HRPT Day 4: Gulfport, MS to Baton Rouge, LA

Pinterest Google+

Our last official day brought rain as we traveled to Baton Rouge. Waiting out the storm in the Kangaroo across the street from the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, we discovered a rather tasty hot dog bar. Not only that, but a full frozen yogurt bar with all sorts of toppings! Gas station food can be questionable, but this place was a pleasant surprise.

After the rain, we drove into the Expo Center and perused the rows in the steamy heat. Here are some of the highlights:

An old Mini Cooper pickup truck!
Yes, rust is a color.

We hung around to watch some cars get dyno’d –

We really enjoyed meeting Larry and Lisa Whitehead of Buda, Texas. They are part of a great car club that meshes their passion for cars with philanthropic efforts for the youth of their community. More on them later, but here’s a peek at this wonderful couple with Lisa’s 1960 Parkwood wagon:

And their car club sticker on the Blasphemi!


Speaking of the Blasphemi – after days of missing them at the previous locations we finally caught up with the Roadkill guys and Blasphemi – their 700 horsepower Hemi 1955 Chevy Gasser.
