Locust Grove 8th Annual Car Show, Part 2

Here are some more lovingly restored vintage cars on display. Wish I could give you some info about the cars below, but the owners were not by their cars when I took the photos and I was away far too long from my assigned post.

(You may need to click on some of the photos to enlarge.)

The photos below are cars as they were leaving Locust Grove at the end of the show.

I know nothing about these cars but some of you may recognize one or more or may at some point in your life owned one. I thought they were really cool.

Still having phone and internet issues, dropping in and out. Was ready to publish this post this morning, when suddenly my computer slowed down, some of my photos disappear and I had no internet connection. At this moment I am back on (may get disconnected suddenly again so am working fast). Re-uploaded the missing photos. Here is the post.

For the past few days I have been trying to reply to comments left on my blogs, visit blogs I follow and tried to leave comments but I am afraid some of the comments have disappeared (due to the “dropping in and out”), so sorry.

Hope the cable company takes care of this issue really soon.

  1. What a treat! Thanks for taking the photos for us, Norma, it’s great to see cars so loved and passionately restored!

    Gorgeous! This is my kind of post Norma. Amazing cars and bikes. Again you’ve brought back so many memories. My husband had a 1956 FE Holden, a true Australian classic. Holdens have been made here for 60 years, but the company have been weighing up their manufacturing future over the last couple of weeks. The thought of them not existing is just tragic. So, your post is pretty poignant for us!

    So many gorgeous cars and I bet a lot of these have appeared in period movies. So much history of the automobile industry here xx

    Wouldn’t it be a thrill to drive one of these! Good luck with your cable issues, I just went through that too.

    OMG: had I been there with either of my husbands we would have spent all day 🙂 ! Some beautifully kept and prepared old motors there: actually I could easily have walked around for a couple of hours also!!

  7. I attend this kind of events from time to time. I love old beautiful cars. Thank you for this pictures.

    Hello Norma, Great web site, and I am enjoying the great pictures of these beautiful cars.

    That red Mustang brought back memories of High School days with my blue one. Mine wasn’t award winning pretty, but did collect some costly speeding tickets.

    What a surprise that 100 years ago Fiats were built in Poughkeepsie,

    It’s always good to see you at the ‘Walkway Over the Hudson’. See you there.

      Hello Ken,
      Welcome. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. Aha, so it was pedal to the metal with your blue mustang in HS days! Glad you had a trip down memory lane. See you on the walkway.

  10. Love these cars! Especially the little aqua and white Nash Metropolitan.
