Success! My trip from Sacto to Pomona had been uneventful - no troubles with the trailer, and my cattywampus hillbilly load of Crosley carcasses hadn't shifted at all. I even found the NHRA Museum with a minimum of wrong turns, making me glad I'd finally activated Google maps on my phone.
After having such a great time at last summer's Great Pacific Northwest Microcar Show I swore that this was the year I'd make it to the OTHER western-state microcar meet, the Southwest Unique Little Car Show. SWULCS has been running for 34 years (!) with locations rotating between Arizona, Nevada and California. With this year's meet scheduled for Pomona - in the parking lot of the NHRA Museum no less - there was no excuse to miss it!
I spend somewhere near 40% of my waking hours obsessing over old cars. Usually, this obsessing revolves around an improbable American micro car from the midcentury period-- the Crosley. My fascination began with a quest to strip down my life by driving the world's simplest car.
Turns out that nothing is as simple as it seems.
