For 17 years the day has been sunny, but the forecast for June 17 was for rain.
On June 17th, only the most intrepid owners of antique and lovingly preserved vehicles made their way down potholed Pine Mill Road, in itself a hazard—the sensible stayed home.
The setting for the show is so beautiful and the welcome so warm that our car show has become overwhelmingly popular with motor adventurers and chroniclers.
This year, in part due to the unusually low turnout, just 71 vehicles, and in part to the cooler weather, it made for a peaceful, gentle day.
It turned out that there was only a sprinkling of rain, a kind of dew on the proceedings.
But the mood, as it always is, was grand—though the coffers this year may, regretfully, not be as full as hoped. The annual Car Show is the Equinunk Historical Society’s primary source of revenue for the whole year.
For the first time, there was a draw on the People’s Choice, in no consecutive order: Mike and Tammi Hood’s 1970 Ford Torino and Fred Schmidt’s 2010 Chevy Camaro SS/RS. And then sponsor Ted Dobkowski II endowed us with a new category, Best Paint Job, which was righteously bestowed on Clarke and Christa Taninies’ gleaming 1969 Chevy Chevelle.
