A car show, indoors, in Texas, in the summer, is a good thing!

The Annual “Yellow Rose Classic” Ford show is presented at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, TX. This year’s event is going to be held on July 9 & 10, 2016.
The two-day event is held indoors (thankfully). With 105 degree temps blistering the asphalt outside, the ice cold A/C inside really helps bring the crowds in. That’s not to take anything away from the spectacular Fords and Mercs on display; they do a pretty good job of pulling in the spectators all by themselves!
This show is not massive (in the way that Carlisle is), but there has to be at least 150 or so cars that are all drop dead gorgeous. You won’t find any “under construction” or swap meet style vehicles here. The Yellow Rose Classic offers nothing but the finest FoMoCo iron from the Lone Star State. All in a huge, well-lit, air conditioned venue. What could be better?
This ’66 Fairlane wagon, the “Coughin’ Coffin”, is a tribute to the 1944 WWII Marauder bomber and her crew. Read more about the Coughin’ Coffin here: http://blog.macsautoparts.com/1966-fairlane-wagon/
