Car Show

Buzz Estes

Last weekend, Athens hosted an amazing time downtown on the square!  It was the annual car show with hundreds of cars and thousands of people filling the streets!  I've never seen so many shiny,  colorful, restored cars in my life!  The weather couldn't have been nicer, and it seemed that everyone had a great time.  My favorite part was overhearing older folks talk about the memories that these cars brought to mind.  They LOVE talking about those times.

As I walked around, my favorite became the 57 Chevrolet Bel Air.  This red one was hot!

And then, Mr. Carlos, who owned a beautiful pinky/coral colored one, wanted to take MY picture with his car.  Notice how I was scared to actually touch it.  I didn't want him to have to shine it back up.  If you missed the car show--you missed a beautiful time!  Catch it again next year!  Or catch a Cruise In each month...
