The All American Car Show sponsored by the NCMCC is another one I try not to miss. It is held annually at the Loveland Outlet Malls. The groupings are by year of manufacture. Cars from all over the area, including a couple from Wyoming, were there. The GT was entered in and won best in class for 2005 and newer. Again, I got a better treat at the end of the show with details later.



This 66 GT350-H belongs to a fellow I know only from the shows. We went on a photo shoot with his GT and my Cobra a number of years ago.

Here's that Boss 351 again.

There were two '07 Shelby GTs.

57 Chevy's sure are cool.

Again, lots of pictures and stories about the GT :)

This Shelby GT had just been bought by its owner - it is "her" car - a week or two before. It was an 80 mile "garage queen". They bought it for mid-20's (with no actual number disclosed). Pristine!!!

One of the show's sponsors is Hearts and Horses (who benefit from the fund raiser part of the show). They brought two of the cutest little miniature horses (note they are real horses, not ponies)

So here's the Special Treat portion of the show.




The Loveland Fire Department always comes with a couple of their rescue vehicles. This year they brought their 105' ladder truck

They extended the ladder.

Near the end of the show they came on the PA and asked for someone to go up on the ladder to take pictures. I wandered over expecting the NCMCC photographer to show up. He didn't.

So I strapped on a safety belt and a helmet and climbed the steps to the top of the ladder - all 105 extended feet, but as I reckon up about 70-75' off the ground - to shoot the "field".

Climbing to the top of a firetruck is probably any kid's dream. I grew up on a farm and in construction so heights don't bother me - but it was fun. I still don't know how they figured a civilian with no training or knowledge of my history could just go for a hike up a ladder truck, but I decided I was going to hurry them and get over 1/2 way before they changed their minds :) There was a fireman who followed me up. I'm sure here was there to catch me if I fell [NOT] :)

If you've never been up one, it was amazingly "stable" - there was no side-to-side sway (but there was no wind) and the ladder with two of us on it only sprung 3-4 inches at the very end.

This was the best show of the year. A win and a treat!!!


Anyway, the shots from the top.

Yes, Chuck (with the GT350H) said he got some. He was supposed to email me one but I haven't heard from him and can't find his email in my history. Sigh...

Very cool. We had a 85 Ff ladder. Wind would blow it and it also bounced alot.
