A Tale of Two Car Shows

Publish date:

This weekend is going to be a "tale of two car shows." There are not too many long-standing events in this hobby that I haven't been to, but the Bloomington Gold Corvette show is one of them. I'm driving there tomorrow and staying over for Saturday. I don't own a 'Vette, but I'll take my Chevy police car just to keep it "in the family." After a 5-hour ride home Saturday night, the next morning (Father's Day) I'll turn around and head south to the Milwaukee area for the British Car Field Days in Sussex, Wis. This show is alway held on Father's Day. My cars never win trophies, but my '54 MG TF did take first place for T-Series MGs last year. That's because it was the only T Series there. Bad weather kept the others away. This year the weather is supposed to be better, so I'll drive my trusty and dusty TF back again. No trophy I'm sure, but I will have the fun of the drive.
