Puyallup Good Guys Car Show 2011

Ventured over to the Puyallup Fair Grounds for the 24th National Pacific Northwest Good Guys Car Show on Saturday July 23, 2011. These picture are in no particular order. I am sure there were cars there that were worth far more than the ones I chose to photograph, but my tastes my own.
I have been a long time Studebaker sympathizer so with out farther explanation this 1950 Studebaker custom makes the cut.
This two tone 1956 Studebaker Champion appeared to be an unrestored original which presented nicely.

Here is a stylish shot of a custom 1960 Edsel convertible, very long, wide and low.

Although not original to this car here is a nice example of the first generation Studebaker V8, a 232 c.i. overhead valve engine which produces 120hp. It is installed in a 1955 Studebaker wagon.

Now this little green 1960 Lark was my favorite. It has only 4000 miles and has had only one new set of tires (just this year); a new battery and carpets were added new this year. Otherwise it is original.

A 1951 Studebaker Starlite coupe custom, speaks for itself.

Here is 1961/62 T-Bird custom with a 1960 Ford Star liner roof, made for lovely lines.

Ah a Jaguar custom low ride, I have seen this around off and on for years, never before have seen it sitting still were I could look it over.

Now I know this one, it is a 1947 Studebaker Business Coupe with a 1950 front end among many other modifications. The paint is actually purple but my camera can't capture it.

A the quintessential Studebaker pickup with a gas powered bicycle in the back.

Blasphemy! A Studebaker engine in a Studebaker? Unheard of.
