Every year we go to several car shows ranging from local to national events. We go both as spectators and as participants. It is always much more fun when we are showing. Unfortunately, most people who go to a national car show and never get the opportunity to display their own car at such an event. They never get to participate in the behind the scenes set up and move out of such events. Today, we are going to give you some insight into the fabulous fun of the behind the car show closed doors.
The following video gives you but one brief hint as to the action and thrill of Set Up Day at the 2012 Muscle Car Corvette Nationals in Chicago. As a spectator I would pay to get into the show hall during this period but realistically it just isn’t possible. The potential for damage and injury are very high when these cars are moving around in such close quarters. Honestly, I am surprised more of the cars don’t get damaged during such times.
As for move out; can you picture what it is like when the show is over and all these cars try to exit the building at the same time? The organization and discipline is critical to make all this happen without chaos and damage.
