Akron: Rubber City’s Classic Show Page 3

June 22, 2003

Akron Classic show

Among the mundane but rare was a believed-to-be one-of-a-kind-left 1935 GMC pickup truck. And of course there was a “copse of woodies” in a new category this year, including two virtually identical dark green 1948 Ford station wagons and a rare ’46 Mercury Sportsman with its odd-looking but actual ’41 Ford taillamps. Among the 25 judged classes were those specifically for Chevrolet, Corvette, Ford Model A, and both Ford Thunderbird and Ford Mustang through 1978.

I saw license plates from at least four states, so clearly the Akron show has a big draw. With a total pre-registration of 387 vehicles it is no small potatoes, and well worth a trip to Akron for future Father’s Days. For the ladies, the Stan Hywet house and gardens provide relief if the cars get too boring.
