2023 STL Auto Show

Enjoying the 2023 STL Auto Show, from left to right, Eddie, Kaeden, Matt and me. The 1935 Chrysler Airflow, formerly owned by Oliver C. Joseph, is now the pride of Melba and Wayne Noland, who purchased the car two years ago at auction.

This year’s St. Louis Auto Show was bigger and better than ever. It featured more manufacturers, and the “dome” section returned, bringing a test track for electric vehicles from several manufacturers. Also in attendance was master drifting champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his team, tearing up the street and smoking up the air just outside the center.

The Horseless Carriage Club of Missouri was showing members’ special vintage cars. The Chrysler Airflow, subject of this week’s OCC, was proudly displayed by Melba Nolan. Her husband, Wayne, was in attendance as well. Wayne once commented that every time he bought a special car for his collection, Melba had to buy one just to keep up with him. Together they have about 30 cars. Many in the collection are Dodges — Wayne’s favorite marque. They also have a few Moons and assorted others from the early days and one or two cars from the ’70s and ’80s.
