Show N Tell

The Show N Tell Car Show held at the VYO Haffey Fieldhouse in Reading was a show I'd been hoping to get to for a long time but for whatever reason I always missed it. I'm sure glad I went this year. Well over 100 cars were on display including this sweet looking Lincoln, an MGA, a Ford T bucket street rod, a Ford Fairlane, a Chevy Camaro Super Sport, a gorgeous mid-50s Ford, a Mercedes 560 SL, a 1989 Camaro now in its second generation with the same family, and a 1969 Mercury Marauder.

MoPar At the Pumpkin Run Nationals


The Pumpkin Run Nationals featured a good collection of MoPar rides at their 42nd annual event. Among the many cars sitting in MoPar Country was this custom Plymouth, a 1964 Chrysler 300, a pre-war Dodge sedan, a Plymouth GTX, a Chrysler 300, a Plymouth Valiant Signet 200, a 1935 Plymouth Deluxe, a 1968 Dodge Dart GT, and a 1967 Plymouth.








Good Causes On the Hill

The Ninth Annual Headin' For the Hill Classic Car Show supported some great causes. Proceeds went toward the Disabled American Vets and the North College Hill building fund. Perhaps that was part of the reason so many magnificent cars rolled out for this event. Among those on display was a classic Chevy Bel Air, a Chevrolet El Camino, a Porsche 928, a few Porsche 944s, a very new 911, late model Chevy Corvette, and an absolutely stunning 1912 Maxwell A.

Some Great Variety On the Hill

The Ninth Annual Headin' For the Hill Car Show in North College Hill featured a wide variety of vehicles on display. Not only was there a little of everything for everybody but quite a few rides you didn't even know you wanted to see. A perfect example is this highly customized Chevy school bus. Just imagine riding to school on this baby. Also on display was a beautiful Ford V8, a late 1950s Chevy, a worn but classic Mercury, a Chevrolet El Camino, a 1957 Ford Fairlane convertible, a Mustang Cobra, a customized pre-War Ford street rod, and a brilliant Dodge Challenger R/T.

Lots of Cars Went Headin' For the Hill

The Ninth Annual Headin' For the Hill Classic Car Show brought around 150 beautiful machines to the streets of North College Hill. For as impressive a number as that is it was slightly off of last year's celebration which marked an historic anniversary for the city. Still, a ton and a half of cars is nothing to laugh at especially with such gems as this late model Chevy Camaro. Other cars lining the city's main drag included some sweet looking Corvettes, a 1963 Ford Falcon convertible, a 1959 Edsel, a rare Chevy Cosworth Twin Cam Vega, a gorgeous AMC AMX, and a brilliant Oldsmobile 442.
