Classy Chassis Car Show-4 July 2011. *WARNING*-Over 120 Pix. 56k Might wanna grab a Sammich.
Hello all,
4th of July Weekend was happenin’ here in Tacoma. There was another car show right here on the Army Base. It was called “Classy Chassis”, and was part of “Freedom Fest”, a celebration on this post (of epic proportions), every year for 4th of July. This year, the show was sponsored by none other than:
(Man I gotta get a lift/wheels/tires so I have a reason to enter :D ). There were many different categories. Unfortunately I did not get to enter the “Cleanest/Best Kept Daily Driver” category with the truck like I wanted to. Oh well, there is always next year. Either way, prepare to be amazed. There are some fantastic cars/trucks here for your viewing pleasure. As usual, I will narrate for you, throughout the pictures as best I can. A few of these cars were so rare, even I don’t know what they were. I put #’s above all of the pictures so if you have any guesses as to what the unknown’s are, put them up with the corresponding pic # please. I have spent about 5 hours resizing, sorting, uploading and posting…so enjoy!

(I apologize in advance for the picture quality. Some are grainy, that is not my camera’s fault. I have a Kodak EasyShare point & shoot that takes 14.2 MP pictures. I believe the problem lies in my XP Powertoy’s Image Resizer. Not sure how resizing an image to a smaller size can impact image quality but it does. If anyone wants High-Res pix, just PM me and I can send them.)

^Nice example of a 1st Generation Mustang.

^Not quite sure what car this is, but if I had to guess I would say Buick Skylark?

^’54 Ford Victoria (possibly an early relative of the later Crown Victoria?)

^Old custom of some sort. Again, not sure on specifics. Not that it really matters anyway, when they get that customized, its to the point where its just called a “Custom”, because there is so little of the original car left. Lets face it. Most car’s in the 30’s just did not look this good. :D

^Suuuuuper Beeeeeee :cool:

^one of the original General Lee’s from the show “Dukes of Hazzard” This was car #4.

^Plymouth Dusters.

^Shinging, stunning, nearly perfect example of a 1956 Chevrolet Bel-Aire. This is the car that came to be known as the “57 Chevy”, only one year older.

^again, not sure what this one is, anyone who knows, feel free to chime in!

Still more comin. Better sit down, you could be here awhile :D

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:12 PM

^1951 Chevy Pickup.

^a “Studinac Pontibaker”. I am guessing it is a cross between a Studibaker and a Pontiac? Very…interesting. I don’t know how I should feel about it, but hey, its not my car. LOL.

^A brilliant, unrestored 67 Split-Window Chevrolet Corvette. A VERY rare car. Even more rare if you see a Split-Window Stingray of this vintage.

^1976 Honda Civic Hatch. Neat!

^Ford Falcon

^1958 Chevrolet Impala.

^Custom Ford Model A

^Ford Model A Convertible.

^1971 Chevelle SuperSport

Post 3 down, only about 70 more pix to go.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:13 PM

^If I had to guess I am going to say Packard… There was no data plate and the owner was missing in action. LOL. Any Guesses?

^same here, Packard. But I could be (and probably am) wrong :p .

^’56 Chevy “Pro Street”. My god, if you could have seen the slicks on this thing. They were 14” wide easily. I forgot to take a pic of the rear tires…but trust me when I say they were ridiculously huge Hoosier Slicks on the back end of this car. Don’t buy it? There is a Fuel Cell and a 20lb NOS bottle in the trunk. I think it means business.

^Ford F-100

^’64 Chevy Impala

^61 Chevy Impala.

Sit tight, folks. Plenty more where this came from…

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:13 PM

^1948 Chevy, original, unrestored, numbers matching with only 36,000 miles.

#41 (just to give you an idea of its beastliness…)
^I think this Camaro means business. If you see him on the street…mind yours. You don’t want none.

^’57 Chevy Nomad. Based off the Bel-Aire, they never sold well, and are consequently quite rare now, as a result.

^I am going to guess 1940’s Chevy?

^Supercharged El Camino SS…if he can hook up, you will never catch him…IF he can hook up. :p

^original, unrestored (kinda special) 1985 Buick Grand National GNX. 3.8L, Turbocharged.

^Chevelle SuperSport

Wow…still got more. Not even half done. This thread might be ridiculous.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:14 PM

^1963 Ford Thunderbird. Nice, and not as “everywhere” as corvette’s are. Much more rare to see a T-Bird.

^El Camino in Canary Yellow.

^Perhaps an old Chrysler Custom? Not sure what it started life as.

^Chevy Nova SS

^1953 Chevy Bel-Aire. One of the first.

^See what I mean about the red’s not turning out after re-sizing. Sucks. I am guessing this is a Model A Coupe from the looks of things.

^not really sure what it is, but it is SWEET lookin’.

^A pair of brilliant, unrestored, numbers matching Packard’s. Owned by the same people since they were new. They were brothers. One of them passed away and left the other his car. Now the one brother has both cars, worth about $100,000 each.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:14 PM

^an old buick.

^Plymouth RoadRunner

^arguably my favorite style of Camaro. 1991 Iroc-Z.

^A Blurry, but beautiful ‘57 Chevy.

^just nice..thats all there is to say.

^again, not sure what it is, but it is NICE.

^Silverado Predecessor.

^Ford F-100 Stepside.

^525 RWHP Ford T-Bucket. I think the license plate describes it correctly.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:14 PM

^1962 Chevrolet Corvette. Arguably my favorite Generation of corvette. It is between this one and the 1969-1982 Body Style.

^Mazda RX-8. Out of place much?

^1949 Mercury Coupe. Good, Ol’ Fashioned Lead Sled.

^Corvette Z51. Not sure of the significance of the Z51 package, but I thought the custom touches in memory of the owners father were noteworthy. God Bless Our Troops.

^International Pickup.

^1967 Mercury Cougar.

^Beautiful example of a 1962 Chevy Corvette. Drool.

^Truimph TR-8 and its owner. EXTREMELY RARE in the states.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:15 PM

^Original, Numbers Matching, Unrestored 1962 Plymouth Satellite. They just don’t make them like that anymore.

^Not sure what this is supposed to be…but it WAS a Honda Accord at one point.

^C6 LS3 Corvette. Nice custom touches. Again, sorry for the red.

^Another Ford F100. I love the F-series trucks.

^Nice custom work on a newer mustang.

ArmyofOne 07-05-2011 08:15 PM

^’60 Impala. In 1959 they only did the design for one year that makes the 59’s EXTREMELY rare. I have only ever seen one 1959 Impala.

^a beautiful Ford Falcon.

This next one is probably the most special car at the show:

^A 1919 Cadillac Limousine. Unrestored, all original/numbers matching, 54,000 miles. Who knows how much this car is worth. In pic # 94, I put a friend of mine in there for size comparison. This thing was HUGE. Even by today’s standards.
