It’s back! I didn’t go to last year’s car show at the Canton Liberty Fest, after the car club closed down that had traditionally hosted the show.
But this year, I decided to return to check out the classic cars and trucks.
Glad I did!
I’ve been a old car buff for years, my dad loved cars and it’s one of the things we shared in common.
For the first time in over 20+ years of going to the Liberty Fest car show, I saw more women showcasing their vehicles than in the past.
Not sure if it’s because Royal Oak, Michigan based United Street Machines Association has more women members.
Personally, I hope it’s a trend!
It was a gray cloudy day, and it seemed like it might rain at any minute.
With water-soaked ground from the spring rains over the pasts few weeks, the show organizers definitely had more to deal with than normal at this weekend’s show.
Several areas were roped off, and you had to watch where you walked to avoid puddles and water in the grass.
What Cars Stood Out for Me?
One of my favorite vehicles this year was the 1960 Chrysler Imperial Crown convertible in a champagne color.
The detail on the Chrysler Imperial Crown is incredible, from the wire mesh grill with Imperial written in script, the chrome eagle on the hood, to the bullet-style tail lamps of the fins in the back, to the square steering wheel inside.
Yes, a square steering wheel! Did you notice the pushbuttons on the dashboard?
The owner grew up in Canada, the car previously belonged to her mother who recently died.
For me, a car show isn’t complete without a Chevrolet Bel Air.
I saw several of them at the show, but this blue Bel Air stood out for me.
The owner color-coordinated their outfit to match the colors of her car. And she even let me sit in the car!
Gorgeous, isn’t it?
