    I gave up trying to figure out why turnout is more or less than expected. Though this year it is probably because people heard I wasn't going to be there (daughter's graduation as well), so they just decided to stay home if I wasn't going to be there, lol! I did end up making it there in the morning.

    I think we had about 100 cars, so below normal given the weather. I know several people who I expected to make it weren't there, maybe they decided to enjoy the weather doing something else instead. Also a couple of other new shows have started up on the same day, they maybe taking a few Buicks away.

    Hopefully 2019 will in the 125+ range!

    I think it was in part because of Denver as some regular faces weren't there and some I know were going that way.
    I thought I heard around 95 and it was a perfect day,which as you say below normal turnout.Used to be 150 plus.
    I saw a whole bunch of first time cars Id never seen before which I saw as a positive.
    So hopefully it was just a off year but I do in the back of my mind wonder if it is a sign of the future for this show.

    Great show as always.
    I think it was the year of the ‘67s. I saw a bunch of GS and Skylarks I hadn’t seen before. Got to meet most owners. Great weather as well.

    Year of the 67's?! Then I really missed out! I'm sure Chris' absence certainly played a role, but you'd think more would show up as, without Chris' cars there, more people would have a chance at a Trophy! LOL

    LOL Doug! I was "Display Only", no need to worry about me winning any trophies!

    There were a lot of really nice 67's there this year, it was great to see them all.

    I figured a bunch of people stayed away because Chris only made a short appearance. He is the only recognized celebrity that regularly attends and with him only going to be there for a short time people decided to not bother!

    Had a great day. Still, just over a 100 Buicks is a blast to see. Made quite some photos...posted those on FB and thought I could link them here; somehow I can't get it done (no computer, only a tablet with me here). Once back home I will retry to upload here.

    A3DC22E2-4178-4585-8F55-952DF6B36F49.jpeg So I’d be in class V Modified post ‘59 because of the Stage 2 hood scoop?

    I am thinking in Class V modified because of more modifications than just the hood scoop. If that was the ONLY one, I am sure you could enter the stock class, I think they allow 2 or 3 modifications.

    Lucas,

    You wouldn't have any fun anyway. Beer garden, Buicks, beer garden, live bands, beer garden, sunshine, beer garden, street fair, beer garden, more Buicks.

    Oh, and did I mention they have beer? :>)
