2011 Alameda Classic Car Show

The 18th Annual Park Street Classic Car Show took place on Saturday, October 8. More than 400 classic vehicles were on display in Alameda’s historic downtown district. Classic cars of every description lined Park Street between Encinal Ave and Buena Vista Ave — Vintage Show Cars, Roadsters, Coupes, Hot Rods, Antique Muscle Cars, and more. Most of the cars come from those magical decades — the ’50s and the ’60s. But there were plenty of classics from the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s along with muscle cars from the ’70s.

Everyone seemed to love my ’67. I hung the original window sticker which got a lot of attention from a crowd of over 10,000 people!

I even ran into this guy on the way home. We stopped to chat for over an hour! I love the vintage VW culture. Everyone is so friendly, and always wants to hear your story.
