More car show captures showing the best of some very good vehicular restorations – this time, at Chestermere, Alberta. Now, I know it’s not the fault of the organizers, but this particular show really seems to be snake-bitten: last year it was a big thunderstorm, this year it was gale-force winds filling my eyes and nose with dust and almost blowing my tent away. Anyway, in between gusts I wandered around and managed to catch a few angles before conditions got too onerous.
I love a stock car – that is, one which is either original or which has been returned faithfully to its factory state. But sometimes, the newer colours are just astonishing.
This quarter view of a beautifully restored 1966 Chrysler Windsor convertible really caught my eye. It wasn’t just the colour, but the lines and the attention to detail. I love how the fender lines draw the eye and collect at an imaginary point far off in the distance.
And here’s a celebration of bravado – one of the more aggressive labels attached to a beautiful 60s muscle car. Usually I’m a fairly sedate individual, but some of these old muscle cars make even my passions surge.
Here’s a shout.
