Hot Rods & Customs at Cars in the Park, Saturday, August 20

DSC_0123p Let's start with this glorious 1951 Custom Chevy Pick Up. Here are the facts gleaned from the matching sign propped up against the back passenger tire (that's the sharp-looking shape you can see sticking out from the right side of the truck): Blown 355 C.I. Small Block Chevy, Richmond Super T10 4 Speed, Bustom Chassis, Heidt's Independent Front Suspension, Ford 9" 4 Bar Suspension, Fiberglass by Shaw's Fiberglass, Paint by Gary Crisp, Upholstery by Custom Upholstery, Design by Alan Shaw of Shaw's Fiberglass, and Custom Built by Randy's Rod & Custom. A wonderful couple owns this beauty. My enjoyment of it brought big smiles to their faces. DSC_0130p Brilliant flames everywhere.

What beauties!

We are on the road from Ohio to Florida. Yesterday we saw tens perhaps more than 100 historical cars on the road. While stopped at a rest stop we saw several and I got some pictures that I'll have on my blog later. I understand they were all on the way to a show in Gatlinburg, TN. There were some really fabulous OLD cars from the 30's at the rest stop.
