So some of you may know this, but I will be going to Ducktail Run next week.
What in the world is Ducktail?? I am not supprised if you dont know, i didnt know until two years ago when my boyfriend took me to the annual show.
 Ducktail is a Car show [ Click ] in Gas City, Indiana.
 Its a four day event starting with "Early Duck Cruise-In" on Sept 22, next thursday and lasting until the 25th. It is HUGE! It is one of the largest car shows in Indiana, and possibly the midwest.

Me:  Why is it called Ducktail?
BF: ducktail was a "cool" haircut in the 50's,
 the show supposed to be classic hot rods
 and mixed with james dean rod run which is home for all mercury customs

You will see ducks everywhere, including people dressed up! 
Like any car show there are contests: 

Best Car Name

Best Neon Lights

Best Idle Drags

Best Flame Throwing

Best Muffler Rapping

Best License Plate Name

Best Duck Display

Chrome Duck Award

So with a place like that I could not pass up the opportunity to make some scarves. I am sure that most of you have seen my first scarf that I made, Classic Cars. What you may not know is that the four cars [painted twice for 8 cars on the scarf] are my bf's family's cars and they take them to shows. 
Ok so i think you know where i am going with this.
