I haven’t been to Wavecrest, the annual gathering of woodies at Moonlight Beach, in more than a decade, so I drove down Saturday. Here’s what I saw:
It was really difficult to get a clear shot of the cars because they were swarmed with people. I and this fellow in the picture were about the only men not wearing Hawaiian shirts.
Most of the cars were in beautiful shape. This one was a little rough and had spider glass.
Behold! A Packard with side-mounted spare and spotlight. Notice the gorgeous (and expensively restored) wooden body.
Ford was well-represented too.
And Plymouth/Dodge. There was also at least one Town and Country, but I didn’t get a picture of it. [Oh yes I did!]
[Update: This is the Town and Country. I thought I got a picture of it.]
Vintage accessories not only included hula dolls on the dash and fuzzy dice hanging from the rear-view mirror. I found a set of perfect period Scotch coolers and Samsonite luggage.
And, yes, drive-in food.
