Here in Michigan April can be tricky as far as weather goes. But today we also have many means on guessing fairly accurately what today/tomorrows weather is going to be like. We also today have many high tec types of clothing to wear to endure the elements. So complete with our arsenal of winter and spring clothing at hand we pack our Buick for the drive to Midland Michigan where Northwood institute is locatated. Weather guessers were saying the high for the day was going to be 51F in Midland with winds steady at 15MPH with gust much stronger. That proved true to form. Northwood is one of Michigans premier automotive schools. Any high school student that wants a job today in the autmotive indrusty goes to Northwood for a degree. This show is totaly put on by the students of the autmotive sections of Northwood with adult advisors. 2018 they had 63 cars and trucks show up for the show again the first of the season. They ended the show early in 2018 due to comflicting events being held and the parking lot being needed for parking. This year they had 28 cars and trucks show up for the first show of the season. it was also the fourth annual to be held by the students. It was also called early this year, they never stated a reason but if I were to guess I would say it was due to the cold west wind. That wind was so strong it blew hoods down on cars, cut thru exposed flesh with a double hand of switch blades. Now if I were a guessing man I would guess this show is dieing on the vine. It takes a bit of time to pull a car/truck from winter storage and get it ready to drive to a show. There is the time spent cleaning, waxing and pimping them to shine from stem to stern form top to bottom. Then the show ends in 2 hours, those who heeded the weather guessers and are residents of Michigan were dressed for the weather and were enjoying the visit with many old like minded friends and meeting new friends of the future. I had spent hours pimping our Buick starting with a change of oil and greasing the chassis. Then it got a total bath with scrubbed tires and slick mist wax on all metal surfaces. These pictures are from last year, no way was our story board going to stand in the wind. Our Buick Could not keep the hood up this year. Adult advisors car. Also 2018 show again the story boards would not stand up to the wind. This Bronco made it again in 2019. This Nova also made it. The only Chevel this year.
