With sunny and 80 degree weather I was looking forward to a full parking lot of vintage Fords mixed with other classics. That did not happened.
It is pretty clear that there is a generation shift going on. This very established meet get smaller for every year that goes by.
I hate to say it but the think the ’32 Ford generation is dying off and it is being replaced with something else like muscle cars. Everybody want to drive what they drove in high school. Well, anyone that drove a thirties car in high school is pretty old by now.
Having said that, there were some nice cars to check out:
This owner of this1936 Ford encurages passerby folks to help peel off the old red paint. Maybe one day it will be all black again.
A few nice hot rods were present like this cool fenderless and radically chopped 1933 Ford coupe.
Looks good coming or going.
1954 Ford convertible. How to cruise in style.
Yup, they don’t make emblems like they used to!
Buick Riviera cruising by…one of the best looking Buicks…evar!
I don’t normally like stationwagons but this makes me want one!
How refreshing! A well used un-restored 1955 T-bird. This car had a nice rebuilt engine but the owner had resisted the typical restoration. The car is very straight but shows signs of years of use.
It is clear that the owner freshened up the engine and we approve!
I guess it’s been a while but I just realized how small the 1964 Ford Fairlane is. The car is just right if you ask me.
Doug Grande’s 1930 Ford Roadster hot rod.
1930 Ford hot rod interior.
1930 Ford Hot Rod rear detail.
1936 Ford truck
Let’s round this report off with a very nice 1963 Ford Galaxie convertible.
