GRAFFITI WEEKEND SHOW-N-SHINE

This was the annual Graffiti Weekend.  There were events for everyone – from cruising down main street, to a visit to the nursing home, to the pancake breakfast, cruise night along the boulevard to show-n-shine at the river as well as a car auction.  We chose to start out downtown seeing the cars, went to a late breakfast at one of our favorite haunts the Jersey Lily Tavern (best I can tell Jersey Lily  was named for Lillie Langtry aka Jersey Lily whose story was told in The Life and times of Judge Roy Bean) and then to the river to see the hundreds of cars and finished with the antique sale at the Grange.

The weather was overcast which was great for a nice cool morning, but as the sun tried to come out it became quite muggy and made for not so great pictures. There really were some beautiful cars, but there were some real projects there also.  I especially like the one that reminded me of the movie Christine.  Overall I prefer a vintage original restoration – right down to the radio.  The country station that was sponsoring the show even arranged to broadcast on AM radio for those vehicles that were AM radio only. I think my favorite today was the avocado 1968 Pontiac GTO – such a great year.
