Over all there is not that much to tell about the show but sure had fun. Both Jetfires and the engine were for sure the buzz of the show. I had people coming to me saying that these cars are all they heard about all day till they got to my area to look themselves. I did not leave the cars much at all myself. I did have a guy looking pretty hard at the 63, not sure if he will follow through and buy it or not, will just have to wait and see.

Ryan Evans from Counting Cars in Vegas was looking at the cars when I showed up Sunday morning. He was there before the show was open to the public, I am sure to avoid the crowds trying to get pictures and autographs. I just pretended to not know who he was and said hello. He did not stick around so did not have a conversation with him.

Sure was fun getting to talk to people curious about how the system worked. I was even encouraged with the younger generation and their questions. There were a couple occasions where a “millennial” would be really wanting details about the system and some of them could understand most of what I was saying, lol. The funniest part is that most of them know what the modern “Snow System” of fluid injection is and thought it was something new. I just laughed and said that Oldsmobile was doing tuner cars long before it was cool…

Looking forward to going to another large show sometime.
