Car Show - El Paso, Texas

In Europe when you go to a car show you can be pretty sure that you will see beautifully preserved or restored cars from the 1920’s and 1930’s with original engines. Many will be sports touring cars designed for the winding open road.

In the western part of the United States you can pretty well be sure that although some of the cars may have originally been made in the early 1930's, most of the cars you see at a car show will have been modified by adding a big V8 and generally setting the car up to accelerate rapidly for the first 1/4
Their primary function was to impress the female of the species and hopefully lead to getting laid.

The Corvette Club of El Paso hosted a car show today out in the all new Eastern part of town. On Zaragosa road.

When I was 17 years old I had a white 1956 Chevy that was one of the hottest cars at Austin High School. Later on after I got out of the army I owned a yellow T-top Vette. I bought it from Suzie
Azar who later became mayor of El Paso.
I credit this Vette with causing marriage number two. Especially the initial conquest and seduction parts.

Among ex-Corvette owners it is common to hear, “The two finest days in a man’s life are the day he buys a Corvette, and the day he sells it!”

This is a beautiful little car show. This link will take you to all the pictures I took there:
