Default Really Big Show

This weekend was the Back to the 50's car show. Almost 12,000 cars, 1964 and older. I took only a few pics. Here they are:
I tend to focus on the few hundred cars that aren't "pretty". The 4th pic is a car that went through a fire, burned off a metallic purple paint job.

There is a large variety of cars and I've tried to capture some of that. There's 200 vendors, many dozens of food vendors and a beautiful shaded fairgrounds of 200 acres. If you get there late, like I do you have to park in the vast tarmac area used for the midway during the state fair. That's where I took most of the pics. I built the '31 A Sedan in the '70's and sold it after a couple years. It is almost identical to the way it was built. The son of the guy I sold it to now has it.

Just a couple more. On Saturday there's at least 50,000 people either with their cars or spectating. Many of the cars line up outside the fairgrounds at 3:00 am to get the parking spots they want. Not my style.

E-man, I didn't look under it. Used to get on my hands and knees to look under lots of rods. Not anymore.
47 years this show has been going on and I haven't missed one.
