How often does a young man get invited to a car show by his mom? Not very often. So when my dearest mum asked us to join her at Embry Riddle for just such an event I couldn’t refuse.
So the three of us headed over to the aeronautical university on Sunday, me with camera in hand.
And some kit cars powered by Fords:
There was some 80’s muscle in the form of a TransAm:
There was a stripped down, home-brewed roadster with lots of plates:
There were some rarities, like this AMC Matador:
which was nicknamed the ‘Flying Wombat’:
There was some Mopar Muscle:
in the form of a Dodge Challenger:
There was even a first generation Pontiac GTO!:
It was a decent car show, but overall it felt very disorganized. Cars were not arranged in any type of order. The show was spread over two parking lots, with one containing motorcycles and ‘import’ cars that looked mostly stock. The music was an odd mix of classic rock from the stage speakers and hip hop floating over from the aerosol artist area. It was still fun though.
Mom is hoping that the car show that Yavapai College is putting on next month will be better. I’ll definitely be showing up to take a few more snaps. :)
