No kidding on the crowded part. I went once. It was kinda neat to see that many cars at once. I won't go back because it's so crowded. I usually pass on the car show/rod run things. I got railed into it by a couple of customers and went with them. They loved it and I was miserable. I like driving my car, not sitting and watching the temp. needle go up and up and up. I started shutting it off for a few minutes at a time in traffic so it wouldn't overheat. Notice I said "in traffic". That's how slow it is most of the time. Open roads or the back yard for me, I ain't much for crowds.
