Road Trip: pics from June 14
Deming NM motel at 8:00 am.
Rick Love leads our daily drivers’ meeting before we leave for the first leg of our trip today. First stop: Tombstone AZ
Heading out – not too hot yet, but it’s early.
The haze in the distance is smoke from the wildfires in Arizona.
Another scenic drive, this one on I-10 West from Deming NM to Tombstone AZ
Welcome to Arizona
One of our Road Tour members – a pretty 34 Ford coupe
Bill Story from California – 32 Ford roadster. Bill said he had to hold his GPS up to his ear at times to hear Miss Garmin give directions. When you’re alone in the car, you can’t read the Road Tour directions nor the map, so you rely strictly on the GPS if you get separated from the group.
’34 Ford Phaeton – another Road Tour member.
Getting into some beautiful rocky landscapes.
Miles of huge rock piles. So very different than the Tennessee Smokies.
Approaching Tombstone AZ – home of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral.
A couple of cowboy characters. Several people in town were dressed as cowboys or gunfighters and they strolled around doing nothing specific but they gave the town a more authentic Western look.
Main street in Tombstone.
Gunfighters being verbally abused in the middle of the street. She had a rolling pin at one point.
Another type of horsepower in town today.
Paul & Dorothy decided to take a route to our Tucson hotel. Some Tombstone locals suggested 3 back roads to pick up I-10 further west, so we did. The tower of smoke is from the Arizona wildfires.
After a hot day at the OK Corral (well, maybe the restaurant was air conditioned), we got to our hotel, cleaned up, rested and got ready for an evening hosted by the Tucson Street Rods. Jerry Dixey is back with our group after a 2 day delay due to some fuel injection problems. We were happy to see him.
Little Anthony’s Diner in Tucson. Good turnout from the local club and our Road Tour members.
Marilyn & Elvis – aka Dorothy & Paul
A shot of a small number of the cars present. Paul is tall & slim but the shadow really stretches him out. It even helped me!
Bill Story’s ’32 Ford.
Tucson Street Rod club. Thanks for a great evening.
