A Look Back At The Last Fling ‘Til Spring Car Show

Every year the Road Gems Car Club puts on a truly amazing car show in West Point, Nebraska, and this year was no exception.

On September 18th, 2016, Main St in West Point, Nebraska was filled with over 700 of almost every kind of cars, trucks, and bike imaginable.

Great music, food, and souvenir vendors could be found everywhere along this amazing stretch of West Point.

This Thunderbird was unlike anything I’d ever seen, it had so many cool, custom touches, all over it. Between the Tunnel Ram with dual carbs sticking out of the hood, side pipes, and those awesome wheels, everything about this car was just so cool.

When it comes to 50’s automotive icons, a lead sled Merc can’t be beat. This unbelievable chopped Mercury has it all, from all the custom body work, flames, wide whites, to the wild steering wheel, and white tuck and roll interior. Long Live Cool!!!

1960 El Caminos are a rarity at any show, this beauty had such a great balance between old and new. The larger more modern wheels still had an old school flare that tied in nicely with the Tri-Power 348 topped with finned aluminum goodies under the hood.

Everything from Baja Racers to being the Fastest Woman on 4-Wheels, holding a record of 398 mph, and a top speed of 440 mph.

Bikes of almost every make, model, and style could be found at the show. This classic Honda Dream brought back memories of the one I had when I was a teenager.

Trucks like these could take top honors at any show around, and there were plenty to choose from at West Point. I’d hate to have to be the judge for that class.
