The show in Lakeland was a big success, at least as far as weather and lots of cool cars showing up. I was on the show field by 7:30 a.m. and Bob helped me get the car spiffed up and ready for inspection. We also met up with a lot of friends that we’d made at other shows as well as a number of friends from our club in Miami.
We had a number of people come by to look over the car. The thing that made it for a lot of people was my 1991 Uniden bag phone that I put back in the car. It doesn’t work, but they still thought it was retro-cool.
The show ended at 3 and soon we were on the road again, this time to Boca Raton where we’ll be judging at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance. Because we had to get to Boca, I didn’t stick around for the awards banquet, but a friend texted me to tell me that I had won my first Driver Participation Class plaque. It’s the first of many, I hope.
I’ll post some pictures Sunday night of both shows.
