Spent a good part of this weekend at the ACD Festival in Auburn, IN. Worldwide Auctions had a great selection of cars and trucks going across the auction block. Plus, lots of cars downtown and at the NATMUS museum.

I realize these pics aren't 1:43 models, but many of them have been made in our favorite scale. Can you pick them out? I'd love to see someone do all the variants of the Chrysler/DeSoto Airflows...

Thanks! The ACD remains one of my favorite car museums.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Please tell that the green Kaiser does NOT have a fadeaway paint feature as it appears.  I hope that is just lighting.  

The 1936 Pierce Arrow needs to be driven immediately through a 3D scanner so it can become a toy to be printed.

Great photographical coverage, thanks very much.

Great pics, Randy, and it was obviously a great show. Wow!  Yes, I have several of your 1:1 pictures among my models, including my favorite Kaiser-Darrin with those sliding doors;  I have four of them.  Sorry, none has an operating door.  Thanks for a great post!

Nice photos. I hope to attend the ACD Festival someday. Being a woodie guy, I have all the woodies shown in the colors they are shown except the '35 Auburn which looks like someones pipe dream.

@d-crowe It’s just lighting! It was turning dusk and the headlights of another car made that effect. Trust me… the owner kept it like it rolled off the showroom floor.

@parisi50 yes, it’s a fantasy piece, but it sure was beautiful. Somebody had a lot of $$ to fulfill that dream.
