We won't see you in Quincy...
The Club voted to skip our annual banquet in Quincy, Il this year. The facility we used in the past is not available this year. The entire complex is being remodeled and that room will not be completed in time for our event. Soooo.... we've decided to do something early next year in the St. Louis area. The Club will still attend the Fall Color Run & Car Show.

Just like Robert's Picnic in Louiville, KY, Bill and Kim host an annual back yard car show and picnic. JUSTUS Prez Peters and Willie Wilson made the trip to Platte City, Mo with a minor incident along the way. Prez Peters managed to back into Willie's grill somehow and repairs had to be made en route. You can see the damage in one of the pictures. On the "upside", it's always a pleasure to enjoy the hospitality of other Street Rod Clubs, just as other enthusiasts are always welcome on our home turf. Take a look at the pictures...

Fellow Club member, Elvis Fantroy, driving his 1939 Chevy sedan, "Ms Daisy", won a trophy in his class at the Easter Car Show last Sunday in Forest Park. Elvis won in the Horseless Carriage part of the show. This is the first time a Just Us Car has placed in the upper level car show.
A special report... Club President, Steve Peters, has just safely returned from a "solo" trip to Dallas Texas in his 1938 Pontiac 2 door sedan. The "Rat", as it's affectionately known, made the trip with out major problems. Rumor has it he had to leave the car title with some Mexican loan sharks in order to get enough money for gas to make the trip back home.

Fellow club member Barry Seelig's son, Jeff Seelig, is an aspiring automotive writer.  He's already been published. Jeff was in Japan just before the earthquake. His blog contains some pretty good pictures of what it looked like at the time.

Club Members met at Howlin Wolf Garage for their monthly meeting, to help with the bus, and to get their picture taken with their street rods.  The site has a new photo section documenting some of our fine machines.  We hope to eventually get a picture for every member.  Click on the thumbnail to check out the group picture.

The March issue of "Street Scene", (Street Rodding's original news monthly magazine) honored Just Us Car Club member Rashaaad Lurk.

In it they have a column titled "29 Below". It recognizes New street rodders who are under the age of 29 years of age. The youngest member of our club, Rashaad Lark who is twenty years old, is featured in the March 2011 issue on page 123. They only feature 4-5 cars in each issue.

This is a first for our Club and is a testament to his building ability. The picture was taken last year in Oklahoma City at the Southwest Nationals. That was the "maiden" voyage for the car. It had never been more than a few miles from home before. He gained a lot from the construction experiences of fellow Club members and particularly his Grandfather, Club Treasurer, John O'Neal. The car made the trip down and back error free.
