More Photos From Newport

I've written a lot about the history of Newort, this small city on the banks of the Ohio River which at one time was essentially the blueprint for what was to become Las Vegas. Check through the search if you are interested.

At the Rides on Monmouth show last summer there were a huge number of magnificent vehicles, including a race built Chevy, a Chevy pick up, a Trans Am, an MG, a Camaro, a Mustang convertible, a Chevelle Malibu, and a Dodge van that was used as a rescue unit by the Woodlawn Fire Department.

Back to the Rides on Monmmouth

As regular followers of this blog know the Rides on Monmouth show is one of the biggest events in this region, closing down blocks of Newport's main street. People regularly come from four or five states to show off their classic and collectible cars.

This year at least 200 cars were on display (that's about how many pictures I took). While I posted a great many last year shortly after the event, for the next three weeks I'll be posting the rest of the pictures I took from that show.

Included in this year's show as a police cruiser from the Greater Cincinnati Police Historical Society Museum (, a Ford Fairlane GTA, a not quite stock Chevy, a couple of C3 Vettes, a Chevelle SS, a Toyota pick up, and a late model Oldsmobile.

Wrapping Up Blue Ash

Last summer I posted a lot of pictures from the 10th Annual City of Blue Ash and The Untouchables Classic Car Show at Oakwood Park. Only a handful of pictures remain from that show and today, to wrap up the week I'm also going to wrap up the posts from that event.

Attending the show was a beautiful Lincoln Continental, a 1961 Studebaker Hawk, a couple of Chevy Novas, a C3 Vette, a 1967 Dodge Dart GT, and a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
