Verna and I spent part of the afternoon in attendance of the Wickenburg 65th Annual Gold Rush Days Classic Car Show. There were dozens of classics parked on Frontier Street. In fact, there were more classics than last year. The current venue was packed. We think that they should extend the show to one more block, but I guess that’s up to the powers that be.
Most of the photo credits go to Verna with a few of mine mixed in. Click on the slideshow images to advance.
I spotted this classic “bob tail” Chevy tractor truck parked near the post office in town today. I did a little research on Google images and I think that this is a 1950 model, although I’m not certain. It is vintage, however and in really nice condition.
I believe that Chevrolet is no longer in the big rig business although GMC may still produce tractor trucks.
Verna took several pictures of this extremely well restored Model A today. We were going to the local discount store for a few supplies and saw this car parked in the lot out front. Somebody certainly applied some tender loving care to this beautiful classic. We do not recall seeing this particular classic at the car show the other day, but we may have missed it since we were a late arrival and some of the classics had already left.
I got out my little camera and snapped an image pair to be merged into this 3D image. Of course, you will need your free pair of 3D glasses to view the anaglyph image. In case you do not have 3D glasses, you can view the 2D version here.

I took an image of the railroad track the other day. We crossed the BNSF track at Yavapai, just north of the old train station. There is a siding (seldom used) and a switch for directing the train cars onto the siding. When rendered in sepia, the shot looks like it could have been taken last century.
