Well it was time for the annual Classics in the Park Car Show. I will go through the more interesting entries in this post. I will then add the whole shooting match to the CARS tab in the Menu at the top of my blog.
Let’s get things started with a couple of works in progress.
This is a cute little delivery van. It has not even been started yet. I think it has potential though.
This is a 1962 International Harvester Metro Mite Delivery Van
Next we have this yellow and white car. I thought it looked great. Then as I was about to walk away I noticed something about the interior. It was not redone yet, just a couple of plastic chairs bolted to the floor. It made me chuckle.
1956 Mercury Montclair
Now let us move on to my favorite pickup truck of the show. It was restored to Awesome. I loved all the wooden parts. Especially the wooden spoked wheel rims.
1926 Dodge Truck
I moved on around the circle of cars writing down the years and makes in my journal first, then I would go back and take the photos. I practically squealed with delight when I got to the next two cars. I mean who doesn’t love this car and it was pink my second favorite color!!
1964 VW Bug
I have loved this car since I recieved a purple toy one for my second birthday. I also had a orange pedal car when I was four years old. That was the only draw back this real one was not purple.
2013 VW Dune Buggy
Then we have a Mystery Car. It had no show entry paper in the window. I then looked for any type of car logo. There were not even any clues in the interior. The only thing I found was Ford on the air filter cover of the engine. Ok, that was a start. From attending other year’s shows it looked to me like it may be a 1940s era and a coupe. I asked the people sitting at the truck next to it if they knew for sure what it was. They were not sure either. The one gentleman said that the owner had been there a while ago, but he didn’t see him now.
The Mystery Car
1940s Ford Coupe?
This one did not have a show entry either. I was pretty sure what it was though. Just could not tell you an exact year.
70s Blue Chevy Corvette
Next we have this very bright orange fellow with a nice bit of artwork on it.
1948 Chevy Delivery Truck
This next one is really neat. It was painted up like the Red Baron’s Plane. The owner talked with me about it. He said that a famous car artist asked to do a drawing of his car. He was passing out baseball cards of the artwork that the artist did. The owner was really honored by this. He said the only draw back was now he couldn’t make changes to the car or else the artwork would just be “just another drawing”. I was about to walk away when I noticed the very cool radiator cap.
1926 Chevy Chopped Model T Coupe
This entry had a matching pop-up camping trailer.
1936 Chevy Truck
1935 Kozy Camper
Another non entry. This was an unknown year black Ford Pickup Truck.
Black Ford Pickup Truck
As my title says there were 66 cars in the park. There were four that were non entry cars. I forgot to take a picture of one of them it was a black and white Chevy. It was similar to a Belair but I was not sure. So that leaves us with 62 actual entries. Only 9 of the entries were return entries from the previous years of 2015 and 2016. I know for sure that this entry was present three of the last 4 years. I did not attend in 2017.
1965 Chevy 10 Truck
All in all I enjoyed my day at the show. I think the number of entries gets more each year. I am glad there were many new cars as well as the return entries.
This last car was not an entry. It was driven and owned by an old coworker from my days at the care home. She is a cancer survivor and this is her custom paint job.
One last thing a couple of the photos are a bit blurry( the interior of the camper was one). I added that to the name of the photo if they were. I had to keep moving around, because my camera gets these rainbow line flares from the sun shining off all that chrome and shiny paint jobs. 😀
