    We attended this one in 2017, were told then as they were passing out flyers at another car show we were at, ALL the BEAN SOUP YOU CAN EAT.
    Well that statement was not true, I like salt Kare gets in my case all the time about my use of a salt shaker. that bean soup was so bad Kare couldn't eaty it and if it would have much salter I wouldn't have either. Was so bad that I didn't hant any more after the first 8 ounce cup of it.

    Also didn't like how they chose best of show. A high school girl who be came the queen for a year of the bean fest who probably didn't know who built Ford Mustangs was who picked the best of show.
    Same thing this year so that didn't change with the new people putting the show on She picked a Pink car when asked about it she didn't even know the year let alone a Mecury.

    Nope we attended this show due to our friend Jim saying it had gotten better in 2018 with the new group.
    Jims Cuda, has his arms crossed behing the car, just as nice and the Mercry.

    Bean farming has came a long way from even the 1960's.

    Have been at a few shows where exactly the same thing happened. Some stupid high school kid picks the winner based on the color of the car. Participant judging is just as much of a crap shoot.

    Yes that is true since a club can and has at shows I have been to take every award home.

    Even shows that have one preson do the judgeing if they are 55 & 56 Chevy fans

    Was at a big show couple of years ago. Always judged by members of the local AACA chapter. The Riv has done well at this one in the past. That year there was only 4 cars in my class ,1959 - 1970 GM modified, Me n the Riv. , 2 Black 70 Chevells and a black 69 Camero. They were all nice cars but the detail was lacking on 2 of them. Just not clean as they could have been. Awards time came and the Chevys took 1,2,3, Im like really?

    I was in a hurry at this point only 10 miniutes left for the show. Should have spent more time taking pictures of this VW Rat Rod bus. It has rebar for the roof rack and ladder up there. A scoop on the left side to ram air over the air cooled engine. there were also two electric fans mounted on the rear as we saw folloing it out to the hiway after the show
