This is the best 1955 Chevy Nomad Belair that I have seen locally. I have been to a lot of shows and seen nice cars but this one is great. Not your typical Friday night car show Nomad.

The Chevrolet Nomad is best remembered for it's two door model from 1955–57.

Salem Super Cruise 2014 by Harold Brown

Harold Brown Bhaga Video

It is time again for the Salem Super Cruise in Salem, Ohio. It is the first car show that I attended this year. I have already missed a couple of shows this year due to other engagements and I didn't want to miss this cruise-in. Cars on display and driving the streets all day long. How could you go wrong at this show?

I met Chuck at the Super Cruise and he was kind enough to pose for a picture on his Harley. Chuck I hope you like the pictures!

First Car Show for 2013 by Harold Brown

First Car Show for 2013

I went to my first car show for 2013 this past Monday and I didn't take my camera. That is kind of unusual for me, but I had spent a day taking pictures on May 17th at Pegasus Farm. I was just short of 800 pictures that day and had spent a solid two days reviewing, editing and publishing them, so I was a bit burnt out on taking pictures for the car show. However, it was fun getting together with Rich and Tom for another season of car idolatry. We staked out our usual spot under the shade tree and then went for a walk to see what the show had to offer. Many of the cars and owners were in their favorite spots and we saw many of the same faces we see each year. We are always looking for that rare gem that we can checkout in more detail.

This year I have decided that I am going to concentrate on a few cars rather that capturing the entire show. It is a little more fun to do an in depth photo review of a single car, especially with cars from the 40's and 50's. There is just a lot of stuff hanging off cars from that time frame. It gives me more time to enjoy the show and talk with the guys. I also have a bunch of car pictures from last year that I haven't published yet, so I need to work on those before capturing another couple hundred pictures.

Since I like to have pictures in my posts I decided to add a picture of our earliest form of transportation that was only 1 horse power! A picture I took of a horse at Pegasus Farm on May 17th seems appropriate.

1959 Corvette by Harold Brown

1959 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster

One of my favorite pictures, it was taken in July 2011 in Brunswick, Ohio.

I am a big fan of the Chevrolet Corvette in general and the 1959 Corvette is no exception. There is something about every body style that I like, and each car was a statement for it's time. Here are a few pictures of  the 1959 Roadster. I hope you enjoy them and image you are back in 1959 seeing the new Corvette for the fist time. Remember, every Corvette body since 1953 has been made of fiberglass. Every year the salesman would tell you that this was the last year for the fiberglass body or the last year for the Vette. I drove a 1959 in the early 70's and what a shock that was. The steering wheel was gigantic compared to my 1972 and the clutch required a body builder to push in. Still, it was cool driving it around town.

Here are a few pictures I took in 2011 of two different cars. The blue car was at the car show in Brunswick, Ohio sponsored by  Brunswick Family Restaurant. The red car was at the Riverfront Mall Cruise-In in  Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I try to go to a couple of car shows a year. I normally take my camera with me, and if I don't I will regret it. The government managed to ruin cars completely starting in 1974. They have made their come back over the years but my favorites are still the classics from the 50s through the early 70s.

There is a lot going on with the front bumper of this car. It was a different time but the car had a character all its own.

In its time it was a low rider!

I love how the seats feel like they are actually a part of the car and not just in the car.

Now that is a steering wheel! The 1958 to 1960 Corvettes were similar to this design, In 1961 the rear of the car was changed and that carried forward into the Stingray years starting in 1963 and the famous split window coupe.

2010 Ferrari Car Show by Harold Brown

2010 Ferrari Car Show Gervasi Vineyard, Sunday, Sept 26, 2010 and the Ohio Chapter of the Ferrari Club of America. The day was overcast and a little on the cool side but that made for some dramatic photos.

I love to get pictures of cars up close and look at the detail that otherwise is missed by looking at the entire car from a distance. I know that my friend and I used to research older cars when he was doing a restoration. This type of information is invaluable when doing detailed restoration.

There were over 20 cars on display including a Maserati and a Lamborghini. Yes, there were plenty of red cars to look at, but there were some yellow, black and silver cars as well. Gervasi Vineyard hosts the car show each year and the 2012 show include several vintage cars as well. Look for my post of the 2012 show coming soon.
