I was just looking at your photobucket collection, I dig these cars! That motor is so cool.



There were a number of ADs there weren't there! I dug this one.


And speaking of GM Motorama cars, this was one WILD car to actually hit the production line. If I hit the lotto I would have to get one!



GREAT bunch of photos, thanks again for posting them!

Brian

What great photos! We don't have that many gassers show up at a 1,000 car cruise in! Our little group of four friends are usually the only gassers that show up.

I loved this sedan delivery, except for the hockey Camaro wheels..



I would drive this '58 everyday...



Styling idea for the rear of Johns convert...



Tall T debate ...



Took this pic of a nice '38 like mine ( I wouldn't have the same "Salmon" color) and then I noticed the registration number on the sticker...

I don't know what kind of money I would have to make to put $200k in a car, ANY car.

I sure do like to look at them though. But what is cooler is when it's built by a guy in his garage and it looks that good for a LOT less money, those are the ones I really like to see.

A 1953 Buick Skylark. It was a little smaller than the regular Buick Line.I could've bought one of those in 1963 for $2500. That was a lot of money in 63

I really like the flames on that truck. I taped out flames on my truck a couple of times but never found the ones I really wanted, those look perfect if you ask me. My personalized plates on it read "Flame 48" yet it never had flames!

Those pictures from BTT50's are great.

Did it rain much during the day Friday or Saturday ?

. How in the world did you get pictures without people all around the cars ? It's usually so crowded that it's almost impossible to get the shot I'm after.

I missed the show again this year. Sometimes Life just gets in the way.

My wife and I are going next year....no matter what comes up !!

Too big???

Well, actually, at 10,000 cars its getting almost too big to see them all in a weekend - esp if you want to do an "in depth look" at a some of them.

However, I do know some folks who think 100 cars is too big. One of the local shows (Langley Days) goes about 2,000 to maybe 3,000 cars and a lotta guys don't go because its too big.

Different strokes......

It stopped raining just as I got there at 6:15am Friday and didn't rain again until around 8:00pm. That's when the wind downed even more trees/limbs and damaged/destroyed a few vendors rental tents. REALLY nasty weather.
Saturday it rained overnight and into the early morning and then cleared up but stormed again early this morning and rained until around 10:00am. I went to the swap meet at 12:30 to meet a guy I bought some parts from and pick up my english wheel from the vendor in the Grandstand. The sun came out around 1:00pm and it got HOT and HUMID with all the standing water everywhere.

Many people were considerate about waiting for me to get a pic but a few, I had to ask to please stop walking or move. One guy walked right in front of me while I was holding my camara and took a picture like I wasn't even there...

Gotta just go without her. I'm gonna try to plan a route 66 tour next year and my wife won't go with. She just said "have fun"... 2015 I'm gonna try to plan on doing the Power Tour. It ends in the Wisconsin Dells next year and should start from there in 2015. Too close by to not go on that one.

The Fairgrounds encompasses 320 acres of which approximately half gets covered with cars during this event. Yes, it IS big and requires a LOT of walking to take it all in in one day. If a person were to split it in half and take 2 days, it's not so bad. Also, many of the national vendors are here for the 3 days and you can see their products and talk with factory reps. Unfortunately, they don't offer much in the way of "show discounts" because they don't want to undermine their distributors....

In contrast, Car Craft Nationals that will be in the same venue next month only gets 5-6,000 cars and only rents about a third of the property for it.
