Sycamore Township Car Show

The very first year of the Sycamore Township Car Show was a huge success. The show field was packed with cars and people were parking in nearby lots to wander through and see all of the magnificent vehicles. To see what I mean, here is a link to the very first post from that first show:

The second year brought a very small turn out. The main reason was that the show was scheduled against a number of other popular car shows and events. But last year things moved and now in its sixth year, this show is beginning to grow again with a number of very nice cars coming out.

Included in this year's field of cars was a beautiful Chevrolet Impala, a C 3 Corvette, a Chrysler New Yorker, a Ford F 100 pick-up truck, a 1964 Ford Mustang, a more modern Mustang, a 1955 Chevy Bel Air, and a sweet looking Dodge Charger RT.

End of the Week for British Car Day

Today is the end of the week and will wrap up my coverage of British Car Day, at least for now. There were lots and lots of other great British cars on display this year and I will eventually get to all of them. Today, though, I'm showing cars by Lotus, including a gorgeous 1972 Europa Type 74, along with some DMC DeLoreans. As always, feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email at

Various Cars at British Car Day

In order to have enough pictures to really justify a post, today is sort of a hodge podge of cars. I have a beautiful Jaguar XK-1 along with a Morris Minor and a Metropolitan. I've also tossed in a couple of Sunbeam Tigers as well as a Porsche 928 and a Volkswagen Beetle.
