Ironwood Country Club Car Show

A couple of weeks ago, Ironwood Country Club in Palm Desert, California held a car show on the golf course driving range.  Golf driving range-not car driving range.  It was a beautiful sunny day and there were many cars of varying types and vintages.  After golfing 18 holes, the Lovely Sharon and I attended the car show and it was great fun.  Here are a few photos I took that day.

Cool Car

Our friend Carol's car

What a paint job

One of my favorite cars in the show, a Packard "Woody"

 Our friend Carol's car

There was a whole row of Porsche's

Perfect car for the drive in burger joint

The Lovely Sharon checking out an old one

Our friend Dave restored this beautiful Rolls Royce

What a fun event.  There is always something fun going on at Ironwood Country Club
