Oct 5th Caro Mi Pumpkin fest it appears will be our last car show of 2019. Yes there are a few others here and there till the end of Oct. Those are considered Trunk in Treat car shows where you have candy in a bucket, basket or other device and had it out to the kids during The show.





A friend who in on the planing board of such a show said that if you attend to bring about 7000 pieces of candy to hand out from answers to questions from previous years.


OH great all I want it a bunch of poorly parented sugar crazed kids running around the car.





We had taken the Buick to Kare’s moms house because we feared our gravel road would be a quagmire Saturday morning, Mom’s house is on a paved road.


There we had to go west 14 miles and then back east to start out.











We had a Packard convertible as a neighbor.








Our other neighbor is a past neighbor with a 63 willy’s jeep pick up.








This unfinished project Pontiac was having electrical issues when it came time to leave. It had to be towed.








The picture doesn’t do justice to this pick up as the roof is a light pastel green. They were with the Packard and Pontiac group.








A Mercury Bob Cat same as a Ford Pinto. Co owned by a class mate of our friend Dan with the 65 Buick GS.








A nice stock appearing street rod.

Beautiful 2+2 Pontiac powered by a 421 CID engine.








Here is a rare one, a AMC Madtor, Note the front bumpers.








Dodge Super Bee.








This Junk Yard Dog ford Ranger got a heart transplant from an elephant it seems.








Nicely done Old Ford.

wow your probably not going to like my reply so don't take it personally. with that final sentence about kids you should just park that precious buick at home. again no offense it's a mid 80's buick not some rare muscle car or high high end exotic car.
over the summer I had my mustang convertible out and small little kid ran up to it all excited and smacked his hands up against it. the mother looked upset and was going to yell it him, I laughed and gave the kid the keys and told let him sit in it if he wants too.
if you don't let kids get a good impression they will never have an intrest in the future, some old grumpy dude yelling stay away from my car or tractor doesn't do nothing for the future

Our Buick isn't some ratty old Mustang yopu see at least ten of at car shows. It is a Rare Buick only 29,000 made in one year. We have been to shows all over Michigan includeing the Michigan Buick club July show and have only seen one other one in Coupe form.

Yes we are going to keep our precious Buick home rather than attend a show where poorly parnted kids are on a sugar high.
Our Buick isn't a part of the future. Those are the cars that drive them selves that will most likely be on the road in the next ten to twenty years.
Our Buick is a non replaceable part of the past. They no longer build them this way.

If our Buicks paint looked like this probably be fine.

Low rider Rivera, not a fan of low riders but this one looks nice.








Dodge Polara, I love the Mopar hard top roof line of this era.








Nice street rod, but most are








A great looking Ford PU.








This 69 Buick Wild cat would make some one a nice car once they got rid of all the flat black.






In case you may be interested price OR BO which is? Phone number too.

Red Hot road runner.

I'm sure going to be glad when this flat black craze is over. Parking one of those between two beautiful cars ought to be a sin in my opinion. :mad:

I have had a hard time with this one. Never see Cadillacs this old and so resembles a 50’s Chevy Deluxe. Fellow who owns it also owns a salvage yard.














School mate and Neighbor had a 1965 Mercury Comet. I loved the car my self, brother salvaged many engine parts after he totaled it.








Nice GMC pickup. All I have to say on this one. My dad had a 1979 454 4 speed one ton. That truck played with our 11’ camper and the boat and loads when we went fishing in Canada.








Tried to get the guy that painted this Plymouth 3 years ago to do ours.








The owner of this Plymouth also owns a 1970 GTX Plymouth. Nice fellow.

Flathead V8'sDrkIKS4.jpg
sound so sweet and are just plain cool. It would be nice if more old Fords had flatheads instead of GM engines.

Orange Crush gets a charge out of the owners who stuck GM engines in their street rods. They keep trying to go to the ford show and get turned around with their GM and MOPAR engines.

Sounds good to me. Putting a Ford body on a GM powertrain shouldn't make it a Ford. Same goes for any multi make of car or truck.

The Indian goes every where with this truck.








This beautiful Cuda was painted 28 years ago. It and the owner Jim is responsible for the guy painting our Buick for us.


I would love to own this car.








Another nice Plymouth Duster. Seems this Body style out sold Dodge or is more collected/restored.











A Pontiac LeMans, a bunch of these have been changed to GTO’s but if you read the vin plate and know the codes you can tell the differences.








No this is not a Chevy Nova, It is a Pontiac Ventura, there was also Buick and Old’s version.

I know it isn’t a car/truck but though ya all might like to see the rocking bike.








Another street rod. I some times wonder how many times one has been changed.








This street rod missed not having rear fenders. There was a light coating of mud up the sides.








Had fun with the owner of this PU and the Perefect next to it. He has a 3 inch foam covered pad in the bed. Asked if he took a nap in it he said yes, his partner said the spare would make a hard pillow. He Said there was no air in it. What if you have a flat? I have a can of air behind the seat.








4 door Anglias are Perefect models. Also one of the best in snows.
