Khedive Shriners Car Show

I'm not a professional photo guy, but this angled shot of a Cadillac Fleetwood fins and tail-lights turned out pretty cool! 'MERICA!

After changing the oil in the FIAT at home this morning in a lame attempt to beat the heat, we headed out for a local car show. A local Shriners group sponsors this every year, and there was a HUGE turn out. Since I don't know much about the Shriners other than seeing them in parades in their little cars and fezzes, I did some Google research and found out that they do a lot of good things for charities, and run hospitals for kids across the country. Good for them!

Without going into all the details, which I don't know anyway, I'll just put some of the highlights here of cool cars we saw today. Mostly American classics, a few European cars, and just lots of car fans enjoying this free car show.

Above, this 1970 Dodge Super Bee had some faded paint, but I'm guessing it started out as Plum Crazy. Brian and the Lemons Team have painted their Dodge Coronet a similar shade of purple, so I'm always interested in seeing how this color looks.

Next, some detailed looks at a cool Studebaker. These are cool because of course they don't make 'em anymore, so seeing the logo and badges is always a new experience for me.
