Party Pixs: The Eighth Annual East Passyunk Car Show and Street Festival 2013

The eighth annual East Passyunk Car Show and Street Festival was a great success on Sunday, July 28 despite the dire weather predictions.

A record crowd came out to enjoy the sites and the sounds of one of
America’s favorite streets and check out the more than 140 cars, trucks
and
motorcycles, the dozens of food trucks, restaurants and the magnificent
craft show.

With a keen sense of the timing of the weather, the East Passyunk team kicked the event off an hour earlier at 11AM.
LaTyra Noland and Dash Sears were selling lots of fun East Passyunk gear

Leon Manchester named his car after his ex-wife’s favorite saying. Everytime he would go work on the car, she’d say, whatever’. She wasn’t forever.
