    Did I see this years price cut in half from last years ? Does this mean the folks that got "RIPPED" last year get in for free this year?

    We have been going to the Hoedown since the very first one down on Spring Garden Street. The Professor does an amazing job at putting this show together. The price this year is less, but as usual the entertainment is well worth this years or last years price of entry to the show. Most people that complain about the price are those who do not stay for the great entertainment in the evening. Believe me it is well worth it.How much does it cost for 2 people to go to the movies???? Denise

    We don't go there to drink either. We go there to have fun, to see friends and different cars that you will not see in a parking lot show. The show is not advertised as JUST a car show. Maybe this is not the venue for you and I can understand that. That is why there are apples and oranges. Everyone likes different things. I like having fun.

    Thanks everybody for the positive comments about the show. The Professor did adjust his pricing this year and if you pre registered for $25.00 for both days ( car and 2 adults). We go to all the shows in the area and all over the US. My post was not placed on the board for a debate, it was just posted to let other like minded people who want to have a great time. If you don't want to go, that's fine. For all those who wouldn't miss it....See you all there, watching the cars, people and listening to great bands and of course the Burlesque Show at night!

    A friend of mine went on Fri and was told the cost (for him and the car) was $40 for the day, so he parked outside , and paid the spectator admission........

    Yes, that is true, Wheels of time did not this year have 1 day passes. We went up on Saturday and they wanted $40.00 for 1 day. We parked outside and walked in as spectators $8.00 per person.

    I was pre regerested this year and paid the 40 for all 3 days I know last year they had a daily thing I think at different prices for each day. That show has changed over the years.
    I enjoyed your show last year but it is billed as a car show plus yet I got to park next to an almost new Honda. I just think it drifted away from the car theam and upp in price. Two years ago I though it was great with the mueasum .
    Maybe I come again after I cool down from the butt job from last year. I did read on other posts last year I wasn't the only one unhappy with the fee. Like someone said then if you want to run a concert event block that off and charge extra for that and leave the car guys to do whatever

    Was thinking of going.. Driving from Pittburgh till I read your Rules?? No "Easter Egg" cars.. Ya.. mine has a 90s paint job on it and cant afford to re-paint!! So I guess this makes it less than a Hard Core Hot Rod because of the paint and a few billet items!! WOW!! Narrow minded!! I drive my car all over!! Imagine that!!!!

    Don't worry, it wouldn't have been worth the ride unless your into rat rods and Bimbo Bettys.

    I heard that too they are getting hard up for $$ since car attendance is down about 800 for years back.

    I really resent your comment....

    All the cars are not "rat rods" and The girls that go are not "Bimbo's"....Because I am not a Bimbo!
    Yes, there are Traditional rods that come, and what you might consider rat rods, but these are all cars that people drive and have fun with and are proud of, just like the guys who have cars with expensive paint and billet and are there too. We don't have a "rat rod" and we go all the time.

    Maybe before commenting on a show that you have not gone too it would be better to see if for yourself, since you live right in Langhorne. Then your comments would be truly your own opinion, " not what you have heard ". You might actually have a great time.

    This is not a parking lot show with cars that people keep tucked away in their garages, dont drive long distances and just want a shiney trophy....

    Finally if you dislike these kind of events, don't go.

    Please don't take it personal....

    You are right, not all of the cars there are rat rods, but this show is slowly going in that direction. I never said all of the girls are Bimbo's but there is quite a few.

    As far as the rat rods go, Lest just say I'm not a big fan. If the builders of these cars are looking for attention then build a car that's well engineered and people will notice, it doesn't have to be shiny. but building a car with barbed wire and rusty street signs and anything they can find for the "wow" factor is just stupid.

    I have gone to the Hoedown for close to 12 years maybe more so my comments are from first hand experience. When I posted my comment it was for the guy that was thinking about making the drive from Pittsburgh, I simply told him that I didn't think it was worth the drive and why. He was turned off by the rule no "Easter egg cars" imagine that, a show promoter turning away cars because they have a shiny paint job. The professor thinks of himself as the mad daddy of ratrod/kool car shows, its right there in black and white on his website. Its just the direction his shows have been going over the years.

    Wow, I think that was the longest post that I ever typed, I guess I just needed to explain myself.

    Thanks for your explanation... :)

    All that I can say at this point is that there are tons of shows out there for everyone. Go to the one's you like and have a great time, we only live once.

    I try to go to all the shows like the Hoedown and I started a social group which I believe you are part of Traditional/Rockabilly car shows PA & NJ Area.

    For all those going....I am sure we will have a great time.

    Don't get me wrong its still a decent show its just not what used to be, and definitely not worth the drive from Pittsburgh.

    You never know, I may even show up.
