On July 4th, the city of Seward, Nebraska (which was named in 1979 by the United States Congress “America’s Official Forth Of July City-Small Town USA”), puts on an awesome Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show.
Close to 200 cars, trucks, and motorcycles of every style imaginable filled a four block area of Downtown Seward. They lined both sides of the streets and were even lined up down the middle of the street. Thousands of people looked and admired cars from all over Nebraska, and surrounding states.
This 1948 Chevrolet Coupe is not something you see every day, this copper colored beauty was a sight for sore eyes for sure. I really love to see something different than what you normally see at every car show.
What a true survivor was this 1962 Buick that was originally owned by Mrs. Gold of Gold’s Department Store. Mrs. Gold was chauffeur driven around in this 46,000 mile Jewel since it was new. This car is an absolutely incredible, gorgeous, time capsule.
You don’t see many Mercury Cougar’s at very many shows, much less a convertible. This baby, had it all. luxury, class, and those Cragar SS wheels just finished it off very nicely.
This big block powered Hot Rod, is a common sight tooling around the Lincoln area, and is a very nice mix of new and old school, and I bet a blast to drive.
What’s not to love about a super clean, restored 1963 Impala, with a 425 horse, 409 mill residing between the fenders of this beauty.
This 1967 Ford Fairlane GTA convertible from Cedar Rapids, Nebraska came to the show looking for a new home. What a great car to hit the road in, with the top down of course.
Late Model Muscle was on hand as well, even though this 3rd Generation Chevrolet Nova never came from the general with a big block. By looking at the go fast goodies under the hood, and the big meats under the quarter panels, this beast meant business. It was really nice to see a late 70’s Nova done so well, most of these body styles ended up as a dirt track race car.

Bikes were abundant at the Seward show, and this Kawaski Ninja, has been pulling down plenty of awards at the local shows. This bike doesn’t travel around on a trailer. It gets plenty of miles put on it, and even a few hits of the nitrous bottles, will get your cardio going big time.
This original 1916 Studebaker was this family’s first car and has been in the same family since it was purchased new in 1916. What a treat to see such an amazingly, loved, and cared for piece of automotive history.
One car that is seldom seen, much less looking so right, is this 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport. While many thought that the colonnade body was the end of the Chevelle line.
This extremely nice example hands down looked the part of a muscle car. The American Racing Torque Thrusts looked great and had this “Forgotten A-Body” Dressed To Kill.
