Good show, but not worth $25.

Well worth $25.00 to see these beautiful cars, This is a major fundraiser for charity.

It's a great event and for a good cause. This year won't be as hot with a forcasted cool 71 deg for Sunday.

Great pictures Rich, I think you can see my car in one of them.

You have to think of the $25 going to charity.

The same old Ferraris, Porsches, and Mercedes. Boring.

I went - this show was nice. Perhaps if you go every year it is boring. But for us it was good fun.

Please- more muscle cars, hot rods and roadsters! Cars that the average joe can relate to. I'm tired of the old dudes cars too. More motorcycles too!
