One last bump before we hit the road! It seems nobody wants to pull the trigger on this, so let's go with John's suggestion: Meet-N-Greet at 12:45 at the Chrisman Brothers Coupe. Anyone? Bueller?

Works for me.

Hot Rod Hucksters play at 11:30. That might be the earliest we've ever played I think, aside from radio stuff.

We hope to be on the road in 2 hours! I guess the 3 hrs I spent washing and wiping the Lincoln isn't going to matter, it is raining here right now! I hope everyone remebered their "long johns", it looks like it is going to be a chilly one tonight and tomorrow!!! I packed my gloves, "long johns", a hat, a few hoodies, and even switched out the plain ol' rum for Captain Morgan's spiced rum, fall must be here!!!

As long as the Minnesotans keep their snow up there, we will be fine. Pour in the antifreeze I guess.

the show was great. with any first time event there are some things that need work for next year. the two things i saw were not enough food vendors and traffic issues when leaving. i found some great buys in the swap meet and the bands were also great. the car count was higher than i expected. the car quality was also high. i will for sure be back next year. thanks to all the volunteers that helped put this great event on.

Another home run for Mr. Wells! Great show! I'm sure it will explode next year.
Only way to improve it would be separate exits for spectators and participants, and at-least one building with heat! After walking around for 8 1/2 hrs. I'm glad my car has a heater.

I saw this at the show today. I've never seen one that looked this nice.
Am I correct that this is a Lincoln Flathead V12?

Great show, me and my dad both had a good time. For the 1st year i was surprised at the number of cars. Alot of high quality cars. We'll definitely be back for the next one.
