May Car Show Highlights

This month has been host to a very large number of car shows and cruise-ins here in the sunny Texas hill country, and I've had the pleasure of attending quite a few different shows. I thought I'd assemble all of the shows into one and show the highlights all in one go. So stay with me, this could be a long one.

This 1966 Mustang Coupe was showroom nice.

The 1940 Ford Coupe is a favorite among hot rodders, though this one is fairly mild.

One of the most well-preserved fox-body 'Stangs I've ever seen.

This '32 Ford Coupe looked stunning in red.

Ford's answer to the Corvette, the 1956 Thunderbird.

This MGC was one of several British sports cars in attendance.

A lot of work has gone into this killer 1951 Studebaker.

A tastefully customized 1936 Ford.

A 1963 Corvette, the first year of this bodystyle.

A neat little hot rod running the wheels and engine off of a Chevy Vega.

Red pinstriping makes this '77 Trans Am look rather sinister.

One of the meanest Mustangs around, a 2007 Saleen S281 Speedster.

This 1936 Buick was spotless, and the rumbleseat was a fantastic feature.

This 1969 Malibu is rocking the red paint for maximum attention.

The rat rod look suits this Ford F-1 very well.

This Lotus Esprit S4 was a great performance car in its day, and it's still quick by today's standards too.

The 1967 Corvette is just as much a sculpture as it is a car.

This 1955 Fairlane Club Sedan summed up the fifties nicely: fins, chrome, and two-tone.

This 1971 442 marks one of the last years for Oldsmobile's premier muscle car.

This pro street 1941 Willys was sporting a colossal GM 502 crate motor.

I've always thought that 1961 was one of the prettiest years for the Impala, and this one is particularly nice.

This Ford Coupe had an American Graffiti vibe going on. It needs to be yellow.

I think this Austin-Healey is the perfect embodiment of the stereotypical red sports roadster.

The paint on this 1939 Chevy is absolutely stellar from every angle.

This 1978 El Camino has received a healthy dose of customization.

A black Ford coupe with the right modifications makes for a great hot rod.
