Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!

Hot Rods & Classic Cars

Hot Rods and Classic Cars

And some of the awesome Car Shows of Summer

Every Saturday morning, just about a mile from my home, hot rods, classic cars, and muscle cars gather for possibly the biggest and best weekly car show and cruise around, Donut Derelicts. People bring their cars from miles (even counties) around to take part. You can read more about this here.

But summer brings some extra special once-a-year shows to our area. Since building and restoring Hot Rods and Classic Cars is Luke’s line of business, we go to these great shows and have a wonderful time.

We started our summer car show stops at the legendary LA Roadster Show at the Pomona Fair Grounds.  At this classy event, The L.A. Roadster Club showcases the Original Hot Rod–the 1932 Deuce, along with 1928 to 1934 hot rod Roadsters, plus rows of specialty cars, coupes, sedans, woodies and wagons ranging from 1910 to 1975. This annual Father’s Day weekend event is a fundraiser to benefit worthy non-profit organizations. Here are some of the cars we saw…

Next on our list was the 75th Anniversary of the 1940 Ford, at the Forties Limited of Orange County‘s 39th Annual Forty Ford Day at La Palma Park in Anaheim. This show celebrates the 1940 Fords, but you can find other cool street rods and classics there as well…
