This weekend in Smithfield Virginia is the annual car show. Yes, it's the Smithfield that is home to Smithfield Ham. No, we didn't spot any hams, just cars. If you're really into ham, you can use Google to visit the Ham Cam online and see the world's oldest ham!
Some of these cars are older than me even, so if I'm not chock full of information, well, you can always look it up or just see if you spot something you've never seen before. Most of today's show was all about America, with tons of Chevy, Ford, Dodge, Chrysler, even a DeSoto and a Hudson!
Buckle up, here we go, here's most of the cars we spotted on display:
|You can't get much more American than this|
|OK, a refurbished modernized DeSoto is probably more American!|
|Photo is upside down, but at least you can read it now|
|Yes, I'll take a classic yellow V8 hot rod, thanks!|
|Why can't Ford keep putting dogs on their hood ornaments?|
|78. Lincoln. It's. So. Loooooooooooong!|
|Gold. Oldsmobile. It's a thing|
|When air filters were ROUND!|
|So Much GOLD!|
|Your basic "Special".|
|Still looking for the seat belts and airbags in here|
|Epic Chrome Dagmars. You can look it up.|
|Race prepped Mustang, here's the fuel cell and battery.|
Also had race seats, belts, cage, and Hoosier tires.
|Ford Custom. 'MERICA!|
|Very few foreign cars, a French 2CV.|
|Chevy Nomad. Note sliding rear window|
|Ford Bronco. Always loved this version. Look for the NEW Bronco from|
Ford in a few more years.
|International Harvester van|
|Plymouth Road Runner|
|Mustang, Cobra Jet engine|
|hey, another Chevy truck!|
|Seriously, when was the last time you saw|
a 1940 PLYMOUTH pickup truck?
I bet that house is older.
|"Product of Chrysler Corp USA"|
|If you don't like the black/white look, just think 1940|
|Seen a Plymouth Scamp lately? I didn't think so.|
|You probably can't buy an interior like this today.|
Nor should you want to!
|Maybe this hot rod will help you forget the Scamp!|
|1964 Dodge Dart. Also not seen everyday!|
|1936 Chevy. Really older than me!|
|Corvette. Rhymes with "MERICA!"|
|I think this is the Dodge Super Bee|
|Now THATS a logo!|
|OK, so maybe it has TWO LOGOS! We spotted|
two Super Bees today!
|Even in Yellow, the Corvette is a winner!|
|Cale Yarborough Mercury Cyclone.|
|I'm SURE you haven't seen one of these today!|
|Here's that HUDSON!|
|Hudson was later bought out by American Motors|
|You could still buy a Hudson in 1957|
|Even I can change spark plugs if they're on TOP of the engine!|
|442 number 1|
|There was live music. Believe it or not, this band was playing some|
|Even this old Ford Fire Truck was nice|
|Little kids love the Mini|
|442 number 2|
|This was cool, maybe a different color next time|
|Detail on the Dart|
|I believe this is a Ford Thames from Britain|
|Proper bonnet folding|
