  1. Wow. I had for fun a Fleetmaster 1948 if I am remembering correctly. It ran like a top in 1973 when I drove it for a bit. My favorites here are the 1959 DeSoto and the 1951 Excalibur. I also drove a red convertible Camaro. Now that got some attention! I don’t remember its year But guess close to this one. I drove it as Dad collected a bit and I well one weekend I snuck into his garage and lets say borrowed it for a weeks trip to Iowa ha. He didn’t really care though. My first car was a Chevrolet Super Sport. 4 banger manual of course. I could power shift at 16. Powder yellow and the hottest car in my little town ha. Yeah things have changed but good times these were. Later I switched and dad to his chagrin bought me a ford pick up Red. He was like Debbie why do you want a truck. I said well I might want to live in it. Ha. I love these memories. My poor father! haha. XO

  2. Glad that so many attended and that it brought back fond memories, but very early Sunday morning there was a traffic jam of vintage cars, idling and revving their engines all the way up 5th Ave, with pollution added to already bad air quality. Wonder if there’s a way to avoid that.

  3. It’s only one morning. Cars have to line up somewhere. Think of all the people that enjoyed this event. And money being spent at Edmonds merchants. It was a happy day for lots of people. Families were laughing and friends hugging. Those vintage cars made for a Great Edmonds Kind of Day! And let’s not forget it was Sept 11th!!!

  4. This is a now a traditional annual event in Edmonds that is family friendly, fun, and business friendly for our food and hospitality industries. It brings many old Edmond’s High School classmates together as well. The proceeds support a good cause. This year three of my class of ’64 friends ended up with their three old cars parked right next to each other in front of Hazel Miller Plaza. Total coincidence. No prior planning. Old friends, old cars, celebrating old times. It just doesn’t get much better than that. It’s too bad the event coincided with a bad air quality day this year, but in the great scheme of things, so what?

    1. It was actually a 1957 — just checked the photographer’s notes and it was a typo on my end. Thanks for noticing!
