What would your Family Car Show look like?

A couple of weekends ago, my dad, uncle and I took some cars to a local car show. We wanted to bring some older cars because we knew that most of the cars would be newer cars. We ended up bringing 6 cars. While we sat there, we got to thinking about what it would be like if we just had a "Daly Family car show". This would be a car show of just cars owned my me, my dad, my brothers, my uncles and my cousins. This list does not include any cars we could build up from parts in the basement. Just cars that are or could be restored. I also did not put any of our newer daily driver cars unless they are antiques 25 years old or older.

I thought it would be fun to see that other "Family Cars Shows" would look like. Please share yours!

Here is the Daly Family Car show:

Fascinating, John! My family show would be a lot smaller:

1906 Buick Model F 2-cylinder touring (me)

1907 Cadillac Model K one-cylinder runabout (me)

1909 E-M-F Model 30 4-cylinder touring (my son)

1911 Stanley Model 63 steam toy tonneau (me)

1912 Ford Model T commercial roadster (my son)

1912 Buick Model 35 4-cylinder touring (me)

1913 Ford Model T runabout (me)

I have been toying with the idea of running a tour, possibly a week in length, for very primitive cars. The HCCA and VMCCA 1-and 2-cylinder tours are becoming dominated by big twins, mostly Buicks and Reos with the occasional Rambler, Durocar or Northern. The really slow cars don't come out. My thoughts are starting to jell into a "Singles, Solids and Sticks" tour: any car with one or more of a single cylinder engine, solid tires or tiller steering would be eligible. There would be some hills (they had hills back in the day, too), but each day's run would be short enough that even the creepy-crawlers would be back in a reasonable time. All back roads, of course. Maybe some dirt. I see you have a couple of highwheelers. Would you consider participating in such a tour, if everyone else had something of comparably limited performance?

Guess I should have said "Running or Not running". Certainly not all of the cars on my list are runnable at the present time. But all are mostly complete cars which are restoreable or restored/drivable.

Come on, lets us see your car family car show.

These car shows would be better than most of the car shows I attend. Most of the car shows these days are closer to used car lots for me. Nothing really all that interesting to me.

Lets see some more Family car shows!

We had our own EGO trip car show a few years ago. The Jefferson meet was featuring Mopars. So I rented a tent and my son brought his 1970 Cuda Conv.

my son-in-law his 1970 Challenger RT conv. a friend brought his 1970 Hemi Challenger and I brought my four 1970 Challenger RT conv. all numbers matching and restored, fun but a job shuttling.
