Some Photos From The 2018 Lime Rock Historic Festival

Once again I was lucky enough to be the guest of Bob Melhado, the Chief Steward at the Lime Rock Historic Festival.  This festival is held every Labor Day weekend at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut.  It really is a special weekend.  As no racing is allowed on Sunday at Lime Rock, Sunday has a great car show all around the race track.  I can’t recommend it enough.  I have included some of the pictures of the cars that I saw today.  It was spectacular!

The featured marque this year was Bugatti.  There were dozens of Bugatti.  Possibly this was the largest gathering of Bugatti cars ever on the east coast of the USA.

  1. Steve, Do you happen to recall who was the owner of the ’65 A110? Just wondering… Walt

    Thanks for sharing. Excellent photos. All too often at car chows, the cars are so packed together that it is hard to get an unobstructed shot. BTW, what camera and lenses did you use?

    • Hi Mike,
      Nothing special – a Canon Rebel T3 with a 18 – 55 lens. I am semi looking for a similar lens but with a bigger aperture. I agree that many times the cars are parked to close to each other or there can be some other kind of car show paraphernalia in the way. Also a problem can frequently be other spectators looking at the car. I just have to be patient or move on to another car and then return to the target car in a few minutes.
