No car show is complete without rock n roll. I am sitting for a minute before moving on to another part of the Cars for Charities Show.

A friend of mine goes to all kinds of car shows with her hubby and from what she's told me the ones she's been to play the really old 50s stuff, not the good R&R of the late 60s or early 70s. Is that the kind of R&R you heard?

Usually 50's--the soundtrack of my childhood, with some sixties. Not 70's.

I never got to hear much 50s music other than country western @GardenGerty I never liked c&w so didn't care much for music until the Beatles.

@rebelann Nope, I do not recall any country and western at the show, but I do know what you mean. I am thinking of songs like "At the Hop" and Buddy Holley things.

They had an Australian "Ute" a utility vehicle that was like a coupe with a truck bed on back, by Ford. I will have to scratch my brain to remember what truck it was based off of.

@GardenGerty These are a dime a dozen in Australia. Virtually every farm will have a 'ute' and they even have a Ute Muster where everyone turns up with their utes and, usually, their swags and their dogs.

@JudyEv I went over and read about them on Wikipedia. I believe the front of this was a Falcon body.

I love car shows. They are so expensive around here that for the three of us to go it would break the bank.

I remembered that you had said you like them. The discounted ticket for this show was $11. We also ate out on the way home. This was my husband's birthday celebration. I will try to think of discussions that require pictures.

@celticeagle Here is a pretty one. I loved how they set up mirrors so you could see the under body work as well. I love the classic colors, but the new modern paint jobs are as pretty as candy.

This is a real customized Chevy Suburban . It is pulling a trailer made from an "Essex"--not sure what that is. This is a road worthy car, with tv and other entertainment features plus rear heat and air, etc.

It was fun, something that supports a good cause and something hubby loves, so we did this for his birthday.

No, come to think of it, I didn't. We saw some interesting and exotic things though. Ever hear of an Izetta?

1957 BMW Izetta
@JohnRoberts It looks like it has an airplane body. It has a fan like a swamp boat propelling it from the rear and has been out on the ice cruising in Minnesota before. I thought it was a helicopter at first. It is made by BMW. This is a 1957 model.

They have a "Road Rocket Rumble" in Indianapolis every year, and there's always some great rockabilly music acts playing there live. I don't go for the cars, I go for the music!!

I can see you doing that. I go mostly for the atmosphere. I hardly know one old car from another. It is great, usually there are some DJ's from one radio station or another with the playlists they think we all will enjoy.
