Rexburg Car Show

This tiny pink car was Lola's favorite :)  Okay, I liked it too. 

We went to the car show on Saturday. This was our third year in a row. With it always being the week of Phil's birthday it just seems like it would be a shame to skip it. Of course Phil loves cars (what guy doesn't?) But my favorite thing about the car show is what's going on in that last picture. It's the conversation between Phil and the car owner and it goes something like this...

Phil "Wow! Look at that thing-a-ding 5000 you've got under the hood. Is that the original?"

Car owner "Yeah. But I rebuilt this and that (and who knows what the heck they are talking about...)"

Phil "This is such a sweet car. How did you get a hold of it?"

Car owner.... goes on to tell how they bought it for their wife in '75 or found it in a neighbors barn etc.

Basically, Phil makes the person feel like they have the coolest car in the lot. It's so fun to see the owners light up when they talk about their pride and joy and Phil is totally in his element. Lola got to sit on a sweet little motorcycle, so all in all it was a great day for everyone.
