Story and photography by Steve and Tracy Junker

Recently our town hosted an annual car show. We live in rural America, so this was not a huge car show, but maybe that makes it more fun. When speaking with one of the vehicle owners, we learned that his truck was not well received at an earlier show, but he had been getting a lot of interest and positive feedback at our smaller rural show.

At these smaller shows, the car owners typically seem more willing to talk to the people that have questions about how long they have owned the vehicle, what they have done to it and a host of other questions. It is a fun way to spend a beautiful day getting some exercise for the body and the mind. We hope you enjoy these pictures.
