And the cars some with great stories!
"This car has been owned by Nelson family since it was new. Ric and his sister both drove it during college in the late 60s, early 70s. The car is in original (unrestored) condition. It looks fine and drives very well."
Ric Nelson, owner, Chevy Corvair 110 Convertible
"This car was bought by my father and handed down to me. I will have two sons at the show to celebrate Fathers Day with their Grandfather's car."
Terry Richards, owner, 1937 Buick Businessman's Coupe
"I'm 76 years old. I have received one marriage proposal in this car. Yes I'm still single, no I did not accept."
Stan Stinson, Sr., owner, 1960 Chevy Impala SS Bubble Top
"This was my dream car for over 45 years."
Patrick Clark, owner, 1966 Shelby Cobra
"This car is owned by a third, soon to be a fourth generation. A three year frame off restoration has been completed. It's bringing back fond 'ole school' memories."
Gerald Prestel, owner, 1965 Chevy C10
Because parking for participants of the Downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show is first come first serve, we can't tell you exactly where to find these storied cars and their owners. But they'll be here, along with dozens of others, each with a great Idaho history story to tell!
