The annual Tucson Classics Car Show was Saturday, held on the grounds of St. Gregory’s Academy. It’s one of two local car shows I try never to miss (the other one’s in January, on the golf course at Tubac, a resort town south of Tucson). The Gregory School (as it is now known) is an ideal venue for an outdoor car show: the campus is green and shady and there’s plenty of nearby parking. October can be iffy; you never know ahead of time if it’ll be cool or still hot. We were lucky this year with overcast skies and a few early-morning sprinkles, but not a drop fell on the cars or the spectators while I was at the show, which was most of the morning. The cars, of course, were gorgeous.
Muscle cars and Corvettes dominated, but I’m more interested in antiques, classics, and oddballs. There were plenty of each for me to obsess over, including a few interesting motorcycles.
I posted 87 car show photos to a Flickr album, and you can click here to see them all. I’ll post a few thumbnails here to whet your appetite; click on any of them to see the full sized originals at Flickr.
