Although we really enjoy the quality and rarity of cars found at the large regional and national car shows we still like attending the larger local shows. The quality found at these show can often meet and surpass what can be found nationally. Although our Dodge Nuremberg Daytona has been shown a couple of times we are still tweaking some of the final finishing touches and were anxious to get it out in public.

This past weekend was one of the biggest County Fairs in Tennessee. Most say it surpasses the State Fair, we are one of those. One of its traditional events for the past 30 years has been a car show. We decided to pick this show as the one to take the Daytona to. It is a short distance from our home and a Fair we always try to attend.

The weather was overcast all day with a treat of rain any minute. Fortunately, the rain held off until the awards were over and most of the cars were either in trailers or well on their way back to the safety of their own garage.

It turned out that this show had the biggest attendance of cars since the show first started 30 years ago. There were well over 200 terrific cars on the show field.

There was some stiff competition but our Dodge Daytona won its class and was a constant source of questions and comments from Fair spectators. Thank you Wilson County Fair for a great day, we will be back!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
