The Vintage Chevrolet Club of America On Tour

The Vintage Chevrolet Club Of America made a stop in town the other day. It rained the day before, and the morning of, but, it dried out enough to show off some old iron. The sun even came out for a while.

These old (none newer then 1954) cars are not trailer queens. They drove these cars here. Several Texas plates, a few from Kansas, I think I saw one Arizona plate, and a couple from Arkansas.

The first pic is a 1928 Chevy open cab truck. Driven from Texas. Can you imagine riding from Texas in that, at what, 45 mph?

Anyway, enjoy the old iron.

Awesome photos.

The wooden wheel spokes are pretty cool on that one truck.

Excellent.
Yes, you're right, driving the trucks much distance at anything above 50 would be grueling, to say the least. The second generation '55 pickups were much improved but even the '58 Chevy pickup I drove in High School demanded I pay attention above 40.

The cars were a little better but definitely not built for the interstates.

Sweet Grav! Thanks for posting, I just love those old trucks.

I was very impressed that these folks were driving their machines, rather than trailering them. There was one car (to the left of the convertible pictured below) that was completely untouched, no restoration at all. You could look at the car and tell that, at most, it was pulled out of the barn, and made to run and that's all. And they drove that car from Arkansas!! Multiple pockmarks on the windshield, and all. It was pre-1930. Some of the cars you could tell had only been painted. Some had replacement/re-done interiors. Others were obviously no-expense-spared total restorations.

And drivers, every one.

The amazing thing about most barn finds is they lived much if not all of their life on the farm. That means they weren't pampered with things like paved roads and gentle drives, but rode hard and put up wet most every day.
You take real nice pictures there young fella.

Yeah. Thanks for posting these pictures. That town is a perfect backdrop for these cars to be on display.

I went to their website and see different chapters have different events coming up. A handful in NJ in the coming months, and one in Silver Spring MD in the fall. But these nice old cars will look out of place among the modern office buildings and parking garages of Silver Spring. This small town in Kentucky is the perfect setting.

In the first pic in post #7, the blue five-window pick-up, you can see our old jail, and jailers' quarters.

It's called The Rock. Solid limestone blocks. Huge ones. Built 1880-something.

Yes, I've been there, and done that.

Tourists. We don't keep 'em, we just let 'em look at it, then we let 'em leave.

The Rock closed for good in the late eighties. My high school carpentry and masonry classes helped in the construction of the administrative portion of the new jail. The welding class assembled the crossbars that were installed in the air ducts.

The old Jailers' Quarters houses the county historical archives.
