The 11th annual Brass and Nickel Car Show was today at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis County. The name of the show isn't completely accurate since the criterion is any pre-1931 stock vehicle. I think the majority of cars today were Ts and the St. Louis club was well represented. I haven't been active in the club in the past few years and it was good to see familiar faces and catch up with old friends.



My car in the foreground.




A nice 1931 Cadillac.




Dave "Santa" Becherer with his car. It's hard to see the little girl behind the wheel but I'm pretty sure she was convinced that she was actually sitting in Santa's car.




A 1920 Dorris truck. The Dorris was one of the cars made in St. Louis and this one was brought by a grandson of the founder of the company.



Another St. Louis-made car - a Moon.

Thanks for posting. I keep saying one of these days I'll make it down there from Champaign. How many cars turned out?

Not as many as I had expected, Troy. Probably 30+. As I said, the Ts were probably the majority. It was a nice, relaxed show and they had a food truck so we ate pretty well.

George, it was a Horseless Carriage Club event so you wouldn't have had any way to know about it.

I have a car that would probably fit well in that group but that is quite a haul for me. I went down to Brighton 3 years ago and had to get a hotel. With only 30+ I would be reluctant to go.

Looks like you had great weather! Wish I could have gone, but I'm still driving back home from Hershey. :-)

Mark, I kinda sorta thought I might see you there.... Hershey was probably more important and more satisfying, though. :-)
