Another Car Show Photoblog

Last Saturday I rode the motorcycle over to the Gregory School for the annual Tucson Classics Car Show. I go every year, making sure to get there before the day heats up and the crowds descend.

The Gregory School is one of Tucson’s prettiest campuses, a pleasant venue for an outdoor car show. It used to be the Saint Gregory School, a private Catholic college prep. I think that’s what it still is, which makes me wonder why the school dropped the “Saint” from its name. Maybe some day I’ll find out.

Most car shows these days feature muscle cars from the 60s and 70s. The St Gregory show (which is what I can’t help still calling it) has plenty of those, but it also attracts classics from the 1910s through the 1950s, the cars I’m most drawn to.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Saturday’s show (click the thumbnails to see the originals on Flickr). I uploaded a total of 115 car show photos to Flickr, and you can see them all in my St Gregory Car Show 2016 album.
