McHenry Cty Fairgrounds are older and have nice trees and buildings and sheep/dairy barns we can use. Tin Butchers will be doing the swap meet and members of certain car clubs in the Chicagoland area have all agreed to come out and support the show.
What will make this event different from just any other show will be the entry criteria – no silly modern wheels – no billet. This is a pre ‘65 show… there will be a “friends” area just like they have at the Roadster show in CA every year… this will be a section for the billet cars or muscle – it will be right outside the entry way for the qualifying cars. So even if your car is too new – you can still come out and enjoy the day and be a part of the Invasion – this area for the Chevelles and such will NOT be in the normal spectator lot – it will be completely separate.
We will be getting some great music for the entire weekend.
We will have buildings at our disposal – all are very close to each other and vendors and invited show cars/kustoms will be inside the buildings. We have room for 18-24 cars on the inside and probably have about 20-30 spots for indoor vendors. One of the buildings will have an indoor theater showcasing vintage drags, stock cars, and other movie classics from back in the day.
Another aspect of the show that will be different from most other shows will be the DIY Stunt Show. This will give drivers the opportunity to “hit the pit”. A jazzed up term for an area where crazy cats can do powerslides or burn outs or donuts… one at a time and in a safe area that will have grandstand so that people can cheer the drivers on.
Pin up parade will be sponsored by Peek A Boo Pin Ups and run by women – other sponsors will be named very soon – stay tuned!
Harley Davidson is our major sponsor! Ol Skool Rodz and Car Kulture Deluxe are also sponsors – go buy the magazines!!!!
