The June 4 St. Wendel Grillin n’ Chillin’ Car Show featured amazing examples of cars that have defined the automotive landscape. American flags adorn this beautiful Ford Model A. Ford introduced the Model A 95 years ago, in 1927. 


Just a few yards away from the Model A, this Corvette C8 represents the latest and greatest in American performance technology. Introduced in 2020, this eighth-generation Corvette is built in Bowling Green, Kentucky.


This custom hot rod was parked only a few steps away from the Model A and the Corvette. It represents dreams of all those who have taken stock vehicles and turned them into one-off classics.
