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