17th Annual Collector's Classic Car Show
Sponsered by the Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts

The 17th Annual Collectors Car Show was held in Tubac, Arizona on Saturday, January 29, 2011. With an estimated 400 cars at the show only three of them were Corvairs. Ken and Heidi Farr with there with Tweety, the ‘64 yellow convertible, Ron Bloom came driving the newly painted ‘62 Greenbrier, and Van Pershing was in attendance with his Stinger replica. I was amazing how many people were attracted to the Corvairs. There were always groups of people gathered around the cars with the older ones usually reminiscing about the Corvairs in their past and the younger ones wondering what were these strange Chevrolets. No prizes were won in their respective classes by any of the three, but is was a beautiful day to be at a car show.

This show attracts a wide assortment of very nicely restored automobiles. The was a nice selection of cars from all walks of life including Porsches, Mustangs, Corvettes, British cars, and great cars from the ‘40s and ‘50s.

John and Amy Young showed up to offer support. Ed Segerstrom dropped by for a visit and Chris Cunningham was there holding down the fort with the Franklin that was on display.
