What A Beautiful Day For A Car Show

Last Update: May 14, 2022

I’ve always enjoyed car shows, and today was a beautiful day for one. Our temperature was in the upper 80’s F and the sun was shining. The rain held off on us until the drive home.

Even the local police entered their new Tesla in the show.

Summer is the season for car shows.

Do you ever go to car shows, or may even have a car or cars that you enter?

They sure don’t make them like they used to.

That looks like a fabulous occasion there Cynthia full of beautiful looking vehicles!

I have always loved a good classic or vintage car show... my father restores cars from the 1920's as a hobby and he has some rare beauties hanging around back at the ranch!

I always preferred vehicles from the 50's and 60's myself... but that is a generational thing I'm sure!

I'm sure I'd like to take a stroll through your father's ranch. We always try to go to the local car shows when we can. My husband and I both do a lot of volunteer work for the museum where this one was held, so naturally we had to be there.

I love the old muscle cars of the 60's and early 70's. My favorite car that I've ever owned was a 1971 Mustang Fastback. It had a 351 Cleveland engine and that baby moved! 🏎 I wish I would have never sold it. ☹

Great work on the volunteering there Cynthia!

I have to admit I have never been overly enthusiastic about muscle cars though!

The favourites that I have owned were a rare four door Austin 35, from around 1954, my mini cooper from around 65 and my triumph herald convertible which was from 67!!

Those are pretty cool. Here in the US we don't see too many of them. Great to look at though. 🙂

Sounds like a great day, Cynthia. My dad could look at cars like these and tell the history of them. Gene

My dad was a car buff, and I'm sure that's where I acquired my love of old cars. I know there's some new fancy ones you'll always see at car shows, but I love the history and uniqueness of the older cars.

The black Mercedes shown in the last picture is full of history. The gentleman who brought it had all that information. I love hearing about cars like that. 🙂

You are right, Cynthia! They sure don't make them like they used to! What an excellent day! It's been a while since I went to a car show. I have a 1951 Willys Korean War era jeep that I would enter in a car show, if the opportunity and circumstances ever allow me to do so!

What a wonderful Saturday that you had, my friend!

Now THAT is really cool, Cynthia! I decided to keep mine in its original olive drab since it was an authentic military jeep! It is lacking the old markings though!

I do like the cool paint jobs, but I also enjoy the originals, as they can only be original once.

I know what you mean, Cynthia! I noticed one of the older cars in your pics had rust, etc. on its body. We used to call those "patina cars".

It was listed as a "Rat Rod". It may have looked rough, but they had the engine decked out nice, and very unique. The interior was different as well, but you could tell there was a lot of work put into it.

I thought so, but I could tell just by the wheels that it was very nice, Cynthia!

These are the BEST kinds in my opinion!

This was held at our local museum. All proceeds from the show benefit their not-for-profit organization.

Classic cars, that is fun, used to watch Discovery DMX channel and see the vintage car shows.
It seems that US is the only place where cars appreciate in value.
