PostSubject: Monthly Krystal Cruise-In    Sat Apr 02, 2011 9:12 pm

So I forgot about this. Last time I went was in November, but the first Saturday of every month, the local Chevelle club near me has a cruise in, and everybody attends. Lots of fun stuff came up this time.




Saw this T/A at Daytona too, note the window sticker

Another nice one


Met this guy at the first show I went to. It's an all original car aside from maintenance items. A real survivor. I think he said he bought it from his neighbor when her husband passed. Tri-power 427 - 400hp (yeah right, waaaaay more GM). Such an awesome car.



Under the hood of a Z06 (too bad his diecast is a ZR1 - d'oh!)


Mmmm 442


A supercharged SSR. Oh my lord. I want.






I LOVED this 442. It looked orange in person. Gorgeous car.




The Majestic Nomad's grandparents?




Nice W-31 Cutlass







SHARP older El Camino


Orange Vette (I had to)



An LS1 powered Packard, owned by an old gentleman who says he used to work for a Packard assembly plant in the 40s.






So sinister...





Most badass S-10 ever.





G-body HURST OLDS!






And finally, to wrap it up, my FAVORITE vehicle of the show: A 1960 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery. One of under 900 made that year (the last year).

Well Ray I have to agree with you about the sedan delivery.Its a beautiful car and the interior
is stunning.Very surprised to see a Chrysler Airflow sedan out and about is unusual as is the
Cord.Very interesting collection of cars,trucks and tractor.

That car was every bit of beautiful and more. Excellent body work. The guy said this was his first show with it since getting the motor in. He's been working on it with his dad for the past 5 years.


The Airflow was there the first time I went and I was beyond surprised. I'm glad I caught it again. What I didn't catch this time was an ancient Cadillac (like, pre-war ancient). I hope I can find it again, it was awesome.

We have a show up here at the Harley Davidson shop the first Saturday of each month from
June thru September and there is usually a pretty good turnout.I only went a few times but
plan on going back again now that I have the time.Gotta learn how to post pictures sooner
or later.Great pictures Ray just take more next time.
Thanks

Yeah I was in a hurry to get back. I only spent about an hour at the show, and a lot of my shots of the cars (442, Packard) were ruined by inconsiderate people who got in the way of the shots (seriously, I hate that at shows... it's not that hard to pay attention and just step aside for 3 seconds of your day).

I won't make next month's - I'll be back at home, but I'll find something local down here and take pics for sure. Smile

Maybe it's because I'm fat and hungry, but this thread title has me jonesing for a Monty Cristo sandwich, so thanks for that. Evil or Very Mad

Great pix too btw. I love seeing 4 door cars hot rodded up with a hole in the hood. There's just something so right about seeing people give the finger to the "norm".

I agree with you there.

Although, I can say this: Even though I live about 2 miles from that Krystal for 8 months out of the year, I have never had one of their burgers in my entire life.

The sedan delivery is gorgeous!

That center console doesn't do it for me. It looks like an afterthought as every line in the interior is soft and flowing and the center console is flat with hard edges. JMHO

Ahh Krystal Burger....the southern White Castle. Sliders for all!

Great pics! Thanks so much for posting!

Oh that 72 442 convertible...man I LOVE that! Ditto the G-body Hurst/Olds...I want one of those hood scoops for my '88.

That Airflow looked awesome...as for the Cord, was it real or a kit-car....it looked small.

My favorite was that 72 442 ragtop....man I'd love one of those!

Drool....

No idea about the Cord. Admittedly, I didn't even know what it was - it just interested me.

Cord was the first front wheel drive car built in the USA.I cant tell if its a repro or a real one
either.Didnt the windshield on the original pivot open for ventilation?Does look like the real deal though.

Nice cars. The Caprice convertible was my favorite. That's one of my "dream cars"

Nice pics!! Some really sweet rides....

Yeah...I grew up with White Castles and miss them when I moved to SC. Not really a fan as Krystle's are NOT the same.
