Atlantique City This Weekend

   From coast to coast, there are a lot of shows happening this weekend. The amazing Atlantique City is happening in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and that’s a must-see show if you’re into antique anything! The aisles are packed with everything from jewelry to furniture, to glassware, to pottery, to toys…you get the idea!    A...

Peotone Swap Meet

   I didn’t think it was cold last Sunday morning until we started walking the outdoor portion of the swap meet sponsored by the Peotone Car Club. Brrrrrr!!! Needless to say, the outdoor vendors are hearty folks!    We ran into a ton of car enthusiast friends, and stopped to get caught up with everyone. That’s...

And I really wish I could go—after all, it was MY idea to go in the first place—alas, commitments in Wisconsin will prevent me from witnessing the Pile-Up...

“Orphan” Auto Picnic

   A few years ago, my dad and his friends (all old car fans and Old Cars Weekly readers, of course) attended an “Orphan” car show, and they came back with great stories about the show and the fabulous array of discontinued “Orphan” cars that appeared. He called last night to let me know that they’re...
