This year's 35th Annual ACE Car Club show brought out, as you will see with my posts about it, a good variety of rides. Everything from the standards, which will get their own posts, to some rare and unique cars were on display. In all close to 70 cars rolled out for the event; this despite the threat of more bad weather. Last year's show was plagued by the same thing only worse, the bad weather actually moved in. This year turned out to be a very nice day with temperatures in the mid 70s and mostly sunny skies.

Parking Lot Cars

Though I'm not a big fan, a number of shows are inviting owners with newer cars, cars from the past 10 years, to turn up and take part. I can understand the desire to want to draw more people to an event but to me a car show should be about the classics and not models I can see in the grocery store parking lot. Still, that being said, there were some pretty newer cars at this year's ACE Car Club show.

ACE Bel Airs

As is usually the case with large shows, you have a good helping of classic Chevy Bel Airs. Generally dominated by the "tri-5" models from 1955, '56 and '57, sometimes a "younger" model will slip in as is the case with the first car shown, a 1951 Bel Air.

I was walking among the cars when I heard a young girl, perhaps seven years old, call out in excitement as she ran up to a Bel Air. Her mom asked her not what kind of car it was but what year. The girl said it was a 1957. She was correct.

They Know Heavy Metal

Back in 1899 the American Rolling Mill Company was founded in Middletown, OH. Known as Armco, it became one of the largest steel manufacturers in the country. After partnerships with Japanese based Kawasaki Steel, the company is now known as AK Steel.

A group of employees who surely knew a good deal about heavy metal grouped together to share their love of another type of metal, cars. And now 35 years later, the ACE Car Club is still going strong. Enjoy some more of the cars that were on display at this year's show.
