As I mentioned a previous post, I was fortunate enough to attend the Cruzin’ to Colby car show & cruise on Monday. Located on Colby Avenue in downtown Everett, WA, this event proved to be more than I could have imagined. Take the jump to see what I mean.
You can see that the event stretched for several blocks, and more behind me as I took this picture. As I mentioned before, registration for the event was limited to the first 400 vehicles. I can vouch for that number; I was almost overwhelmed with both the number of cars and the crowd. It was a big success, I think, for both the city and Seattle Rod-Tiques.
I believe this is a 1982 AMC Eagle SX/4. I saw these a lot as a kid, and would love to own a 5-speed version someday.
1969 AMC AMX, anyone?
A little something for the chief blooger.
One of my favorite cars at the show was this 1918 Ford Model T. It has been updated in a few significant ways – can you spot them?
I like this little brown Hudson. Don’t see many of these on the road. The subtle air scoop is a nice touch.
You know I always love an old pickup, and this is no exception. This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 looks great in green.
Another uncommon car – a 1951 Kaiser Deluxe. Classy.
Help me out here, guys – 1977 Ford Maverick coupe?
Giant 1959 Chevrolet Impala is giant.
I don’t particularly care for the wheels and tires on this 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, but they aren’t bad at all.
You guys will instantly recognize this 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Is it an original? The build sheet seems to indicate that, although you can never be sure.
A 1949 Ford F-1 always looks great, even slightly modified with wide wheels and tires. That 1968 model behind it isn’t too bad, either.
This 1978 Lincoln Continental is just awesome. The epitome of late 70’s excessive luxury.
Most appropriately named towing company . . . ever?
This is just a sampling of the hundreds of cars that were on display in downtown Everett. I don’t often go to Everett on purpose, but this past weekend, I’m really glad I did. I hope you enjoy some of these cars. Let me hear from you in the comments.
