CRESTVIEW — Erica Duenas, 8, stood on tip-toes to peek inside a 1953 Packard Convertible, its grille a tribute to Detroit's post-war affection for chromium.

"It's really pretty," she said after examining the car from several angles.

She and her grandfather, James Ward, were among attendees at Saturday's Spanish Trail Cruisers Club annual Average Joe Car Show, which transformed Main Street to a blast from the past.

Near the Packard, Al and Vanessa Lucido and their sons Sal, 11, and Michael, 14, admired a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

"That's the cleanest engine I ever saw," Al Lucido said.

The sunny, breezy day drew crowds downtown for the car show and the Main Street Crestview Association's Taste of Crestview restaurant crawl. This was the first year organizers combined the two events.
