One of the final shows I attend every year happens in the home town of the Jack Daniels distillery. Lynchburg, Tennessee (POP. 361) (or so the bottles used to say) actually has a little over 6,500 people, according to the latest census records. On weekends through the summer the number of tourists in town is probably twice that number. Despite the still warm weather, as autumn has yet to arrive in Tennessee, this show was a must attend for me. Excellent food, great cars and old friends are every where. Enough set-up, lets get to the cars!

People who bring their cars to shows are there to show them off. Hood up pictures are kind of annoying, but sometimes that's all you are gonna get! A great looking '55 Chevy.

These Mach 1 Mustangs have been unloved for a very long time. This yellow one shows why that attitude is not really justifiable.

This year turned out to be a pretty good show! I've been to this one when it was so cold, you had to hang out in the car, pouring down rain, over 400 cars in attendance and once when 5 cars attended! Regardless of the circumstances, this show always entertains! You know, on second thought, fall can hold off for a little while longer! Lets Keep on Cruisin'!

What do you guys think of all these beautiful cars, baking in the late summer

sun? Let us know in the COMMENTS below and as always...

  • Yes, it's a difficult one. Having the bonnets up ruins the aesthetics, but engines are pretty important.

    Which is why I love it, on a smaller scale at our model car show, when we have two of the same car. One can be all closed, the other all open.

    • "So, that's why I ended up with two 300 SLs Gullwings. Yes, the missus wasn't happy, with her car outside and all, but what can ya do?"
