The annual East Texas Auto & Cycle Show is this weekend at the Harvey Convention Center.
And for the car buff in all of us, it’s like Christmas all over again.
Even the parking lot at Harvey Hall looked like a car show.
But the real East Texas Auto & Cycle show is inside.
And it was packed from the minute the doors opened.
The show benefits the East Texas Crisis Center, and features vintage and classic cars, trucks and motorcycles from every era and there will even be some Hollywood vehicles as well.
This 1935 Pierce Arrow belonged to actor and comedian George Burns and was used in the Paul Newman- Robert Redford film “The Sting.”
This customized 1955 Ford Thunderbird was designed by a 24-year-old.
You’ll see a rare Stutz…beautiful restored military vehicles…and everything from pony cars…to muscle cars…to forgotten, and unfairly reviled General Motors orphans.
This Chrysler 300 sedan was signed by attendees of last year’s Golden Globe Awards, and raffled off to benefit charities in Haiti.
Rare antique trucks…british sports cars…classic motorcycles…all were there.
And the folks at Tyler Ford provided , as they do every year, a beautiful Mustang to be raffled off with proceeds benefitting the Crisis Center.
The show will run through Sunday until 4pm at the Harvey Convention Center.
