Some like sleek and fast. Others prefer big and wide. Jim Biebrach has found himself drawn more and more to the “big, wide-bodied cars.” Biebrach bought his 1958 Pontiac Star Chief to last weekend’s Indian Uprising all-Pontiac car show in St. Charles.
The eighth annual Race and Performance Expo rolled back into town last weekend, hosted at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles. Visitors were treated to dozens of vendors showcasing the latest in speed and performance parts and technology.
Chevy Camaros from all five generations covered the grassy grounds of the Volo Auto Museum today, parked on display for the third annual Camaro Car show.

The World of Wheels car show is a Chicago-area event that truly lives up to its name.

We found plenty of hot vehicles parked at the 2014 Custom Rides Car Show and Expo earlier this month at the Tinley Park […]
One show-stopping vehicle parked near the entrance to the show was this ultra high performance 1938 Chevrolet pickup, owned by Larry and Connie Massengill.
