    Went to a car show on the 4th. Wasn't the one I wanted to go to but I wasn't getting information for the one I wanted to attend except they were having it the 4th.

    This show normally draws 350 to 400 cars fron the mid 1920's to 2018 models and even European cars.

    A few Buicks attended, Not one GS to be seen. Several Riv's.


    This Special needed the out side feather edges for doors and quarters.

    This one I would have hated to pay the rechromeing fee.

    A oldie but goody also fitted up as a gangsteer car. Nope didn't get pictures of the tommy guns proped on the right side running board.

    There were a few other cars I was able to take pictures of before I needed shade and water.

    Our right hand neighbour's shared our sun conphy and talked about their GTO.

    I spent a lot of time in the sun talking to this fellow who owned the Oldsmobile. He grew up in my home town 10 years ahead of me. We knew a lot of the same familys and places.

    I have always had a soft spot for Old's Cutlass, the Surpreme is even better.

    Weird and really odd. I have seen a lot of rat rods that were weird but this one is the wildest one ever.

    I have a good friend liuves in Maine and says lots of tracked trucks and SUV's there. Says timber cruisers use them all winter long.

    Back to some thing more on the normal side. A very nice Ford Panal truck.

    Not a lot of these around at shows I attend.

    Is rare to go to a car/truck show and not see several 3100's. But this one caught my eye because of the quarter windows, just don't see those. Only one at a show I have seen.

    His friend owned this street rod. I liked the colors.

    [​IMG]


    Now I do not normally take pictures of 55 thru 57 Chevys, Mustangs, Camoro's, and Chevells or Novas Just to many at shows.
    I liked the colors on this Nomad and the Nomad isn't like the Belairs.

    Really a rare sight for me is this Plymouth Pick up truck.

    About a month ago I had a fellow try to pawn off a Javlin as a AMC AMX. Had to tell wife with no example How I knew he was full of BS.

    So I tell her the AMX is a true 2 seat AMC car and the Javlin is longer and has a back seat.

    His ugly color Packard. and Her nice color Packard.

    Nice 1953 Ford was for sale. I felt it was ruined as it sat and wouldn't buy it as is.

    Plymouth had some nice looking cars in ther mid 1960 thru the late 1970's. this Satalite is one such.

    [​IMG]


    Vettes Are another Chevy i do not take pictures of unless they have some thing that catches my eye like the pastel green paint on this one. The shade doesn't help it to so very well how ever.

    I have a friend in Maine who told me that there a lot of pick ups and SUV's in his area that timber crusiers use in the winter.
