The Columbus International Auto Show pays homage to automotive history with special displays and features. This year several companies brought out classic cars and there were also vehicles from private collections.
Jack Maxton Chevrolet displayed classic Chevrolets from the muscle car era. My favorite muscle car is the 1970 Chevelle and this one checked all the right boxes including SS trim level. They also brought a 1969 Camaro Z28/RS.
Creative Interiors brought the ultimate road trip vehicle to display the type of custom work they do.
Impact60.org is building a 1969 Ford Mustang to raffle off as a fund raiser. The organization partnered with Performance Columbus to build the custom ride.
Rabid Customs brought a custom Fox Body Mustang they built for a father/son team. The car has sentimental value for the family and it far exceeded expectations.
Rabid also brought a 1951 Ford F-100 that has been fully customized. No detail was missed including air ride suspension and 427 cubic inch motor.
The State Highway Patrol even got in on the act bringing a restored cruiser and motorcycles for their display.
I spotted a right hand drive Nissan Cedric tucked away in the back of the show. When it was new, it was a top luxury sedan and direct competitor for the what we identify as Lexus models in the U.S.
The Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show & Cruise In brought a collection of fine automobiles. Some of the vehicles included a 1932 Auburn and a 1940 Cadillac. There were also several Fiat and AMC cars represented.
