2016 Antique Car Show: Baltimore Streetcar Museum - Fall
On Sunday, October 23rd, Chesapeake Region held its annual Fall antique car show at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum.
A good turnout of members, guests and vehicles, in typical cool, sunny Fall weather, was enjoyed by everyone.
Vehicles, some of which we rarely see at our shows, were brought out for one of our few remaining events of 2016.
Streetcar rides were free for everyone all day.
John Shenton and daughter Deb managed the event for us and registered the cars and drivers attending.

The 1957 Mercury Commuter station wagon of John H.
The 1941 Ford Pickup of John and Lois K.
Norm's 1950 Ford Sedan

Our Baltimore Streetcar Museum "show field" area this year has been somewhat limited, due to the track work underway by the meseum volunteers in fromt of the storage barn.
With 1930s and 1940s streetcars and antique cars on display below, you almost expect a big, coal-fired B&O steam engine to be pulling the trains that rumble by on the railroad bridge overhead. Of course, the nostalgic steam engine has been replaced by the cleaner-burning, lower maintenance diesel electric engines of today, and the B&O has been absorbed into the massive CSX corporation. Modern rail transport thrives however!
Tom and Judy's 1960 Chevrolet sedan.
Al's 1935 Ford Pickup.
#6119 heads down the tracks, returning to the Visitor Center loop, after carrying a group of visitors on a nostalgic ride.
Our operator halts the streetcar in the far loop to discuss the features of the vehicle and the history of Baltimore streetcar service.
Our members and guests gather for the traditional group photo.
The Museum's O'Neill was on hand to make the "Sponsor's Choice" award" selection.
Citing his admiration of '55 Chevys, John selected the 1955 Chevrolet Belair displayed by the Rubys.
The Ruby's '55 Chevy has quite a history of national show awards, car magazine articles and amazing highway "adventures" that Gary will keep you entertained with.
