You guys have a lot of very cool stuff!
Nice to meet you!
Hey I want to thank all of the guys that brought traditional cars down to the show. I think we have a nice group of cars in the Deluxe area. I have had alot of great comments on our area. Also thanks to Joe Haska (Greybeard promotions) for giving us a big corner space at the show.
That big corner is my favorite part of the show. Lots of great rides all over the place but I spent the most time with the oldies. Thanks.
Great show today! Met some new friends and ran into some old ones. Allot better quality this year.
I wish I could have made it. But, I'm up here in Anacortes, Wa. settling my little brothers estate. 42 years of cars and parts to take care of. We are bringing a 46 Plymouth business coupe back with us. Rare for Washington, very little rust. Stored indoors for the last 40 years.
It's been a great show so far. I finally had a chance to meet a few of you - thanks for stopping by my booth! I'll be posting up photos during the week after the show. The traditional hot rod group is nothing short of amazing! Best part of the show by far. There's a ton of history in that group, I just wish I had more time sneak away to check them out in more detail. One day left!
Lots more coming - I just need to get out of the show long enough to work on them a bit an post them up.
Let me know if you have anything special that your looking for.

What a great show!!! Thanks greybeard productions and all that brought their cars out!!
I enjoyed seeing deluxe's rides to, absolutely spot on!!
Did anyone see the econoline pickup? It has a sbc and they had valve covers made that said ford.
I got quite the kick about that one.
Maybe that will be the new trend
That was a great show. I spent most of my time in the Deluxe corner. The period type cars were just amazing! Amazing variety of cars and lots of good people. Thanks for a great day everyone.
Great show once again. Amazing craftmanship all around. Absolutely looking forward to next year.

Great pics Mike et al. I went this year, but hardly shot anything. I was a little worn out from TG to say the least
Great coverage - really some outstanding cars.
We went down to the show on sat night. The delux corner was really cool I really liked the way it was set up and allot of cool cars. I have to say that I was disappointed in the show overall. This was the first year that I have been to it since it was at the last location in the convention center so that is all I have to compare it to. It seems there were far less cars there than was at the other location. I did however like the traditional section allot better. I tried to talk my boss into having a booth there for the shop that I work for but the price for a spot apparently was not worth the price to him. My boss purchased a booth there the first year at the new location and said that it was allot more expensive than they were at the other location and he got less than half the space and on top of that the place was dead and didn't end up getting any business out of it so now he wont even go to the show period. I know it is a lot nicer venue and i am sure its allot more expensive to use compared to the convention center witch makes vendor spot prices go up. Its just disappointing. Not that anyone cares but that's my 2 cents.
Thanx for the photo show... sure saves on air fare! Gary
Thanks for sharing the photos with us. Great shots and it looks like a great show. thanks again.
Erickson - I know what you mean about the show. The current location in the Colorado Convention Center takes it upscale a few notches when compared with the previous location at the National Western complex. The old location is really falling apart and had cars scattered all over the place - cool if you have all day to take it in, but not so cool if you find you missed stuff that was hidden away. The new location is really pricey and they don't miss a beat, charging extra for every little thing possible, which unfortunately the promoter has to pass along to the vendors. I miss having the arena space downstairs at the previous location with all of the club cars and home built stuff. It was also kind of odd looking at showroom fresh new cars - just didn't seem to fit in. This year's show attendance seemed pretty light compared with the last few years. Hopefully it will improve in the future.
All - Thanks for the comments on the pics, much appreciated. If anyone is wondering where everyone is in my shots - they brought me in before the show was open to the public and I had 2 hours to shoot everything I could. Pretty fun until the lights turned off halfway through the allotted time. Still have hunderds of shots to go through. If there is anything you're looking for just let me know.
