Sunday, October second was the annual "Classic Car Show," which takes place along Greenfield Avenue in West Allis between S. 70th and S. 76th Street. This was a nice day for it, and there was a very good turnout. As distinct from the Milwaukee Masterpiece show, which is heavy on antiques, classics, and restorations, the West Allis show is much more of a "hot rod" show, with emphasis on American cars, "street rods" and customs. It's great fun to walk along the street and reminisce about cars that our parents, relatives, or neighbors had, the cars we would have liked to have had, or the ones we would STILL like to have. It's free, and local charities and West Allis merchants vend food, one of the radio stations plays music, and the West Allis Police D.A.R.E. program has a booth, all of which make it a very nice community event.
