    Hey, I'll be there with my '48 International. I just got the email saying I'll be in the downstairs ballroom. Is that the Old Skool room?

    I lived in Olean NY, now live in Colorado .I went to the show in Buffalo 1974 . I think it was called the Clutch artiest show. Man it was a great show then. Is this a different Show these days ? We here in Denver lost our big indoor show so enjoy what you have .

    Since the 50s it was the Clutch Artist Autorama. This was the hay day of indoor shows.Was at the Maston Armory, and then the Convention Center.I remember it when I was a kid.The show had some hard times and it was then discontinued.It had a couple year run under a different promotor and then went dormant for a couple years. Please chime in anyone and correct my facts.Present day it is in its 5th year I think,new guys at the helm and is doing very well.We started the Open Wheel Room 4 years ago and that is dedicated to the glory days of hot rodding. The original guys got all the big names and cars from that era.They all did the circuit and traveled all over the country showing their cars. I promise we will not let things slip away any time soon!!!
