    This is about the only time my daughter wants to ride in any of my old cars. LOL She asked me this week what we are going to drive this year and I told her probably the truck. Her comment was, "Yes."

    Was that the white sedan? Kool car if it was. I found your Stude sittin in the dark by it self. Did not know where the rest of your group was. Never found your brothers car either. Glad he made it back.

    It was a big show this year. I think there was over 600 cars there.

    Just after any auto related event in Freeport, they tell you its the last one, then list a lot of reasons why. This one was # 26, I believe, and each one was the last one. It has survived date changes, unfriendly mayors and police cheifs, and was canceled once because of storms, but its still going. Once the # of people that were there, spending the amount of money they spent is figured out, there will be another one next year. Figure 600+ cars at mim $5 each of which at least 300 paid $10 to park in the lots at a show that was paid for by businesses, then add in the food purchased, and the tickets bought for the kids things, I promise it will be back again next year.
