I Think the show was great for a first year show! The people were very nice!  I was there  Sat. from 8 till 1 . I have been in the hobby for 30 years. I'm sure you guys put in a lot of hard work. I don't know why in all that time I couldn't find the food vendors?  Signs were sparse ,and hand made. Vendors were complaining of poor sales.  I'm sure next year will be better.........DON

First show is always the hardest so congratulations to everyone involved for what was accomplished and a toast for continued future growth.  Billy, I as many want your club/group/team to be sucessfull since its good for the hobby and great for all of us that are in reasonable driving distance especially when I for one want to have our car legend judged when completed.  With that I was disappointed in reading your message that stated for now the same date for next year. IMHO if you keep the same date it forces a lot of people to make a decision on which show to attend, Carlisle or Frederick, vs. the joy of taking in both. And that decision (which one do I attend) impacts vendors, show cars, and all facets of the hobby.

Don,
I didn't mean to get so defensive about the food.We wanted to make sure there was a variety and the lines weren't too long.There was an area right in the middle of the showfield near our registration tent where the fair grounds have  power and water set up where most of them are during the fair.That's where they all were and not scattered around the grounds.
The subject of the date is tough.We sure didn't do it to make it a competition and make people choose, but well...... that is the date of the Camaro Nationals and that is what we are putting on. Camaro Enthusiasts plan their vacations every year on that weekend and many can't change it to another.I know it would be tough for me. The ACA was putting on the Camaro Nationals before Carlisle piggybacked the GM Nationals with our event. It's unfortunate we couldn't work w/ them any longer but that is just the reality of it.

I went Saturday (6 hr drive each way) and had a great time.  Everyone I talked to was friendly, down to earth, talked about Camaro's, their car, etc., etc..... super great folks!!! I made some new friends and met some I haven't seen in years... Some highlights I saw among the many;  a super rare documented 69 Z28 X11 code and a 69 L48 survivor car, .... so many beautiful Camaro's I filled the digital camera disc... The area is a very nice area and I sure hope to be back next year. Nothing but good things to say and a big thank you to all who worked hard to make it happen.

Can you tell us who the L48 belongs to? Was it white & does the owners first name begin w/S?

Thanx...for some reason I thought it was Steve's. I just found out today he hasn't driven the car for several months. By any chance are there pics of John's L48 on line?

That 69 RS/SS of John's is a neat piece. Very original, and has some unusual options. That is the first HD 3-spd with a console I have ever seen in a 69. I took lots of pictures of this car...........RatPack.............
Just keep livin......L I V I N .............

That was the first time I was able to take any cars to Camaro Nationals. It was great for me because I live 20 miles from Frederick. I had a great time, saw some really cool cars and met some great people. It would be nice to figure out how to attract more of the "high end", cars though. I understand Jerry M became ill during the whole event so we missed his participation. I hope he's doing ok. I look forward to doing it again next year.

Hi Marty, I can send you some pics of it if you want.

John.

Thanks John! It isn't very often you get to see an L48 in its birthday suit! Let me know if you received my email address.

Speaking of birthday suit...thanks Billy :o

Marty Don't you think those pics are too much for your 50+ year old heart? You should have skipped them. ;D
