This is my very first car show since the Covid melt down. Usually I go to car shows every single weekend. Adding 3,000 to 4,000 miles a year to my 57 Pontiac and 500 to 1,000 miles a year to my 74 Chev Caprice Estate. This very rural town of Chatsworth, Ontario hosted this great event with live music, beer tent, lots of real friendly folks and a whole lot of sweet looking time machines. Check out the rides and cheers.[Reply to this comment]

You finally made it to a car show this year! Happy for you George!
I like the 55 Ford two tone, very nice. Your 57 Pontiac looks good, nice condition and one of the best in the show. Amazing to see Tractors at a car show but I guess being a rural town the spectators love it.
Big turnout of cars and much needed for the people to get out again. Cheers, Mario[Reply to this comment]

I always liked those big rigs with the sleeper cabs. Some of those cabs are like living rooms. A friend of mine's dad when I was in High School had one and used to drive NY to Cali every week. He was home on weekends but gone all week. Real cool! Cheers.[Reply to this comment]

Hmmmm, let's see.
I grew up honed on John Deeres so I'll take those 3 in a row. i cut my teeth on a John Deere B, then a John Deere 50 with the exclusive roll-a-matic front wheels. Spent many a day in the broiling sun of PA summers putt putt puttin' up one hill down the next. Cutting hay, raking hay, baling hay....and before you knew it, the day was done, AND SO WAS I!!
A great life, enjoyed sitting up on that seat thinking how big I was to be operating all that equipment. Driving a tractor, a baler, and a hay wagon prepared me for my tractor trailer days.
I'll take the farm life over the OTR tractor trailer life ANY DAY!!!
George, did you mean the movie with Dennis Weaver in The Duel? Yes that little Mopar he was driving just didn't have the umpf to get away from that sinister driver and rigg. A fun and intense movie for those that like that kind.[Reply to this comment]

Rob, yes it is that great film with Dennis Weaver. I first saw it on the boob tube in 1971 because it was a made for TV movie. Then it became so big world wide that it was rereleased in the theatres with added footage. Steven Spielberg chose the Plymouth for the movie just based on that bright red paint. Man verses machine has always been a hot topic. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]
