The annual Amelia Cruisers car show was held last weekend under clear skies and cool temps (that’s 65 degrees) in downtown Fernandina. The streets were closed to traffic and a superb lineup of restored and specialty cars/trucks/fire engines/dragsters, etc. were put on display. Its hard to imagine the total combined hours of work all these owners put into the restoration and make-overs of these historic cars. The collection varied from a Volkswagen beetle to RollsRoyce and everything in between.
Crowds were good and everyone was impressed by the quality of the restorations and the variety of cars represented. Most of our weekend guests visited the display and found it to be enjoyable even if they weren’t hard core car folks. One was tempted to buy one of the cars from his youth but regained control of his wallet with help from a spouse. We definitely relate to the hard work of restoring and maintaining something historical as we do it nearly every day in maintaining a 152 year old house. It’s hard work but rewarding when a part of history is maintained. Attached are a series of pictures from the wonderful cars on display. Enjoy!
