The car show in Carthage was just one component of the festivities for the small community. It was a festival with Art and Crafts booths, activities for the children and of course food booths.
Typical Saturday in Small Town Texas where the family comes out to spend the day and look at some great example of Detroit History and have a little fun. The cars were a great addition and attraction for the day. I had two cars on display, my 1970 Cougar Eliminator and my 1965 Mustang 289 HP. I was fortunate enough to win 1st place in the Classic car category, which was open to cars from 1950 to 1978 in original form that had not been modified. It was for convertibles and hardtops and my little red 65 Mustang took the trophy home. The Eliminator was in a class for Ford Muscle and it took home the 1st place trophy as well. The car that took home best in show was a 1932 Coupe that had been highly modified and no expense had been spared. It was a beautiful car dressed out in a purple high gloss, plenty of chrome and white leather interior.
There were several Rat Rods in the show and they were a hoot to look at. I was amazed at the attention that the Rat rods drew from the young folks. It was also gratifying to see the number of young folks who were enjoying the cars on display and I noticed many of the teens that were attracted to the pick-ups. I included a few pictures of the show. I was allowed to hand out some samples of 303 protectants and had my business cards available to visit about Cool Rides Online. It was interesting to visit with the guys who shared stories about the ride that they used to have and wished that they still had it.
