One of the benefits of living in Santa Fe with its historic connection to Route 66 is that there are several vintage car shows a year on the Santa Fe Plaza.

      Thanks, Jerome! Car shows are usually in the summer. Frequently they will be part of a vintage group traveling across Rte 66. (Until 1937 Rte 66 went through Santa Fe.) For this one I just happened to be near the Plaza when I started seeing these great old cars start to show up. Some were authentic renovations; others (like this) were artistically adapted while still respecting the basic vehicle’s lines, and some hotrods.

      Thanks, Jim! Someone obviously put a lot of lovingly detailed work into this old Chevy. It’s always fun to happen on some great old cars. One of the benefits of living on (pre-1937) Rte 66!
