The last car for the year of 2019 was a Halloween themed show. It was a lot of fun! Some people actually dressed for the occasion and so were their cars!
The first car we came across was a 1961 Rambler Wagon, dressed to the nines for the holiday. The owner had told us that he had saved this car from the salvage yard and gave it a new life with an impressive 350 engine. This wagon is stunning all by itself, AND it’s a daily driver! Don’t forget to look at how dressed it is for Halloween!
Next up I did not catch the year of this car but it also belongs to the owner of the ’61 Rambler (above). This car is a very impressive piece of work by a man with incredible mechanical skills! And his vision to build such a car with the help of his wife to get the awesome parts to make such a vehicle is just wicked awesome!!! The patina on this car really stands out. Which makes it hard to miss when driving down the road! Be sure to pay attention to the ” lantern style” taillights that his wife found for him and thought it would be very cool on this car.
Next up, is a 1950 Dodge Wayfarer. This car is VERY desirable with its gorgeous curves and lines, and its generous amount of chrome. It is the perfect cruising car. If I had eight grand, I WOULD drop it down on this car!!!! But yikes! It already looks like it has an owner sitting behind the wheel!
Our next vehicle is an outstanding restoration of a Mercury Montclair probably about 1950. And this owner seems very proud to own this beauty to pay attention to every fine detail. This restoration is impeccable! It helps to look at this car and think about what kind of style and beauty was produced in the fifties! And the simplicity of the technology of the cars in the fifties and how you don’t need a certified technician or a computer to fix them!
Our next find is a 1970 Chevrolet 3/4 ton truck that I have seen at another car show the year before last, after spotting this one at the other show I fell in love with it so much, I actually put it as my screen saver on my desktop computer! This time I noticed that the owners were actually sitting with it. I had commented to them about it being on my screen saver and if they ever want to give it to someone or sell it, to please call me right away! I would love to add this truck to our family of vehicles. The owners were thrilled about my love and desire for their truck!
Next up, a fabulous 1957 Ford Fairlane Skyliner! This is quite a piece of custom work that this owner has done to this classic Ford. It even has my “mummy” as a passenger in the front seat, with her brunet hair and her sunhat. As I said about the story of the Mercury Montclair, it still gives me a big smile on my face to appreciate the vehicles from the fifties because of the talent and the skills the designers put into each and every car and the simplicity to work on each one is so MUCH easier than today’s cars!
Our next ride is a 1929 Model A Ford. What a stunning job this owner has done on this beautiful Ford Model A! From the taillight to the headlight, every little detail is perfect!
Up next, is quite the show stopper! Everybody was stopping at the show to see what this one was. Now, at first glance, for me, I thought it was a Coyote from the late-seventies but if I recall people were saying it was a Porsche 917. Because it had a Porsche platform but this car was getting looked at by SO MANY people, I couldn’t get any closer to it than what you can see in the pictures. If you see it driving on the streets, from this car guy’s point of view, it is definitely a head-turner!!!
