American Car Day 2018 (1).

The American Car Day at Trentham Racecourse gets bigger every year. I'm astonished at the new arrivals in the country each time I attend.
'36 Ford Coupe has that "used" look.

'71 Chev El Camino.

'65 Chevy convertible has had a top chop.
283cid V8.

An Indian and his Mustang.

1970 Plymouth Roadrunner.
One of my favourites.

Pontiac Trans Am.

'55 Chevy Bel Air 4 door sedan

1969 Ford F100 Ranger.

1966 Ford Galaxie 500.
351 cubes.
'94 Chevy Corvette 350cid.
I like those steel wheels with the wide rim bands.
Same wheels again.
This time a '67 Impala 327cid.

'57 Chrysler New Yorker.
Does the rego plate give a clue to its engine size?

1972 Chevy Cheyenne C10 with 350cid of push.
I like some of the American pick-ups, but the examples around this era are a bit square and characterless for my liking.
Another 1970 car, a Mustang.
Some good looking Americans around this era.
351cid V8.

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 has a 351cid as standard, but this one has a bigger option fitted.
Note the different frontal treatment between this one and the '70 model above

1965 Ford Mustang is a base model with the 170cid 6 cylinder engine and steel wheels with full cover trims.

1967 Mercury Monterey has 390 cubes of V8.

Massive, but impressive, the only way to describe a Cadillac.
1968 Fleetwood  with 472 cubic inches.

Another Caddy, about 1980 I guess.

1954 Buick Roadmaster externally and...
