Default Weekly Car Show... Professional Cars

I regularly stop by a weekly (Friday night) car show. This is a year-'round car show and occasionally there are professional cars there.

I did go there tonight and, sure enough, there were professional cars there (3).

All hearses. A 1983 and 1972 Cadillac and a 1988 Buick.
Here are some photos to start with.

I have other photos from the last 1 or 2 years and will post them here, too, as time allows.

1983 Cadillac...




Two hearses ('88 Buick and '72 Cadillac)

Looks like another '72. And definitely a different climate!

Here are more photos of the '72.
Coming soon will be photos of the 1988 Buick Hearse.

I agree. Here are more photos, these date back to March, 2009...
A '63 Ambulance and a '71 Hearse. I do have more ambulance photos, along with Hearses, so hang on.

I have been to several shows in the high desert area and so far I have had the only "PRO" car there. Where are the shows that you are going to?

The last set were from the West Hills car meet. It was every Friday night until it moved to Bob's Big Boy in Northridge. That is where the other photos were taken.. the first 3 sets... At Bob's in Northridge... corner of Corbin Ave and Nordhoff St. in the Target parking lot.

More photos coming soon!

There were more pro-cars at tonight's show. Here are photos of a '66 Hearse (which really needed a paint job) and a '63 Ambulance.
It's getting to that time of the year when it gets darker earlier when I am at the show so these photos were taken at dusk.

The '66 belongs to a young lady who has had it from one mechanic to another since she bought it. She loves the car and has spent thousands getting road worthy! Glad to see she finally is able to enjoy it.

The '63 belongs to my online buddy Nik, he's also a master at building custom Hot Wheels and miniatures (all procar related builds). Next time you see him, say "Dr. Feelgood... Hotrod Dwayne says HI!" i'm sending him a couple Unity spotlights soon for his cars. Thanks so much for the pix
