1947 Ford Super DeLuxe sedan coupe; street-rodded, orange and lookin' really cool. In Granite City, IL; its owner is a friend of mine who lives a block up the street from me, and a parishoner in our church! Had it out because he was at a "cruise" the night before!

1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner retractable hardtop; gorgeous Torch Red over Colonial White; except for '57 Ford turbine wheel covers, as new-looking as you'd ever want; from North Carolina heading to who knows where! In Collinsville, IL

(Some color charts refer to the '58 Ford white color as Winterset White, but seems to me being the color was Colonial White in both 1957 and 1959, it may have been a one-year wonder?)

There was indeed a car show, and what a show it was! The show didn't officially start until 12 noon, but what I saw as of this posting was most impressive! Not to mention those I saw in the nearby area!

In order of model year, we have:

1924 Ford Model T runabout; basic black

1930 Ford Model A tudor; green with black top and yellow wire wheels

1939 Packard One-Twenty opera coupe; black and originally delivered to Berry Motor Car Co. (a St. Louis dealer) in September of '39!

1944 GMC 6X6 Army cargo carrier; good old dependable Army olive drab;

1948 Chevrolet Fleetline 2-door sedan; maroon with original dealer-installed "Country Club" wood-grain side paneling (like a Chrysler Town and Country of that vintage. Originally from Pennsylvania);

1948 Chevrolet 1/2-tone pickup; murky gray and done up to look like the "Clampett Limousine Service" (think "The Beverly Hillbillies");

1948 Ford F-1 pickup; vermilion red

1949 Chevrolet 3100 pickup; red (and curiously, parked next to the '48 Chevy "Clampett Limousine Service" pickup!);

1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door hardtop; India Ivory over Matador Red;

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Sedan (two-door); Raven Black

1965 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 fastback; Raven Black

1966 Mustang 2-door hardtop; Nighwatch Blue

1967 Chevy II Nova SS 2-door hardtop; turquoise

1969 Dodge Charger Daytona; black with red wing

1970 Camaro Rally Sport 2-door hardtop; metallic lime green with black vinyl top and white rally stripes (looked nicer than it sounds!)

We're scheduled to have a car show Saturday in Granite City Saturday, but we've had an awesome preview the past day-and-a-half...these were all seen in Granite City!

1955 Ford Customline 4-door sedan; two-tone blue with a Fairlane "checkmark" stripe;

1962 Corvair Monza club coupe; Roman Red;

1964 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible; Ember Red with white top;

1967 Chevrolet Camaro convertible; red;

1969 Chevrolet Impala convertible; dark blue (those two were seen top-down);

and 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible; Citron Yella (or maybe Lemon Twist?); in any event, bright yellow with white stripes, again with top down!

More to come tomorrow!
