We decided to attend this show on Saturday as we were gong to Beloit on Sunday and this one was on the way. We arrived fairly early and
were greeted by show organizers and other participants. For a small show the selection and quality of cars were nice. Show seemed well organized and club did a decent job of running the show. With over 100 cars in attendance and only one judge, I thought he did an incredible job. Incidently I was parked next to the 58 Pontiac Boneville which was awarded with the best of show. I have checked out this car before, and it is really nice. It got my pick for BEST OF SHOW.

I believe there is some discrepancies in the other postings as I received a plaque for "BEST GM" for my blue and white 55 BelAir HT.

I do agree with other postings that it is hard for older cars to compete with recently manufactured vehicles. Event organizers need
to address this with classes for the new stuff. It is not the judges fault, he calls them as he see's them, and they usually are super clean.

Gladly pay $10 for a judged show
I would like to thank all the participants that made it to the Cars in the Park. It will be better next year with music and possible attractions. I would like to comment on the winners or the Best of's we had. I will list the winning vehicles: Best of Show: 1958 Pontiac Bonneville, Best Ford: 2007 Mustang Roush 427, Best Mopar: 2004 Dodge Viper, Best GM: 1968 Olds Cutlass Convertible, Best Pontiac: 1968 Firebird. Yes we did have 2 newer cars win but these cars were very high quality. We are not biased towards older cars but are for all cars regardless of the money spent. Next year we will have more classes aimed at the increasing number of cars newer than 1986. This will not eliminate the possibility of a new car winning Best of Show but will help the '86 and newer crowd break away from the older cars. We are all car people, please don't let politics get in the way. Every car that attends is a winner for the Dane County Food Pantries whom we contribute too.

Sincerely,
Sheldon
President God's Country Pontiac

Overall a nice local show. I think this new location is much better than previously because of the grass and also it is a nice, easy drive over to Waunakee. I look forward to this show next year and will be back again!

Nicely growing show with excellent new location. All staff were polite and helpful, the food was good, and everything moved smoothly on time. Hopefully there will be more spectators and entrants next year and the organizers will follow through with the addition of entertainment and an sudio system. Overall a great day and I plan to be back next year.
