A Village Car Show

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.

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.

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.
