Another fun Heritage Days Celebration came to an end yesterday with the annual Classic Car Show at Teepee Tonka Park just below the viaduct in Faribault. This hidden gem of a park was the perfect setting for a very relaxing afternoon strolling through the many beautiful vehicles on display.

After a wonderful Father's Day lunch with my wife and two oldest children, my son and I decided to head down to the car show. The first thing we saw was an old 1952 1 ton M.A.S.H. ambulance and right behind that was a 1938 Dodge bus which had been painstakingly converted into a one of a kind camper. it was just as nice on the inside as it was on the outside. You could tell there was a lot of sweat and love poured into this vehicle. We spent about an hour checking out the various cars and trucks that were on display and I found the car that I'm going to buy if I ever win the lottery. It was a 1970 Dodge Charger RT and it was perfect. Maybe someday I'll own something similar but I'm not going to hold my breath. As i was leaving I saw a beast of a Pontiac wagon in the parking lot. Although it was unfinished, I hope the owner decides to return it to it's former state of glory someday and I see it at a future car show.

It was great to see some of the familiar cars I've seen at other local car shows as well as some new custom and vintage machines. I hope you were able to make it out to this final Faribault Heritage Days event. If not, make sure you stop downtown every third Friday of the month for Faribault Main Street Car Cruise Night.
