Run down of the show

Last year they had 278 cars. They announced it was 247 cars this year. For the most part, its a pretty good show and I may go back again. It just seems to be one of those years....where its either going to rain out a show, or...its going to be 98 degrees. Yesterday was one of those days. It just kept getting hotter as the day went on.

Classification 25 (Cars 1988-2001-all)

1997 Pontiac Firebird (3rd)
2001 Prowler (1st)
1999 Mustang GT---me-------(2nd)
1997 Cobra

Apparently I missed something on mine. When I checked out the prowler...I didn't see anything that would have made me worry. That's the way it goes..........

Now in Brand "X"'s category. I was really sweating 3 of the Corvettes and one of the Challengers. Turns out, only one of the three Corvette's that I was worried about even placed and the Challenger that had me worried.....wasn't the one that tied for first.

If it wouldn't have been so hot. I would have walked to town where all of the good events were happening. Maybe next year (if I go again) I'll make it over to the downtown celebration.

As for the other cars at the show. I seen a few of the usual suspects that we all see. But, I seen a lot of cars that I had never seen at shows and a few cars that I had never heard of. This show had the most..."Older Classics" then any show I've attended. One car that comes to mind...was an old "Marlin". Maybe I've lived a sheltered life...but, I never knew any car had been put into production called a "Marlin". That's an example of some other cars at the show.

Here is our 2010 Camaro

Here is our 1999 Mustang GT

This show had great potential for a great day..........D*mn weather!

Not many people at all......Maybe 20 cars showed up. Really hated to see that. They had free "blow up" type stuff for the kids. Jousting ring for the kids. Even had a climbing wall. Great food options (wasn't free of course).

Only three of us showed up with Mustangs. I took 2nd in comparison to a Roush "Black Jack" that took a very well deserved 1st. The only other Mustang was a Roush 427 R and he pulled 3rd.

Brand X got 1st over a '67 Camaro. The '67 was a gear heads dream. Had a big block with an 8-71 blower. For those that don't know......the 8-71 blower is unbelievably huge!

"All-in-all" wasn't a bad day. Just wasn't a great day. The temp was perfect but the occasional drizzle, kept me busy. Brand X also manage to lock my keys in the car after rolling up the windows becasue of ran...big thumbs up on that

I didn't take many pictures today...actually forgot to take any of our cars. But, I did grab a shot of the other two Roush's before we left.

This was the 2nd time I have run into "Bill" the owner of the Black Jack Roush. Fantastic guy. I'm sure if any of you have the pleasure to meet'll agree he is great company. He is an older retired aviation gentlemen.
