Hmmmm......a lot has been said and the opinions vary, the differences we see at the shows can be positive. The variety of cars shows a timeline of trends over the years. I think the average car people gravitate to what they identify with and possibly are comfortable with. There was a time when a red street rod with grey tweed interior was the crowd pleaser, billet got popular and so on and so on. The key is the trends. Even now with the "gasser" craze you are seeing sort of cookie cutter gassers, ok what I mean is the trends can saturate and become old. One thing tried and true are the original restored cars, they are absolute and depict history. I personally am a gasser nut but I appreciate all cars and their owners, I enjoy talking to those who are really passionate about their car, not on an egotistical level but just happy they did their car to their level and budget. Trophy shows and judging is not my thing. Hey the great thing is we all have a choice, we can seek out a selective show or hang out somewhere else. For me there is nothing better than a bunch of buddies hanging out at dusk at our garages, half dirty from wrenching, talking builds, ideas, and some home made food planning our next move. Change is ievitable and the diversity of the cars is here to stay, above all enjoy the time as it is, all of our days are numbered.
