A Fine Car Club Car Show
Alaska has a surprisingly robust number of vintage cars within our borders. The old car hobby is definitely alive and well in Fairbanks, with the Vernon L Nash Antique Car Club taking the lead in promoting the preservation and enjoyment of "ancient vehicles" through car shows, runarounds, rallies, tours, joint meets and social events. This past weekend the club held their annual car show at the Carlson Center.
Willy drove our 1914 Moline-Knight and 1927 Stutz Black Hawk the few miles to the show on Friday, hurrying to beat an impending thunderstorm. It was a crime that the passenger seat of the Stutz was empty on the drive over, but Scott (one of our museum clerks), was happy to catch a ride in the Moline-Knight. We saw more than a few jaws drop when folks saw our Stutz, and we had a great time telling folks about our museum and upcoming Midnight Sun Cruise-In set for June 18-20. http://fountainheadauto.blogspot.com/2010/04/cruise-in-to-summer.html
We've posted photos of more of the cars on our Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=178049&id=194024748369&ref=mf
I hope you'll visit the page and identify some of the cars for me. For more information about the Vernon L Nash Antique Car Club, follow this link: http://local.aaca.org/fairbanks
