Default Baytown Fine Rides 30th Annual Car Show

A cold front blew through last night and into this morning with lingering scattered showers. I almost didn't go, but finally decided to go see if the show was going on. After all, it is only about 12 miles from my house.

Sure enough, the show was in progress. Saw some nice looking cars. The folks were busy wiping off the rain drops. The showers subsided for an hour or so then started up again. I had just enough time to take a few pictures, talk to a few folks and the scoot back to my truck.

Several vehicles had the late model GM LS series engines in them. Those make lots of horsepower vs the old style small block Chevy motors from the days gone by.

@RainMan 2.0 - The Trans AM had a LS engine out of a GTO - 2001 - 2002 year model. It has some serious horsepower. Same for the 61 Pontiac. As you can see, it also has a LS engine out of a GTO.

The Dodge Charger (Dukes of Hazard replica) had a 440 6 pack...and a serious rumble from the cam. Nice to hear it run.

If I had waited an hour or two, I could have taken a lot more pictures as the skies cleared for the rest of the day as the front moved to the east of Houston/Baytown area.

Fun day, indeed.
Enjoy.
Mike

Nice. I remember when you could get '55 Chevy 2door posts for $300, off of used car lots, in good condition to boot. I them and Chevy stepside pickups are my favorites. Altho I wouldn't say no to a '28-'34 Ford or Chevy pickup.

Have a good story about a guy in my home town with a souped up '55 2door post, and a almost new $300 '57 Chevy convertable with a blown engine - and this was in 1957.

Thanks Mike,
I always enjoy your pics and we obviously share the passion for classics. I love the tri five Chevys and the step side pick up and... pretty much all of them. LOL

Too bad it was wet out. Nice cars though, Mike. I love the old Chevelles. A couple of school buddies had them. One of them was the fastest car in town. That '66 SS396 was something. The guy who built the engine way back then, now has a very respected Vette shop. https://www.stingrayauto.com

Donít think 67 camaros had 350 engines. The black one isnt correct if that matters. I had a 67 Camaro and it had a 327. Bought new in 1966 when they first came out


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.
