Brian, I love the color of the Mustang in the first photo.  We used to have a '67 Corvette Convertible Stingray that color when I still lived in NYC.  We sold it when baby #1 came along because it didn't really fit a car seat!

Hi Brian...good to be able to talk to you!

I think my Dad had a 52 Chevy. That car looked awfully familiar!

Jeannie, I like the color of the Mustang, too. I remember that dark red (maroon?) color of the Corvett Stingrays. I had a bright red 1966 Stingray myself with a white convertible top! Fastest car I ever owned...

Hi Joan, that Chevrolet is one of my favorite cars, too.  My father was an Oldsmobile man, but the Olds was built on the same chassis as the Chevy.

Brian,

I always enjoy reading your posts about car shows so much....I'll pass this one along to my Dad too, just as I have your previous ones.

Beautiful photos and it looks like you had a beautiful day for the show. Seeing the people in shorts makes me long to have summer back.  We're at the point of winter jackets here...

Hi Jo,

It's always nice to see your comments!  It's getting colder here, too - heavy jackets needed early in the morning, usually warming up in the afternoon -

Those are some sweet rides!  I grew up not too far from there.  I still miss it sometimes.

Keith, they are definitely sweet rides.  It was a beautiful day for a classic auto show.

Brian - A friend of mine built a 1934 Ford from a kit so we go to car shows to see all the others on display. We love it.

Suzanne, I have a lot of respect for anyone who can build a real car from a kit!  As a kid I built many model autos from kits because I loved the classic cars.

Brian,

It brings back such memories.  My first car was a 1964 Chevy Impala convertable.

Love the 'vettes.  :-)

Hi Brigita,

I love the 'Vettes, too - I've owned 2 in the past.  My first car was a 1964 MGB!
