Benefit Car Show

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 🙂

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
