2019 Muscle Shoals Hot Rod Run

By  | June 3, 2019 | Filed under: News

It was a bright, sunny day in Beautiful Spring Park, located in Tuscumbia, Alabama.  There was a slight breeze that kept the heat down.  People from all over came to Tuscumbia for the 2019 Muscle Shoals Hot Rod Run.  The Run is a classic car show for young and old.  I have never been to one but Tracey, who is all about classic muscle cars, has been to one.  We saw the announcement for the event on Facebook a couple of weeks ago and decided to attend.

Arriving at Spring Park on this June 1st, we quickly discovered that the park was packed.  Chairs were set up as well as tents to keep people out of the sunlight.  This event took place from 8:00 AM to Noon on Saturday with a meeting the previous night at a local hotel.  We observed that age was not a factor here at the park.  Young as well as old were gazing at the amazing displays of classic muscle cars.  We soon saw that several four legged friends had joined us.  Even the ducks and swans were watching this great event. 

 

Walking around the park, we saw older muscle cars as well as newer ones.  When I was growing up, our muscle cars were Grand Nationals, Hurts Olds, Wolf Body Mustangs, Trans AM GTAs, etc.  I don’t remember anyone in our group having anything older.   Tracey said that when she was growing up it involved El Camions, Mustangs, GTOs, etc.  She was specifically looking for an Olds 442.

There were vendor tables, food stands as well as live music.  The live music was provided by The Cadillac’s, who performed 50-60s style music for all that attended the event.   Tracey estimated that there were probably 1,000 people present.

It took us a couple of hours to see all the attractions.  There was so much to see.  Matter of fact, we went around the park twice just to make sure that we saw everything.  I had a great time at my first car show.  Tracey never did find an Olds 442.  Mark it down on your calendar for the 2020 Muscle Shoals Hot Rod Run.  We will see you there.
