Let the Car Shows begin! Lake Wheeler, Raleigh

         Some guys look forward to the next baseball, football or basketball game... I look forward to church and the next car show. I don't know what it is about cars that I like so much.
not fair, lol, this guy drove to the car show in this
    No, I know exactly what it is. It's the sight and sound and feeling that they give you. Since I don't have my own, I'll have to live vicariously through other car owners.. capturing their love for cars. To keep it 100% with y'all, ... if I had a classic car, i don't think I'd be one of the car owners that goes to a car show to show off my car, but i would drive my classic... "heavy chevy" out there. Anyway, those are just dreams right now.
      So, this is my trip to the Fun in The Sun charity car show put on by Corvettes International in Raleigh. It was held at Lake Wheeler Park. You don't see the lake in any of these pictures but trust me its a beautiful park.
Yup, that's an old school monte Carlo, the Granddaddy of my current ride

It Surprises me how many for sale signs you see at these events

Take a close look at this car. Its a 1957 Chevy with the heart of a 2005 Mustang, and when I say heart of a Mustang, I mean the Engine is a Mustang, the seats inside are from a mustang, The dashboard is from a mustang, the steering wheel, the instrument cluster, and the shifter. The owner calls it Incognito and it has been in at least one magazine. It's an awesome little creation.

I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but this truck is literally sitting on the ground. The frame is resting onthe grass. It has an airbag suspension, so, I'm guessing it jumps up pretty high once the whole thing is turned on. This is another freakish creation. One guy says it freaked him out when he saw it come up behind him on the highway. Just look at the huge Turbo-charger assembly on this sideof the engine. I thinkthat would freak me out too. Unfortunately, I couldn't hang around long enough to hear this thing turn on and drive off.
