The Real Steel Car & Bike Show in East Berlin, Pennsylvania

Eric & I arrive at Real Steel
Car & Bike Show at 9:30 am.

Eric and I discussed the safety of going to a Car Show at this time.  We decided to arrive early and view cars along the edges of the event.

The 4th Annual Show is
at Distelfink Drive-In.

Maskless visitors watch cars and motorcycles arrive.  We put on our masks.

The owner of this 1948 2 door
Ford Sedan provided information
about the entry.

Without information on the vehicles provided by owners, I turn to the internet to identify car models and production years.

I recommend you watch Clint Eastwood's 2008 film,  Gran Torino.  The main character, Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood), owns a 1972 Gran Torino Sport.

The owner of this 1955 Pontiac
Star Chief has the year, make &

bench seat.

I am fascinated by the "eyebrow"
above the headlight.

Does it light up?

The owner has a Custom
License Plate to identify
its year.

I used the License Plate to

I slowly walk around it to
take in its details.

This Italian American hybrid is carefully crafted and, I assume, is a joy to drive.

This modified 1931 2 door
Ford Coupe is getting lots
of attention.

People like to inspect the details of this modified car.

He's comparing it to the 1972 Coronet he owned in 1978.  Eric's Coronet had 4 doors, different grill, and smoother body lines.  

The crowd is building and we decide that it's time to leave.  Eric and I enjoyed our half-hour tour in one small section at Real Steel Car and Bike Show.  It offered a large variety of cars and a truck for us to admire. 

****UPDATE: Real Steel Car Show hosted 365 Cars and Trucks, 115 more than their previous Show and the organizers had to turn some vehicle owners away.  This caused a flurry of disgruntled posts that were moderated on their Facebook Page.

Eric & our motorhome after
we've settled in.

It doesn't look like it now,
but rain is coming.

We have a 50 amp electric service, with good voltage, along with water and sewer hookups.

The heavy rain has arrived.

A giant puddle covers
the road.

The power went out about 9:30 pm
& I took this photo from our RV.

Our solar-powered batteries keep
the lights on in our motorhome
while we wait for the
 power to return.

The outage lasted about two hours.  Tomorrow we'll explore our new neighborhood.
