2017 Baltimore Motor Trend International Auto Show --
Chesapeake Region Display
Chesapeake Region again was invited to display antique cars at the annual Baltimore Motor Trend International Auto Show held February 9-12 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Limited available space this year allowed for the display of only five vehicles.
Auto Show set-up day, and Tom brings in his 1965 Chevrolet SS onto the show floor.
Behind Tom's Chevy, next to enter the Convention Center, is Ron's 1985 Buick Riviera.
Once in place, Tom gets out the cleaner and readies the SS for its opening day debut.
As Tom completes his task, next placed into position is Ron's Riviera.
Trailered to the Convention Center was Pat's 1934 Studebaker President.
After display set-up on Wednesday, the show opened on Thursday, with members Vicky, Robert and Gary greeting visitors throughout the day.
On our reception table were displayed magazines, event flyers, informational brochures and membership applications for joining National AACA and Chesapeake Region.
Our "Mr. Auto Show" Ron worked diligently with the Auto Show management to make sure everything we needed was provided. Thanks Ron!
Tom displayed his 1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport.
There's no bad angle when photographing this beauty.
The rather inconspicuous "409" emblem displayed on the front fender was subtle warning to any would-be stop-light dragster intent on challenging the driver of this car.
The 1934 Packard Model 1101 8-cylinder Convertible Coupe was a real crowd-pleaser.
The Packard is owned by member Charles, and displayed by member Gene, who takes meticulous care of Charles' vehicles.
Another crowd-pleaser was Pat's 1928 Studebaker President -- approaching its 90th birthday!
Pat has displayed his vehicle at the Auto Show before, and also participates in local parades.
Luxury abounded in the 1978 Lincoln Mark V Diamond Jubilee, displayed by owner Robert. Robert volunteered many hours at the Convention Center greeting visitors at our display and talking "cars" with them.
The number of Auto Show visitors, rather limited on Thursday, gradually increased as the weekend approached.
Visitors were surely impressed that "they don't make 'em like that anymore."
The 2017 version of the "pony car" Camaro was a standout in the large Chevrolet display.
Both Coupe and Convertible models were there for the savoring.
More utilitarian was the 2017 Edge, displayed in the Ford area.
And, looking ahead to model year 2018, Chevrolet was displaying its next version of the popular Equinox.
Cleaner lines define the next version, sure to be a big seller.
Situated on a revolving turntable, you were able to easily view the design and features of this upcoming attraction.
Chesapeake Region was again delighted to have the opportunity to display some of our antique cars at the 2017 Baltimore Auto Show, and hope to receive an invitation again, to participate in the 2018 Auto Show. The visitors love to see our antique cars!
