A Refreshing Look Back: Beatersville Car & Bike Show | Louisville, KY
In regards to the cars themselves, you would be hard-pressed to find a wider array of styles in the same genre and period. Some are rusted while some have perfect, brand new paint. Others are open wheel and static with aired out coupes right beside them tucking all sorts of white walled tires. It’s a pleasure to see such heart and soul put into each of these rods when we are so used to seeing fads permeate shows and create a mess of clones that take away from the overall personal feel of the scene.
What makes Beatersville so great is that it is a departure from the ordinary or commonplace. You could go to 50 shows in a year and not find one quite like this. How often do you go to a show and enjoy seeing so much rust? Needless to say, whether you’re showing or attending Beatersville, you’re guaranteed to have a good time. And if you find yourself around Louisville, Kentucky in late May, make sure to put this event on your calendar as a must attend….
