Over 1,000 cars rolled into the heart of Springfield’s historic downtown on September 25-27, 2015 for a weekend of competitions, prizes and family fun. These are a few of my favorite shots from the day. There was so much to see and do, and so many beautiful cars!

The Marbold Farmstead was the hub of the Marbold family, which consisted of over 4,000 acres. It was self-sufficient, with several barns, dairy, chicken house, smoke house, ice house, boiler house and pump house. The original house, called Elmwood, was build in 1850 by John Marbold, a German immigrant and prominent Greenview farmer and businessman. In its day, Elmwood was one of central Illinois' most notable homes.
I was lucky enough to attend the 3rd Annual Marbold Antique Show, held on the farmstead. I also was able to sweet talk myself a private tour, to some of the not-yet-renovated, closed to the public areas. I was escorted by an association member.
