Well, I finally got the opportunity to take my 1971 Chevy Camaro to my first ever car show this past weekend. I had been to a couple local classic car shows in the past, but only as a viewer. This was the perfect show to serve as my first because it took place in the parking lot of the Warrenton Home Depot I worked at during summer breaks back in college. Additionally, I was able to go with my grandfather & his ’36 Ford and my brother & his ’76 Chevy C10 truck. Ironically, all three of our cars are orange!
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Everyone there was extremely nice and down to earth. It’s like everybody has some sort of special connection with just because we all have classic cars. I was able to hear stories of restoration projects gone wrong and well, and got some good advice from a guy who had just finished restoring another early 70′s Camaro a few weeks ago. Needless to say, I can’t wait for the next car show!
Have a look at some of the photos I took at the show, and feel free to leave a comment in the new facebook-integrated comments field at the bottom of the post. Thanks for visiting!
A look inside my ’71 Camaro. Just installed that new woodgrain/chrome steering wheel this past week (I know it’s not factory-correct for an early 2nd gen Camaro, but I like the way this ones feels and looks better lol).

My dad stopped by to check out some classic cars too. He had his eye on a white 60′s corvette convertible that was there… and I wouldn’t be surprised if he eventually finds a way to get one someday! (I hope so)
