West Allis Auto Show

On the first Sunday of October, the West Allis Downtown Merchants sponsor a car show, which brings a couple of hundred or so classics, muscle cars, and hot rods to Greenfield Avenue between South 70th and South 76th streets, which are blocked off so that people can admire the vehicles from every angle. We like the West Allis show because it is very much a hobbyist’s event, and people are not ashamed to show off their “works in progress,” be they ever so rusty, or showing more Bondo and primer than custom paint. The car owners sit with their machines and a ready to talk with the interested, while a DJ plays classic rock over the city speaker system. This year, it did start to rain, but we managed to glance over the whole show before people began closing the hoods and doors--.
