Cars of Summer Car Photos

Cars of Summer is a huge car show held every Fourth of July weekend in Worcester, Massachusetts. The setting for the show is the 480-acre Green Hill Park that features ponds, rolling hills, a golf course, and a zoo. See the 2016 winner’s list below.

The current show management team took over in 2013. That team’s attention to detail, friendliness, and organization impressed us from the first time we contacted them to the moment we arrived at the park. There’s a virtual army of volunteers that make this show work.

The car show goes to great lengths to put on a good show for the entire family. Cars of Summer is not just a car show. Other activities this year included bounce houses, food trucks, a petting zoo, an auction, concerts, costumed characters, a flea market, knockerball (inflatable balls that you crawl inside of to play a soccer like game), paintball, a kid’s zone, monster truck rides and a Saturday night cruise through downtown Worcester.

Some of our favorite cars this year were the yellow 1954 Ford Truck, Mike’s green and white 47 Ford Truck, the showstopping, modern and odd design of the creamy butter yellow 1954 Kaiser Darrin, and the 1940’s Jupiter Fire Department Ambulance. We also loved the sleek black McLaren 570S, the red convertible GTO, the purple streetrod, and the 1929 Ford Model A Woody Station Wagon with a pull-out canopy and camping rig.

We only had a few hours to check out the show this year on one day. We’re looking forward to going back next year and spending a lot more time there. This show is an outstanding event in a great location with lots of friendly and knowledgeable people.

We have endeavored to correctly identify all of our cars and trucks for this article and for the photo galleries. If we have made a mistake, please write us and let us know. We want to correctly tag all of these masterpieces of car design and automotive history. You can help us and your fellow readers by helping us get things right.
