    That's ScaryLarry's 32, the guy that puts the show together.

    Do a search and you'll find plenty of previous year photos. There's another thread going now about the show too.

    Here are a few photos from previous shows that I have handy. Also Piero has some good Jalopy Showdown coverage in one of the Mad Fabricators videos if you want a real preview.

    I asked in the other thread but I don't think I got a response, does anybody know the show schedule for Saturday? I don't see one on the website.

    A show schedule would be way to organized for me. Show up early and we'll keep you busy all day! Heres a sample schedule for you
    Get there early
    walk the swap meet
    check out the museum (before you forget)
    look at cars
    eat lunch
    ride the rocket (dont be too cool to ride the rocket, it is worth it!!)
    smush you thumb at the metal shaping area...then watch the real guys work
    take your car around the track
    watch the bands
    HAMB meet & greet (post will be later)
    watch other people throw some mud on the track
    and at the end of the day, stop by and watchme drop over!
    ride home safe
    This aint no lawn chair show baby!

    Good, I don't even own a lawn chair. Is there a gate time, or just whenever? Is the track open all day long? I'll only be watching, unless you want to see my wife's olds alero doing laps.

    Man, this sounds like my kind of show!! Love the no schedule and just roll with it part! Just show up, have fun, do all kinds of stuff including watching or being in some real action and go home happy. How the heck could it get better than that. I wish I could be there. Almost makes me want to go back and "visit" the folks in MD for an excuse, but.....ah, maybe next year.

    As soon as you said grow up... you eliminated any possibility of that ever happening. That's the key.
