    Overall Rating: B- Overall a nice show; it was hindered a little by the construction on the first block of State Street but they compensated for it by extending cars onto a couple of the intersecting streets. A nice variety of cars and well setup.


    I went up and took a quick lap. I thought they were going to try not to have duplicates? There were 3 1941 Lincolns, 3 1965 Mustangs, 4 Covairs. Also, I thought they were going to try to get different cars from one year to the next? The only one that stood out from last year was the DeLorean.

    One guy with a Woody had his car roped off.

    The cars on the first block by the capitol were the best ones, since you never see them at shows around Southern WI.

    The guy with the Orange and Red VW westfalia (I posted it in the Craigslist ad a couple of weeks ago) was there too. He popped the top and had a For sale sign in it ( 20,000 views within 1 day, not bad).

    I would really like to see this show expand to have cars parked around the Capitol too.

    Good point. There were also 2 black 57 Thunderbirds. I was pleased to see that Studebaker Hawk there, that was a nice rarity. I’ll have the pics that Ryan and I took up soon


    No offense to this show, but I have a feeling the cars are personally picked, especially being some of these are cars we never see during the summer at any show in the area.

    I’m curious to see the pics, we heard from a friend last night that he went and wasn’t impressed…


    Here’s all the photos, thanks to Ryan too!

    Very nice photos – thanks Garibaldi. The VW bus looks like the Ronald McDonald mobile (sorry Ryan).


    Thanks for sharing those, some interesting cars!


    Glad you liked the pics. I’ll be sure and take plenty more at Automotion. I was trying out a new color setting on my camera when taking the Cars on State photos and I don’t know if its just me, but the colors in the photos seem more vibrant that usual. I think I’ll stick with the new setting!
