Super Chevy (anybody been to one lately?)

The last SC I was at was Topeka KS in 1990. I'm curious how they've changed in 17 years.

Anybody been to one lately?

I had planed to go to the one in Bristol, TN but work got in the way. I just hate when that happens.
Next year I will have to plan more in advance. To much work right now to take time off.
25 more years tell retirement. WoooHoooo.

Super Chevy Indy was a shadow of what it used to be. The racing was decent, but the swap meet and vendors left a lot to be desired. The swap meet was more like a flea market than a swap meet. The people at the gate made sure we knew that the tickets were preprinted at $22.00 by the fine folks at super Chevy, and not priced by Raceway Park. I may have gone to my last Super Chevy. The Good Guys are a little pretentious, but they put on a better show, I think.

I have been to the Super Chevy show at the Memphis Motorsports Park every year for the last few. It's worth going to since I live fairly close, but it is a bit of the same thing every time, at least on the car show side. The swap meet at this particular show is really getting big, it's the main reason I go. Lots of regular guys selling plenty of stuff here, and a good amount of cars for sale. I find it a little boring sometimes seeing a lot of the same cars, though. Regarding the racing, I don't watch much (if any) but there is a lot of action on the strip.

It all depends on the location, I guess.

The last one I went to was in 1989 in Memphis mortorsports park. I am not into chevies, bit it was fun for a one time thing.

Most of the bigger shows I have been to lately are sort of dying out. I guess gas prices are hurting a lot of the hotrods.
