I just did a bucket list item yesterday but we can do two days in a row.
I’m dying to hit a classic car show. My apologies to all of you who take your modern cars to shows. I’m sure they’re great but my heart belongs to the old vehicles. If it has tail fins and lots of chrome or even if it’s not perfect but is pre-1970 with great patina – I’m in.
With all the festivals and events being cancelled this year, I suspect it will be hard to find a good car show in the area this year but we can hope!
The pictures here come from a car show in Logan, Ohio last year. It was a warm, sunny evening and there was plenty to see.
This is from the interior of the car pictured above.
And then there’s this great old Dodge truck and a VW van!
The VW isn’t perfect but I did not care. When it comes to classic cars, it’s easy to forgive flaws because they have great character!
By the way, a car show is a great place to play with your camera. The owner expects people to gawk and take pictures so there’s no judgement. And while you can sometimes hear a great story or two, having others hanging around takes the pressure off of you to visit for too long.
Just look out for all the reflections in that shiny chrome. Sometimes you can capture architecture or another interesting detail. However, if you’re not careful you might bring home images of a stranger’s knee cap or something equally distressing reflected in a wheel.
