Today was the 22nd annual May Madness Classic Car Show in downtown San Rafael. I enjoy seeing the classic muscle cars of my youth from time to time, but it’s not something I care so much about that I had paid any attention to the date of the event. I was, however, in the downtown area today to get together with a few friends in the morning. So it was a bonus to have reason to be there and find that the event was happening.
I spent about an hour and a half walking around, looking at the cars, and took a few photos, though by no means are photos of all the classic cars that were at the show represented here. My favorite cars at shows like this are the bad-ass mustang convertibles from the early sixties, though really fine Camaros from the same era come in a very close second.
I also highly respect anyone who can take what would otherwise be considered nearly scrap metal and turn it into a finely polished smooth as silk restoration project car. And of course, what would a classic car show be without a few hot rods?
