On Friday night I got the opportunity to drive a 1970 Z28 Camaro to the local car show for a great night out with some friends and family. I must say there really is something about the low growl of a muscle car. Looking forward to the next show with anticipation and excitement.
Included with this post is several of the cars at the show. Look for the orange and black Camaro that’s the one I drove to the show. (insert large smile here).
So today I went to the World of Wheels car show in Pittsburgh. I walked around the show photographing cars that cost more than most houses. I’m talking about pristine cars, beautiful, perfect in every way. But which cars do you think had the biggest crowd around them? The Rat Rods. For those of you that don’t know what a rat rod is this is the wikipedia definition:
A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s. Most rat rods appear “unfinished”, regardless of their status, as only the vehicle’s bare essentials are driven.
So todays post will have a couple of rat rods and I will post some of the other cars over the next few days.
Tomorrow I’m heading out to the ice festival in Ligonier, Pa hopefully I’ll find a few interesting things to post.
