I've been to Williams, Arizona. But that was a while ago. Your car show sounds really neat. If you ever get up to the Western Slope of Colorado, you should check out the car museum at the Gateway Canyons's really something. I would be happy to be your tourguide and help you with any information you may want on the Western Slope of CO.

Carra:  I know that a lot of people in my age range love that 57 Chevy, but I have always been a fan of the 56 Ford.  Your first photo showed a pink and white one that I would just LOVE to have.  Thanks for all the photos.

That pink car reminds me of Clint Eastwood in Pink Cadillac. Maybe that's one of the first Mary Kaye cars.

So it looks like I grew up in the "Classic Car" generation. That could explain why I like classic cars. LOL
