Brookfield Car Show 7-22-2012 post

I saw Mike (’65 Turquoise Impala Super Sport) last night in Lombard and he mentioned today’s Brookfield Car Show and even though he gave me directions, I had to resort to my iPhone’s map feature. Mike was there as was Charlie (’64 one-owner Chevrolet Corvair, but no Corvair today). I’d guess there were 200 cars or more.

Please read further to see some ‘teaser’ photos and listen to YouTube videos of some of the CDs played by Showcase Classics. the show’s organizer.

As of Tuesday July 31, I have photos from seven car shows yet to edit.
As of Sunday the 22nd, I am still editing and ‘developing’ photos of four events and it will take me time.

I struck up conversations with four ‘new’ owners & cars  hope to see these fellows & vehicles again so I can flesh out their stories.

  • Joe’s Alpine alpine turquoise ’65 Cadillac Sedan DeVille has only 17,000 original miles, a 429 and 8-track.
  • Don’s burgandy 1983 Ford LTD Crown Victoria in unrestored and beautiful, having won seven show trophies this season including one from the Inaugural Woodridge Cruise Night.
  • Bill’s 1966 red Ford Thunderbird … he recognized me and pointed out that he sits with Bob at Monday Westchester Cruise Nights; Bob often brings his 1955 Chevrolet Bel Aire Coupe with a Continental kit; I have many pictures of the Bel Aire and also of this T-bird.
  • April’s red and white ’58 Chevrolet Yeoman station wagon was similar to the vehicles my family traveled in (no seat belts then) as I was growing up. The mister brought the car to the event.
  • If you don’t see your car here, you may not have been near your car when I was or there was simply not enough time. But “I’ll be back!”
