The Ebenezer Baptist Church in Woodbridge, VA has put on a show every year for seven years and we had a good time when we attended last year so we decided to go back this year. We met at Mike’s Diner in Stafford, VA for breakfast then cruised to the show in Woodbridge. We arrived right on time and was able to get the same parking place as last year and we set up camp and settled in for a day of looking at and talking about cars. The day was hot but not like last year and there was always a breeze which helped. The restrooms are inside the Church activity section. Some of the Church members were having a product sale going on inside and some of the stuff for sale was food.. ..To be precise-----COOKIES! Now most of our friends know how I feel about cookies, especially since they are one of the 7 major food groups. I like to be mindful of my daily consumption of cookies.. ..Just to stay healthy! Grin Anyway the Princess knows that Ron also likes to make sure he has his RDA of cookies too, so she bought all the oatmeal cookies they had for sale! I’m glad Ron doesn’t like spotted owl or something; I bet that would get real expensive! The Princess also bought me some cookies so I wouldn’t get anemic or anything. Hehehee.
The Prince William Cruisers assists the members of the church with this show so they were there in force. Many of the people we had seen the night before, we got to see again! There was a very high percentage of Corvettes in mix of the 96 registered entrants. The blue one with much customizing is really cool and the red ‘60 was special to me. The rat rod tub that brought touch up paint looked like fun. There was a new Camaro, Challenger and Mustang.. ..Fun isn’t dead in Detroit yet! The LaFrance fire truck I saw the night before came in and I have a video of it on u-tube. The vehicle is amazing, the noisy engine has to be heard. The Fredericksburg Classic & Muscle Car Club was well represented as was Stafford Classics. DJ Ron was there with his orange roadster. It’s his “road car” since he can’t drive his Camaro on the street anymore! Something about low bridge clearance? Richard brought his beautiful ’60 Chevy out and the green ’55 of his friend was very cool too, I have never seen a ’55 painted that color. We also found a T-Bucket with more brass than JV has on his, looks like fun to take care of? Dan proved once again that he needs further door prize selection training, The Princess and Ramona will work on that at the next show. And Dan was also reminded about the condition of his ’55.. ..something about a Speedo and seat belts? You have to ask him! About 3:00 the awards were given out; Ron, Dan and the Princess won a Top award. I have decided to not participate in award competition anymore. I will register to support the charity but I don’t want my car to be judged. I just want to enjoy the day and take my pictures and leave the competition for awards to others. The Princess, however, has made it quite clear that she expects something for rubbing on them cars all week (not) and for just showing up! I think she is getting a little crazy but hey, she is the Princess! And we only have four more months in the season to hear ME ME ME ME! We packed up and left for the Foster’s cruise in S. Stafford.
