CLASSIC AUTOMOBILES AND VINTAGE MOTORCYCLES!

s53

Two of my favorite things in the world are classic automobiles and vintage motorcycles. And when you combine them both into one event… well, that’s a pretty good day. Today I made my way to The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee for the 27th Annual Antique & Classic Car Show, sponsored by the Battlefield Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America. But it get’s better… this years show was held in conjunction with the Music City Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. That’s right… a beautiful day filled with classic automobiles and vintage motorcycles…. all in the same place. I could go on about how heavenly that is, but I’ll just shut up and let you enjoy some of my photos.

AACA – A DIFFERENT KIND OF CLUB

s4

There are a lot of car clubs around Middle Tennessee. Most are brand/model specific but the Antique Automobile Club of America is different. AACA is a National organization that dates back to 1936. There are chapters all over the USA and they are open to all brands, models and years of vehicles. In fact, you don’t even have to own a vehicle to be a member of AACA. You basically just have to love cars.

Because of these guidelines… AACA car shows typically draw a very wide range of vehicles. I attended one today, just outside of Nashville, and saw a little bit of everything including classic muscle cars, vintage Jaguars, “A” Model Fords and more. Here’s a few pics.

I FOUND THE HOLY GRAIL!

1

Last week I posted some photos from the local Corvette club show. There were a lot of great cars there, but one in particular stood out to me. Look at this gorgeous 63 coupe! There is nothing I don’t like about this car. Small block, 4-speed, side pipes, spilt-window, gorgeous red… and I absolutely LOVE rally wheels on a C2. They just look “right” to me. The only odd thing about this car is that it has Fuel Injected badges… but isn’t. Numbers matching would be icing on the cake too… but honestly, who cares when the car looks like this. Absolutely stunning. This is my holy grail!

2014 TOUCH OF GOLD SHOW

SW1

I spent a good portion of the day at the Touch of Gold car show in Franklin, TN. today. The show is put on by the Nashville Corvette Club… so it is Corvette heavy… but there were other cars there as well. Here’s a few of my fav’s for you. I took a ton more photos that I will be sharing soon. The car at the top was my pick for the day. A beautiful 63 that has undergone a complete frame-off restoration. I will be dedicating an entire post to this car soon.
