The Pharaohs' Easter Picnic!

One of the largest -- and coolest -- car clubs in the South Bay got together at the park on Sunday to have a barbecue. They set up piñatas and a "bouncy castle" for the kids and cooked up a mess of fine-smelling food.

Naturally, they all showed up in their shiny coches...



Except for this lone '55 Packard (which still got the low-rider treatment), they all brought their Chevvies...



I don't know if I dug this cool '49 Sedan Delivery (complete with metal sunshade over the windshield) the most...



...or this sharp '54 with Powerglide and spinners...



...or one of these fine, fine pre-war caruchas...



Couldn't hang around long enough to decide. Just sniffing all that BBQ was making me hon-greeee!

Hey! My folks had one of those Chevies like that one when I was growing up!

Sounds like you had a great time there,

and that tan one looks like a Bonnie and Clyde car!

Very nice photographs.
We had a '55 black plymouth when I was little girl.

You didn't try to sell some carbon offsets?
It is encouraging to see it is still legal to cook out in CA. I thought it had been outlawed.

john -- These guys probably spewed out less carbon than one Al Gore airport-to-speaking-engagement motorcade.

Some things are still legal in CA. Not many, but some....

It's a tough choice between the '54 and the sedan delivery.

Got any Metropolitans?
