    Anyone else planning on going this Sunday?

    It's the only show they are doing this year so I think it will be huge.

    So it's not at the old estate? I was at the last one and it was so huge that they decided to stop having them. How is going to work in that small downtown location if that many folks show up?
    Is it unadvertised?

    It has been well advertised. It went out on the mailing list and its on the website. Last year they announced no more C&C, but this year there appears to have been a change of heart and this is the only show of the year. I, for one, thought the last town show would be the last because it was crazy. We turned up at 8AM and there was almost no parking left. The town copes remarkably well to be honest. As the shows got bigger, they got less frequent but also sponsors came in to pay for police presence etc so the town were OK with it. Although I get the impression it was always a delicate situation between the town and the founders.

    Hard to predict the size of this but we will be leaving early as by 8am (the supposed start time) the place was full.

    The weather forecast so far looks good.

    My guess is that it will be absolutely mobbed. A friend was joking that he's going to park Saturday night.

    Elm St is reserved for Porsches this time around so there might be some truth in this for owners of other marques

    Nice seeing you there Clyde. Or should I say amazing bumping into you there, as there were so many people and even more cars.

    Such a great show. A tremedous number of cars and the level of quality was outstanding. many which you just don't see very often.
