2012 Center Line Lions Car Show scores another winner
Special thanks to my buddy, Ray Talley, for always reminding me when the next Lions Car Show will be taking place. And this year has indeed been a bit convoluted, as a few of my family members with some serious health problems have been weighing heavily on my mind and my heart lately. So, it was good to take a short break and get back to my summer routine of seeing the cars once again.
For sure, the Center Line Lions Car Show is usually the first or second of the open-air car shows in my local area surrounding the metro-Detroit area. For the record, Center Line is basically a city within a city; in this case, within the city of Warren, just a few miles south of the GM Tech Center where I used to work.
Having arrived a bit late this year because my house had to be set up for its showing today, I quickly made my way around the cars as the Lion’s Club team was already announcing the trophy winners. I thought it was more important to cover the cars.
It’s amazing how many times I see the same cars, but with slight revisions. Every year, a different set of wheels, a louver here, a new pinstripe there will be featured on the vehicles.
This year, though, the Mopars were in full bloom. In fact, the black Plymouth Road runner owned by Kevin Smith took the show’s top honor. See the photo here and the group photo towards the end of the second video.
