Gal­is­teo, New Mex­i­co held their Wild West Fest recent­ly at the Rodeo grounds. It was in con­junc­tion with a cast­ing call for the remake of The Mag­nif­i­cent Sev­en. Sev­er­al folks showed up in their west­ern garb with the hopes of being an extra or bet­ter in the upcom­ing pro­duc­tion. Inter­est­ing peo­ple watch­ing. There was also a bit of a “show” in the are­na. The over­all tone of that event was a lit­tle too flag-wavy for us so we ducked out the back door. The last few frames were a most remark­able vehi­cle: The Frank­endodge. I believe it may have start­ed out as a ’60s era Valiant but it’s hard to find too many orig­i­nal parts on this baby. Quite a sight.
