We're spending the day in Collinsville doing a bit of yard work and noticed an antique car show going on over at the VFW. It's just such a gorgeous day that Ferdie and I decided to take a walk and see what kind of vehicles were on display.
It was our lucky day, the first people we ran into were the Poneleits, Terry, Kathy, Chris and Jack. They were on site with their 1965 Dodge which is in perfect condition. The one thing which was different from the original was the addition of a back seat shoulder harness set up for Jack's car seat.
Moving across the parking lot we saw other colorful cars and trucks. I'm into trucks these days.
I think this is a 66 Chevy, Mr. Birch was very informative about its history. Built in St. Louis and spent 13 years on a farm in New Athens. Then he bought it, let his son use it/have it until he got married. Then Mr. Birch got it back and restored it. This is the exact color it was originally. The license plate says Wyoming 66, but that is just for fun.
Everyone was very friendly and enjoyed talking about their cars/trucks. I learned a lot.
One more. This one's body type I did not understand and no one was around to explain.
Ferdie enjoyed his walk and I did too, imagine the photos accompanied by Texas country music and you have the whole story.
