A Few Brave the Cold for Axes and Axles

As I mentioned in the Upcoming Events post from last week, I did not attend any  shows this weekend because of the Ohio State vs Penn State game, and family visiting from out-of-town specifically for the game.

Speaking of Ohio State vs Penn State, can you believe that game!  It will go down as one of the "classics" ever played in Ohio stadium.  My wife and I almost left after the fumbled exchange between Barrett and Dobbins at the 13 minute mark of the 4th quarter.  We decided to stick it out to the end, and boy am I glad we did.

Even though I was unable to attend any shows this weekend, my good friends Jeff and Pam Shankle along with 23 other "hearty" soles braved the cold temperatures on Sunday to attend the Axes and Axles Firefighters Car Show in West Jefferson, Ohio.  Jeff and Pam were kind enough to send me some photos from the show.

The show was held at Ann & Tony's Restaurant in West Jefferson, and hosted by the Jefferson Township Fire Department.

I recognize a few of the cars from the show.

Here's Mike Gibson's 1947 Buick Super convertible.

And Frank Deering's "Proud To Be An American" Corvette.

I think I see Quentin Sayer's and Craig Grunkemeyer's  Corvettes in this group.

The Shankle cars.

You know it's cold when you have to break out the gloves and blanket.

A few more cars and trucks from the show.

Nothing like an award to warm you up.
