Road Trip: pics from June 13
Leaving Alpine TX morning of June 13. We’ve travelled 2161 miles so far.
From Alpine TX we drove on US 90 North to pick up I-10 West toward El Paso. Scenery has gradually gone from flat to mountainous. Roads are still very flat but jagged & rocky mountains are in the distance.
Another ’32 highboy approaches from the rear. Several roadsters with no tops on the Road Tour. They drive mile after mile in the direct sun, wearing long sleeves, hats and even scarves over their faces. What troopers!
Pecan groves. Everything parched with no rain since January, but irrigation has made it possible to keep this grove thriving.
Stopped for gas in Van Horn TX, where US 90 meets I-10. Right next to the gas station was this small restaurant. Diesel Fried Chicken must be a West Texan specialty.
Gassing up at Van Horn.
Some of the Road Tour gang pulling out and heading to I-10.
Waiting our turn to get on the road.
A Road Tour member passing us. Neat, clean 1960 Ford truck. Front plate reads: “Grandpa bought it, I’ve still got it.”
Speed limit of 80 MPH. Apparently you can get a ticket for going just slightly over 80. Makes sense.
Randy Clark’s 1946 Ford Delivery.
Another road tour beauty – 1957 Chev Wagon.
MSD Ignition in El Paso hosted our group for lunch and a tour of their facilities.
Great lunch provided by MSD – thank you for your generosity!
Impressive facilities. Paul & Dorothy enjoy manufacturing tours.
Rick Love & Jack Chisenhall of Vintage Air are gathering for a photo with the MSD hosts. Rick & Jack are really happy about something.
Welcome to New Mexico.
Just east of Deming NM where we stayed Monday night. Notice the dust swirling in the air. Wind was blowing from the west where wild fires are raging. You could smell the smoke in the air and our ’32 was covered in ash the next morning.
