Lot Full

That's the sign that greeted any latecomers to the monthly Guptill's car show. There was lots of pent up demand and enthusiasm that night because the last two shows were rainy. Monday night could not have been nicer, but unfortunately a bit too hot for us to take the '39 Plymouth out in rush hour traffic. There were so many vehicles in the parking lot and field, that they had to open up some of the spectator parking for show cars as an overflow area. There was definitely a record setting attendance, with both cars and spectators. 

Here's a very small sampling of what we saw:
Fabulous flames and ghost skulls.

An early 50's Lead Sled ragtop complete with lake pipes.

The only rat rod that we saw there.

Here's a beautifully restored oddity...a 1950 Singer from England.

A French Citroen ambulance, complete with stretcher in the back.

This is an air cooled 1923 Franklin with spoke wheels.

Gotta love the fins on this 1958 DeSoto.

More exotic fins on this 1959 Chevy Impala bubble top.

A beautiful combination of a VW transporter and a three wheel Messerschmitt.

Messerschmitt made aircraft, hence the pilot's canopy.

This is an unrestored Auburn two door sedan with wood spoke wheels.

An air ride 1950 Nash Ambassador sitting on the ground. It had all Corvette running gear and engine.

"The Last Ride" This C-cab T-bucket was styled like a hearse.

This 1960 Cadillac Deville was one year different than the one my family went to California in when we we kids. My brother liked to sleep on the tray in the back window!  

This is the pneumatic system for the suspension on the Nash.

This old school T-bucket was powered by a Y-block Ford V-8.

Under the left taillight is how you fill this early 50's Caddy.

A 1939 art deco inspired Ford Coupe

My favorite of the show and pretty in blue and pink...everywhere. 

There was so much to see, it was hard to take it all in. Hopefully in September our '39 will be part of the show.
