Barrie, Ontario, Canada Car Show Cruise.

Wednesday August 30, 2023

I took in the weekly Barrie cruise night that has been held every Wednesday for many years. The event is held at a beautiful area of Barrie called Heritage Park at Simcoe Lake. I took my 1974 Chev Caprice Estate and met up with my good buddy Ted M. that I have know since 1982. The day was very cold but there were many sweet cars and some good old car folks to talk to. Check out the rides. Cheers

Wow George, that 68 Impala SS with the hidden Headlights is one rare and fast car as you noted. I've never seen one in my life. Only on TV. That's my reader's choice. Thanks for posting your photos. Rob

Another great car show George even though you said it was a cold day. Better than hot and humid!

These are the cars that caught my eye:

The 51 Buick with the tilting hood. I wonder if it tilts both ways or just one way. I noticed the plugs on the left side so easy to change. But must be hard to get to the right side to do work.

The 68 Impala is unusual with hideaway headlights.

The pair of 55 and 56 Chevys look good together.

I love the 58 Impala, a one time design, so clean.

Finally, the 55 Ford Crown Vic is a rare beauty. Too bad it was 6 volts until 56 when it was upgraded to 12 volts.

Wonderful show so many really nice looking cars and trucks. Thank you for sharing George. Cheers, Mario
