Images of the Car Show

It seems like every weekend during the summer there is something going on in the community where I live. Last week it was the quilt show, this week the car show. Next weekend is the rhythm and blues festival.

So without further delay here are some images of the car show. :)

One thing about my town, they are not afraid to shut sown streets for events. Quite refreshing.

I have found that taking pictures at car shows can be somewhat difficult depending on the crowd size. You have to be willing to go where the crowds aren't in order to not have your image accidentally (or on purpose) photo bombed. :)

This car belonged to one of the original organizers of this show that had recently passed. They were having a raffle to benefit his family behind the car. Several of the business had donated items for the raffle. It is a very giving community that I live in.

This one had some special meaning to me. My dad had a couple Jeep Willys during his life. I grew up watching the family slides of his exploits in the 1950s revolving around his jeep. When I was a teenager in the early '70s he bought another Willys and we had a lot of fun together working on it and driving around. Those bonding experiences are probably why I ended up with a Jeep Wrangler that I will probably own until I die. lol.

Some shots of one of the town parks and stage around which the car show was organized.

The town Christmas tree still sporting its lights.

My tired dogs after a couple of days of taking in the sights and sounds of my town. :)

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!
