Shots from the show...

Went to one of the last local shows of the season Sunday.....hard to categorize the Tempest so i put it in "muscle car" not there to win but i like seeing what others are doing. It's also nice to know that something i threw together in my garage over a winter can sit next to some of these rides and not look out of place. I did end up winning free lunch at a local diner (covered the 20.00 registration and then i won the 50/50 raffle for 176.00. they sold the ticket by an arm lengthfinger to finger....i told her i wanted my armlength think i got 6'4" worth of tickets and it was one of the last three that won....

Sweet rides and congrats! The next two months is car show season here, it's just starting, woo hoo..
They had a Superbird, too sweet!
Congrats on the award and 50/50 always helps!
Did they have a beer tent? Thats a northern thing, don't have them here in the deep south, but should!
OH, your car looks great.. Are you sick of hearing that yet? Hell no..
Your car is really fine and can hold it's own anywhere, you did good, results are probably better than you thought..

Burning rubber since 1982!!

Thanks Walt.....I really dug the Harley pickup....may keep my eye out for an old GMC stepside to drop the spare 455 in. That superbird was original and used as a pace car for a year at Bristol i believe. mostly Mopars there only Pontiacs were me the burgundy Goat and a 67'firebird.

That's the perk of living up north, and near detroit, bunch of guys that built cars, know cars and have had them forever.. And stored them in the winter, hopefully. WI shows are more fun than FL shows..

yep Jet, and with the limited season we take them out and drive them every chance we get....in the summer there is a major cruise almost every weekend now, all the communities have embraced it as a way to bring some business in. Our economy here is and has always been driven by the automobile... i live in a pretty rural suburb and the local ice cream parlor gets 120 cars every week on a thursday night for their show.

My car has been in the garage since may, except around the block.. Now, there's 6 show in the next couple months within 300 miles. Wish we had local cruises, but we don't.. Not willing to change temps for shows, so I'll stay here. Southern FL is way better.

can't blame ya...., wishin i woulda got out when the getting was good. Winters are for repairs and modifications....LOL. The car loves the 60 degree temp in the morning though. And i find at the shows the ladies like the blue.....say its a "pretty car"...LOL. And also get the line from "my cousin Vinnie" about the Pontiac Tempset alot. what i really get a kick out of is parking it at the store and never fails i will watch someone walk out and just stop....walk over to and around the car...and yes it came out better than i could have hoped a year ago, Recieved it on the car hauler Sept. 10 of last year....

I live in Indiana and I think the best car show we have in the state is this weekend. It's the James Dean car show in his Fairmount, which is Dean's hometown, and I have been a few times and it's a total blast. They have a huge led sled following and always some great rat rods and of course plenty of muscle cars. I don't think I came close to seeing them all last year.
