Summer Car Show Season is in Full Swing

- This gorgeous E-Type was absolutely immaculate. The interior was fresh and bright, the engine bay was polished, and the exterior was glistening. The gentleman who owns this car takes very good care of it.
- The E-Type was once revered by Enzo Ferrari himself, remarking that it was "the most beautiful car ever made". It certainly looks that way, even when it leaves.
- The Jaguar F-Type is the spiritual successor to the E-Type, which ended production in 1975. The revival of the "Type" nameplate has coincided withe revival of Jaguar, modernizing their design language and attracting interest from younger consumers.
- This sexy classic Mustang was the center of attention for many show-goers. It's hard to resist infatuation with such a beautiful American automotive staple.
- The 2008 Shelby GT500 Super Snake was an $27,995 aftermarket package installed at Shelby's "Special Performance Plant". The engine was rebuilt to increase performance from 540HP to 605HP. A supercharger was also offered, but without a warranty ;)
- The 2015+ Mustang Shelby GT350 is an engineering marvel. Ford's 5.2L "Voodoo" uses a flat-plane crankshaft for weight reduction and better throttle response. Using unequal headers, Ford is able to recreate the classic V-8 rumble we all know and love.
- The Ford Focus RS is Ford's last performance oriented small passenger vehicle for the forseeable future. What a swan song it is, with its 2.3L turbo 4 cylinder sending power to all 4 wheels. It's a shame consumers have moved towards SUVs
- This Lamborghini Aventador is the first one I've seen in person. It's hardly a daily driver, with it's single clutch gearbox jolting you in your seat with each frightening shift. It's firing order is stamped on the engine, as is tradition.

As the weather gets nicer, people flock to car shows to see the beauty of automotive history. I made my way to the local cars and coffee to capture these gorgeous vehicles out in the wild. Here are some of the most notable examples, with some information about each vehicle in the captions. Hope you enjoy!
