This show was hosted by Calvary Temple Ministries, in Sterling VA. It was one of the larger shows I have been to in a while. There are only two shows that are larger than this one: the Sully Plantation Father's Day show and the Leesburg show (both of which I have posts about). This was to promote their Finish The Race Ministries. The parking lot was packed with cars, trucks and motorcycles. I came home with over 120 pictures. Keep reading for a couple bits of excitement. Here's what the lot looked like.
The church even sponsored a drag racer.
Bring on the cars.
I will start out with a category close to my heart, the Pontiac crowd. Not a large amount, but quality cars came out. There were a couple I missed because they either came after I left, or left before I saw them. The one I'm disappointed that I only got to see from a distance was a 1973 GTO.
Here is a 1959 Pontiac Catalina Convertible. I love those lines.
1968, Verdoro Green GTO
1986 Pontiac Trans Am. Sadly there were no 2nd generation Birds like mine.
The next exhibit, on this tour, will cover the trucks. The 2nd picture of the post shows a nice Chevy SSR, General Motors retro designed pick up.
Some Post War (late 1940s-50s) trucks.
1967 C10 Custom
Now we are going to go through the cars in chronological order. First up a 1930 Ford Model A Roadster with a nice custom paint job. Check out the metal flake.
Lets Swing dance into the 1940s and see what's going on. 1955 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
Lets Twist over to the 1950s. A couple nice Tri-5 Chevys
Sweet 1959 Cadillac convertible. Take a look at those huge fins.
A Triple blue 1957 Ford Fairlane 500. I picked this car as one my wife would want for her own. She would look great driving it.
As if these car pictures weren't exciting enough, I have a special treat for you. I wasn't expecting to hear or see what I witnessed at a church car show. The organizer came on the sound system and announced that there was going to be a motorcycle stunt show! It was a local group of riders. It was pretty cool standing mere feet away from them executing their tricks.
Time to Go-Go into the 1960s.
A couple nice Mustangs
1964 Chevelle station wagon and a 1964 Chevelle coupe. The car my dad would drive.
1969 Dodge Dart
Hustle your behind over to the 1970s.
Lots of 2nd generation Camaros.
Some miscellaneous rides.
1986 Hurst Oldsmobile
Yes folks! You are seeing a newer Honda Accord Coupe in a line with a Mustang and Corvettes
Modern muscle. Camaros, Mustangs, Challengers, Corvettes
I had to take a picture of this Indy Pace Car Camaro. I have the plastic model of it on the shelf.
Something just for fun. If I could have a ride that matched the truck, which one would it be?!?
A blue C6 Corvette Grand Sport
This is for all you dreamers out there. Some cars that would cost you north of $100,000. Get yourself a piece of exotic.
Morgan Aero 8
Thanks for viewing, my fellow car enthusiasts. I hope you enjoyed my trip as much as I did. Be safe out there and I will have another stellar adventure for you soon!
