(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – This group is mostly made up of muscle cars, trucks, and classics. This is definitely GM-heavy, but the other makes (other than AMC) are represented to some degree. Who wouldn’t like a warmed over leaning-tower-of-power in a cherry Valiant convertible. A clean, updated IH Scout still running IH power is a pretty cool sight. There were at least 3 Wimbledon white Ford Fairlane 500s using a thunderbolt-style teardrop hood in attendance. My youngest got to set in one and rev it a little. I don’t know where I went wrong, but he loves sixties Ford stuff. He wants a ’66 Mustang fastback or a ’64 Fairlane and says diecast just doesn’t cut it. We all got problems son.
There were two Datsun Z cars at the show and this black example was pretty nice. The other was in our first gallery. That one was red and was sitting raised on a transporter elevator. When I was taking a photo of it a family was calling that one a ‘350Z’. In their defense it had 350Z badges on it. More of those folks with a fingertip hold on their passion and knowledge of cars. Yes I did politely correct them.
Zakira’s Garage had this perfect example of a red ’58 Corvette sitting in their area. At least I think it’s a ’58. I am not a connoisseur, but I’m pretty sure that hood style was a one-year deal. Maybe not.
This concludes our coverage of the early season show in Cincinnati to kick off 2020 ISCA events.
We hope you enjoyed.
