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
