|1960 Chevy with 348 six pack|
I wanted to find the rifle range to shoot my gun today. I had never been there and had directions, but failed to locate the place. ( Google Earth showed my error, so I made new directions for next time.)

As we enjoyed the drive anyway, we noticed a big car show going on. I did not have a camera, but Kathy convinced me to stop and enjoy the sights. Sure glad she did. I have a fondness for 1960 Chevy Impalas' with the big flat fins and cool doors and dash.
|Always liked the valve covers on the 348/409 engines|
This one has an alternator upgrade, but otherwise stock. I worked on these as a kid, see the dwell window on the distributor cap just to the right of the vacuum advance. That was a pain in the rear.
There were about 150 show cars there, but my favorite was two Ford Falcon Sprint cars, a 1963 and 1964. This was the first time I had seen a real one. We had built copies as teens, but these are factory stock. Very light cars with a 289 Ford and 4 speed transmission. Built to be street racers with the Chevy Nova etc of the time.
