Shelton, Nebraska

This is the first car show of the year in my neck of the woods.  I enjoyed the show last year and thought it would be a good way to kick off the car show season again this year.  The show is one of the smallest of the three shows we attend each year but it's only a few miles from the house and we enjoy the fact that it's dedicated to the first trans- continental highway in the United States - the Lincoln Highway.

Maych won "Best in Class" here last year and this year we won "Best Original Pickup".


Fullerton, Nebraska

This is one of the bigger car shows we attend.  We've attended this event the past 3 years and we have never been able to win a first place trophy at this event.  Each year after the show we make a list of things we need to work on that we think kept us from getting first place trophy. 

I guess our diligence finally paid off.  My Grandson and I were really pleased when they announced that Maych was the "Best of Class" winner. 

We always stick around until after all the regular "class" trophies are presented to see who wins the "Best of Show" awards - best Chevy, best paint, best interior, etc.  Imagine our surprise when they announced Maych was this year's  "Best Chevy Truck" winner.  We couldn't believe it.  We had gone from winning nothing 2 years earlier to winning "Best in Class" and "Best in Show" the same year.  Ok, Maych is not technically a Chevy, but we're keeping the trophy anyway.


Grand Island, Nebraska

We usually end the car show season at this show each year.  It's held only a few blocks from my house and it comes toward the end of summer.  Last year Maych took runner up in our class.  The classes here are rather large (1949 - 1990) since they don't have many pickup entries and that makes the competition a little stiffer.  I guess the work we did to Maych when we was trying to get a first place win at Fullerton paid of here also because this year we won first place in our class.
