the great labor day cruise

I've never seen so many vintage cars in one place… over 1000 cars at todays show… unbelievable variety and great fun!

The cheapest car we saw for sale was $50,000 and a 1954 Corvette was going for $165,000… and they were DRIVING it!!

Any owner worth their salt was dressed to enhance their car.

A HUGE percentage (like maybe 30%) of the cars were in a more original/ less restored condition. It seems to be the direction that vintage car collecting is going in this area. Any other areas noticing that??

The low riders had hydraulic systems to lift them up when they were driving around.

Conservative estimate that about 30% of the cars were driven by women.

Cars kept circling the fairgrounds… everyone was having a good time!

Impressive adaptation for hands only driving.

Cars were not the only attraction… look out beautiful lady, here comes another admirer! ;-)

One of many unusual rides!

Fabulous subjects, colors, clarity, compositions/framing! The woman in #7 looks like a giant, next to that ulltra-low truck & man in wheel chair. Love the "bubble-gum" colored "Caddie"in #1. #9 is my fave! What a unique rig! Great show!
