  1. It was some kind of kit-car / tri-motorcycle.
  2. I showed up to an empty lot in Landstown Plaza in Virginia Beach Saturday.....one by one, more and more cars came and parked. Soon we had about 20 cars! In spite of the masks, we had a great time talking to the kids and visitors, and each other for the first time this year. The weather was perfect. Enjoy the show here in photos!
  3. TTR- a 6 hour drive normally (about 306 miles) going around Washington, DC and then up Route 15 through Gettysburg to Carlisle/Hershey.
  4. I don't see it quite as much anymore, but Norfolk, VA was always had a big smoking population. Drivers would lower their driver-side window about halfway so they could flick the ashes outside instead of using their ashtrays. Unfortunately, the cigarette butt usually ended up on the street too. You could pick out the smokers in a line of traffic with every third car that had a window halfway down.
  5. Tough one to find yourself in a photo with the car(s). Here's two: one from Saint Patrick's Day in 2004, and when I picked up the '56 Cadillac in 2005.
  6. My wife and I drove from VA Beach up to Hershey, stopping overnight near DC on I-495West. We toured the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield in the car and stayed with my brother in Carlisle until the show (blissfully driving, not thinking of the miracle that a 50 year old car was doing so well). I didn't know until we got to the show that the car developed a power steering leak...and all of the vendors had left by Saturday. My brother bandaged it up tightly, and we added fluid all of the way home. I was on edge but we made it home safely where I could order and wait 2 weeks for another P/S line to come in. It was an enjoyable ride though, driving these cars the way you are supposed to. I think the next time I'll have the wife in her car in case we run into an issue. I guess we were lucky on that trip!
  7. Here in Virginia Beach we're cancelling our September car show this year mostly because all of the venues we advertise at beforehand are getting cancelled. We go online with photos though. More to follow on that--- and we will be back in 2021 (God willing).
  8. Glad to see you guys lighten up! Beauty!! You can probably smell that car 30 minutes after it drove by!
  9. At the Tidewater Veterans' Memorial, Virginia Beach.
  10. Well done guys! I love the Corgis-Dinkys with Michelin Man!
  11. My Mom in 1956 hurrying in to her wedding from a 1956 Cadillac limousine.
  12. My mother and my brother in Philadelphia about 1958.
