A Feast of Cars

Every year Rockville holds a great free show of antique and vintage cars. A couple of us went to this year’s show last Saturday, and got to see 550 cars spread out over a large field.
One of the first things you notice is how great car colors used to be:

The classic shapes also look good in black and white:

There are a few extremely old cars, like this 1912 E-M-F (which last year drove 10,000 miles back and forth across the U.S.):

There are 32 different car clubs at the event, so you can see many types of vintage cars:

Lots of enthusiastic spectators come to the show, and the car owners are happy to explain everything about their cars:

There are also a couple of large utility vehicles, including a Rockville 1963 Mack firetruck with these wonderful dials:

And if you can’t afford a vintage car, there is a flea market there selling vintage toy cars, old license plates, classic car magazines, and other memoriabilia:
