Classic Cars Cruisin' in Henderson

It's been a while since I shared any classic car pictures so when we went down to the Classic Car cruise last Tuesday, I snapped pics of a few favorites.  This cool coupe was parked in front of the Henderson Post Office..........

In addition to classic cars, there are also lots of motorcycles that line up along the street.....

That's my husband in the red t-shirt. Have no clue what he was talking to the guy about.
Many of Henderson's buildings are on the National Historic Register so it's a cool town any day of the week but on Tuesday's, it's really cool!
We stopped to eat at the Henderson Roadhaus. I had an awesome chicken quesidilla and my husband ordered his standard .......... BLT. :-)
One of my favorite shops on Main Street is this one........Antiques and Uniques!
And then there's Classical Glass............
I once had a '58 Chevy similar to this one. Mine was blue with a white top. Gosh, I wish I still had that one.
 All makes and models line the streets...........
and I mean all makes and models! My husband is checking out the unique features on these two "Rat Rods". They were quite the cars!  Check out the spider web grill on this one.....
Each week there is a featured car that is parked in front of The Knitting Knest. So, do any of you remember those big old cars with their tail fins?
This is the feature that my husband was looking at.........
The spider web grill fascinated me...........
 and it appears that the cars run on whiskey. LOL!
Check out those turn signals...........
and that is some engine!
I kinda liked this little red number. I could see me driving down the road with a stack of quilts on the back. In fact.........
the only thing missing in these photos...............there are no quilts!  Coming soon......I'll share the project I've been working on.
Back soon...........

My husband is so jealous that you'all are there to see those cars in person!!!! He loves old cars and is in the process of restoring a '57 Chevy!!!! So your no-quilt photos were very much enjoyed!!!!!

I have a secret love of old cars, especially 'hot rods' and cars of the 50's. Since I can not own them, I collect matchbox versions of them. My collection got out of hand so I gifted a lot of them to my BFF's nephews.
I kept my favorites.
Lucky you seeing all those great classics in person. That rat car with the spiderweb grille is just too much (in a good way).
Thanks for sharing your wonderful town.

Thanks for sending those photos. I always like to look at the classic cars.

I so enjoy your posts about your beautiful little town. I remember that 58 Chev. My folks were partial to Chevs. When my husband and I were first married, his folks allowed us to drive their Ford Fairlane for 6 mo while we saved up for our own car --which ended up being an economical VW.
Yes, I liked that red pickup, too. It would work great for tooling around town, with or without the stack of quilts.
