First up is a 1975 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible.
Is it possible to have a classic car show without a Ford Mustang? No. Here's a blue 1966 one.
And you've got to have a Chevy Corvette at a classic car event, preferably a red model. This 1988 muscle car belongs to a former client of mine.
Classic car etiquette: Never--ever--touch a car on display unless you are invited to do so. But that almost never happens. But the Kane County resident who owns this 1963 Chevrolet Nova Coupe suggested that I sit down in the driver's seat. After I checked to ensure there was nothing sharp on my person--I did. The car has a Tom Tom, which of course was not standard.
In front of the Morton Grove police car--a 2012 Dodge Charger--is a 1967 Chevy Camaro SS with a patriotic owner. This vehicle is black--the sunset light was playing tricks on the car's color.
It's easy to mistake this luxury vehicle for a Cadillac. I did. But it's a 1968 Plymouth VIP. It was the luxury version of the Fury model.
Another patriotic participant was the owner of 1957 Chevy 210.
The heavenly blue convertible is a 1963 Pontiac Catalina.
The Polynesian artwork makes this 1965 Chevy Sportvan the ultimate mid-'60s van.
The 1973 Dodge Dart Sport coupe was really a re-badged Dodge Demon--Christian groups complained about the un-Christian name and its devil and pitchfork logo.
From coupe to coupe. Here's another black one, a 1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass.
As you have noticed, Morton Grove was invaded by Oldsmobiles tonight. Are you ready for one more? We started with an 88 convertible--and we'll end with one. Here's a 1964 Olds Dynamic 88.
