"Thank You" one and all for attending the 50th Annual Hanford Vintage Cycle Rally. Once again we were treated mild temperatures and sunny skies, making the weather just right for a great meet. A special "Thanks" to our two largest sponsors that really help make it all happen, Lucas Oil, & Hagerty's Classic Insurance. We so appreciate their generous support and giveaway's. This year's Lucas Oil Show had some great and unusual entry's. Not our largest turnout ever, but the quality of the show entries rival any show around. Hanford has always been the type of show that attracts the guy that self-restored his entry, not a just a collection of "spare no cost" hired restorations. Hanford continues to be the working man's event, grease under the nails, busted knuckles and all with a very limited budget, kind of show. Passion most always trumps dollars, and that was very apparent this year at the 50th annual show.
The swap meet always draws an array of special parts and rolling projects, and this year was no different. Some very good deals found new homes and I hope to see them back at a future show, nicer than when they left.
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of Classic Cycle Events and I am happy to be able to publicly say "Thank You" to some of my many friends that have helped me bring the past 18 events to you. I'm so lucky to have such great friends that have been so willing and helpful year after year at Hanford & El Camino.
So lets all look forward to the 51st Annual Hanford next year, always the third Saturday in May.
Thank You all, Friends Supporters and Participates, I couldn't do it without you. Sincerely, Marshall
