Shine in the Pines - Part 2

When the show ended, I positioned myself under a tree where most of the cars were passing by to get to the road. My top 5:

1956 Studebaker Sky Hawk:

And for the third show I went to that day in Franklinville, NJ, out in the boondocks, behind a pizza place, they held several shows there in the summer.

My five picks are:

I like the color of this 1966 El Camino:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48050436082_3d4b42fa06_z.jpg IMG_3078

A blue Pontiac Phoenix, not your typical X-body sighting:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48050385578_8be7b66938_z.jpg IMG_3116

This blue 1969 Dart GT convertible that was also at the first show that day:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48050419402_066757146e_z.jpg IMG_3164

Another Mopar, a 1965 Dodge Polara 500 hardtop:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48050379148_c3bcf33220_z.jpg IMG_3158

And it's rival from Dearborn, a 1965 Galaxie 500 hardtop:

The next few posts were from the same day, Radwood NJ and 24 Hours of Lemons NJ. They combined both into one event, the car show going on while the race was on the track. Both are great events to attend if you have the opportunity.

Radwood NJ - Part 1, my 5 picks:

Several picks are cars that were not sold in the US, including this Fiat Ritmo 130TC:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48074776821_accf63506c_z.jpg IMG_3634

Toyota Soarer GT Twin-Turbo L:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48074866773_9b0f5f4608_z.jpg IMG_3693

Nissan Cefiro A31:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48074825311_f8739d3432_z.jpg IMG_3699

Subaru was well-represented again (Subaru US HQ is nearby in Cherry Hill NJ), my pick was this well-preserved early BRAT:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48074919107_b121cf7361_z.jpg IMG_3749

There was also a Loyale hatch, a couple Justys and a Forester done up in woody-style.

And there were several Toyota Starlets there, I don't think I've seen one in years:

The 480 was planned to be sold in the US (which is why they had sidemarkers and federal bumpers) but due to the value of the dollar in 1987, this never came to fruition.

Along with Radwood was the 24 Hours of Lemons. Most of what is raced are small cars/sport sedans from the 90s-00s. Here are some of the unusual things seen on the racetrack (Some I am saving for the infield pics):


So someone took two Pacers and made a fishbowl, then placed that body on top of a Toyota MR2, resulting in the most unusual thing seen:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48122428157_26180c736e_z.jpg IMG_4091c

A Volvo Bertone coupe:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48122331211_0b9aa341af_z.jpg IMG_4093b

Someone wanted to race their inner Blues Brother with a 1974 Dodge Monaco:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48122431797_ef1fabfc9f_z.jpg IMG_4062

How about a Buick/Opel by Isuzu coupe:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48122366898_a3e570c645_z.jpg IMG_4110

AMC Javelin:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48122331596_b77d642a03_z.jpg IMG_4092

A Merkur XR4Ti:

And an Audi Coupe GT:

ingo - That's a shame. Hopefully they can re-schedule when things quiet down.

eLMer - I don't think anyone on this side of the pond has ever heard of that film, so I doubt that was inspiration. The Pacer always had the nickname of the "fishbowl", so I think they wanted to create one. But that film does look interesting.


Now for the infield race cars. One of the cool things about this double-show was that everyone was allowed to cross the bridge and wander around the infield, so you could see the cars up close and watch the teams frantically trying to get the cars running. So my 5 picks are:


A Sunbeam Rapier Convertible. Apparently the floors were completely rotted so the team put the body on top of a Pinto chassis, so it was a Pinto wearing the Sunbeam body. Either way a truly unusual sight:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48127350756_3a4315e2c4_z.jpg IMG_4202

One team ran a Peugeot 405 MI-16, which was Peugeot's last model sent to the States, another rare sight:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48127358266_1237957aea_z.jpg IMG_4201

I found a Datsun 510 sedan hiding away, it didn't run in the race, I think a backup car:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48127401013_4a6f8ae511_z.jpg IMG_4155

A team raced a Toyota Cressida from the 1980s:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48127453702_8b56992862_z.jpg IMG_4174

Another unusual car that wasn't running was this Nissan Axxess. The team desperately tried to get it running but it wouldn't work:
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48127401568_bb91d4d05f_z.jpg IMG_4152


Overall, it was really interesting to get up close and see the teams in action.

so.. should we call the convertible Sunbord Pintier ? :whistle:

kind of sad to see a rare 405 ending this way ( same for the SVT Contour in your album )

I still have two questions ?

1 : did the Cayman really made the race ?
2 : why do the 300ZX wear the SAAB name ? :eek:

1. No the Cayman was not one of the racers, just someone's personal car parked in the infield.

2. I believe the Z was running a Saab Turbo engine

Somebody near me converted a 21st Century Dodge Challenger into a Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird. Here's a side view.

And this is the front end. The doors of the hideaway headlights move to the bottom, and the headlights themselves are strictly modern halo ones.
