vintage car show in crestwood

there was some kind of vintage car show going on in crestwood today. we came upon it right at dark. it was in the crestwood mall parking lot, which we all know isn't being used by shoppers at the mall. the first car we came upon was this 68 corvette convertible. nice.
though ugly, this 1971 oldsmobile 442 was an excellent example.
super cool C2 corvette. pristine.
nice resto-mod on this 1966 fairlane.
1970 road runner was stunning...
..and it's road runner 383 was in fantastic shape.
1971 trans am 455 HO. ugly car, nice example of the screaming chicken.
my horrible camera cannot even begin to show the beauty of this 1968 plymouth GTX. it's a very dark blue and was in amazing condition.
it's 440 Super Commando V8 was gorgeous.
interior was awesome.
the one nod to the modern corvette was the 96 Grand Sport. my favorite modern corvette.
eli in front of a custom rod. he was having a great time.
now we're talking. 1970 ford torino gt, complete with 429 4v. it was an automatic car. good shape, a bit of orange peel on the cool orange paint.
the 429 looked very nice, i think the owner took better care of the engine compartment than he did the paint.
1969 fastback with a bad choice of wheels.
killer 1963 dodge station wagon with a 440 under the hood. now THAT'S a wagon!
the best shot i could get of the 68 shelby GT500KR. this King of the Road was a daily driver in original condition.
the interior of the 1957 ford ranchero. i LOVE the gauges in this one! it was a pretty burgundy color, but again my camera misses most of the good stuff.
the guy with this "smokey and the bandit" trans am was so happy that eli took an interest in his car that he told him to stand in it and put his head out of the t-tops.
and then he wanted us to all get in the picture and he took our photo. i wish the car was in better shape, because the guy sure loved it.
i am very sad that the only good photo of the black 1970 torino that i was able to get was the engine compartment. this car has 52,000 original miles. the black paint was a mile deep. just a basic 302 2v that has been incredibly well cared for. it sported a 4-speed manual transmission, a swap from the original 3-on-the-tree. i think that's a nice upgrade, even if it isn't original. the interior was deluxe, as well.
