Weather looks great! High in the upper 70's with a very slight chance of T-storms and very sunny.
Well, once again, I missed out on doing something I was really looking forward to. :ball:
I hope someone will update us and post some pics.
Went great! Better than I ever expected. Kids stayed busy with hay rides, paddle boat and inflatable slide. HP junkies lined up and watched the dyno run almost 20 cars on the day. Fire dept. sold all their food and made plenty of money. Had 2 local business owners offer to sponser for the next show. Little less than 200 cars and many spectators when I didn't really expect half that! For a first year event it was awesome and I didn't hear one complaint! Everyone was happy and saying they would spread the word to make it the biggest car event in our area for the future. Great to hear several older car owners say it was the greatest show/cruise they had ever attended in 30 years plus! And more than 10 people have begged us to have it 2 times per year. They want a fall event too when all the leaves turn.
But, one down side. Only one other Buick showed up other than our own. As usual I can't get Buick owners out for events. In your behalf Dwayne, you had a long drive so I understand. However there are Buick owners close to me that just don't travel.
On a good note. Since I also collect old Toyota Supras I invited several online Supra owners to attend. Several of them made it and I saved a place at the entrance for us all to park together. One owner drove up from Atlanta and all of them will be back. They already are pushing for flyers to start handing out in their areas.
Have a few pics to post but left my camera up in North Carolina and it will be a few days until I get back up there.
I'm glad it went so well for you John! I knew it would be good! Wasn't the drive that kept me away. Life always has a different idea of what I need to do that usually doesn't coincide with what I want to do.
