A little rain doesn't dampen spirits at the 25th Annual Ol' Marais River Run. 714 pictures from the big show in Ottawa
How big? Well to give you an idea, consider that Saturday's forecast called for rain. Saturday's forecast proved to be correct from the moment the sun came up. And they still managed to draw in more than 1,300 entries.
Favorites ... where to begin? When there are this many cars, it gets difficult to break them down. But I'll take a crack at it.
There were several exceptional stock vehicles in the house, including a '53 Buick Skylark (!), a '57 Chrysler 300, a '64 Grand Prix sporting 421 badges on the front fenders, and a really pretty '53 Mercury coupe with Cadillac wheel covers.
In the end, I took more than 700 pictures of the 2011 Ol' Marais River Run Car Show, and I am including them in the slideshow below. But I'm warning you, there is no commercial break, so if you need to use the restroom, do so before you start the pictures.
