    More Pics

    Here's a pic or two from the show. Help me out folks is it kosher to put magnets from previous shows on your metal dash as in the picture, or better to hide them on the inside of your trunk lid?

    71GS455 Best Package Wins!


    How could that be!?

    First, I don't do car shows...
    Second, I don't have any money...
    Third, wouldn't I have received something to take home with me in exchange???

    It just doesn't add up!

    Maybe something small, and with hi-torque, will show up attached to the bottom passenger side of my motor once it's assembled. :Brow:

    Steve you should try doing shows. sometimes they are better than racing.

    There was a hot looking 66? blue vert down at the Hot rod sunday show today & the guy was asking me why I wasnt at the Buick show (took the buick out to the hot rod sunday show) He knew most of you guys I didnt get his name though

    I grew up going to car shows and the negativeness from them made me realize I'd rather see a not "right" car run at the track than a concours resto car roll out of a trailer.

    I can appreciate a nice car, but I'd rather appreciate it running down the track. I spend a few minutes looking at them, then automatically think that I wish I could see it run.

    My father was the show chairman for several years of the Classic Chev Club (55-57). I spent every show hearing everything that was "wrong" with some of the most beautiful cars you'd ever seen. Then there'd be all the political issues, such as "X is good friends with a couple of the judges," or "Y's car just got finished at the shop that is sponsoring the show," or "they didn't park me with the rest of my class, I'm sitting out here with cars not even in my group," etc... It just turned me off to the whole thing and the switch doesn't appear to ever be coming on again. I've never seen someone lose a drag (bracket) race because of politics, sponsors, or where they pit.

    I enjoy talking with the people, especially those that I haven't seen as a result of only making a couple of passes in the last several years. But I'd rather see them at the track. It's a character flaw that I've learned to live with.

    Thats why I have given up going to shows to win trophies. Dan & I dont care if we win or not. If we win hey thats great, If not hey we had a good day hanging out with people we like & meeting new people. We dont go to the HIGH point shows or the big buck shows (well we go to one & that is HAN)

    There are some issues with racing to. I mean I get tired of hearing how bad a track treats the racers & how some racers feel that they should get everything. Dont let me get in to the teams either :rant:.

    Dan & I decided to take the year off & we get yelled at not by members of our own team which understand but by other teams.

    So see there is some on both sides of the coin there. Yes there are always people who think they are better than you, If you dont let it bother you & you do your own thing then things are kewl.
