Vintage Car Classy Chassis

HI lovers of cars that are old (and new). Once every so often a good friend of mine goes to the Vintage car show she has a vintage car and when I say vintage I mean old, classed in my mind as an old Jalopy, which she is not but she reckons her and the car are man magnets. She did warn me that the car could break down on the way but usually there were plenty of male helpers who stopped and offered their help (I look forward to that)

The car show, free to the public, was canceled last year because of the pandemic, but attracted big crowds on its return.

The iconic 1930 Ford Model A has air-conditioning, not the air-conditioning we think of today, though, with our modern cars. The Model A’s windshield tilts outward to allow fresh air to flow into the car while it is on the road, keeping the driver nice and cool in the process Other quaint features include a rumble seat, a pull-down shade for the back window to keep out sun glare and a storage box strapped onto the rear of the car that doubles as the trunk. These oddities – in those days, they were innovations – gave car buffs a glimpse of the past during the 65th annual Antique Auto Show presented by the Jersey Cape Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

Altogether, spectators were able to savor about 160 vintage American and foreign cars displayed on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle on its return and later during a parade on the Boardwalk.
Among them, there were classic Fords and Packards from the 1920s and 1930s, big-finned Cadillacs from the 1950s, exotic European sports cars from the 1960s and American muscle cars from the 1960s and ’70s.
It’s just a nice mix of cars. The car owners get to share stories with everybody who comes here. Every car has a story, some of them very naughty!! I like those stories. After we looked around not necessarily at the cars there were some classic males to give the eye to and we did, need I say more, Champagne and caviar in the members bar. I could get used to this. Thank you my lovely friend look forward to the next show.
