Yuma, Arizona 73 Low 52
Today there was a classic Car Show in our Park. There were lots of participants and people to see the cars.
The oldest was a 1919 Stutz Bearcat. The body was made from plywood and was probably the only original thing about the car. It had a Jeep frame and lots of other modifications.
My favorite was a 1937 Buick. It also had lots of modifications as explained on a poster by the car.
There were many trucks and even some Ford Model A’s with rumble seats. One had a V-8 engine and lots of other changes. There was at least one Model A that was original. Most of the cars had newer power trains and brake modifications. Several were for sale at a lot more money than they sold for when new.
I think the oldest Chevrolet was a 1949 sedan. I owned a 1947 when I was in high school.
There were 1955 Chevs and 1956’s that looked like the day they were driven off the dealer’s lot. A lot of work has gone into most of the cars.
There was an old Falcon with a hand fan stuck to the windshield that said it was the Falcon’s AC. Sorry no picture of that.
I enjoyed see all the old cars. Here are pictures of some of the others.
