Danielle and I could have walked around this show for hours, and not just because it stretched for 30 blocks solid down Greenwood Ave on a beautiful summer day. So many of the cars were impeccably clean, beautifully restored, and just plain beautiful – full of curves, wings, fins, vents, portholes and chrome in a way that cars never are anymore. I wanted to take pictures of absolutely everything, but confined myself to painfully few shots per car in an effort to at least walk the length of the show before it ended and even then did not succeed, as the southern end of Greenwood was packing up to leave by the time we neared. I’m definitely headed to this show again next year as it is probably the best and most cleverly-located hotrod show in Seattle. I might even enter it myself, as there is a category for modern imports and it was far from inspiring.
The “88” emblem from a 1955 Oldsmobile 88. The Space Age really must have enthralled America in the 50’s as it affected everything from toys, tv and appliances to the not-so-subtle logo on the back of this Olds. From a XXX-Rootbeer show in June 2009.
