Cars that REALLY blow your... uh, mind back!

Greetings friends of The Biker Hang-out!

Today I'm taking us all to a...

"Unc, what is this, some kind of a lame copycat thread ?"

No no, we're going to a car show cause it's time to get out of this dusty old cafe for a while.

"We want ice cream!"

No! not till later!

"And Beer! We want beer!"

Dammit! It's 9 A.M.! I think you've had enough!

"Awww."

Let's go.





We're gonna see some cool rides and something for just about everyone. Let's start with one of my favs, a little Cobra.




What? That old Shelby doesn't do it for ya? Okay, see if this 308 Ferrari makes you forget about your bald spot and diminishing testosterone levels.



Or maybe some other Eye-talian stud mobile is just what you need to pull the chicks, a Lambo.




Hang on. we're just getting started... they're not all high horse-power super cars, but still pretty cool, like this '55 Chrysler Imperial.




You gotta love that color... whatever it is . Just like this '59 Buick. That's the year GM discovered that tail fins, no mater how big, didn't actually give quite enough lift to get airborne. A sad day in the design studio.





This '55 canary yellow Chevy will set you back $43,500. I think they went for a couple grand when new.

Street Rods!

What's a car show without this American art form?



This Hupmobile was right over there behind the Terraplane and the Kaiser.





Interestingly enough, this car has the Bud Light injection system.











This would be my favorite of the street rods.

Kraut wagons.

Don't know what one of these goes for, but probably not cheap.




The license plate for when 911S doesn't say enough.



A street able track car?




Don't forget the Brits. This ones not green, but it'll do.

As a child of the 80s ...

... i would let the wind blow my (very thin) hair through the open window of an 80s supercar:

1. You need a V12 (Ferrari Testarossa, single mirror)


2. A no nonsense supercar, turbocharged of course (Ferrari F40)


3. A 2nd V12 won't hurt (even if it's from the 70s, Lamborghini Countach without the ridiculous plastic bolt on parts of the 80s models)


4. A turbocharged flat 6. This is what people imagine when you say Porsche 911


5. BMW E30 M3. Because this was when touring car racing reached it's peak.

'Merican "muscle"

SS 396, rag-top, guess I'd take one if they were givin' 'em away.



Yet another Chevy of that era.



Here we have Lefty bait.



Or maybe this:




A Goat with decals? This guy says it's real. I'll try not to "judge" it.



A Merc Comet "Caliente" I think that means fast, or hot, or something.

There are many roads to "coolville".




A fabulous 4 wheeled Moto Guzzi.




Evidently not all Guzzis have V-twin engines.




Oh look, Another Cobra. zzzzzz.




You can haul bikes with one of these... the Cobra not so much.





Ferrai made 4 door sedans? Who knew?




The bumper sticker- sounds like a "Saab" story.

This show is just sloppin' over with exotic (well... for a back-water fly-over town like this) cars.



A Viper to go with those Cobras. where did that pesky shadow come from?



Ho hum, another Lambo... and another stupid shadow, who's taking these photos?



What's this? A Triumph? well that's exotic too!







Okay guys, that's it... now we can go for ice cream.





Your friend Nort.
