Memphis Street Rods

Drive Line

The club meeting for September 2023 was held at the Library in Southaven Ms. with 56 members and guests in attendance, Johnny opened the meeting by thanking the guys who provided this month’s food and then welcoming our guests, John Beasley and Shawn Decembrino. Mike (Spanky) Cooper went from visitor to member with it being his 4th meeting in a row. Welcome Mike!

Johnny brought the blue and grey “Memphis Street Rod” shirts back so anyone who didn’t get one at the August meeting could do so. I brought my “MSR” Letterman’s Jacket for everyone to see and will place an order for anyone wanting to order one. Cost of the jackets with embroidery is $285.00 for sizes S to XL. Sizes over that will cost an additional $15.00 and if you want your name embroidered on the front, that will add an additional $15.00. I will bring a sample of the actual jackets in all the sizes to the October meeting so everone who wants one will be able to get the correct size.

Larry Nolan then gave his Treasurer’s report and promised us that even after paying for all the car show stuff “WE STILL HAVE MONEY”

Johnny then reported that have picked up all the goodies to give away at the show and that all the show packets have been stuffed. Remember! Club members are asked to wear either the dark gray “Host Shirts” we used last year or the MSR tee’s, that we just bought, during the event. We ask you to wear them because participants need to be able to identify a MSR club member if they have a question, suggestion or an emergency!

This month’s trivia questions was; of the original Memphis Street Rod founders, who drove a ’34 Chevy Coupe. The correct answer was provided by Buddy Bonner. The answer was Richard Tiebout. Buddy won $20.00

It was also announced that this year we would give out the first annual Bobby Carlock award. Sandra Carlock and her son will pick a car at this year’s show and the award would go to that person’s car.

There was much discussion about the show, the caravan to Riverside, show security and the need for all club members to do their part to make the show a success.

Our next meeting will be October 2nd. We will be back at the library in Southaven.

Money winners for Sept. were: Bill Holt winning $90.00, Frank Strong winning $85.00, Butch Campbell winning $80.00 and the $100.00 donated by George went to Alan Cole!

Prayer Requests

I was great to see Terry Bogue and Dickie Grinder back at this month’s meeting!

Let’s all remember to pray for Sandra Carlock and family as they struggle with their loss.


is the only one I’ve seen eating!” He asked “What is it you are waiting for” She replied “THE TEETH”! A little old couple, holding hands, walked into the McDonalds on a cold wintery night! They looked out of place with all the other young couples with their children. All the younger couples looked at them admiringly and thought “I bet they have been together for 50 years or more.

The little old man walked right up to the counter and placed his ordered, paid and went and sat down by his wife. He had ordered one regular hamburger, and order of fries and a small drink. He unwrapped the burger, cut it in half and divided the fries evenly They each took a sip of the coke and then sat the cup between them.

As the crowd watched, the old man began to eat his burger and fries. The old woman sat and watched her husband eat and occasionally took a sip of the soda. A young man assuming they were poor and couldn’t afford more food walked over and volunteered to buy them another meal. The old man refused saying “we aways share….always have”!

As the young man watched, the old lady still hadn’t eaten a bite. He once again goes and this time asks the old lady if he could buy her a meal. She replies “no thank you” and that they were used to sharing everything together.

As the old man finished eating his food and was wiping his face with the napkin, the young man could stand it no more. Again, he came over and offered to by them some more food. They once again refused. He then asked the lady “Ma’am why aren’t you eating, you said you shared everything, but your husband is the only one who I see eating. She replied, We do share everything, it’s just not my turn to share the TEETH!
