I wasted the day yesterday at a local (150 car) show. All the MoPars were in one class. I was the only one w/fins other than Carl Bilter’s '63 gorgeous Imperial that kinda has fins!!
Exceptions were a 57 Ford, a 56 Crown Victoria and the always super rare hard to find 57 Chevys were about it for finned 50's cars. The F took home a 3rd place piece of plastic. The kiddie cars ruled.
One had a huge placard made up to look like a real newspaper story w/several pages touting the RARE BARN FIND hard to find 57 chevy along with photos of the "restoration"
Most sported a raft of shiny aftermarket crap under the hood and elsewhere.
The rest were rods customs etc, etc, and many were really late model newer cars making a large part of the field look like a late model used car lot.
Car shows suck anymore!
