Hard to believe that a gasser with no door panels and no carpet takes a best in show.
Any car that has no registration, no license plate, is not legal to drive on state roadways,
has no exhaust, should not be best in show. No interior, what about all the cars that spent
10 thousand or more for there interiors? You make an exception for no interior?

A show this size that has a huge area designated for trailer parking, should have a class or classes
specifically for these trailer queen's. For some reason these judges look at the chrome and paint and
forget that these cars do not drive to the shows, get road grime and bugs, let alone the stone chips
from driving. They roll them out of there trailers and don't have to spend the hour or two prepping
the car.

I've stated before that I would gladly travel for a judged show. I put on 140 miles for a 1 minute
judge job. The judge never made it to the back of the car.

Count me out for next year.

Specific Comments (optional)

Parking Location
Numerous rodent holes and droppings in different areas
Class Organization
Combined an already tough class 55-57 chevy to 55-64 chevy
Trophies & Prizes
Need more classes for 1275 cars
Food
The usual
Entertainment
Same music palyed numerous time during the day
Judging
My car was looked at for less than a minute.
As an artist going to this show, it can be hit or miss as to whether I get any work. Today was good, but in any case I always enjoy this show. I sent Lori scurrying to the swap area and she never disappoints. She found me another model kit for the collection. This show has everything. From a 1930 DeVaux to Amphicars to Streetrods and stock restored and even modern cars. Lori liked her hamburger but my hotdog was bleeeeaaaach, I couldn't finish it. As to the DJ, Mr Palmer knows his cars and interesting trivia bits about them. He's not too annoying, even though he talked a lot but I think that at that show being so big, he has to keep everyone updated about stuff. But please, bring more music, I heard the same basic play list six times throughout the day...and leave the folk music home. Over a thousand cars.

Parking Location
Showed the HHR Panel, so parking was on the show grounds.
Class Organization
It's OK
Trophies & Prizes
Beautiful hand made steering wheel design trophies with clocks in the center. Door prizes only for the preregistered.
Food
Typical BBQ grilled car show food...nastiest hot dog I ever ate.
Entertainment
3D Sound actually wasn't too annoying today, Dave does the best work. I did here the "lookie here", though a few times.
Judging
erm, I wasn't concerned about the judging, but I did think one car was better than the one they picked in a particular class
Dash Plaque
Nice one
Variety of Cars
As always, you see everything there
Bathrooms
Poop huts everywhere.
Weather
A perfect day except at the very end.
Trophy Presentation Timing
On time and went by fairly quick
Entry Fee
$10 for day of show...about standard
This was my first time attending this show, and overall for the size its very nice. In the stock hi-performance cars, I saw the judges only judge two cars in this class. There were some upset people who brought there complaints to the attention of the show staff, and they must have made an impact as I saw the judges come out later and during the awards give 7 trophies in that class.

3D Sound was there with Dave P. at the helm, and he did an awesome job. He know's how to keep the ball rolling!

This show is a great way to end the summer season, I'll definately be back again next year!!!
