Clover Park Technical College Car Show 2012

So it has been a while since I have been able to get to a car show so I was super excited when I was able to go to the annual Clover Park Technical College car show and open house a few weeks ago. Here are a few of the many cars were there. Please enjoy!

I thought it was funny that the first car that I would come across at the car show was representing  the LeMay Family Collection.

I found the steering wheel of this particular vehicle to be very interesting it makes me think of a something you might see on a boat. 

This next vehicle is a 1968 "Army Mule." I have never seen such a vehicle. It was completely flat except for the seat and steering wheel.
According to what I have read on the internet they were used in Vietnam for carrying ammunition and rifles.
Here is a link to a couple cool videos of the truck in action:  M274 crossing meadow ; M274 Riding and Military Mule .

Then there was the cute 1957 Isetta. 

I was excited that this year they had one opened so I could see the inside.

A closer look of the Isetta's interior. My guess is that this is the shift stick.

A 1956 Chevrolet

I miss hood ornaments. It seems a real shame not to have them on modern vehicles. It was like a crowning piece of art to the automobile.

 A 1965 Shelby Cobra - Isn't it beautiful?

1922 Model T Depot Hack  - Fascinating bit of information this vehicle was created and designed for taking passengers from the railroad depots according to

A beautiful 1965 Corvette Stingray. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. It was a cold but sunny day and it was a lot of fun.

'Til next time have a wonderful day everyone!

  1. Yep, this collection was amazing! And I’m with you in missing hood ornaments on modern cars. They are the automakers’ emblems and they serve as a way for them to show to the world how proud they are of their creations. I also find them interesting for they somehow speak of the cars’ history.
