Since I had never been to Fleetwood Country Cruize In before I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I figured it would be pretty good at least being affiliated with The Speed Channel and Meguairs’ Car Crazy, but I really had no idea just how big of a classic car event this was until we were on our way to Dorchester the night before and we passed classic after classic on the highway.
This was easily the biggest car show I have been to in Ontario with vehicles sprawled all over the ginormous Plunkett estate. It was a sight to behold and worth the trip if you were ever debating it.
Because the show was huge and a lot to take in I decided not to go too crazy with the photos just and enjoy the beautiful day (violent morning hail storms aside) and amazing cars. Most of today’s photos are just of cars that interested me in general, some of which don’t really have a lot of crazy modifications when it comes to suspension and wheels but were interesting none the less.
Even though I tried to ‘take it easy’ on the photos I still ended up with around 90 in total necessitating multiple posts for this one event, whoops.
I try to keep the photos around here pretty straight on because I consider myself someone who takes pictures and not a photographer but occasionally I like to try a few different style of shot and a couple of my favorites are below.
While we were walking around the show Lyndsey suddenly exclaimed ‘a car just drove into the water!’ to which I replied ‘ya it’s an amphibious car’ before realizing that this was actually the first time I had ever seen an amphibious car in the water, in person.
Pretty cool little mechanical marvels and looking back on the day I kind of wish we waited out the line for a ride in one.
and speaking of watercraft there was this fast boat sitting not too far from the amphibious cars, If I recall it goes about 130mph and makes 1200hp on pump gas
Almost to the lowered cars but these cars also really interested me. That automotive A.D.D. one day I will get it under control I swear…
Under hood shots
I don’t take enough pictures of motors I have realized, I am going to make an effort to change that.
In the weeds
About time I get to some cars with low ride heights eh?
Rat rods, Fargos, Pintos, Studabakers, and more in the next installment from Fleetwood.
