One of our neighbors from Michigan had recommended the Good Guys Car Show in Scottsdale, but even if he hadn’t, it was on Nicolas’ radar.
We got an early start on Saturday, arriving at West World by 10am. We were amazed by the number of cars there were to look at.
We skipped the vendor building when we arrived, figuring we could go in there later when we needed a break form the sun, and headed straight outside.
All of the cars at this show were from 1972 or before, and some went way back . . .
This ‘32 Ford was really pretty, with its leather hood straps and other details.
From there, we moved over to some newer Fords,
and a beautiful Corvette,
with a little spider in its paint job!
As we walked back toward the building, we saw the Munsters car arriving.
There were lots of activities going on during the day – crafts for the kids, music, and an Autocross track. We watched for a few minutes,
Some guys were even lucky enough to snag a spot in the shade! We walked and walked and walked . . .
looking at cars, looking at trucks . . .
Nicolas could have gone on looking for days!
We got a quick lunch, and then walked some more . . . there were more cars to see . . . 2500 of them according to Nicolas!
There were even a few characters . . .
and we saw the Munsters’ car again!
Bryce and I had seen enough cars for one day . . . but Nicolas could go on forever! He agreed to take a break and go inside the vendor building to get out of the sun for a few minutes, but that wasn’t much relief . . . I think it was actually hotter in there, without the breeze.
We went back outside, and after a few more rows of cars,
Bryce and I found a shady spot under a tree to sit and wait,
while Tom and Nicolas walked through the “swat meet” area around the perimeter of the show.
It was definitely the biggest car show we’ve ever been too, and the weather could not have been more perfect, and we all had fun although Bryce and I wore out sooner than Nicolas did . . . Tom hung in there so Nick would have company. I was glad that at least half of the cars were parked on the grass – it was so much easier to walk on, and noticeably cooler than when we were on pavement!
We were all exhausted by the time we got home, but hopefully our legs will recover in time for the hike I had planned for Sunday morning!!
