After watching hours of Fast n’ Loud on TV, I was interested in seeing what regular folks were doing with old car restoration and customization.  So it was that I headed over, once again, to the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, this time for the Carolina Collector Auto Fest (and swap-meet.)  Following are some of the cars that caught my eye.
