Oy, am I tired. Like, deep-fried double-oak-barreled tired, the tired you can only get from waking up at 4 am and pushing a bunch of microcars across a busy intersection then bring out in the hot sun for hours and hours and drinking two gins and tonics and then more sun and ending it with pushing those same microcars back across the busy intersection. But it was all worth it, because it was all done in service of the Ninth Annual Galpin Car show, and holy hams, was it huge and amazing.
Even better, The Autopian had our own little corner, complete with four microcars (Messerschmitt KR250, Peel P50, Berkeley Sports SE328, and Bantam delivery van) and David’s Jeep, precariously perched on a rock.
There was an astounding turnout of cars, all kinds of cars, from Edsels to Citroëns to Zagatos to Maseratis to Jaguars to Volkswagens to Lotuses to everything else in between, and plenty of things that defied easy categorization. We’ll have more content and videos and magic lantern shows about the show to come, but until then, why not enjoy this little overview video starring David and myself? What could it hurt?
Did I mention I was tired? I am. deeply. So I’m going to let that video do the talking, because I need to catch a flight tomorrow morning.
Oh, and to the Autopian readers we saw out at the show, thank you so much for coming out! That means a lot to us!
