2017 Old Car Festival Photos


Recommended Posts

WOW ! From the point of view of a Senior Citizen who was fascinated and in love with old cars as a little kid in the '40s , it is a sheer joy to see a gathering of old cars , and nothing but old cars. O.K. Old pedal power too. Funny , in that immediatly after WW2 period , at least on the streets and alleys of our neighborhood in Chicago , some commerce took place behind one horsepower hay burners. As I seem to remember , they had a very different type of exhaust from any of the cars at the time. Whether old or new.   Happily getting older by the day ,    -  Carl

Carl, Greenfield Village has a few hay burners present to give full effect. They even left some "exhaust" around.

Thanks for the good news Andy ! ?  And thank you so much for all the pictures ! Authenticity. Originality. Now seriously , it is all kinds of period feedback which enhance the experience. Horse = period total immersion ! ?  - Carl

 

Well , O.K. Here are a couple of rescued horses out at the ranch , putting on weight and getting healthy on 150 acres. Plenty of exhaust out here.   - CC
