2007 Anniston Fall Gathering
September 22-24, 2007
The weather for this fall's Anniston Packard and Imperial Gathering was fantastic, with plenty of shade under the trees providing the perfect background for a gathering of vintage cars and fine folks. Several cars that were new to the event made an appearance at this meet, much to the delight of all who attended.
Special thanks go to Donald Taccone for organizing this event and providing delicious food and spirits!

For some of us, the "show" started before we even got to Anniston! As Elijah and Nicole drove from our home near Ringgold, GA, to Anniston, we spotted some vintage Mopars along the way.
|First was this 1955 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe, which we noticed along route 27 in Summerville, GA. Sadly, it had seen better days, but spotting the car was still a fun side trip.|
|Next, we found this 1948 Chrysler Windsor near Piedmont, AL. What were the chances of spotting two Windsors in one day??? This was a neat old car, right down to the dice on the door locks and the valve stems. Finding these cars sure made the trip even more fun!|
