Antique Car Show

 

Yesterday we visited the 44th Annual Fathers Day Antique (Classic) Car Show at Sully Historic Site a few miles from here.

 

Hundreds of classic cars from the very early ones to these iconic sporty ones, familiar from so many American movies, were displayed in the bright sunshine.

 

In some cases the interiors were even more spectacular than the exterior and many were beautifully restored.

 

Many of the cars had stories to tell of rallies attended and prizes won over many years.

 

This one had presumably spent some time in the UK..

 

We liked these 'Woodies'..

 

 

Some of the older vehicles had beautiful mascots..

 

This one looked as if it may be Lalique.  Certainly glass..

 

This one was splendidly polished chrome..

 

So much to see but as it got hotter the cars under the trees became the most attractive..such as this handsome MG..

 

Here route 28 - the major road to Dulles airport is in the background.  A different era of motoring, although fairly quiet on a Sunday morning.

  1. Although the cars are obviously different, this looks strangely familiar and similar to the car show we went to in Nottingham the other weekend.

  2. Quite a collection and they are beautifully kept.
