Photo TR: Southern Knights Car Show

Postby imawesome1124 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 12:54 pm

Every year in early spring, Charlotte Hall, MD has their annual Southern Knights Classic Car Show. Any car can enter the show as long as they are at least 25 years old. This was one of the best shows I've been to. There wasn't any car that really "wowed" me like there's been in the past, but the overall quality of this show was better than most I've been to. This TR will be divided into two parts since I took over 80 pictures. I'm done talking, on to the photos.

Not even into the show and there's already nice cars scattered everywhere.

Great contrast of old and new. Still not in the show btw.

I can't think of a good caption for this... so... it's a trike.

Finally in the show. First thing we see is an immaculate, pristine Bel-Air next to a rust bucket Beetle.

The Southern Knights Car Show always has a bike section, and this was one on the nicer ones there.

I'll admit it, I know nothing about bikes. But I know that this is a classic by looking at it (and reading the sign that says it was built in 1941).

If someone strapped a stuffed pig to a Chopper would it be called a "pork chop"? Ha, I crack myself up... you're not laughing. Oh, never mind.

This bike had hands-down the nicest paint-job, and not just because of the sexy naked lady.

There really isn't a car more iconic than the '55 Bel-Air.

But you could always make the argument that it's the '57 Bel-Air.

Judging by the bucket seats, the roll cage, and the fat rear tires(not pictured), this car was made for the dragstrip.

The reason I like the '55 Bel-Air more than the '57 is because they all have two-tone paint jobs whereas most '57s only have a single color.
