TV Tommy Kujava said that this month’s Garage Session was in Pulaski, Wis. So I headed up there and the GPS wound up leading me right thru town and out the other end. So, I kept going about another three miles until the sign said I was in Chase. I never knew there was a Chase, Wis., and I certainly had no idea that’s where I’d wind up.
Tommy doesn’t know I was the first one who arrived. Neal Berzowski didn’t know that either, and he was the host. I got there at 5:30. I saw the Henry J in the driveway and I saw other cars at the house across the street and the house across another street from that one. But it was apparent I was early, so I ran back to Pulaski and picked up some goodies to donate to the party.
When I got back there were six or seven cars parked at one place or another. They included Tommy’s ’48 Dodge three-passenger coupe with its purple paint and yellow flames. Tommy runs a big Mopar HEMI under the hood, so the old Dodge can really get out of its own way.
Pretty soon, more cars came. Before long there were 40-50 car guys hanging out at the three homes. Some checked out the hot rod that Neal is building – a ’46 Ford convertible. Others were more interested in the Novas across the street or the other neighbor’s Mustang. There was also a Camaro racing car to check out and a rusty 1950 GMC on a car hauler.
Now I’m looking forward to the next Garage Session in the middle of September at car show promoter Joe Konkel’s automobilia and sign collection.
