In the early 70s, Jack moved to Texas from Wisconsin and tucked his small collection of three Cadillacs, an REO, a Milburn, and a Kozy Trailer away in the barn out back. Like many other car guys, he had the intention of someday pulling them out again and restoring them to their glory but also like many of us never found the time or money.

Today, the cars and trailer have been re-discovered (although were not completely forgotten) and are being listed by local Motostalgia Auctions. Owner Jack is still alive and will attend the auction of his five cars on June 12, 2015 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

4th Annual Motorama

At first glance from atop the small hill overlooking downtown North Adams, it seemed like your typical car show: Main Street was jam packed with cars and people; music from past generations blared from the top of a food truck serving steaming hot dogs and kielbasa dripping with delicious barbecue sauce, even at 9 a.m. But the annual Motorama isn’t your average small-city car show. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the sun shone down and the humidity stayed low as the biggest turnout yet of exhibitors gathered in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

I made my way down the hill through last year’s winners, accompanied by my classic car aficionado, also known as Dad. Some of my earliest memories are from classic car shows, peering under hoods as he held me in his arms. These days he’s my go-to when I have car questions- What year was the split window Corvette made? What are all the models of ’53 Chevy wagons? How does orange peel happen? I only wish I could absorb every fact he tells me. Continue reading “4th Annual Motorama”
