With this in mind, our Top 10 favorites of the Zephyrhills Auto Event contains show cars, auction cars, Corral Cars, and a few very unique items we discovered while making our way through the show. Here are the Top 10 favorites from the Zephyrhills Auto Events. A vintage,two-horse power, Briggs and Stratton, Florida snow blower. This beautiful, jade green metallic and chrome snow blower is the handy work of the guys at Custom Plating Specialists in Brillion, Wisconsin.

Next on our list; we found a rat in the Car Corral.

This really cool Plymouth half-ton pickup truck came from local enthusiasts, John Garcia of Tampa. John was quick to point out the chopped top and suicide doors as well as the headers that were intentionally installed backwards.

The truck sits on a Chevy S chassis and is powered with a ci Chevrolet coupled to a GM R4 automatic transmission. The bed is hand-fabricated and John explained the large wind up key in the side of the bed, is really not functional.

One of two in existence today, this four-door, five-passenger, Fisher-bodied car is considered extremely rare. Factory installed adjustable rear shock absorbers; radio and heater were considered as accessories.

Today, the price is considerably higher, well above seven figures. This very pretty dark green, Ford five-window coupe caught our attention as we roamed through the Car Corral early on Saturday morning. Mike Doyle, from Fort Myers Beach, made the four-hour drive to Zephyrhills to be a part of the event. The leather interior, rumble seat, hood louvers, and detailed pinstripping, set this rod apart from the rest.

The brakes are upgraded to duel piston discs on all four wheels, and the horse power is provided by a ci GM naturally-aspirated crate motor with a standard GM TH automatic transmission. The interior was exceptionally neat and clean; the leather buckets, VDO gauge package, custom wood grain steering wheel, power windows — all in all, just a beautiful ride.

This beautifully restored, all original, Ford Fairlane resides in the garage of Frank Dawson, from just down the road in Tampa. The ci V8 Ford is original to the car as well as the four-speed manual transmission.

Anyone old enough to remember going to the drive-in to catch the latest Elvis movie, or parking down by the river with your best girl to watch the submarine races, will totally understand why this car made our list.

Lot number S caught our eye.

A very different looking, Chevrolet pickup truck. The simple Raspberry paint job with purple accents was very pleasing to the eye.

Zephyrhills Auto Events Classic Car Auction | Zephyrhills Autorama

This full-blown custom was mostly Corvette under the sheetmetal with a LT1 hp engine and a R4 transmission. He said more than 20, people are expected to mill around the grounds over the three days, from diehard car lovers to to families just out for a fun event.

Garland said although Florida is a hotbed for hot rod shows, the fall Autofest is different because of "multiple points of entertainment" set up around the cars on display and up for auction.

It will be Carlisle's third Lakeland fall show since purchasing the Autofest in It was held in Zephyrhills until Cars are auctioned by their owners.

Garland said the car shows basically has two cultures of ownership: It doesn't matter whether it's someone's classic that also happens to be their daily driver or a classic that is only transported to events via a trailer.

At the show, both cars set side by side. Along with his wife, Charlotte, Self said they enjoy the Lakeland car show because there is so much more than just cars. AutoFest offers helicopter and airplane rides, a morning flyover as part of the national anthem, an air stunt show and appearances by Patty Wagstaff, World Aerobatic Champion; Gene McNeely, AeroShell Aerobatic Team member; and other stunt pilots.

Additional fun for families will include a wildlife show and the chance to visit the Florida Air Museum. The reason I like it is also for the swap meet, their air shows.
