven hot rods in snowmobile suits.
I'd estimate about 40 cars, (sorry no exact count) showed up for the 150ish mile cruise around Madison. We stopped in Mt. Horeb to tour their very nice fire station with black fire trucks... and had a root beer keg for floats!
We also stopped at a few old general stores. Everyone is just standing around and talking, it was a nice time to chat and stretch out.
A pit stop, to gas up and keep the group together.

Sorry about the quality of the video. New camera, wasn't quite sure how to work it, and almost dropped it at the end. If I would've known. I'd have taken more.

Stan Johnson's '26 Lakes Modified. This car is beautiful in real life.
Hank Grove's 1926 T Sedan which LHR has converted to a Sedan Delivery.
Dropped floor that Lions Hot Rods specializes in, creating plenty of leg room. The man pictured is 5'11".
Jim's Lakes Mod, in progress.

Louvred deck lid with Surprise underneath!

This is just one example of some of the cool things that happen here at LHR. I didn't expect the surfer cross underneath. Pretty Rad!

Car Art

I still think this is one of the coolest car pictures ever. Doesn't Sean G.'s car look dark and mysterious. I'm sure it is.

The Blue Car

This is a '23 T Bucket. Modeled somewhat after the Kookie car. And it's signed by Norm Grabowski.

This should technically be titled "Brett's Car" but really Dad is having too much fun with his first completed car that Brett hasn't gotten much of a chance to drive it.
