However, I do know some folks who think 100 cars is too big. One of the local shows (Langley Days) goes about 2,000 to maybe 3,000 cars and a lotta guys don't go because its too big.

Different strokes......
The Fairgrounds encompasses 320 acres of which approximately half gets covered with cars during this event. Yes, it IS big and requires a LOT of walking to take it all in in one day. If a person were to split it in half and take 2 days, it's not so bad. Also, many of the national vendors are here for the 3 days and you can see their products and talk with factory reps. Unfortunately, they don't offer much in the way of "show discounts" because they don't want to undermine their distributors....

In contrast, Car Craft Nationals that will be in the same venue next month only gets 5-6,000 cars and only rents about a third of the property for it.
