For the ninth year in a row, the city of Covington, KY held their annual car show in conjunction with KOI Auto Parts. Closing down several blocks along the MainStrasse Village section of town, the city lines the streets with nearly 200 classic and collector cars. Declared a national historic district, MainStrasse Village is full with quaint shops and unique restaurants. But on that day in August, it was all about the cars.
The show traditionally draws from all around the region and this year was no exception, with drivers coming as far away as Florida to put their car on display. And a wide variety of cars it was. Ranging from the classic Fords, Chevys and Mopar cars to more eclectic vehicles such as a Morgan, a Sunbeam Tiger, a couple of DeLoreans, a collection of VW Bugs, an extremely rare 1952 Mercedes, and even some classic metro busses, there was surely something for every taste.
Eventually I’ll get to writing about and showing all of the cars but consider this a brief introduction to the show and what’s to come. Hope you all enjoy.
