This judged show was sponsored by my C21 office and the "Classic Chevy Club of No. Ark. We had a total of 67 judged cars and I think everyone in town stopped by. At least 910 free C21 hot-dogs were eaten.
What a beautiful day for a car show!
This really nice '30A was probably the oldest.

My Stude sits at the left front just past the golf cart.
I found this '63 V8,AC,Daytona 4 door in the spectator parking lot.
Nothing special, just a nice driver.
You always have to plug the sponsor!;)
I'd like to think it wasn't the free hot dogs and drinks, but hey, I really did have the best orphan at the show. [^]
It really is a lot of fun to have a Stude at a mostly Chev/Ford/Chry show. My car really did get a lot more attention than the Vett next to me and the really nice '62 Impala h.t. behind me. But then I live in a retirement town, lots of old folks, and the car always puts a smile on their face. :D

Thanks for the pictures. I am glad that you posted a picture of the office because up to then, I had no idea what "C21" is.

When I saw the Lark in the parking lot, I first thought 1962, but then I see that you are correct. It is a 1963 that has a 1962 grille.

I also like the 1964 Sport Fury hardtop. In 1964, my father and I both bought new 1964 Fury hardtops.

Congrat's. on your award. It reminds me of a local SDC show where we used a piston with a severly bent connecting rod attached to it as a hard luck award.

Looks like you had a good show. Wish I Could have been there. I would have given you a run for your money on the orphan award. Maybe next year.
