Classic Automobiles Seen in Hopkinsville, KY

Pennyrile Classics Cruise-In




These photos are from the Pennyrile Classics cruise-in that was held on August 15, 2009, on the K-Mart parking lot in Hopkinsville, KY. It was reported that 150 cars were on exhibit by 5:45 pm. Anyone who was interested could walk around, look at the old cars, and talk to the owners.

The Pennyrile Classic Cars Club sponsored cruise-ins on the third Saturday night of each month from April through October.

Many of the owners have put untold hours of work into the engines of their cars as well as the bodies, so they like to open the hoods and show off. I am not particularly interested in the motors of cars, so I enjoyed best (and photographed more of) the vehicles that had their hoods closed.

If you can identify or provide information or a tell a story about the make and model of these cars, please add a comment.


This '57 Chevy (correct me if I'm wrong) is catching
a bit of reflection on its back end from another red car.


This one is a 1950 Ford. (I can read!)


This is an old Dodge. Here's a closeup of the
book that was displayed on its fender.


There's no question this is a Corvette, but I don't
know what year it is. (Another view.)


And this old pickup truck is a Chevrolet. Again, I don't
know its vintage. My guess is that it's from the 1940s.

 
A mid-century Ford sedan
Haha, I got out of that one, hmmm?

The "57" is a 55.
The dodge sedan is a 1939.
The Vette appears to be a 1962.
I believe the chevy pickup is a 48.
The green ford is a 1954.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
