From the prospective of Car Show Source

 

This review will be fairly short and sweet since it was the first time that Toby and I participated from the perspective of a spectator rather than a participant. The drive from Gallatin, TN to Springfield, TN was quite pleasant.  Even though it was cold outside, we were nice and warm watching the colorful fall leaves dance around the side of the road as we took the scenic route, HWY 25, to the show rather than following our Garmin GPS’s advice and taking I65 South to Briley Parkway and then looping back up. We arrived at the show around 11:00 am. There were quite a few cars there, which was surprising.  We didn’t even know about this show until Friday night when Toby and my brother, Randal had attended the Friday Night Cruise-In at Indian Lake Cinemas.  We had already made plans to be somewhere else today.  This show was actually our first stop on the way to the Music City Camaro Club’s Fall Brawl at the Music City Raceway.

When we arrived, we saw a 2005 windveil blue Mustang GT that was the twin to our 2006 windveil blue Mustang GT.  It was a one-owner in immaculate condition.  We have been seeing lots of windveils lately in the area.  This is really strange because this color was only put on the Mustang in 2005, 2006, and 2007.  Most of the time, the cars are v-6s, so it was a treat to see a fellow V-8, 4.6 liter at this show.

Parked beside it was a car show regular, Semekia, in her 2011 Mustang Roush. There was actually a pretty good Mustang turn out at this show.  Brent was there, a member of www.SVTgarage.com, in his 427 Mustang Roush.  Leonard was there in his decked out black Mustang Cobra. There were a few more late models and some early model Mustangs, as well as Corvettes and Camaros.  Additionally, many other fine examples of American muscle cars graced the parking lot on this cool, October day.

We perused the cars for a few minutes to see what the turnout was.  In all, almost 50 cars had shown up to the Coopertown Middle School to support their program.

As with most car shows there were a few vendors, 50/50, t-shirts, and food.  We actually won a drawing today.   I always buy the 50/50 tickets and never win.  Today, while I was taking pictures, I saw a group of kids huddled around my husband. He bought $2.00 in tickets.  With just two tickets in hand, we ended up winning a $50.00 door prize.  In the end, we donated the $50.00 prize back to the athletics club. We had planned on donating money that we would have paid for the registration fee anyway, so this was a win-win for the car show and us.

Because this was school-sponsored fundraiser, there were also many spectators and lots of middle and high school-aged students hanging around enjoying the day.

Unlike most car shows, this one started their awards around 12:30 even though they had scheduled awards for 2:00 pm.  This was a nice treat. We like hanging out at the shows, but when the weather is chilly, it makes for a long day.  Since the organizers of the event chose the winners, there wasn’t a long judging process, which required adding up points or even a need to count votes from spectators or participants.  With only six awards to be given out, it went rather quickly.

This event seemed to be a good show if you want to get together with some friends, hang out for the day, and support a good cause – the team getting new uniforms.  There were only a handful of classes that were not revealed until awards were given out.  This left everyone speculating on who would win what….

 

The grounds were nice and clean.  The facilities were also nice and close by – no port-a-potties. At the end of the day, all of the food was half price.  The show didn’t feel the need to wane on as some do. I liked being able to leave early and head on to our next destination – the Music City Camaro Club’s Fall Brawl Drag Race and Car Show.
