Did anyone else make it to the 5th Avenue Car Show today? The weather got off to a rocky start with rain <oh no! not after all the detail work!!!> but it cleared up and the sun was out by lunchtime. Lots of great cars, music & food. Turned out to be a GREAT day! Some photos below:

Yes, we were there, too...fabulous show, as usual.
The FCar assembly was remarkable, as were all the other brands: from Detroit muscle to a very rare '35 Auburn Boat Tail Speedster. We were tardy and didn't get to the Street until ~11:00, and it was packed by then, so your 'set up' pics are great to see. I took a bunch, but mostly close-in, wide angle trying to keep the throngs out of the shot...I'll toss some up later.

Which pic is your ride?

It was only Saturday, tmozer.

We were there, well really we were in town for the Craft Show, but moseyed over to the Car Show, too. Phew, it was crowded. My husband loved the old cars the most and my favorite was that Police Racing Car! I didn't know they did that. Very cool! And yes, it certainly was a NICE day!!

Thanks MotorDavid! We liked the birdcage Maserati & all the other older cars too.... we met the original owner of a '59 Porsche out of Marco, which was cool. Ours is the black z06 above - we're with the West Coast Muscle Club, which is for any type of car with horsepower & we're in front of Pazzo's each year since the show moved from 3rd. You guys should join with your 'vette. Something tells me we just may have met you by our car? If so, it's REALLY such a small world!!!

Judi, I liked the "Beat the Heat" car too - I didn't know they did that either.

Perhaps we should have our own little car meet some Sunday morning for breakfast somewhere. We have a toy too.

Yes, I recognize your Z06, esp those wheels. Veronica & I met you two!
The 'small world' deal, lol!
Best Regards, David & Veronica

Some pics from last Saturday's Fifth Ave Naples car show...fabulous collection of everything from antiques, to MotorCityMuscle to very rare exotics, to blocks of F Cars. I know there is some serious dough in this area, but seeing this kind of expensive stuff, lined up for blocks, is remarkable.
Just a sampling, as I suspect only a few of us reading this forum are fellow car nuts.

We got there at 11:00 ish, and the streets were packed; thus, the close-in wide angle shots, trying to dodge the throngs around the cars.

"Beckford", drop us an email or DM! Hope you two are doing fine.
Best Regards, mD

Nice pictures, motordavid. Not too much going on up there today, but still a beautiful day, wasn't?

Back in 1999, I, an old Grandmother already by then, had a hankering for a 1999 Mitshubishi Turbo Eclipse with the big spoiler. I think people thought it was age inappropriate for me, but what the hey, I loved 'em on the road. So, I went ahead and got one. I still have it, and drive it, and hope it becomes a classic one day. If it's acceptable, I'm in for breakfast, ha ha.

GREAT photos, David! Love the line-up of F-cars especially, awesome shot!

We emailed you & Veronica last Sunday, maybe it landed in your spam folder or something?

Today was gorgeous, wasn't it? Great day for cruising!
