CARS, CARS, CARS

Prescott's Watson Lake park was the scene of a classic and antique car show today.


There were cars and trucks of every era on display.



That's a beautifully-restored Model A Ford on the left.


There was an ancient fire truck or two.



One jalopy even had a car-hop's tray with a fake cheeseburger and ice cream soda at the driver's window.


Some of the paint jobs were extravagant.


Some even a little bizarre.


This British MGB proudly sported the Union Jack on its hood.


There was a very old racing car.


And a much newer car with a famous name.

But for my money, the greatest draw had to be this old Reo.


This beauty came from the second motorcar company of Ransom E. Olds and bore his initials.  The company last manufactured automobiles in 1936.  Its name is most commonly found these days in crossword puzzles.

A great day for viewing some marvelous cars.

  1. Like to see the engines on some of those, The TR in particular. They had some odd engines.
    Nice pics.

  3. Whoa! Love these, especially paint job on the jalopy with the car-hop tray and the old Model A. I was on my way to posting about my Cars and Coffee day, but you beat me to it. Kudos! :)

  5. What a beautiful collection of oldies. One of my favorite things to do with the family is go to an old car show.

  6. Many of these cars are driven to the car shows. Since safety glass didn't start being used untill 1928 and really didn't get popular until the mid-30s; do people committed to originality keep the plate glass windshields in the very old cars or exchange them for safety glass? Just curious.
