Today was the annual Horseless Carriage Club Brass & Nickel Car Show at the St. Louis County Museum of Transportation. Actually, "Brass & Nickel" is a bit of a misnomer. The show is open to all cars 1931 or earlier. I didn't make an exact count, but think that Model Ts were the largest group, followed by the As. There were also several Buicks, a Chevrolet, a couple of Moons, a Dorris (Moon and Dorris were cars manufactured in St. Louis) and several trucks. I had kind of expected more cars, but the turnout was at least respectable. Got to talk to a lot of people I haven't seen for a while and met one who knew me from this forum but we had never met. Temp was in the mid-70s, so it was a nice day to stand around among old cars and chat.
Nice, thank you. Always enjoyed fall season car events.
Thanks for posting those, Dick. I would have driven Betsy up from Hillsboro, but I ended up spending the day packing and preparing my daily driver for the trip to Hershey starting tomorrow morning.
Dick - your contributions on this forum are always worth reading, and its little wonder people recognise your name when it comes to old car meets. You do speak good sense! When I visit from NZ I will know your name!
I see some nickel but no brass!
Thank you, John. A nice compliment.
One of the best bosses I ever had was when I was working in Amsterdam. He was from Auckland and told me one day with a serious look on his face, "Auckland is such a dull place that the newspaper once had a banner headline that read, 'Woman almost hit by bus.'"
Bill, that's because I took the pictures before Steven Williams arrived there with his '12.
