The Punta Gorda Historical Society is raising funds to move a house to our history park for use as a hands on museum for kids. The local chapter of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America kindly sponsored a car show at Muscle Car City, a real museum of hot cars here in Punta Gorda. The cars on show were eclectic ranging from Model A Fords to a 1931 Alfa Romeo to more muscle cars and corvettes of various vintages. Not all of them were restored though. My favorite shot from the day was this rusting tailgate on a pickup truck ready for restoration.
I thought some of the contrasts were interesting. For instance, the difference in the interior treatment of this 50s American car and a Rolls Royce of the same vintage.
These and a few more shots from the show are at the PGHS events page. I always like to check out the Street Rods so here is a final shot.
I was actually surprised at the number of classic cars I had owned. Unfortunately, I never waxed the engine compartment and traded them all in on my next car. I guess that’s what makes the survivors classics 🙂
Looks like the Benefit Car Show was another awesome Punta Gorda event. Thanks for sharing your shots.
