1956 International Harvester photographed at Downtown Revival Car Show in Carson City.1956 International Harvester Model S132I photographed this 1956 International Harvester model S132 at the 2022 Downtown Revival Car Show. It is equipped with a 240 Black Diamond (3.9-liter) engine with a 1-barrel Holley that reaches 141 hp @ 300 rpm!

Manufactured in Fort Wayne, Ind. It took Mr. Hollis 19 years (1996 to 2015) to complete this masterful preservation!
The annual Carson City Downtown Revival Car Show, held each July, is one of Carson City's most popular events.

I've added my smartphone photos of this event, numbering more than 600. All are free to download, although I have not edited any. Simple photo-editing software can easily crop them, remove noise, etc.

With the busy Carson Street closed off from East 5th Street to Robinson Street, cars, buses and trucks are parked in front of many of Carson City's most-iconic buildings, including the state Capitol.

There are usually about 400 vehicles entered in the car show, which is filled with many interesting and memorable vehicles.

Local businesses are open and there is plenty to eat and drink, which is great if it's a hot July day. There also is plenty of shade to cool off on the Capitol grounds.

The show is sponsored by Esther Chapter No. 3, Order of the Eastern Star. Proceeds go to the chapter's choice of charity.

If you would like professional photos of your car taken, I have two of the best Nikon cameras in the world and award-winning Nikkor lenses. I also have tripods and lights. Just e-mail me.
