It can be said that the car show season doesn’t officially start until Blackhawk Cars and Coffee starts, and on the weekend of the March 4th Blackhawk Cars and Coffee premiered to a huge crowd! Interestingly, the newer format I described in my last Blackhawk Gallery post didn’t seem to be present, at least in terms of entrance fees. However, it seemed that a lot of show goers were signing up for membership to the Blackhawk Museum, so clearly this must be a good thing.
The show itself once again delivered an excellent experience for automotive enthusiasts and had nearly filled in the entire parking lot of the Blackhawk Plaza! Everything from exotics, to JDM imports were present at the show, and a few truly unique cars were there too. In fact, one of the cars I more or less became obsessed with while at the show was a completely custom-made, one-of-a-kind race car based off of a Fiberfab Valkrie kit car! The gentleman that owned it had been working on it for more than 30 years turning it into his vision of that the Ford GT40 might have looked like if its racing class had continued on to the Can-Am era of racing!
What a way to start the season!
