NOSTALGIA DAY CAR SHOW-2014
HOSTED BY THE ALTAMONT CRUISERS

For the last 25 years, the City of Livermore, California, has shut down several square blocks of Downtown to welcome hundreds of Classic, Custom, Muscle Cars and more. The Nostalgia Day Car Show is put on by the Altamont Cruisers, a local car club that is very active in the community. These shows help the club raise money that is donated to a variety of worthwhile charities, and over these past 25 years, those donations have exceeded $375,000. They certainly did a fine job of organizing the Nostalgia Day Car Show-2014. They’re also a very active car club, participating in all sorts of things throughout the year, and going to events together, as a club. They have a lot of fun together, and they’re a great bunch of people. True car guys...and gals.

Nostalgia Day Car Show-2014: THE SHOW

NOSTALGIA DAY CAR SHOW-2014
WHAT A DAY!

I like to get to these shows early, because I’m taking pictures, and the later it gets, the thicker the crowds become, making it much more difficult and time-consuming to get good pictures of the cars. The weather was absolutely perfect and I got there just as it opened at 9:00 am. Its a free show so you just park you car somewhere nearby and walk in. Several blocks of Downtown Livermore were cordoned off with cars lining both sides of the street, along with some vendor booths here and there. I heard the number “700 cars” and I don’t doubt it. I walked the 6 square blocks-or-so over the next four hours and took hundreds, if not thousands of pictures. I met lots of great people, many of them car owners, and got some great shots. The weather held out all day, nice and sunny, warm but never too hot. I got an excellent teriyaki chicken kabob along the way, and had an excellent day. Mind you, this is not a concourse-grade, Pebble Beach-type show with ultra-rare million-dollar Bugattis and Birdcage Mazeratis. These are the cars that most of us grew up with, mostly typical American classic cars and hot rods. I would highly recommend this show to anyone who loves that sort of thing and lives anywhere near the Bay Area.

WHERE THE HECK IS LIVERMORE?

For those of you who don’t know where Livermore is, it’s at the very eastern edge of the San Francisco Bay Area, along Highway 580. In fact, it’s the last town you go through as you leave the Bay Area, before climbing over the Altamont Pass with its endless wind generators silently churning out power. Livermore still has the feeling of a small town, even though its grown into a modern, vibrant city over the years. City planners have required developers to dedicate large portions of their land to grape vineyards, in support of a growing wine industry, and in an effort to become ‘another Napa Valley’. The welcome biproduct is that the neighborhoods have lots of space around them, with vineyards in between. Livermore sort of bridges the gap between the city and the country, with genuine farmers living alongside urban yuppies.

Nostalgia Day Car Show-2014: COOL STUFF


IS THIS YOUR CAR?

IS THIS YOUR CAR?
We’re trying something new. I go to every car show that I can drive to. And I take hundreds of top-quality photos of every fairly-original American muscle car that I see. I’ve spoken to many an owner (if I’m lucky, many are nowhere to be found). Many have asked to be sent a set of the pictures, so for $20 (via PayPal) I will send them the complete file of pictures of their car via email. These are high-resolution, dimensionally-large photos that could be blown up into posters .
ABOVE: 1957 Chrysler 300C Convertible, black. I got 15 great pictures of it, including interior.

GET PICTURES OF YOUR CAR
If you see your car below, then I have enough good photos of it to make this offer worthwhile to you. Because its at a car show, with other cars around it and uneven lighting, I can’t always get every angle that I want, and some don’t come out too well. All photos will be watermarked with “American-Muscle-Cars.net” in the lower corner, as seen in the examples below. All of these images are copyrighted by me, and I will continue to own them, as I will be granting you a license to use them as you wish. If you don’t see your car below, but you saw me taking pictures of it, its probably because they didn’t come out well for some reason. Again, if you do see it below, the pictures that I have are good enough, in my opinion, to justify the price. If you’d like copies of these great pictures of your car at the Nostalgia Day Car Show-2014 for yourself, email me that you want a set, and I’ll give you PayPal instructions for payment. Please include your name, phone number, the make/model/year and color of your car.

BELOW: Perhaps the most original streetrod I've ever seen, I don't know what else to call it so I dubbed it the "Steampunk Rod". That's all polished copper. The interior looks like it came out of a 1930's fighter plane, with a speedo that's pure Captain Nemo. Like I said, I've never seen anything else like it. Congrats to whoever built it. I got 9 pictures of it, interior & exterior.

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics.
