This Memorial Day weekend marked the 52nd Car Show in Norwich, NY. The Rolling Antiquer’s Old Car Club host this great event each year marking the start of the car show season in upstate NY.
Cars and Fea Market goers fill the huge Chenango County Fairgrounds for two days on the holiday weekend. Saturday the fairgrounds are host to muscle cars and street rods, and Sunday Amtique car lovers roam the grounds looking at vintage automobiles from back in the day. Both days also have the vast flea market for all things automotive. Along with a nice Car Corral for the person looking for a project.
Last year my wife and I made the 60 min drive on Sunday for some Antique cars and good food. This year I thought I would change it up and check out the show on Saturday. On my drive over it was rainy, I was like what am I doing? The closer I got to Norwich the brighter the sky’s were getting. I parked across the street supporting the local Lions Club. These volunteer workers do a fantastic job getting everybody parked and into the show with ease.
When I walked through the gates the grounds looked well stocked with cars and show goers. It was good to see that the weather didn’t stop people from coming out to this historic show.
It felt good to walk around and look at beautiful machines from days gone by, as well as the modern day muscle cars that were well represented in Norwich. My visit was not only for my enjoyment, but I was was also doing coverage for Apex Auto Magazine. While I was walking around the show snapping pictures I ran into a few people I know. Rick Jackson from our car club, was handing out Show flyers for 7 Valley Streetrods 25th annual show in August. I also ran into one of the creators of Apex Auto Magazine Justin Palmer.
As always the quality of cars and trucks at this show was good. Like I said in a earlier post I get to see different stuff at this show. Which makes a car guy smile.
Like the Kaiser that raced at Fonda Speedway, and the Classic car hauler that it sets on. Not only was the car and truck cool, but all of the pictures and liteture from the time that this car was making laps on the dirt.
As I walked around the sky’s were getting darker and rain was in the area. I picked up my pace of walking so I could capture the entire show for you guys that didn’t make it to Norwich.
Food vendors had lines at there booths all day long. This is just a good ole show for car lovers of all kinds. People working the show are nice and helpful. Oldies music is playing all over the grounds giving us the full car show feel.
Mark this on your calanders for next Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday streetrods and Muscle Cars. Sunday Antique Cars are on display for you enjoyment. $5 donation for parking, and $5 to get into the show. Well worth it for any car enthusiast. Here are a few mor shits from the show.
