Saturday, we spent most of the day at Tri-Power Automotive in Libertyville, Illinois at their Open House and Full Size Pontiac show. The weather was sunny and cool, and everyone had a great time & the parking lot was packed!
Some of our members traveled to the show together, like Ken and Mike K. with their ’67 and ’69 convertibles.
Special thanks to Tri-Power Owner, Jon Markese shown here with club president, Ken Pitcher.
There was plenty of food and good times at this Open House.
Member’s Chet, Mike, Scott and Moe learning about Scott’s two GTO’s, inclubing a complete concourse restoration Tri-Power is doing on this 1970 Black Ram Air IV Judge.
A closer look at the Ram Air IV engine. Look at the level of detail – this car will be perfect when it is finished.
This show was dedicated to Full Size Pontiacs like these two georgeous Bonnevilles. The Gold one is a 2 plus 2 with the very rare option of power side vent windows!
There were also several Grand Prix’s on display, like this immaculate silver-blue car.
A total of 13 Midwest Firebirds members were able to attend the show on Saturday, bringing out 9 first generation Firebirds. As the show wound down, we were able to put these 8 side by side for an impressive line-up.
