Nebraska Furniture Mart car show this weekend, I had a couple of people ask me why my dad didn't bring his old Corvette out. Well, he probably would have, but he was on special assignment as HMC's national correspondent, bringing up-to-the-minute coverage of the annual Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Cadillac (BPOC) show in Greenwood Village, Colo., near Denver.
Truth be told, the car show was just an excuse. He was really there to visit his old high school friend Pat Casey, who invited him to ride out in his very nice '61 Pontiac Catalina four-door hardtop.
Dad reports that the field was mostly made up of the featured marques, but there was one GMC Caballero, and a Hudson. Go figure.
The slideshow below contains pictures from both the BPOC show and the cruise. The BPOC photos were actually taken by Ed Roush, and unwitting photographer that the guys befriended at the show. Pat took the cruise pictures. There aren't all that many, so I'm combining them together in the same slideshow for your viewing enjoyment. And I want to thank my dad, Jim Hover, for going to the show, Ed Roush and Pat Casey for taking the pictures, and Pat for sending them to me. Good stuff, guys!
