Car shows are great. Now that I have a K10D I look forward to the next one!

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Nice pictures. That GTO reminds me of a '70 I had when I was younger. Same color, except mine was a convertible. REALLY wish I had not sold that car...

Nice ... nice indeed.

Love the gold GTO ... and the SS Camaro as well.
Like the GT as well.

Haven't seen a Viper in a while ... last Viper i saw at a show out here had a matching trailer made (in the beautful purple ... all matching) ... I'll see if i can dig the photo up actually.

Great shots Fl_Gulfer.
I am a bike rider, but if ever I were to own a car, it would be shot 7. That car is soooo cool. Sleepy eyes, big crazy bumpers, bat wings and all those vents. I would just cruise down south - I am getting carried away here..

Yep the 56 Caddy is sweet, the guy that owned it was about 75. said he bought it new. The last car is not a Viper its a Prowler, they are cheaper than a Viper but not as fast either, Almost bought one back in 2000. I think is was 56,000K back then.

These bring back some fond memories. I was in my mid to late teens when most of them were popular (I'll be eligible for Medicare in 2 months). My Dad had a 53 chevy (think that is the year of the police car), and that Dodge Variant(?) looks sort of like the one I owned, except mine was a 4-door.

My Dad had a '61 Plymouth Valiant which was the sister to the first car shown. I think the car shown is perhaps a later model but it looked a lot like that. My Mum was furious when he brought that car home. Two adults, 5 kids and a dog had to squeeze into that thing for all our road trips. Dad thought it looked sharp, though. And it was a lemon - in the shop more than it was out. Thanks for stirring up that memory - really!

The last one is the Plymouth Prowler they made them from 1997 to 2001, cool looking cars.

Great shot of the Camaro. Love these; I was in high school and college when these cars were new (oops, wish I hadn't thought of that).

Awesome shots. Love the mustangs, the SS. I have always been a big car fan that Caddy is sweet - I think Jay Leno once said something like I like to drive a car with metal. The kind where if you hit something you have to scrape it off with a spatula
