What do I like about classic car shows? They turn back time. And McKinney’s July 4th Classic Car Show did just that. Here are a few pics along with a big high-five to the participants, the show-goers, and The City of McKinney for putting together a nice event on our nations birthday. Enjoy!

From the texter to the paper reader to the smoker to the drinker to the chick doing makeup to the who-knows-what. If you’re thinking about taking the two-wheeler out for a spin you better put your head on a swivel. Driver distractions are aplenty.
The McKinney, Texas lifestyle lends itself to biking because we live in a great place and we’re active folks. But be careful – danger lurks. In 2011 there were 677 reported pedal-cyclists (bikes with a pedal) fatalities nationwide and 48,000 injuries according to the NHTSA.
