Two Old Rides attended one of the biggest car shows in Washington - The Snohomish Classic Car Show. The show drew over 700 cars and 1000's of spectators. It started out a little tough as it took an hour in line just to get into the city, Several cars overheated - not a pretty sight. But once we were parked everything went very well.
The crowd was a very "car friendly" crowd. In other words they were knowledgible, respectful of the cars and super friendly. We had a blast walking for what seemed to be miles. The diversity of cars, people and businesses was amazing in Snohomish. We really had a blast and ate way too much! (But it was so tasty!)
Voting for all categories was done by the participants. I would hate to have been one counting all those votes! But with the competition so tough, we sat back and clapped enthusiatically for all the deserving winners. Then a name that sounded like mine was called. People that know me were like "That's you! Go up and get your award, man!"
I am proud to say that the Eldorado won 3rd place in the stock 54 to 63 stock class.
The show was a blast and we will be attending next year - but getting there much earlier than 7:30am as to avoid the lines.
