Flemington Speedway Historical Society Car Show 2014

Hunterdon County Fairgrounds at South County Park near Ringoes, NJ. Music by Suckerpunch Suzie.

Black '49 Mercury Eight coupe with fender skirts. A car that James Dean made famous.

'59 Impala.

'59 Biscayne. Externally the only difference from the Impala and Bel Air was the side chrome. This was the entry-level, no-frills Chevy; manual transmission and I think no power steering. Marketed to farmers and others who just wanted basic transport. But the same sexy design as the high-end Chevys, curvy batwing rear end, teardrop taillights and all.

The first car I remember is a '67 Ford Galaxie.
