Haven't been to this one for a while and I decided to go and perhaps sell some of my art. Although the flier said 80 and older, I drove in and gave it a shot. My 2007 HHR Panel was let in and I saw a bunch of other cars a lot newer than mine. Since the HHR is a truck, I got a shady spot near the center of everything. I was within spitting distance of the DJ, so sound issues are not a problem for me. I don't see why they don't provide a cherry picker like they do for 3D Sound. That is an excellent way to get sound out and not worry about what people do to speakers out of the DJs vision. Food is nasty with a capitol N-A-S-TEE. I was smelling some good grille smells but obviously it wasn't coming from the food vendors near me. Kent's Big bars are good, but you can't eat ice cream only. Saw some friends I ain't seen in a while and even though I made no money, I really enjoyed the day. The featured model was Impala and there was a nice selection of them to see. One lonely 61 Biscayne was amongst them to give one some perspective of the difference. My faves were the 65 Marlin, stock Vega, the two Subaru 360s in the corral, the diesel powered 48 Chevy pickup, 59 Imperial, Pacer, MGB, Spitfire, Fiat 850, a black and green El Camino, 63 Buick hearse, 68 Wildcat.

Specific Comments (optional)

Parking Location
Plenty of it, whether you use the fairground lots or the many home owners offering yard space
Class Organization
Signs point to spot you go to but I seen a lot of mix-matched parking
Trophies & Prizes
None given...nice.
Food
Blechhh
Entertainment
DJ Donny Kasper. Doesn't flap his mouth.
Judging
None
Dash Plaque
Got one, pic of Impala on it....featured car
Variety of Cars
Everything from Subaru 360s to a very nice 59 Imperial
Bathrooms
At the buildings, Didn't need it
Weather
Partly sunny, cool, windy. Cold and clouds moved in near the end of the afternoon, rain
Trophy Presentation Timing
None
Entry Fee
Cheap, 6 per person in car
The number of cars for sale seemed to be down a bit. The far lot that typically has +75 cars in it was basically empty (maybe more are spending their 50 bucks on an Ebay ad....).

Plenty of junk for sale and a few new national vendors were there too.

Weather
nice temps
Entry Fee
6 bucks
The weather was nice for a change. Cars galore. Did not go to swap. Surprised at the amount of new cars on the show grounds but they are ok too. They really need better chow.Food is the big weakness at the show. BBQ sucks, Hot dogs suck burgers are gross. Thank goodness for Kents Big Bars. If you have not tried one you're missing something great.
