(Truth or Consequences NM)
A friend and I went to see the Annual Veterans Car Show. There was a good variety of old cars and trucks from most eras, and even a couple of motorcycles. My favorites tend to be the ones from the 1930s to 1950s.
Some were restored to original, but most were customized or updated in some ways. It was nice to see the imagination and craftsmanship of the owners; from classic to way out there.
A couple of hours was spent checking them out, and taking lots of photos. Shots of interiors, exteriors, details, and overviews were taken. It was hard to choose which ones to be shared in this post.
I had a blast being reminded of no longer seen things like wide white-wall tires, extensive use of chrome, hood ornaments, steel dashboards, and rumble seats (yes, I even rode in one as a child).
We looked at the food venders to get a bite to eat, but all had long lines. Instead, we went down the road a short way to a Mexican café for lunch. I had a great time walking down memory lane.

If we were any where close to a car show my late husband would be there.
I understand that as I would go too.
Awesome pictures! I really like seeing the photos of vintage cars. We’ve made a lot of advances in technology but our new lightweight plastic-mobiles just don’t have the charm. I like the Lincolns and Caddies from around ’59 or ’60. They have such cool lines… and are made of metal.
I also understand how difficult it is to trim the list of pictures! I sure liked the ones you shared!
Thanks Brad. I agree that the older cars are nicer to look at.
Thanks for the great memories.
Love the photos. I love cars too. Thanks for sharing the ones you did.
Glad you enjoyed the post and photos.
