    I have not been there in 6 years or so but it was always a pretty cool show. Lots of people!

    It's a fun show. Lots of people, nice cars, and it's always fun to cruise across the bridge!

    I went many years, but my last time there was in the late 90's, and vowed not to waste my time until I heard it was great again... I am still waiting.
     
  11. Yeah, at least once...I went twice:(

    I started going to this show in the mid 80's and it was awesome.
    All the major custom car guys used to come and Jimmie Vaughan drove his Rivera from Texas one year. Also remember Scott Sullivan driving his Orange 55 Chevy.
    By the mid 90's things started to get out of hand with a lot of drunk rowdies with mullet cars and it drove the nice cars away(including me).
    I have heard that the show is turning back to the better now so I may try it again this year.

    We go about every year but then we live close- maybe 35 miles or so- was always a good show but got pretty wild for a bit and the Police shut down lots of the activities- was a bit down in attendance after that but has come back- swap meet not great- I go and walk the cars- get a bite to eat somewhere- take a few pictures- always some nice cars and a fun day if the weather is nice- beware it's on the water front and it can be windy and cool- take rain gear and warm gear- better to have it than have to buy it-

    I haven't been in years, the last time a drunk threw a beer bottle at me because I wouldn't do a burn out :mad:

    LOTS of people, no care for your property. I enjoyed it better as a spectator than a participant.

    Like others I went for many years but stop going quite a few years ago because the cars that started showing up weren't what I wanted to look at, lots of minitrucks and stuff like that. Also, the hotel prices started getting REALLY outragous with a three might minimum. There are too many other great events nowdays to waste my time and money at the St Ignace event.

    Haven't gone since '10, but I'm thinking of heading up tomorrow. Spent a bit too much time in the vendor's row then, so I'm thinking I'll just skip that altogether and focus on the show.

    We are leaving tonight for the U.P for a little R and R. I had planned on trying to make it over to the car show but now am having second thoughts. It sounds a lot like the downriver cruise...

    If you want to check out the cars, go Saturday morning with your walking shoes. Planned on hitting the show this year with my car but we didn't get it together in time.
