Quite the variety at the July Liberty Car Cruise
I had just gotten back into town, and even I admit, I thought about staying home. But I'm glad I didn't, because I definitely would have missed out. It was one heck of a turnout, and there were lots of great cars to look at all around Liberty's historic downtown square.
There was also a really nice, stock '39 Mercury coupe there. I used to not be that big of a fan of those, because the way the rear fenders covered the wheels always made them look sort of frumpy compared to a comparable Ford. Well, that, and a '39 Ford coupe had such a perfect roofline and everything that nothing really can compare. But I'm starting to like the Merc better all the time--especially when you see one as nice as this. Maybe I'm getting more open-minded as I get older.
And speaking of seeing a variety of vehicles, here comes the photo slideshow. I took more than 200 pictures, so you should get a pretty good idea what things were like. The only thing you'll really miss is how hot it was.
