I am not what you’d call an auto enthusiast in the sense that I don’t regularly attend shows, meetings or gatherings, but occasionally I’m drawn by the color and shine of these vintage models and can’t resist getting a shot or two.
These photos were taken at Volo Auto Museum in Volo, Illinois and a show in Long Grove, Illinois. Volo is a great place to see famous movie and TV cars as well as all kinds of classic vehicles from military to muscle.
The Museum is open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm and hosts many special events throughout the year including cruise-ins, concerts and festivals. I believe they have something called a Haunted Trolley Tour this September and October.
Many towns in the Chicago area host Cruise Nights and from what I understand these events are quite popular.
Speaking of curves, It would be remiss of me if I did not include this picture of Marilyn Monroe reclining on the hood of a classic auto at Volo.
