Show Coverage This Week

With SIXTY+ show articles coming in this week already we are BUSY getting them all online... so be patient as we work hard to get the pictures online as quickly as possible.... That means you should keep checking back every day to see the latest additions.

 Editorial:   We normally don’t “editorialize” here on but our experience at the Syracuse Nationals last weekend just cries out for someone to say something !  We have been exhibiting at this show for 10 yrs, missing only last year.... and have always had a great time. This year, however, we had a different experience. There were lots of cars at the show this year as usual, but the focus of the promoters seemed to us to have changed. 
   The “main attraction” this year was “Batman” and “Kat Woman”... hardly car related celebrities ... and the list of vendors was woefully short of car related products. Less than half of the vendors were related to cars.... one of the vendors commented to us that it looked more like a County Fair venue than a Car Show venue. We were unfortunate enough to have the booth next to “Batman” and that whole end of the building was overflowing with kids in Batman shirts and starstruck groupie types just staring at the “movie stars”.  Not much room left for the car people .... 
   We, and we think most car guys, go to a car show to be among people who share our interests and with whom we can “talk cars” .... if we wanted to go to a county fair or some other general interest gathering where we had nothing in common with other participants we wouldn’t drive hundreds or thousands of miles to do so. We hope that the promoters will return the show in future years to what we all loved about it ..... a car show with “car guy” attractions and car parts vendors instead of the county fair atmosphere. We know they are there to make money .... nothing wrong with that .... but this year the scales tipped just too far for us. .   Our fantastic roving reporters did get lots of pictures of the cars that came from all over to enjoy the weekend .... and we’re working to get them online for you..... we also took some photos to show you what our objections were. So check it out in our car show coverage section.
