On Sunday, we went to the Geneva Concours d’Elegance car show in Geneva, Illinois. A pretty fancy sounding name for a pretty lovely antique car show. One of the main streets, 3rd Street, and several of the side streets were rimmed with antique cars in pristine condition. Be sure to click onto the pictures to get a better look.
It was one of the rare sunny Sundays of this summer with low humidity, making it a pleasure to walk around among a friendly crowd of car admirers and collectors and to appreciate the craftsmanship, ingenuity, mechanics and engineering of man and his machine.
For some reason I cannot explain, I was fascinated Sunday with the tires and rims and reflections on the cars, which were buffed to a shine and reflected the sun creating images of all who stopped to look.
Anybody want to race?
We broke for lunch in a quiet Italian restaurant called Chianti’s.

Anyone remember this magic bus?
Then there were other modes of transportation.
While this fellow just stood and watched.
Then we stopped for some cold drinks and raced back home.
Not really. We took our time and enjoyed the walk back to the car.
It looks like we are at an amusement park in the house of mirrors, doesn’t it?
Can you find us?
