Easter Weekend Car Shows Pekin, IL and St. Louis, MO
« on: August 03, 2016, 11:39:11 AM »
We attended 2 car shows this weekend, one in Pekin, IL and the other in St. Louis, MO.  The first 5 pictures are from the annual invitational show on Saturday at the Avanti Dome in Pekin, sponsored by the Early Ford V-8 Club of America.  The club looks for vehicles all year to invite to this indoor car show.  The members pick approximately 100 vehicles each year from Model T's to Mustangs but we're just showing the 32's here.  This is a well attended show that also includes a swap meet.













On Sunday, we went to the annual car shows at the Muny in Forest Park, St. Louis, MO.  This outdoor event actually features 2 different car shows, one on each of the 2 levels of the Muny parking lots.  The lower level has street rods, street machines and customs while the upper level features antique vehicles, sports cars and stock muscle cars.  This is a huge, well attended event featuring hundreds of cars and thousands of people.  It was a beautiful day in the park!  Pictured are the 32 Fords we saw in the street rod area.
