Finally made it to the Subway Classic Cruise-In that is held on the second Friday of every month. I was a little worried that the clouds that were rolling in would put a damper on the turn out, but  I worried for nothing. There were quite a few locals that rolled into the parking lot. Showing off their pride and joys and chatting it up with others who share their love of beautiful classic cars. I hope to be out next month to spend more time with this awesome group of people, and of course Super Subway Man himself.

Come on, Friday! I have been waiting for a month for this Friday to roll around, and all to go visit Subway here in Toccoa, Georgia. Last month, I happened to glance over that their parking lot and my jaw dropped at the dozens of cars that were parked out. Turns out they have a “Classic Cruise-In” on the second Friday of every month. Of course, my camera was at home instead of in my car, and I was on a mission to get dinner for the family who were waiting hungrily at home for my return. I vowed that I would not miss the next one. I will definitely be there this Friday, if even only for an hour or two armed with my trusty camera. There are some really great cars that are local, that I only see in passing driving down the road. To see them all gathered together will be great. I’m hoping that there will be a good turn out, despite Rod Run being in Pigeon Forge this weekend. So ta-ta for now!

I’ve decided to be a little retroactive today and cover a show I went to a few weeks back.
The 35th annual antique car show in Clarkesville, Georgia was held the weekend of AUgust 17, 18, and 19th.
This happened to be my birthday weekend, so what better way to celebrate it than by going and
seeing some neat cars. The rain held me back from going on Friday and Saturday, but with a little
blue sky peeking through and some persuasion from a friend, I packed up my camera and “assistants” and
headed to the Habersham Fair Grounds. There was fairly big turn out considering the weather and the fact
that it was the tail end of the show. I’m pretty sure that most were there to enjoy the homemade ice cream
that was being made on site, but we wont tell any of the competitors that. My girls and I made our way through the rows of cars, stopping to look at a 60’s mustang here, and a vintage army jeep with trailer there. There were all types of cars and trucks that made it out to the grounds. Everything from VW Beetles and vans to new model minitrucks. The latter are the current like of my youngest because the airbags facinate her 5 year old mind. Well, enough talking. On to the photos!

This was my first time to attend the JDRF car show held in Clayton, Georgia, and I must say it was one of the best shows I have been to in quite a while. The show is hosted by Jeff Southard of S & S Auto parts (aka Carquest of Clayton) and benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. Over the past 6 years, they have raised around $18,000 for this awesome cause. Over 100 entrants came out to participate in the show, some as far as Florida. The weather had a few worried, but it ended up being a perfect day for a show. This should be a “must attend” show for all car lovers in the state!

Here are some of my show favorites:
