Wanda Jackson at the 2012 Lone-Star Round-up!

Posted by drew On May - 11 - 2012

I will apologize to our loyal readership for the belated nature of this story. It’s been a few weeks since the actual concert. I recently got married and went on my Honeymoon. With all of the build-up, planning, and aftershocks, I ‘m still playing catch-up.


This years Lone Star Round-up happened the weekend after my Honeymoon. As it is, I missed the entire first day of the festival due to driving back from New Orleans. Getting back home to Austin, Texas late Friday. My new wife, Jamie Bahr and I woke up the next morning, surprisingly refreshed from our long trek back home. “Wanna go see Wanda Jackson at the Round-up, this afternoon” I mumbled. We were still snuggling at this time. But there wasn’t much of debate on if this was a good idea or not. Pretty soon we were heading out, spirits high

Selling from the back of our van, super relaxed!

"No no, baby is not for sale!" Photo by Baldcat

It was a lot of fun to sell our stuff at the Cruise Inn car boot sale. Selling from the back of our van, nice people, great atmosphere, good music and nice sunny weather. Super relaxed!’ Diego van Uden said. Diego and his wife Sue (and their baby) sold 1950s goodies. ‘We actually never do this. Yes, once at the Rythm Riot in England. On sunday morning there was an inside flea market where sold some clothing. We mainly a bit of vintage and a bit of vintage-reproduction, shoes, hats and news boy hats. Nobody bought my Mares wetsuit whilst diving season is coming up.
The sales at the Cruise Inn car boot sale went rather well. Everything was low-priced. That helps. Allthough I’d rather packed two bags less when we went home. But we’re not complaining. Thanks to my love (Sue) we’ve sold a lot. She’s got feeling for presentation and always has a good chat with everyone.

The car boot sale at the Cruise inn was super. I hope more car boot sales will follow.’

Viva Las Vegas: the hottest cars

Posted by Dee-Ann On May - 1 - 2011

At the parkinglot of Viva Las Vegas 2011 the proud owners of  the hottest cars showed off, and they had the right to. I could not decide on which I liked the most. But I don’t think it’s about deciding, it’s about feasting your eyes on all those beauties. I made a small selection of the ones that caught my eye. I’m a girl so don’t expect me to tell you all the details. Just enjoy.

I think for cars, red is like blonde for women.
Sandpapered gives it a rough and vintage look.

Green and gold car. The golden pattern is unique.

Lonestar Round-up 2011

Posted by drew On April - 13 - 2011

I was pulling double (maybe even triple?) duty this year at Austin’s annual celebration of sex, hot rods, and rock ‘n’ roll.  I was there to help promote my own event, the Spring Shock Hop.  I was also there to observe the yearly insanity and report it back here at Rockabilly Online. This year being the ten year mark, made my trek through the cars and the carnage a nostalgic one.  I remember when they could fit the whole Roundup in a High School foot ball stadium.  Now it’s grown into something that rivals even the mighty “Viva Las Vegas” out west.  As a Texan, it’s hard for me not to be proud.
