    WOW!!!!!! ---
    WHAT an effort by the club ,'Curtis, and the entire track staff What a GREAT EVENT!!! I can't say enough good things about it Lots of improvements from last year--still the most friendly staff in the car business--track staff performed out of their minds good mopping up mess after mess with true pro spirit--we ran the dragster right after a full track oil down and it ran like it was at INDY they were awesome!!!!! Guess parking issues were the biggest challenge for everyone--but.....the Geargoyles did the very best job possible with such a giant crowd--my hats off to everyone involved--best car show ever---The VIBE at SIM is unmatched and that is a reflection on the entire club and the fine folks at Union Dragway!
    One I will always remember the fans streamed through our pits all day with sky high support and kind words--it was an honor to help entertain that crowd--we made three great runs Sat--pulled the chute on each one to add to the show--turned the GUTS out of my engine in the water aiming to be as loud as possible
    Thank you!!!!

    Absolutely, the Geargoyles have gotten this event down to a science for organization, and operation, and they deserve a huge thank you from all participants and spectators. Even the crowd of spectators wandering amonst the vendor's row setups was much more considerate of the racers who also used the road on return from runs That was a much bigger problem when I was last here in '14.

    I agree this is one of the best events in the South and maybe most anywhere else!! Easy in and out if you get there early. Good people at all the posts doing their jobs efficiently and effectively. It is just over and I already am ready for next year!

    And my little A Roadster got some press up above in the photos.
     
  11. What they said X2 !!

    Curtis - who was the Event Photo company next to the BBQ shack? (Don't tell Tombo I'm looking around :D )
     
  12. Great to see you...and thanks for the help with the power supply!!

    Can you get Carl to shoot me a pic or 2 of his helmet?

  14. Holy crap what a weekend! The experience started before ever leaving the house. Got to see a lot of friends and spend some quality time with my Assorted Nuts family. Thanks to the SFCC for letting me join in your evening festivities. Congrats to circusbear for getting his never been driven car to the show and not giving up. And most of all GREAT JOB Geargoyles. You know how to do a show. Hope we can all do it again next year.

    Great show. It is the best car show on the east coast. Thanks to all the clubs that help to put on the show. I will be back next year. Keep up the good works.

    I can't believe how busy I have been since getting home Sunday night, so this is the first time I have been on the HAMB since wrapping up the show. Many thanks goes out to the Junkyard Saints, Hooligans and Assorted Nuts car clubs for their help at Steel In Motion. We couldn't have done it without them. Even with them, we were running very low on staffing for a show that has grown so fast, so next year will bring many changes in staffing for the show. Reading through all the comments makes the Geargoyles CC and myself extremely proud. We are very fortunate and thankful that we have so many great people attend the show. You guys make life easier on such a challenging weekend. Thanks for everything, Curtis and all the Geargoyles.
     
  20. Can we ban the golf carts and hover-rounds and bring back the minis? Ha.
    Of course I have the same problem with them at Charlotte Auto Fair and every other car show it seems.
    Just walk slow and drink a beer.

    I like walking around and checking out all the cars, people, crazy shit that goes on...

    I like smokey burn-outs...

    I really friggin' like it when my ol' pal Handsome Dave (Dirty Old Man) at 70-something years old, gets out there and thrashes the shit out of his nice roadster...

    [​IMG]

    I like the fact the South East Gassers bring friends along to help out (when I'm sure they have better things to do than hang out with us hooligans)...

    [​IMG]

    It's nice when the locals come out to watch...

    We have way too much fun. Can't wait for next year.

    Much respect to everyone involved. Thanks.

    Great pics Andrew, was great to see you again, and no doubt the best event yet for me! And I hope I'm still thrashing on BGII when I'm in my 80s.
    But I gotta fine tune things a bit more, because I've got a wild man with a little grey coupe gunning for me now! And 2 more Sock Fuckers who have the same thoughts.
    Gonna make things interesting come Oct. 29 @ RWYB! And who knows what, when and where before then:)
