Yesterday was a beautiful Saturday in our little town in Northern California. This photo is an overview looking down Broad Street. The weather was perfect and in the low 70's. The sky was blue, the sun was shining and it was a special day for showing off cars.
Here are a few lined up to get parked along Broad Street. As you can see there is quite the variety.
Here is a typical street scene of cars and people. The crowds all day were many and well behaved. Our little town flourishes on tourism and this hopefully helped. The shops were busy and the restaurants were full. Many of the shops were having sidewalk sales and specials to offer to the buying public. For the adults there was also a wine stroll that is very fun.
Here is Mr. C wearing his black Lotus shirt standing by his black Lotus. He is so technical and quite the Lotus expert so he loves it when guys ask detailed questions. Yes, this is the car that was on fire on Sunday afternoon and burned through both fuel lines. There were NO fuel lines to be found in North America as they are so unique. By Wednesday Mr. C had made even better flame resistant fuel lines and installed them. By Thursday he was driving the car. By Friday he took me for a drive and bought me lunch at a lovely restaurant down the hill. (Oh I was a nervous wreck...but not to worry all was fine.)
This is another Lotus and these are our friends who drove from Woodland, CA to enter the show. They are such a nice couple and we enjoy them very much. We met last year when we drove our Lotus's to the National Convention in Red Rock Nevada.
Here is one of the cars that won my heart. It was a 1939 beauty.
I did say there was quite the variety. From the photos you can see many different types and ages and makes. This is a little cutie that caught my eye. Each of the cars is juried to be able to enter into this show. This is the second year it has been held in town. Last year it poured rain and they only had a very few cars that were brave enough to get so wet. We were not! Our money we paid merely got donated to United Way and that is just fine. A good fundraiser is always at the top of my list.
All in all this was a splendid day. Chatting with nice people and seeing so many fine automobiles. Shopping and dining locally. Visiting with lots of friends that came to view the cars. And that perfect weather was blissful.
I adore my little town and the activities that abound here. This is why I volunteer for our local Chamber of Commerce. I believe in who we are and what we do. I hope you enjoyed this post of photos.
Wonderful week ahead. Lots of graduations have been occurring and now for most it is officially SUMMER! Hip Hip Hooray!!!
