Classy Chassis Car Show-4 July 2011.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

4th of July Weekend was happenin’ here in Tacoma. There was another car show right here on the Army Base. It was called “Classy Chassis”, and was part of “Freedom Fest”, a celebration on this post (of epic proportions), every year for 4th of July. This year, the show was sponsored by none other than:

(Man I gotta get a lift/wheels/tires so I have a reason to enter :D ). There were many different categories. Unfortunately I did not get to enter the “Cleanest/Best Kept Daily Driver” category with the truck like I wanted to. Oh well, there is always next year. Either way, prepare to be amazed. There are some fantastic cars/trucks here for your viewing pleasure. As usual, I will narrate for you, throughout the pictures as best I can. A few of these cars were so rare, even I don’t know what they were. I put #’s above all of the pictures so if you have any guesses as to what the unknown’s are, put them up with the corresponding pic # please. I have spent about 5 hours resizing, sorting, uploading and posting…so enjoy!

(I apologize in advance for the picture quality. Some are grainy, that is not my camera’s fault. I have a Kodak EasyShare point & shoot that takes 14.2 MP pictures. I believe the problem lies in my XP Powertoy’s Image Resizer. Not sure how resizing an image to a smaller size can impact image quality but it does. If anyone wants High-Res pix, just PM me and I can send them.)

^Not quite sure what car this is, but if I had to guess I would say Buick Skylark?

#11

100_1392_Large_.JPG

^’54 Ford Victoria (possibly an early relative of the later Crown Victoria?)

#12

#13

100_1395_Large_.JPG

^Old custom of some sort. Again, not sure on specifics. Not that it really matters anyway, when they get that customized, its to the point where its just called a “Custom”, because there is so little of the original car left. Lets face it. Most car’s in the 30’s just did not look this good. :D

#14

100_1396_Large_.JPG

^Suuuuuper Beeeeeee :cool:

#15

100_1399_Large_.JPG

^Plymouth Dusters.

#18

^Shinging, stunning, nearly perfect example of a 1956 Chevrolet Bel-Aire. This is the car that came to be known as the “57 Chevy”, only one year older.

#19

100_1401_Large_.JPG

^again, not sure what this one is, anyone who knows, feel free to chime in!

Still more comin. Better sit down, you could be here awhile :D

#21

^a “Studinac Pontibaker”. I am guessing it is a cross between a Studibaker and a Pontiac? Very…interesting. I don’t know how I should feel about it, but hey, its not my car. LOL.

#22

100_1406_Large_.JPG

^A brilliant, unrestored 67 Split-Window Chevrolet Corvette. A VERY rare car. Even more rare if you see a Split-Window Stingray of this vintage.

^If I had to guess I am going to say Packard… There was no data plate and the owner was missing in action. LOL. Any Guesses?

#31

100_1413_Large_.JPG

^same here, Packard. But I could be (and probably am) wrong :P .

^’56 Chevy “Pro Street”. My god, if you could have seen the slicks on this thing. They were 14” wide easily. I forgot to take a pic of the rear tires…but trust me when I say they were ridiculously huge Hoosier Slicks on the back end of this car. Don’t buy it? There is a Fuel Cell and a 20lb NOS bottle in the trunk. I think it means business.

#44

100_1424_Large_.JPG

#45

100_1428_Large_.JPG

^’57 Chevy Nomad. Based off the Bel-Aire, they never sold well, and are consequently quite rare now, as a result.

#46

100_1430_Large_.JPG

^I am going to guess 1940’s Chevy?

#47

100_1429_Large_.JPG

#57

100_1441_Large_.JPG

^See what I mean about the red’s not turning out after re-sizing. Sucks. I am guessing this is a Model A Coupe from the looks of things.

#58

100_1440_Large_.JPG

^not really sure what it is, but it is SWEET lookin’.

#59

100_1443_Large_.JPG

^A pair of brilliant, unrestored, numbers matching Packard’s. Owned by the same people since they were new. They were brothers. One of them passed away and left the other his car. Now the one brother has both cars, worth about $100,000 each.

^I think the sign says it all. That car is worth a fortune.

Well, you made it to the end of the pix…There was a lot more to Freedom Fest than just the car show, its basically a county fair right here on post. They have rides/games for the kids (and youthful adults ;) ), funnel cakes, cotton candy, elephant ears, small business kiosks, and pretty much everything one would expect from a fair. All in all we had fun, but the purpose of this thread was to document the car show. I hope you enjoyed the pix!
