Pictures From Calumet City IL Auto Show - Name That Car!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL 481.010183

When these pictures were snapped, no idea of the type of car came to my mind, they were just taken.  I realize  Car Buffs will wonder WHY the year, model, and make are not labeled..... It's because..... we are giving YOU the honor to  GUESS!  

In the previous blog, Calumet City Auto Show,  announcement was given of this sponsored event by the Calumet City Chamber of Commerce.  The show took place Sunday, September 9, 2007 at the River Oaks Mall East Calumet City, IL

I'm an old car buff...My first car as a teenager was '66 T-Bird.  I bet it was a great car show!!!  We're having the annual American Heat & Hot Rod Car show this weekend....Old cars & thousands of motorcycles in Palm Springs...WooHoo!!

Diane, we had a car show about three months ago.  They closed off Main Street and lined the street with old cars. Some of them sure did bring back some great memories :)

By the way, Diane I did not receive the e-mail if you sent it.  souto@snet.net

Diane - I love car shows but I couldn't name the cars.  I like the little white one.

I can only name one of them for sure.  Well maybe because cars are not my thing.  I love looking at old cars, but it is like art to me.  I do not know the painter or the name, just know what I like to look at.

It looks like there where a lot of cars.  I bet it was fun.

I like the C4 Corvette with the body moldings...it looks like it has been lowered a bit.

Hi Sam!  C4?  Is that what it's called?  Didn't know that.  You must know your cars.... thanks for checking in.

Diane-From the words of my 14 year old boys when they saw the pictures, "sweetness".  That looks like a great time.  We have those out here and it's fun to go through the car shows.  Especially with my parents because the reminiscing starts flowing.

Diane, so many of those cars are familiar to me. My dad would buy a 'clunker', fix it up and drive it before reselling. He had a '57 T-Bird convertible, my first car was a '66 Mustang and I know I learned how to drive a standard transmission 'on the column' in one of those turquoise 'boats' you showed! LOL!! Thanks for the walk down memory lane!

I think I could narrow most of them down to brand, model, and a couple of years... plus or minus. 

The top two are a 49 Mercury.  Then we have a 79ish Trans Am, 67ish Impala, 30 Ford Model A (twice), 40 Chevy, 64 Impala, 56 T-bird, 70s Corvette (C3), another Model A (twice), Pontiac Solstice 2006 or so, C4 Corvette (think 1980s), the yellow convertible seems to be about a 39 Ford, and the blue sedan below I think is also a 39 or 40 Ford.  Obviously the 57 Chevy is next, and then we have a early 1960s Corvette and another 40ish Ford (with flames), two Model A pics, and then the last ones are a Model T (it has a small block chevy engine, too).  

How did i do?

Debbie:  You could have been in car sales then, yes?  Glad this brought memories to you.  Your Dad had the right idea.... much to learn from having a clunker!  (Most of ours used to be)  Do you attend car shows? (I know whatcha thinking.... WHO has time  LOL)
