After Cars & Coffee, we headed off to a car show that is put on every year by the local Humane Society as a fundraiser. I heard about the show too late last year, so I really wanted to be sure I made it out this year. Thankfully I did.
It was nice to go out and also visit the cats and dogs, though it sucks that we couldn’t take one home…. There was the sweetest rottweiler, and a couple of very adorable pit bulls — but where we live, those breeds are banned. Yet, somehow, if you lived here before they implemented such rules you’re “grandfathered” in…. Seems unfair that someone who’s lived here for longer than I have can have a rottweiler but I can’t, doesn’t it? Huh. Just my luck I guess, considering how much I love pit bulls. (Sweetest dogs ever. Serious.)
Anyhow, I just have some cars to share with you! Of course, haha.
To kick it all off, I was immediately drawn to this 1972 Rally Sport Camaro. I’m not the best with recognizing which classic American muscle cars are which, but I can almost always pick out the Camaros! I swear I’m destined to own one one day…
This Ford was looking very nice! Great paint.
I was in Rat Rod heaven!! I really, really love Rat Rods — the style is just so amazing and, seriously, almost nothing is as low as a great Rat Rod. Sorry kids, these guys have been doing slammed for YEARS before you ever thought it was cool. Just sayin’. This particular one is a Buick build.
Gotta love the epic names of some of these classics, like this 1948 Chevy Stylemaster.
This turquoise 1964 Ford Galaxie hardtop was amazing.
This Chevelle, also from 1964, was packing a supercharger under the hood. Sneaky, sneaky.
A little splash of the modern from this 1994 Toyota Supra.
The purple on this Hudson was amazing.
I have a huge love of the old tail fins that are on classic cars… I find them amazing and a detail you probably will never see again; even if it did come back, it’d look really out of place I think. However, they’re perfectly at home on this classic Cadillac Coupe De Ville.
Not sure what model this Dodge is, but it was very nice as well.
A Ford Coupe — Always entertained by how it is literally a Ford Coupe. Haha.
Going back even further is this Ford Model A from 1930.
Not everyone wanted to make a donation to be in the show, either that or, like us, they had other commitments and couldn’t stay the entire four hours of the show. Either way, there were cars like this Hot Rod parked along the street and I had to get a photo of this one!
Another Rat Rod rolling in… Love it love it love it.
Again with a splash of the modern — a brand new Camaro ZL1. If you’re not familiar with the ZL1, think of what ZR1 means to the Corvette and you get the idea. (The ZR1 is the only Corvette that out-muscles this Camaro, at least from GM.)
Finally, I took the most photos of any of the cars at the show of this Chevy-based Rat Rod. The details were just amazing! Not only the bullets used, but the headlights were supported by bent wrenches and, yes, those are camshafts supporting the “front bumper.” Way freaking cool if you ask me.
