6:30 am – Yes, I was ready to greet vendors at Dry Creek Ranch House (yawn). A few classic cars were already in place.
Vendors setting up.
Cars arriving up to register – 147 paid registrants – the most ever!
The Rio Linda High School Jr ROTC practiced for about 2 hours before the actual flag raising ceremony.
The flyover was a highlight.
I don’t know everyone in this picture, but Ray Antonelli is holding the cane, Charlea Moore and Shirley Breckenridge are to the right. They exemplify the happy people we worked with all day.
Lloydene Wilden Cook stands beside her Ford Fairlane. Lloydene and I graduated from RLHS in 1966 and went off together to UCRiverside.
Bob Perryman had two cars in the show.
Ralph Hants took Joyce Buckland and me up to 30 feet in the lift to get some great shots of the entire venue. At the end of the shoot, I homed in my favorite vehicle.
At 3 pm, the awards were given out, vendors began packing up, cars began heading home. By 4 pm, only a few remained, our day was over. Well almost. We had a little barbecue for ourselves. It was a very good day.
This has been my personal story of the Classic Car Show. If you to see more pictures, you can see the RLEHS blog post at
