Polk Street Cruise Rolls Into Amarillo
There was plenty of thunder Saturday in Downtown Amarillo before the rain moved in. No it wasn't the storm. It was the sounds of classic cars making their way down Polk Street as the annual cruise sponsored by the Amarillo Corvette Club rolled down the street.
For those who got downtown there was no shortage of vintage, modified and just outright different cars making their way down the avenue. Turnout was good with vehicles and patrons alike. One of the things that was enjoyable was getting a glimpse of automotive history.
There was no shortage of vintage trucks as this 1947 Ford F-1 made it's way down the road. Moonbeam hubcaps and shined up ready for show.
One of my favorites was this two tone Chevy pickup. Now I couldn't find the owner to confirm it was a '71 or '72 but it's not important, what makes it cool is it looks like a lot of work went into this truck. But it wasn't just the trucks that made their way down the road today.
There were plenty of cool cars too. every muscle car badge was represented among the more interesting ones was this sweet Oldsmobile 442.
Maybe a small block '67 Camaro Z/28 is your favorite?
Of course it was a family affair too, there were no shortage of vehicles that were loaded up with the family like this really slick green roadster with a suicide seat.
There were a few oddballs too...
This 1957 BMW Isetta could seat 4 technically but even so it's top speed on 67 miles per hour might not lend itself well to I-40 driving.
This bug definitely shows a little love for the mother road.
