On behalf of the management of the Seminole Paradise Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and myself, I would like to thank all of you personally for attending the Labor Day Car Show. For those of you that were not able to make the show for one reason or another, you missed a great show in spite of the late afternoon showers. Our attendance was 82 cars on Saturday and over 90 cars on Sunday. We had cars that traveled as far as Sarasota, Naples, Ft. Meyers, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Miami. For those of you that were at the show and didn't receive their show plaques, please contact me.
