2012 Silver City Shakedown

Sometimes driving a 70-year-old car can be transcendent joy, where all you care about is the rumble and the perfume of hot metal. Then there are other times where you tense and listen to every rattle, expecting to be stranded on the side of the road at any minute. The run to the second annual Silver City Shakedown started as the latter, with an idle problem. Once that was sorted, it was a great blast through back roads for half the trip to Meriden for the East Coast Nomads.



The Shakedown really has become the kickoff to the season around here. It is a chance to dust off some cobwebs and can even be the maiden voyage for some new builds. Th Others CC members are strict about the rules for this traditional-only pre-65 show, so the quality of cars that attend is really high. This is definitely one of those shows where our cars are not the nicest there.

And it has a fancy suspension setup

My favorite of the show was this survivor truck
