Auto Barn Car Show-10-8-11


It was a beautiful fall morning in Concord, NC for the Auto Barn Car Show.  The Auto Barn sells classic and muscle cars and has a very large area in one of the old mill buildings.  Another of the buildings contains a very large flea market with lots of things to check out.  The car show was held in their huge parking lot.  Car enthusiasts of all ages were present including one young boy in his very own hot rod!!

 

 

 

Bobby Bonds saw me pull in and motioned me to a spot with the Carolina Muscle club.  After getting the car ready to show, it was time to check out the car.  There were a number of interesting ’50’s Chevrolets, especially the two yellow ones.

 

 

 

This T-Bird was unique, especially the carburetion.  It had two marine sidedraft carbs which gave the engine a very unusual look.  Nice car.

 

 

 

 

 

There were other fine Fords as well including a shoebox convertible and a fine red T-Bird.

 

 

 

 

 

’60’s GM cars were well represented.  Hard to beat a big black Cadillac convertible.  The white Biscayne with the 427 was a sleeper.  And the black ’65 Impala won best of show.  It was spectacular.

 

 

 

 

Best engine went to this T Bucket.  Lots of admirers for this car.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have to show this 1977 Z28 Camaro.  Very original and was featured in a magazine.  Never did see the owner.

 

 

 

 

Great show.  Now it was on to Kannapolis for their second last cruise-in of the year.  To see more photos, go to:  http://s188.photobucket.com/albums/z76/jerhofer/Autobarn%20Cruise-In%2010-8-11/
