(Photos) Morton Grove Classic Car Show 8/24/12

This is the penultimate 2012 Morton Grove Classic Car Show post. Two weeks from now the final show will take place at the Prairie View Shopping Center on Dempster.

Is it possible to have a more muscular version of a muscle car? Yes--with The Judge edition of the 1970 Pontiac GTO. The color is orbit orange.

This 1972 Ford Maverick had some muscle added.

You can't get less muscular than this one cylinder 1958 BMW Isetta. The car is an Italian design--but Isetta manufacturing was licensed out to other firms. This vehicle has one door--in the front--so the driver has to watch how the car is parked. Oh, earlier this year Edmunds named its 100 Worst Cars of All Time--the 1955 BMW Isetta placed third.

Parked next to the Isetta was a 1987 BMW 325is.

This 1931 Model A Ford was used in the 2009 film Public Enemies. One of the characters in the movie was Baby Face Nelson. As I've written in this space, his corpse was dumped in the town east of Morton Grove,  Skokie, then known as Niles Center, after the Battle of Barrington.

A 1969 Chevy Camaro.

There were a lot of Chevrolets today. Here is a 1968 Nova.

Now on to a 1957 Chevy 150.

A 1948 Chevrolet Thriftmaster pickup.

This Marina Blue 1966 Chevy Corvette has a three speed shift--only 437 of them were manufactured.

Two weeks ago I posted a photograph of a black 1968 Ford Mustang. Here is a white one.

No, the dog is not driving this 1961 Ford Thunderbird.

The Dodge Super Bee was a limited production muscle car. This one is a 1970 model.

The first car I owned was a 1970 Dodge Dart--a great car. I'm sure this 1960 Dart is a fine vehicle too.

Amphicars, a German make, are amphibious cars, hence the name. It's a slower version of the type of vehicle you'd find on "Speed Racer." Lyndon Baines Johnson owned one. This is a 1964 model. Note the Illinois boat ID above the Amphicar's front wheel.
