This year the whole family went to the World of Wheels show in Columbus, Ohio. We had a really good time. There were a lot of cars around, and we got their early before the crowds got too bad. There was also a little extra entertainment in the back of the show with a stunt bicycle team. I think Max enjoyed that more than the show. Shannon was particularly disappointed by the lack of 1969 Chargers. If you see any pictures that you'd like to see the orginal larger images, please e-mail me. Also, if there are mistakes, etc. please e-mail me so I can correct them.

 

You couldn't miss the signs as you entered the Convention Center.
Shannon and Max in front of a nice 57 Chevy.
Very nice 1930 Ford pickup. The picture really doesn't do it justice.
A 33 Ford. The doors had been changed to suicide and the interior was totally redone. Very nice. I wish there had been more of these at the show.
Black and white on this year Chevy had much more impact than I thought it would. I have several other pictures of this car as well as a picture of the information sheet that was posted with the car. Something about the black and white paint with the white walls really made this car stand out.
Shannon and Max in front of a truck. The paint job was very intricate, and the bed was all wood. I think Max was more impressed with it being a "dump truck" than anything else.
Max and I in front of the Ebay Fastforward Fastback Mustang built by Troy Trepanier. Very nice car.
Three quarter shot. I wish I could have gotten a little closer to get a good interior shot as well, but the lights and the little digital camera would not cooperate.
Shot of the back. This was definitely the car that drew the most attention at the show.
This was one amazing Ford Excursion. I was looking through a magazine recently, and saw that this truck has won a few awards. Look at the back wheel well.
Yep, monitors in the wheel well. This Excursion was out of control for tailgating
I'm not sure if you can see it in this picture, but there's also a grill on built in. I think we walked around this SUV three times, and still probably didn't see all the customization work.
Shelby 350 Convertible.
1973 Ford Mustang MachI. I don't know why I have a soft spot for these ugly big Mustangs, but they are my favorite years for the Mustang.
Yet another truck with a very intricate paint scheme. There were several cars also that had very nice detailed paint schemes that really caught your eye, but this one just seemed to go on forever.
Hot rod Mercury. This was my favorite car at the show. I'd have taken this home over the Ebay Mustang.
Tri five tail light. A work of art in its own right.
Shannon and Max stopping in front of a Challenger.
The extra entertainment in the back of the show. After Max had gotten to the end of his rope for car shows, this got him calmed down enough that I was able to go through a lot of the show one more time.

The show floor as seen from the bleachers at the back of the convention center. This is just a very narrow view of some of the cars.

I think this image is misleading because there were so many other cars in attendance.
