But this year's event was held under bright blue skies with temperatures in the mid-70s. You couldn't have asked for a better day to kick off our car show season.

As great as it is to see all of those cars come out of storage, lots of people show up to purchase their copy of the Show and Shine Calendar. Considered the "car show bible," this calendar lists over 1300 events throughout the year in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. If you want to show your car or just go to shows, this is a must have. If you can't make it out to Sharonville on Sunday then you can order on from their web site: http://showandshinecalendar.com/.
I'll be out there tomorrow checking out all the cars and I'll have my copy of the Show and Shine. Make sure to pick up your copy and if you see me, be sure to say, "hi."

Not only is it free admission but you see cars like this Ford Model A. And check out the set of official Ford tools that are on display as well.
This 1935 Ford Roadster was one of the fastest and sportiest cars of its time. With a 221 cubic inch L Head V 8, this car could run with the best of them. That engine won a lot of fans, including Clyde Barrow of criminal Bonnie and Clyde fame who allegedly wrote Henry Ford a letter praising how the engine was perfect for powering a getaway car.

The last car for today is one of the oldest in the museum, a 1910 Brush. This 10 horsepower single cylinder vehicle could reach speeds of over 25 miles per hour. Not much but keep in mind that in 1910 there weren't paved roads. The car cost all of $600 when new.
