Everything from a Drive-In Movie to the RAZORBACKS, DJ GUP and Doo Wop groups singing 5 part harmony in the hotel ballroom in the afternoon and oldies concerts at night featuring name groups with hit records from the ‘50’s and the ‘60’s. Take a journey back to a time of greased hair, big cars with tail fins, the jitterbug and twist, vintage rock ‘n roll and experience the good old days again.
On display was the "Metal of Honor" is a custom designed 1932 Ford Roadster which is on a 4,500-mile tour of duty to national car shows and events and later auctioned at 2012 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz to raise awareness and money for the issues facing families of slain and disabled soldiers, specifically education scholarships for their children. Wearing a new layer of digital camouflage, this patriotic tribute also features custom pin striping, unique ‘Metal of Honor’ badging, ammo box storage, and seat belts from a vintage World War II airplane.
