I enjoy going to car shows and automobile museums. There’s something about old classic cars that evokes happy memories of days of yore and takes me back in time.
Summertime means classic cars will be seen on the roads as they gather together for car shows in many cities and towns in Southern Ontario all through the summer. Our city has an annual event every July with a parade of cars slowly cruising down the main street and then parking along the curbs, so everyone can enjoy looking at them and chatting with their owners. I love how well-kept they are and many have been beautifully restored.
Cruising on King starts with Show and Shine in Victoria Park where the cars can be viewed all afternoon. There’s entertainment after the parade, a fantastic family event!
The owner invited me to sit in the driver’s seat!
This year I wore my dress with red roses and polkadots with a retro vibe made me fit in with the times!
From Seattle to Toronto to Germany, it’s so fun to attend car shows and browse through car museums. You don’t have to own a vehicle to appreciate it. Below is a selection of photos taken during the past few years.
Last but not least, my little blue Beetle, a classic from 2000, that I plan to keep, and who knows, perhaps my Beetle will be in the parade someday with my grandson behind the wheel!
