It's been a long winter...longer than most...and it's still not over.  We've had some good luck as far as weather goes...nothing too crazy blizzard-wise.  I haven't had to use my flame thrower but once this season to melt a pathway to my vehicles. So, we've got nothing to complain about, right?

Turns out...that's wrong. There's plenty to complain about.  And I mean innumerable things.  Bad things.  Our society is tearing apart at the seams as we speak. But there will be LESS to complain about this weekend when there's...


Yes!  That's right!  Something is going on!  An event is taking place!  We can GO somewhere.  A place that ISN'T our basement! And THAT'S something to get excited for!


Get down to the QCCA Expo Center in Rock Island this weekend for the Car, Truck and Bike Show!

There's going to be tons of exhibitors displaying and selling auto related parts and accessories, plus custom cars and trucks and bikes will be there for you to check out.  I don't think you're supposed to touch them though.  Is that a COVID precaution or is that every year?

Plus Friday is military appreciation day where you can get free admission with a military ID.

Cars, truck, bikes, vendors – what more could you possibly want?
