Wilbur Wright part IV
This Chevelle was one of the first cars to register.
This 1970 GTO not only received a Top Ten award, it also took home the trophy for farthest traveled, as it's owner M. Cupp drove over 120 miles from Hamilton, Ohio to be at the show.
Here is the owner of the Dodge that was parked beside Ol' Blue. She seemed to be enjoying the sun and her book more than the show itself.
Like I said in an earlier post, there was a real variety in vehicles that were registered. This late model Ford pickup belonged to the father-in-law of my buddy who owns the '72 Chevelle.
This was probably my favorite car at the show. Not because it's a Chrysler, or a convertible, but because it is a fairly rare car and was very well restored. This 1949 Chrysler Town and Country is owned by P. Niles from New Castle, Indiana. It took home a Top Ten award.
What happened to the creative "art deco" designs of the American automobile? You don't see this kind of craftsmanship and beauty in today's automobiles!
This GTO was one of the last to register. Although I'm not a fan of the color purple, this car was very nicely restored.
