Talking Week end of car shows.

Started the week end out on Friday evenin with the down town evening car show in Davison Michigan. It was reported that 297 cars were there From a 1919 Model T to a New 2018 Ford GT 40

We didn't set up any shows for Saturday because the weather forecast was calling for rain. Our area didn't recieve more than a short sprinkly about 9:30 AM.

Sunday we drove to Clinton Township for a car show at the K of C hall. Not a huge turn out only about 125 cars and bikes showed up.
Some really nice cars were on display. How ever I had for got to put the SD card in the camera and It doesn't have a internal memory.

We took home the Peoples choice trophy our first big trophy.

Monday morning we got up before the birds and drove to Climax Michigan for the founders day car show. Well over 350 cars spread over about 2 acreas of parking lot tree covered picnic area and the schoold sports complex.

It was hot where every you were parked. Yes even the shade area was hot but those who set up on the asphalt parking lot had the worst. We set up in a grassy area near the base ball diamonds. We had bought a shade canophy last summer so we made our own shade. A fan would have been nice how ever.

We got the farthest traveled plaque.

You got up early so you could reach climax first?

You should know by now you can't come here, and talk about cars without pictures.

Your post is bad, and you should feel bad.

I didn't do the pictures because I had gotten short on time. I don't do pictures like done on that Merc either.

Our travel farthest plaque.



A few tractors parked in the shade after the parade to buy a burger from the food truck. I also like tractors but most ofl mine are red and yellow.




A TR4, My brother in law had always wanted one till they built the meita? See the clunky truck behind it? I will post a picture of its engine, UNREAL.




A clean sedan.




They gave out a lot of awards and this Willies got one. I don't know who was doing the judgeing or the classes either but some awards didn't make sence to me. This was the only Willies there.




As bugs go I liked this one. Color caught my eye too.

I would guess that the 55 and 56 Ford was a very popular Ford car. See several at any given car show.




Color choice is some thing to discuss.



First Prowler I have ever seen at a car show.




Rat Rod I din't find out the power plant with the turbo.

This Buick Skylark rag top was best in show. I agree except for those stupid looking white fender wells.



​​


I think this Cadillac and the red rag top with black wheel wells looked better.





Getting over heated so a broad shot and some shade and cold bottle of water was in order.

Nice pics! Your 2nd posting of pics, I'd like to see the blown chevy truck....with a camper shell on it (beside the blue/white ford).

That blown purple ChevyII looks like it may have been a 4 door at one time.

Nice looking trophy you won too
