Hwy 81, Anderson SC 7.28.2012

Wow what a day. All I had on my mind, after such a long HOT day of taking photos at Southeast Showdown, was food, re-hydrating, and air conditioning.

As I left the motel lobby in search of something quick and easy, my eyes were immediately enticed by a beautiful Cyber Green, ’37 Ford Wild Rod sitting in front of McDonalds, just next door. My thoughts were ” OK, McDoldalds is quick, and I can get a closer look too!”

As I got closer to the parking lot, I realized there were a lot more intriguing vehicles here than just this one. Then it hit me …… “Cruise-In”. Immediately the desperate need for nourishment and rest subsided a bit.  I mean honestly, what’s more important here? Besides it’s not like I can’t eat and rest later, right? I thought I’ll just make a quick run through, take a few pictures, do a little admiring then grab a bite and back to my room for some much needed rest.

So I retrieved my camera and tote from my room and I  headed to the “McDonald’s Cruise-In”.  My little trip to South Carolina for an event coverage, just got even better.  “Bonus!” Kind of  like a two for one. What I did not take into account in this little plan of mine, is the fact that I really like to talk and I love meeting people. Therefore what was  intended for an hour breeze through turned into all evening.

Yet, all is good.  I meet some really wonderful people and saw some gorgeous automobiles. I even managed to get some nourishment in me around 10:30pm and lights out by 11. So, not too bad, Huh?

Look through the book below and check out some of the photos, and if you are ever in the Anderson, SC area the fourth Saturday of the month, you should ride over to McDonalds on Hwy 81 and enjoy the scenery.
