Tracy Corvettes GTG.

Tracy Corvettes Memorial Day weekend Get-together.

Joined up with the local Corvette Enthusiasts on Friday night for a burger at Wally's (108 E. 11th St., Tracy). I used to be an IN-n-Out Fan, but these Wally Burgers are really something.

They have this 3 POUND Cheeseburger that you have got to try out sometime ! I'm serious, the hamburger patty itself is One-and-a-Quarter Pounds. Really something. Take your Cholesterol meds along.. lol.

Here are a few pics (Courtesy Chuck).
It being Memorial day weekend and all, there were far fewer people than would normally be expected.

  1. Awesome.

    I would never have the patience to care for the car. I hardly ever wash mine.

  2. Man, I've always wondered, how do they get the cars so glossy and shiny for these car shows.. Whenever I see a restored classic car on the road these days, it always shines brighter than modern cars. Is there some special lotion they use on the paint ???

  3. Well actually classic car and vette enthusiasts that I know go through this ritual to get their cars to show quality.. if you want to shine up your car to "SUPER Glossiness" follow these steps.

    1. Wash car well
    2. use good wahs liquid and make sure the sponge you scrub with is dust and dirt free (no sand, or there will be microscratches)
    3. Dry car with hand, using chamois and superabsorbent cloth, or a blower if you have one..
    4. use an orbital buffer to rub in Meguiar's ScratcheX if you see swirl marks. Remove extra with dry shop cloths.
    5. Apply one coat or two of carnuba wax or Meguiar's wax and then polish with detailing pads.

    :-p

    TADAA !!!!!!!!!!!! Shiny car !
    I usually follow this ritual once a month as do many of my vette enthusiast friends. But if you get lazy, just give it to a good detailing shop and fork over a handful of cash!!

    I always say "Nothing shows love like doing it yourself :-)"
