Went to the local car show yesterday here...a few samples of the cars that were on hand.

The quality of the cars just seems to be getting better and better all the time.

Just in case anyone thinks I ignored Scoggy....I didn't. Sent him an email. We all need to wish him well as he has just had a turn for the worse. No details, but I'm quite sure he will be better soon.

The third and forth ones are my favorites so far. I had a 57 Chevy but it was a panel.

We wish Scoggy our best.

BEST WISHES Scoggy!

Those old cars are amazing. The things are everywhere around here and the owners use any excuse they can find to roll out those beauties. Always enjoy seeing them.

I was fortunate enough back in those days to own a few nice cars myself but I didn't have the intuition to hang on to any of them. Most of them (I had back then) are now classics. I could kick myself.

They had a section just for 5-6-7 Chevy's. Some real beauties there.

I had a '55, and a '57 wagon, never had a '56. Number one son Dennis had a '56.

Sorry about the duplicate pic of the cab unit getting in there somehow.

Any guesses as to what this car is? It's the first one I have ever seen of this marque in person. An absolutely perfect frame off restoration of the body.

The head lights and grill look like a Buick but the windshield looks like a Cord.

My brother-n-law has a body shop and is into classic Chevys. He has two 55's, a 56, and two 57's. He also has about 75 doors for 55, 56, 57's. I think he is trying to corner the market on classic Chevy doors.

One of my old favorites was my 65 Mustang GT Fastback. This thing was (from the factory) a 289 hi performance engine with a 4v and 4-speed Hurst linkage. It had the "Pony" interior and factory dual exhaust. Five-gauge dash with built-in tac, competition orange with dual black stripes along the lower panels and a wide black stripe over the hood and top with a black louvered rear window. The dealer installed Cragar mags for me as an enticement to make the purchase. I think I paid $5200.00 for that sucker drove it out of the showroom myself. I would have been about eighteen years old at that time. That beauty may have also been a "labeled Limited Edition" can't remember for sure. Don't see that many fastback Mustangs these days and I have never seen a duplicate tricked-out from the factory like the one I had.

Ah-h-h...the good old days.

I loved the fast backs, I didn't and still don't like the regular old stangs, I had a couple of the regular and just didn't like the look. I wish I had some of the old cars I had back in the 60s and 70s, I was mostly into Chevys but had Mopar, Ford and others.

Jim, that car is a Graham. I didn't see the owner there, otherwise I would have pounced on him with a ton of questions. The entire car was simply flawless.

I always thought they were called a Graham Paige - if I have that spelling right. This one just had Graham on the center chrome strip down the front of the grille.
