Now that we’ve rounded the corner, and Spring is well on it’s way, I thought I would try to put some positive weather vibes out there. No matter how Punxsatwney Phil appears, he always seems to “predict” six more weeks of crap weather. I think it’s a big sham personally. You see, it’s Winter. In Winter, we have Winter weather. That’s what makes it Winter. But I digress…
In late April or early May ever year, the Dutchess County Fairgrounds host the Rhinebeck Car Show. The show draws people from all around to display and view some of the most amazing classic cars I have ever seen. According to the show’s web site, they attract between 800 and 1200 classic cars over the weekend. It is pretty impressive to see all of those cars in one spot.
It was pretty gloomy the day I went last year, but I managed to see some cars that were incredibly photogenic. Most of these cars begged to be photographed. It was like taking a walk back through time. The fins, the long hoods, the huge motors. It was incredible. The smell of unrestricted exhaust was intoxicating. Here are some pictures I took that day.
This one was my favorite of the show. It was amazing. Love the color and attention to detail.
I called this one Mint Condition

If you’ve never been, I highly recommend checking it out. There are some amazing cars there and each one has a story. What’s your favorite car? Do you have one of these beauties. Have you been to the show?
