Deep South Imperial Gathering

January 14-17, 2005 

Imperial Home Page -> Events -> Deep South 2005

Special thanks go to Greg McDonnell and Russell Coker for organizing this event and providing delicious food and spirits!

The Broadwater Beach Resort provided the perfect vintage location for this vintage car gathering!  Our group had several rooms reserved in this great hotel with the perfect '50s atmosphere.  The long holiday weekend allowed ample time for plenty of driving behind the wheels of these fine cars, exploring the Bolixi, MS, area and enjoying the Gulf of Mexico.  The weather for the weekend was cool but sunny, just right for a cruise along the beach!

Here are some great shots of some of the cars at the show with their owners!  Russell Coker and Greg McDonnell appear with their '66 Cadillac and '66 Oldsmobile; Mark Harris poses with his '62 Imperial and '59 Lincoln;  and Mark and his sister, Donna, both enjoy these fine vintage cars.


One of many points of interest in the area is the Friendship Oak Tree, shown above.  This enormous live oak tree is more than 500 years old! It is located on the Gulf Park Campus of the University of Southern Mississippi.
