Car Show Photos

I don’t think I’ve ever posted photos the day they were taken. First time for everything, which reminds me of the joke: If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

A local “event venue” hosts a car gathering the second Saturday of every month. The advertised time for the event is 7-10 AM, but if you were to arrive at 6:30, you would not be early. I arrived at 7:05 and struggled to find a place to park my Z06.

I can tell that I am not in the mid-Atlantic anymore. An entirely different class of cars can be seen at events like this here. Without further ado:



This is a 1956 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible with which I was really smitten. Another photo of the Starfire and then photos of other cars:



As you might be able to tell, this is not a stock C1 Corvette. It has the LS7 engine from a C6 Z06 in addition to a custom chassis featuring C4 suspension and brakes. That’s my kind of C1.



The low sun angle in the early morning made taking photographs a little more difficult. In case you don’t know, or even if you do, this is a new generation Toyota Supra.



This is at least the second photo I have taken of a current/3rd generation Ford GT since we moved to Arizona. I don’t think I ever saw one in person in the mid-Atlantic. This car is a contender for the hypothetical Ultimate Garage 3.0.



I like the looks of the C6 Corvette more and more and in this color the car really stands out to me.



I think the current generation Acura NSX is an underrated car and has quite a presence in person for me.

Before I left, I couldn’t resist taking one more photo of this car and now I can’t resist showing that picture.



Oh, how I wish I had room for three or four (or five) more cars! Hope you enjoyed the photographs.

  1. The Starfire convertible is gorgeous! Next time you see the custom C1 try and find out the builder of the car, if it was owner built or what shop.

    Another Second Saturday show is at the So-Cal Arizona Speed Shop down on East McDowell in Phoenix. If you get there early enough Brian and Dave will have Dunkin’ Donuts. More hot rods than your kind of cars but some interesting stuff IMHO. One Saturday, a visitor brought his 60-something Ford Galaxy with a SOHC 427 V-8. There are lots of early morning shows in Arizona. Here in Tucson, the best one is Cars and Coffee up at the shopping center on Sunrise Drive. My grand daughter Ferrari driver wannabe, got to sit in a Ferrari there.


  2. I am a big fan of those 1950’s era convertibles, so that Starfire is my favorite of the cars you feature here. I’m glad you posted a couple of extra images of that beautiful example of Detroit’s craftsmanship.


  3. The Starfire is my favourite also. But, it’s really great to see the mix; I think it’s awesome when you get such a varied collection of vehicles.
