Car Show at Big E Showcasing Old Greatness

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – For the first time ever, the Good Guys East Coast Nationals Car Show made a stop in Western Massachusetts to the ‘Big E.’

There are 1,500 cars on display at the show.  All different colors, models and makes from hot rods to classic cars.  But all of them are from 1972 or earlier.

“They really appeal to people,” said John Drummond the spokesperson for Good Guys Car Shows. “It was a time in American history when things were much simpler. Everyone can relate to an old car, everyone has a memory in an old car.”

Many of the cars are made of steel and have carburetors so Drummond says a walk through the show is almost like a history lesson about car parts.

The show lasts all weekend.  Saturday 8-5 and Sunday 8-3.  You can get your tickets there for $15.
