    Perfect little custom in progress and an easy pick for me... Owned by a guy that I don't know, but admire a great deal now - Jake Christmas.

    Where's the ropes around the show cars?

    Neat place, and neater cars. That would be quite a long trip for me, so thanks for the nice pics.
     
  4. @Ryan How bad is the car?

    Man, I'd love to go to that show. The cars and backdrop look amazing. Great photos, just what I needed for some Monday morning motivation!

  7. Looks like you had a great time, well, except for that damn deer. Glad it wasn't any worse. They can do some very serious damage.

    I have been to a lot of unique gatherings of all things mechanical over the years, but this gathering there in that magnificent old arena, is indeed something that is very unique.

    No problem with weather, only so much room for a select group of cars, good placement of the cars, good lighting, no bad angles for photography, ample seating, excellent location in relation to food and music, and it appears to be very well organized and not widely advertised !

    It reminds me of how the seating is in the old RYMIN auditorium where the original Grand Ole Opry used to be broadcast from back in the day.

    To have that round up in that building, is like a huge jewel case that you can just sit back and look at great creations and automotive history.

    Most impressive that the organizers and the administrators of the auditorium are both on the same page to allow such a gathering with out a lot of red tape and hassle. That is rare in today's world of insurance and liability considerations.

    For those that were in attendance, consider yourself fortunate to have been there, and thanks to Ryan for posting this. And thanks to all of the car owners that attended.

    I got really lucky. Essentially, I got what looks like a rock chip with a bit of a dent out of the deal. Some inner fender damage as well, but I got that mostly fixed this morning.

  12. Glad the damage wasn't worse. The Bayou Roundup always looks like a great show. I wish more car shows would take the Kontinentals lead with how to put on a show.

    It looks like there were three dozen cars in the arena. Was that the whole show, with some music outside?

    Here's a few of mine. Like @Ryan says, this show is special... it's as much friends, food, and music as it is a car event.

    I think there were another 100 or so cars outside? Like I said, I spent most of my time in the stands drinking beer and people watching. I was on vacation technically, so I didn't get out a ton!

    If I ever resurrected the Asphalt Invitational, I'd want it to look just like this show...

  26. Its really a cool show, 2nd time going, my 36 was suppose to go but she didn't cooperate and stayed home, fuel related issues. I have over 200 pics on my facebook account and will post some in my original thread in the events section here soon.

    Thanks to the Kontinentals for putting on this show, you guys rocked it.

    Well said and well described. We drove 1800 miles round trip and we had a blast. I put a thread up with my pictures already. Good times!

    Great photos & blog. I've been living in Lafayette for the past 39 years, & it's always good to see this happening. I had to miss it this year since my son was getting married Sat. Most of Fri. was spent moving & setting stuff up.
    It has basically been feeling like summer over here up until Thurs., so all who attended got to experience some great weather that doesn't happen all that often.
    I'd like to have a model car display there one year. Not necessarily a contest, but a display similar to Santa Maria. But true custom & hot rod model builders are about as rare as hen's teeth over here, so who knows how that would all pan out.

    Thanks again to all who posted the great photos.
    Steve
