My best friend and I met up in the King of Prussia area for lunch and some shopping on the first sunday of the month. It’s a long drive for me and I was running late, hoping that nothing else on the road would be cause for any stress. Dealing with a tail-gaiter always bothers me, since it happens even if I’m going a little over the speed limit or if I can’t go any faster while behind a slow driver. In the latter case, I don’t want to ride too close. Yet no aggressive drivers were anywhere near me that day.
In fact, I had a friendly encounter instead. As I got closer to my best friend’s area, a guy in a Camaro similar to mine was coming from
the opposite direction. He flashed the peace sign at me out his window, so I held up the peace sign back to him. My BFF and I joked
that it was Camaro flirting.
Hanging out with my friend was unusually short that day and back in my area a car show was being held at a saloon. I was unsure of the exact timeframe of the event, but figured I missed it. Then I decided to make a left turn toward the site and didn’t see anything at first. I turned around in a shopping center to cross an intersection and beyond that, spotted a group of motorcycles, cool cars and a crowd of people. So, I entered that lot, parked among vehicles registered for display; nobody minded about it. Just as I was struggling to straighten my park job, extra cautious next to a classic muscle car and some people standing to the other side, it started raining. A slight drizzle
gradually got heavier and that brought the car show to a close only moments later. So, I was there long enough to hear some awards won and to take five photos. But among those I took photos of, one surprised me and for that reason was my favorite for my short time there. I had
walked up a small grassy hill and past this awesome Dodge Challenger on its passenger side and turned around to see…
Usually, a classic Camaro is my favorite among cool wheels on display. But even after seeing so many Challengers around, I never saw one with a “Fast and Furious” reference. Maybe I’ll see a blue Yenko Camaro exactly like what was used in the boat jump stunt from “2 Fast 2 Furious.” One of the two Camaros I saw at this car show was unlike others I’d seen, due to its color combo.
This 50’s pick-up truck was the only car of its decade at the event and won an award in the category of its time period. I always love the
flame detail on classic rides.
I’ve seen these three at different events before; classic Camaro, Firebird and a patriotic antique done up as a hotrod.
After that photo, the rain was just too much and I had to put my phone away. So, now I’m looking forward to whatever car show is coming up next.
