More From The Loafer’s Car Club Show: Dodge Dart GT, Mustangs, and Imports

With 300 cars at the show it’s no surprise I have a lot of material to post. I’m sure you guys won’t mind if I continue to do so. The weather for the show was great; as were the cars. In this piece we’ll take a look at a few convertibles like the sweet Dodge Dart pictured below, and a little something we don’t feature very often: the Nissan 350z. Also included are a few Fords, and a Shelby.

There’s something here for everyone to help you get through your Monday.

Shelby Mustangs are hugely popular, and for good reason. They look great, handle well, and have plenty of go. It’s no surprise we¬†stumble¬†across them regularly at the shows.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget there was a time when the Mustang wasn’t a muscle car. It had rather humble beginnings, in fact. Here’s an immaculate example of one before it grew in size and gained muscles. The blue and white combo looks sweet.

If I may, here is a little more Mopar from the show. The Plymouth Satellite is a nice ride when put back to original. It’s often forgotten about when people look back at this era of American motoring history but it’s easy to see why it’s becoming more and more popular.

The 350z follows a long lineage of sports cars. While it was popular when released some 10 years ago, it was often denigrated for being over-weight and under-powered. Still, it makes for a fun car to drive and sounds good as far as imports go. I’m pretty sure this convertible version has some aftermarket graphics on it, although admittedly I have not kept up as well as I should on the option list for Z cars.

It’s often said that SUV’s began with the Ford Bronco, but I have to disagree. While maybe not a traditional SUV this is certainly a much cooler alternative.

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, except it has to be one of the classiest looking cars I’ve ever seen. What a cool hot rod.

Above, we took a look at an early Mustang. Here now we see the result of the muscle car era on the Mustang. clearly bigger, more muscular, and ready to go racing.

I will have plenty more from the show later in the week, as well as a few feature cars. In the mean time be sure to check out part one from the Loafer’s Show if you missed it.
