Yeah great pictures. Some really nice rides there. Is the one silver art deco car with the front wheels covered a Delehay? That is probably the sexiest car i've ever seen. Also the last red car a Graham?

Thanks-jeremy

Is your talking about the silver car on the rotisserie I don't know what that thing is but its a beauty. Actually its not silver its in bare metal.

The second care you asked about I believe its this one.

That is a customized 41 Buick.

Awesome pics, thanks for posting!

Man do I miss that show, it was a few miles from me in Oakland from '49 to around 2005. I showed a few and had such a good time going to it. I have a program out in my garage on the wall from 1971 where my dad wrote in it what a great time he had with me. It's a treasure of mine, as is many other memories of the show.

I plan on going next year bringing my friend Steve.

Really something Bam. Imagine all the money spent on those rides.

One Chevy I saw had a really wide 'serpentine belt'!

We have an auto show here once a year too. Yeah, really a big deal at the convention center. It's all the new car dealers showing their shit for sale. Used to be a Frank Marotta show with lots of nice stuff + the dealers.

Many of you guys a lucky to have stuff like that. Brian, you can go since you're a lot closer than me. Steve will go nuts.

I'd love to go to a show like that. The quality of the rides is impressive.

The headlights on that buick look like graham headlights to me. The car is very sharp. Not sure about the headlights.

that bare metal car is a Delahaye. I did some research Absolutely stunning.

Thanks again for posting pics for those of us who can't make it!!!

Yeah the show is awesome. Great cars and good times what else could a car guy ask for. For the most part car guys are good people and love to talk about their rides. I aslo got to meet one of my car heroes Ron Covell (I should have took a pic with him) nice guy. The real show is in the parking lot, you will be amazed by the cars that people drive to the show.

Brain let me know if you go next year I would like to say hello.

Yes Bamm, I would love to hang out. That show means a lot to me, I can't explain it. But to put a car in and to hang out on set up day is one of the treasures in my life. Ron Covell, are you kidding, he is the definition of "Gentleman" and "Master metal worker" all wrapped up in one! He made one comment, just looked at my brother and I as we were drooling over his work telling him we wish we could do it, he looked right at us with an "a matter of fact" look on his face and said "Well of course you can do it, just take your time and do it" or something like that. He literally changed how we looked at things and the Roadster my brother and I were building was in that show a couple of years later getting rave reviews!

I REALLY need to get my friend Steve down there, so that is my motivation for next year. :D

Yeah Mr. Covell is a really nice man. I told him I've learn so much from him over the years and thanked him for his DVD's. He is just a humble guy. Last year I met another one of my metal work heroes Ken Sakamoto of Sunchaser. Have you heard of him? Amazing metal shaper. I spoke to him for about 30 min. He gave me all kinds of tips to try. Those guys love sharing their knowledge to anyone that is interested. I've always found that the most knowledable people seem to be the most humble. There is not a trace of arrogance in either one of those guys.

If you don't know what Ken Sakamoto looks like here is a pic of him. If you see him at a show you will walk away with more knowledge than you thought you had.lol He is a very nice man and extremely talented.

Yep, met Ken and bought a few things from him over the years. Yes, another great guy. It's so nice to see those people like Gene Winfield who don't have their egos filling up a big rig trailer like some of them. Very refreshing indeed.

Gene Winfield yep thats another one. I met him also. I also had the pleasure of meeting Bill Hines. Those guys are old and still doing amazing work. Its in there blood.lol I'd bet their blood is full of lead and paint toxins.lol They would probably die without it in their systems.lol

Here is a truck at the show that was painted by Gene Winfield. You really can't tell in the pic but this truck has one of Gene Winfields signature fade away paint jobs.

Looks like 924 pieces. I can't believe the works on display in that link. Imagine all the restoration $$ dollars $$ and the millions of hours in doing this machines?

I was surprised to see so many 63 - 65 Riviera's. And, the imagination some people have. Great presentation LS6 - Thank you.

OK, bam, how did you get that photo to copy for you? Usually, a right click and copy to my pictures will do but not on these photos.
So, how did you do it? Please.

I think Bam may have taken the picture himself. I use a program called Snagit that allows me to copy anything on my screen.

Pictures are for sale so locked. Need a 10 to 13 year old kid to find a way.

Len and LS6, bam probably was fortunate enough to take the photo because of where he lives while we wait for MORE snow tomorrow!

Brian will stop on the way home today and load up on film for his Instamatic Camera (goes well with the Rambler).

Bam, you're a lucky person to be able to see this. You, Brian and any others living on the coast you do.

We would be really lucky to see 10%, and that would be a lot, here in the northeast and would have to be summer only.

Anyway, thanks for sharing and keep it up; you and LS6.
