Y’all know that the character of Beebop in my fantasy adventure series The Gemstone Chronicles, has a dream car – a 1973 Corvette Convertible. Well today, November 9, 2014, Lana and I went to the annual Suwanee Classic Car show. We didn’t get to see Beebop’s car, but there were some beautiful vehicles on display! First, here is Beebop’s 1973 Corvette!
I love the way old trucks look when they are restored or made even better with improvements! The trucks at the show were beautifully done and some even had satellite radio. I know, for purists, the vehicles should be made as close to original as possible, but I like the idea of riding down the road in an old vehicle listening to a good radio!
I didn’t get a picture of the beds of these trucks, but they were all lined with oak boards and were beautiful! The truck below, though, is one of the coolest we saw all day. It is a 1941 Ford truck with Texaco logos. Pretty cool!
Trucks weren’t the only vehicles at the show. There were some unique cars there, too. Take a look at this amazing 1941 Cadillac.
I don’t remember this car from 1980, but it was probably the single most unique car I saw at the show. This is a Comuta-Car and was an electric vehicle. It had a range of 40 miles and could go about 35 mph. Not something to drive out on the Interstate in Atlanta!!
I think the logos on the old cars are amazing! This one is from a Hudson Wasp (which I had never heard of before today) followed by a picture of the car.
Convertibles were everywhere at the show. Here are a couple of my favorites! The first is a Ford Falcon. Good looking car!
The second is a Buick Skylark. I would so drive this car around on the weekends!
One of my favorites in the show was a pink Nash Metropolitan. Yes, it’s tiny, but it would be a fun ride, don’t you think?
Lana had never seen a 2 door station wagon before today, but she got a treat with this Chevy Nomad (1955 or 56). What a great car!
Check out the details on the tailgate of the Nomad. Good stuff!
There were a ton of Mustangs at the show, but Lana’s favorite was this 1965 model. I know the picture isn’t great, but it is dark green with a black vinyl top. Lana really likes the body style!
I hadn’t heard of a Moon Car before today, but there was one at the show. Made in St. Louis, this was a cool looking touring car! I would love to cruise around in it!
No car show would be complete without Corvettes! And there were lots of them at the show. New ones, fairly new ones, and the classics. As cool as the new ones are, like Beebop from the books, I still favor the classics. I chose three pictures to share with you. The first is a beautiful red Corvette convertible that would be a great cruising car!
This second Corvette was amazing. I wonder how fast it will go?
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I would love to have a 1973 Corvette Convertible. But, if I couldn’t have that car, the one below would be a great substitute. This is a white 1971 Corvette with T-Tops. Don’t you think Lana and I would look great cruising at the beach with the tops off? I have some Rayban Wayfarers I could break out for the trip!
I think Lana looks right at home with the Corvette, too!
There were so many more great cars at the Suwanee Classic Car Show. Awesome 1957 Chevys, a few Camaros (Z28s and one really awesome SS Convertible), a Rolls Royce, a Ferrari, Porsches, and many Mopar muscle cars. I didn’t take pictures of all of the cars, but wish I had!
What is your favorite car in the pictures above? What about your dream car? Is it fast or luxurious? Leave me a comment and let me know!
