It was a beautiful morning and the village I was in was celebrating the summer day with road races (for runners) and a parade with antique cars as part of the menagerie.
They gathered at the village museum arriving in ones and twos.
The first to arrive was a bit of a rat rod based on a Ford Model A.
It was very creative an sported the badges of many of the popular sources of aftermarket performance parts of the early hot rod era.
Another Model A soon showed up.
These painted wheels became part of the Model A color scheme after owners started painting their wheels on their own. Like many options on todays cars they originated from the creativity of car owners that wanted a bit of individuality in their rides.
Rumble seats and pin striping accented these roadsters.
Two more pulled up. These two owners were part of the Model A Ford Club of Cape Cod.
The wheels were all painted an accent color.
But there weren’t just Model A’s…
Car people gathered and had a fine time chatting about cars.
Later, at one in the afternoon, when many more had gathered, the parade was kicked off and the residents of the village enjoyed a glimpse back into the history of the motor car.
