I drove up from the Bowling Green, KY area to see the 1935 Miller-Ford that was in the survivors area.

There were a few other neat cars scattered about the show. Some W-T-F's, but overall, not a bad way to spend a Sunday. Definitely not the Detroit Autorama.

i went, actually had a pretty good time.i could see where if someone came looking for all the high dollar cars they were used to seeing,they would have been dissapointed.i actually liked seeing a lot of those cars in the survivor display that have not seen the light of day for many years.most of them had the history written with them.it was definitley different.i ended up spending more time there than usual.

What is your problem with TRAILER QUEENS??? Don't like nice cars??

People go to car shows to see nice looking and inovative vehicles....I hate looking at junk, it doesn't belong in a car show, same for stock vehicles, keep them on the street.

Anyway, you were right, the show deffinitly had a down home feel...not the quality they should be showing...but I knew that going in, many with there TRAILER QUEENS are staying home.....

The sectiion you refeer to was nice, and I like it a lot....They are not the steer junk I was refeering to, these cars have a history and are exciting to look at. I talked to many vendors and they were really not doing much business...a 10'x 10' section cost $500.00 and a 10'x30' spot was $1300.00. There wan't anyone there that could ever hope to recover there fees. In all I seen some 30-35 cars that looked like they realy belonged in a show like that, the rest was simply want a bees, and street junk.

had a nice long conversation with the owner of the 33 willys that little john buttera did the chassis on.the man said he spent 27 years working on that car.lived in california for many years and was friends with a lot of the icons of the industry.grew up with, and was friends with joe hrudka of mr gasket. he now lives in the cleveland area.
spent too much time in the koi area too.a lot of manufacturer reps were there and had a lot of specific information on paint and paint tool products.3-m reps also,paint gun reps.i don't think koi did too bad.

I know what you mean, I spent almost $400.00 on a bunch of 3-M sanding supplies, but they were really priced right. The KOI guy's were tripping all over themselves with the purchase, I still don't know how many hats, micro fiber cloths and so on they threw in the deal. There wasn't to many spending this time around.

Don't get your panties in a bunch last time i looked we lived in the USA and i am allowed to have my opinion i can appreciate the work that goes into it and the skill it takes to build one but most of them never even get driven to me that is no better then finding one sitting in a field and asking to buy it and they say no and when you ask if they are going to restore it or rod it one day and they still say no kind of a waste to me cars are meant to be driven not just to show i just would rather go to a cruise in at a local parking lot then to go somewhere that most the cars a trailered in so can we all just hug and make up now LOL!!!

Well it is the middle of winter and its and an indoor car whouldnt you expect them to be trailered I mean would you want to walk though slop and salt inside the building we have to do that out side at least here in the northeast we do besides there are plenty of drivers at most outdoor shows and a lot of times the trailered cars dont even come out of the trailer because of rain or dust in the summer

Oops, that might be hard to read, I forgot to use any puncuation or make sentences. Sorry

That'll be 20 lashes, George. I believe Mikey is in charge of the punishment detail this week.

Your right, I don't recall any RAT ROD driving to the show. And when I went, I didn't find any parts lying around on the ground or streets, from them passing.

Well if you think im into rat rods you would be wrong also i just don't happen to like trailer queens im sorry if that offends you in some way but thats my opinion you don't have to agree with it. All i said was i didn't go for that reason.

Well this is the Lounge after all so I'm gonna kick my shoes off and prop my feet up on the coffee table. On second thought, I'm leaving my shoes on!

jaslong & yknot,

You guys got to loosen up a little. Most any car can be appreciated for something, even though it might not be to your taste. I went to the boston WOW and was glad I did. A little bit of everything.

Take this rat trap for example, I don't like it at all, but they did something intersting for a rear bumper:





Now this car is a trailer queen unless he can show me a quater mile slip (notice the HEMI 1000 tire engraving). But it did have an awesome tube frame.





I wouldn't expect this car to be driven in snow to a car show:

No...Don't get this wrong, there are absolutely no hard feelings here, I just like jousting a little with others.....It's all in fun. I can appreciate any vehicle, from Sand Rails to Rat Rods, they all have a common thread, and each has a Engine, so all's good with me. I know some like certain things and that's fine, were all really car people at heart, so no harm no foul.

No hard feelings here either nothing wrong with a spirited debate thats part of what makes this country so great all the different opinions think how boring it would be if we all agreed on everything.I don't expect people to get their toys out and drive them in the snow and salt covered roads here in Ohio i was just talking about cars that never see the road even on nice sunny warm days i went to a show a couple of years ago and there was a car there with gold plated rotors what the heck is that good for but to each their own just because i don't like something don't mean i am going to tell somebody they shouldn't build it the way they want to and if i can ever figure out how to post pics on here i will post a pic of my 53 Ford to prove i don't like rat rods.
