A new one-day show was introduced this year in St. George, UT at the ultra modern Dixie Center. The Boulevard Dreams Classic Auto Meet featured every type of car and truck from restoration to racecar. As an upscale retirement community St. George, the fastest growing community in America over the last 5-years, has attracted its share of car enthusiasts moving in from the big metro areas. An additional source for high-end cars to enter the show come from Las Vegas, NV 110-miles down the interstate.
Opening the show to the public at noon allowed participants to come in and setup that morning. Ample floor space inside the Dixie Center provided generous display area and air-conditioned comfort for the participants and spectators. Vendors and swap meet sellers setup in the fenced parking area and spectators took advantage of the close-in free parking out front.
Jerry Bowles L.V. Roadsters, Red Hills Rods and Choppers and Everything Skulls were among the vendors supporting this first year show. Entertainment was provided by local musicians including Durty Burt a country group featuring Brian Boatright-drums, Rustin Reber-guitar and Brian Huntsman-bass. Info about the group and their playlist is available at www.myspace.com/durtyburt.
Hourly raffles were held for some fine prizes with the grand prize, a newly built high-performance smallblock Chevy, awarded at 8:30 that evening. Trophies were awarded based on the votes cast by the spectators as they viewed the cars during the show. This first annual show was deemed a success and further info about next years show can be obtained at www.mobilecultureevents.com
