Rockabilly Hot Rod

Rockabilly Hot Rod

There were a few vintage cars to be seen along the street near the Shake the Shack Rockabilly Ball at the Tractor. A Hot Rod car show was part of the 22nd annual event, and was held in the Lake City neighborhood last Saturday. It reminded me of some of Steffe's photos of a restaurant that Swedes with similar interests like to patronize in their classic cars. Apparently Sweden and the USA are the two countries which have the largest number of street rod enthusiasts.

I recall my high school's parking lot when I see photos like this...

Also recall Istanbul the first time I went there in '77. Never had seen so many vintage US cars on the streets--used as taxis.

I get exactly what you mean about Steffe's photo subjects but this style is all your own!

Was just talking with a friend about a mutual love of old cars. Great photo! Love the colorful lighting, too.

Ooooh...this is amazing. I love the colors. It looks like an ad from a different lifetime ago.
