Here's a shot I took last year showing several men around a vintage beauty.
You can't see their glazed eyes, but I can assure you, the men were hypnotized by this car, as well as the many others on display, plus trucks of various makes, models and vintages that were at the show. Throughout the day, clusters of men were staring, leaning, retelling car stories from their own childhood or teen years, and talking about the fine points of various vehicles. The camaraderie was tangible. It was clearly a dream day for many.
I'm not saying this is an event for men only. Not at all. Women were shooting pictures and video of their favorite cars as well. And this is a terrific chance to take the family out for the day without spending a fortune on tickets - the show is free.
There are lots of events, games and prizes that add interest to the day, so plan on staying a while. You'll find plenty of food and soft drinks.
The Powers That Be in the Rotary Club tell me (I love it when I get the inside scoop) that this show will be larger than ever, with more car owners and vintage car buffs attending for the first time.
If you know people in car clubs with-in driving distance, give them a call and point them to the information.
I've posted a few more pics. on the Cruise-In page on this site. But for complete information about the event, you'll need to click over to www.WinnsboroClassicCarShow.com.
See you there!
