In my last post I mentioned going to several car shows and only sharing pictures from one event. So today, I wanted to share a few pictures from the other car show. This car show was a little smaller but I did manage to get some good shots. All images were processed with Adobe Lightroom 3. There are few that I plan on doing some post processing but right now, I do not have the time.
Monkey’s Pub n Grill Car Show
As I mentioned before, Monkey’s Car Show was a very small show that had maybe ten or fifteen cars. I am not really sure if this car show series is always this small or if it was the last show of the season. But there were some cars from the area I haven’t seen before.
1949 Plymouth Suburban Wagon
This beauty is a custom 1949 Plymouth Suburban Wagon. To be honest, I have never seen one of these before. But since I love old wagons, this is one of my favorites at the show. As you can see, the doors are shaved and its been lowered a little. I can just see this car cruising the Southern California coast with a couple of long boards in the back heading to the beach for a little surfing.
The one thing about these small local car shows is they tend to forget to clean out the interior during the show or even give a quick detail to get the road grime off of them. The interior in this one is clean and looks very good, but the guy left his cooler on the passenger seat and some junk on the floor. But that doesn’t take way from the clean finished look and I love the beer tap gear shifter.
1930 Custom Ford Model A
This is a 1930 custom Ford Model A. This hot rod has a supercharger blower and the engine compartment is all chromed out.This is probably the second or third one of these I have seen in the area.
As you can see, the interior isn’t complete, or is it? If you were to look up (sorry no pictures of the ceiling) you would see that there is not a headliner and it has wooden support beams going across the ceiling. Either way, I Love the limited interior.
1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible
This is a Glaxaxie 500 convertible and you really do not see these cars every day. I have seen Glaxaxie 500s in the past but never a convertible and not any that look this good.
The interior looks good as well. As you can see its has a lot vintage/original design but with a small mix of modern touches. Obviously in 1964 they didn’t have touch screen HD dvd mobile radio systems.
