Woodruff, SC classic car show.
I was fortunate enough to go to the above little town in South Carolina to their classic car show this past weekend. They had all of main street lined with wonderful cars and trucks, but these for the ones that stood out to me the most. A 1965 Chevrolet Impala, 1970 Camaro SS, a 1955 Chevrolet Belair, and a 1972 Chevrolet Nova.
I disagree on that Nova - it’s definitely not a ‘72 because the “extended bumper” era began with the ‘73 models…looks to me to be a ‘74.

Nice cars but I don't care for the wheels on the Camaro and Impala. The period correct wheels on the 55 and Nova look great.
@terryslekar It could be. I could not remember my conversation with the owner. Thanks for pointing it out.
@bob-jackman Bob for me the wheels are what make the cars stand out. I was not a fan of the original wheels and since these are both customs, I feel like they fit perfectly. IMO.
All are nice looking Chevrolets, but I have one more correction for you. The Willow Green Impala is actually a 1966, similar to my wagon.
Thanks for sharing your visit with us, John. I love the Camaro, particularly since it has the RS split bumpers. I've always thought that generation of the GM F-bodies was one of the better designs to come out of Detroit. To my eye, it is ageless.
The '55 Chevy reminds me of a car a close friend had in the late 60s. It was metalflake blue and had a heavily built 327 with a Hurst floor shifter, mags and a rolled and pleated leather interior. He had baffles in the exhaust that could be removed for an extra bit of power. That car was a monster! As the song says, "We shut 'em up and we shut 'em down."
Your post makes me want to go to a show this weekend!
@pete-rovero Thanks Pete for the correction. I talked to so many owners hard to keep track.
