Car Show

Saturday I went to a car show and took a bunch of pictures, here are some of them. There are a few more on my flickr. All of these were taken with my digital point and shoot and some editing was done to most in Photoshop for some tweaks to contrast, levels, colors, cropping, etc. There were quite a few people there and I often wasn’t careful or patient enough to wait for a clear shot, so sorry for all of the onlookers included.

A few Corvettes:
63 Vette

Red Vette

There were quite a few street rods, I’d say they made up the majority of cars at the show.

Chevy (I know, probably doesn’t qualify as a rod)

And this was pretty cool, a 1922 Ford Model T

One thing I think is pretty interesting is seeing how cars evolved through the years. Above is a 1922 Ford (and the Willies is a ’22, though it’s really modified). This next one is a 1931 Ford Coupe. It’s obviously been modified, but the basic shape is unchanged and you can see how much has changed in just 9 years…

Anyway, there were some muscle cars and a few other cool older things:

1970 ‘Cuda and a Super Bee (forget what year, 68 maybe?)

(the ‘Cuda is actually my dad’s)

Road Runner

This is an original, though restored and slightly changed, 1 owner car with original motor… rare!

And some current stuff:

Oh, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was there. Sort of.
