While staying at Ver-El RV park in Concord, NC we were parked across the street from Charlotte Motor Speedway, we noticed a lot of classic cars heading into the parking lot. Twice a year the racetrack hosts the Charlotte AutoFair, where owners can put their cars up for sale or trade. There are also vendors selling parts for every type of vehicle, and displays of some unique vehicles.
We enjoy looking at old cars, so we walked over to check it out. We were also able to wander around and check out the speedway. Here is a view from the infield of the bleachers. The cars were displayed around the 1.5 mile race track.
With well over a thousand cars on display, it was hard to pick what photos to display. This blog is a bit photo heavy, but if you enjoy cars, we hope you enjoy this post!
This fabulous corvette was listed at $55,000 and did have a “sold” sign on it.
This car is owned by NASCAR driver Kyle Busch.
Before the mini van, families traveled in style!
And remember the days when everyone had their own ash tray, even in the third row bench seat of the wagons?!
The show had some very old and beautifully restored vehicles…
as well as this truck, which could easily tow just about any 5th wheel!
There were some muscle cars on display.
And some unique vehicles we have never seen before.
Engines were much simpler in the older cars.
One of my favorites was this 1964 Impala SS that came with “factory power steering”. This car is “my age” and was all decked out in purple, my favorite color.
This 1956 Chevrolet Del Ray was getting a lot of inquiries, as it had been fully restored and was immaculate inside and out.
I’m not really sure if these guys were planning on taking a spin around the track on their scooters!
They will have another auto fair in September, so if you are in the area, you may want to check it out.
