Both shows were well organized and I had a fantastic time at each of them. The pictures that I took on Saturday and Sunday can be found by clicking on these links:

Comments:  I just had to write to express my views for the Festival Car Show this past Sunday. A superb performance by Scott the DJ, Russ and his staff went out of their way to make sure that everyone was safe, had enough to eat and drink, and most of all, ENJOYED THEMSELVES. The cars were just plain out of sight, didn't know where look, I don't think I covered the whole show with so many great cars to stop and gawk at. No bad press, no arguments, no fights, just good plain fun. Thanks for another great show, see you at the next one.

Comments:  Bob Here, the die cast car vendor at the Tower shops, Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been on the phone and sending E-mails to the News, the Governor, Police and anyone else who will listen, about the police activity that happend last week at the Tower shops NO WAY THIS SHOULD HAVE GONE DOWN AT OUR SHOW!!! The Tower shops is still one of the Best and safest shows in South Florida!!! So PLEASE If you want to be at a great event with the Best DJ in town, the coolest cars, wonderful people then be at the Tower shops, Friday nights Thanks Bob & Ava

There is no way to control where criminals are going to commit their crimes.  Fortunately, this incident had nothing to do with our show, other than it was near us in towards the Home Depot lot.  This particular bad guy won't be bothering us again.

Comments:  Hey Scott. Just seen on your site that Crabby Jacks cruise night has been cancelled permanently. Was just wondering same issues as before? Last two weeks great weather and great turn out. Shame, couple of blocks away and could always count on bringing her out and having a great time with the great people.

The cruise night at Crabby's is done for good...however the cruise night has been relocated to "Zo's Off The Hook" on Sunday nights!  Same "bat time" "bat channel"!

I know that he was there with us smiling that big smile. I thank you all for coming, He loved all of you. I have decided to keep his truck & Keith thanks for your insurance company.....Well guys when I learn to drive this truck you may see me at the shows doing what Lou did...

To my big man, I miss you with each breath.. I miss you every minute & my heart hurts. Never forget how much I loved you & will love you for the rest of my days on this earth. Remember "It's only you & me Kid"!  Always.. Love ya Baby...

3 Million hits...Congratulations!!!   I for one think your site is worth $3,000,0000,000.00 for it's up to date info and what pictures !!! and all those hours you put in to bring it to all of us.... Priceless!!!! Let me also agree with you on the new found health subject, as i can attest to it's results. As you know, many years ago I was involved in a near fatal motorcycle accident, which left me paralyzed for a couple of years. Since recovering (by the grace of god) my body has not been very nice to me, until recently. I have discovered, as well as you, this new "fruit juice" that is changing people's lives like yours and mine. Hopefully both of us can share this great opportunity of health and wealth with our south Florida car family. See you at the next show !!!!

South Florida is lucky to have you there to keep us up to date, keep up the great work. WHERE DO YOU GET THE ENERGY?

Glad you asked!  First Joe, thanks for the nice compliments.  It's a labor of love for my hobby and interest...classic cars & our great car community of people!  My new found "energy" & health comes from an amazing "supercharged" fruit product I recently found. It's fairly NEW!'s very POWERFUL! ...IT WORKS!!!  It is the BEST and most potent available, nothing else even comes close.  It's been in the news and on TV, and is popular amongst athletes, the famous, & average folks like you & me,  It's changing & improving the lives of many of my friends in so many different ways.  I sleep great and I've never felt better. I'd love to share it, and what I know with anyone interested!  Any physical problems...this could help you!  Watch for it at our next BIG car show!  (smile)

Comments:  "Raindrops keep fallin'....on my head" Yes....... it did rain at the City of Miramar's "Xmas for Kids Car Show"........but it didn't stop 35 plus cars from attending this benefit show. After the storm passed through, it was a great evening. The Movie screen went up, the food was ready, and "Scott the MusicMan's" great music could be heard by everyone. Over $5,000.00 was raised for the Broward Elk's Fund for children, all the show cars glistened from their complimentary "Car Wash" and trophies plus cash awards were won by many (with the car owners donating back their cash to the children) including our DJ Scott, Russ G, and Vendors Bob & Ava from Ava's Diecast Cars. On behalf of the City of Miramar, Broward Elk's Lodge, myself, and especially the car owners who braved the weather......... I thank you !!!!!!! Russ G "The Rainman"

Comments:  Scott, You always do a superb job as a DJ, photographer, and as a person at all the cruise nights and shows. I have to agree with Jeff Keller about Craby Jacks only allowing certain year auto's to park in the "secure" area. We traveled up there when it got back on track with some friends and their cars with the intentions of having a bite to eat and a cold one or two. When they kicked us out of the lot, which was half empty, we decided to visit another eatery. We were not nasty, mad, out of line, just could not understand why when you have a half empty parking lot you kick out prospective customers. Thanks for letting me have my say, keep up the great work with the shows and promoters that you hang with. Dania Beach on Saturday, can't wait. Your comments are welcomed, I'm ready for the explanation, good or bad. Dave Weber

Dave (and Jeff), I appreciate the kind comments regarding my work.  Regarding the parking at Crabby Jacks, it is my understanding that the lot has limited parking space, so it was decided that only "classic cars" (which most people come to see) would be able to park in the main "show area".  Cars that don't meet the requirement are still welcome to park in the surrounding lots and enjoy the evening and a meal as well.  While it may not have been full the night you were there, it often is a cut off year had to be set.  I'm sure you are aware that many of the "classic car guys" prefer not to have late models mixed in with them, as this is a "classic car cruise".  Over crowded parking problems are what got Crabby Jacks closed down last year, in case you didn't know.  It's great that you were able to find an alternate place to hang out where late models are welcome and on display.

Hey Scott, still diggin' the site and thanks so much for your hard work for our enjoyment. Just a quick commentary on the Sunday night Crabby's cruise in. I'm really glad it's back since I live in Boca and really appreciate those that organize it but, I've invited everyone with a cool car that I come in contact with and some have decided not to continue to attend because they can't park with the people they cruise with or not even with the group at large at all if their car is post 1980. I understand keeping classes of cars together if it's a trophy show but, for a cruise in night it doesn't seem to be really necessary...and my fear is loosing Crabby's again if we don't get a good weekly following of car enthusiasts. Just wanted to voice my concern so maybe the comments would make a difference. Best Regards, JK

Comments:  Hey Scott, On behalf of myself, Ocean's 11 Restaurant, and all who attended our 1st. "Back to the Beach" Cruise Night last night, I want to Thank You ! for a job well always! Although the skies were overcast, and the wind & surf was didn't rain. We had a parking lot full of some great cars, with half of them, never before seen. All who attended enjoyed the great atmosphere of the beach, your music, and the good food and cold beer that Ocean's 11 is so famous for. The 20% discount off their checks and a free Ocean's 11 T-shirt made it worth while to be there. But most of all......we all contributed to raise money for ALS (Lou Gehirgs Disease) Thanks Again ! See you next month, same time, same place.....(Nov 3rd)   -Russ Gagliano

Comments:  I mourn the loss our friend Lou. Hearing about him being stricken, and finally his passing, I stood off and took a long look at life and the values I found in it: I saw a paradox, that he who loses his life does indeed find it. The more you give, the more you get. The less you think of yourself, the more of a person you become. This is how I remember Lou Torres.

8/13/2007: Scott, I attended the Tri-Power Pontiac Nationals this past weekend. Although I was only there on Saturday, I was able to get a lot of great pics of the Pontiac show cars, plus pics and videos of the drag racing. There were well over 400 show cars and something like 500 cars there for the drag racing. Here's a link to the pictures that I posted on my garage page at Motortopia: Hope to see you at Tower Shops on Friday!! Soupy

Update 8/16/2007:  Scott - the prelim copy of the Music Video co-starring my Black '78 Bandit Trans Am is out on You Tube - the link to the video is: The artist is Bea and is a well know Latin musician from Venezula. This is her first music video and she is hoping to get it aired on MTV and VH1. See you Friday at Tower Shops and then on Saturday in Weston. Next up for me is the Trans Am Nationals in Dayton, Ohio next weekend. See you over the weekend... Soupy

Update 8/27/2007:  Scott- I have returned from Dayton, Ohio and have a lot of pictures from the Trans Am Nationals held at the Dayton Airport Hotel. The pictures are posted here: The weather on Saturday was almost perfect with temps in the mid 80's and a nice breeze. See you on Friday at Tower Shops!! Soupy

Comments:  Scott, Can you inquire if anyone has attended Mickey's Hot Rod cruise? I stopped by on Saturday evening about 5- 5:15 and the place looked empty. Where do they park the cars, the lot was pretty small and it didn't appear that many cars would fit - period. So, if anyone goes there, let us know what it is like. Also, do you know if Dania Beach is going to have a cruise anytime soon. I think Russ G. runs that one ???? Thanks and keep on cruising.

It seems you arrived at Mickey's way too early.  They run the show, so I have no additional info to offer, nor do I know who attends.  There is a Dania Beach "Sunset Cruise" coming up on Oct 27.  Russ G. and myself are NOT affiliated with this show.  It is run by the city's Parks & Recreation Dept...I have no further info.

Herb, I am really glad you enjoyed the music, especially since you were setup directly in front of the sound system pushing a lot of power to a large event area.  I heard we broke a 23 year record for temperature that day!  I know my A/C sure felt great driving home! Thanks for the kind words, and we look forward to seeing you both, and your new ride, at the shows!  I wasn't able to get any photos at the show, but here's one that Joe took from  Take care.

It was wrapped it pretty spectacular style last Tuesday with the singer driving my Trans Am over the Rickenbacker Causeway during Sunrise while being filmed from a helicopter.

Comments:  Hi Scott, I was curious why you would not post or list the Tuesday evening Corvette only cruise in at the Hooters on University and Pines. I know there is a DJ working the show, but last evening there were about 20-25 Vettes there. Many of them show up on Friday evenings at the Tower Shop. I am only asking, they are trying to build this Tuesday thing and I thought it would be nice for you to post it. Again, just asking why or why not. As always, thank you for a great job and keep up the good work. We look forward to the shows that you cover and work.

Comments:  Hey Scott, I heard that you do the DJ'ing at the Tower Shops on Friday Night car show. I was thinking of heading down to Davie on June 1st for the show with some friends. I'm going to be bringing my car. I was wondering what is the best time to come where all the cars are on display? What time do most people leave etc...? Thanks Pavel

Hi Pavel, yes I am the DJ at Towershoppes...for almost 15 years now.  This is South Florida's largest & longest running event, and goes from 6pm-10pm every Friday night, SE corner of I595 & University Dr in Davie.  Some cars get there early before 6pm to save spots.  Classic cars park inside, imports park in surrounding lots.  Parking is $2.  This pays Towershoppes management fees, city fees, insurance, DJ, and other miscellaneous costs to host this event.  It's a family event, and there are vendors and lots of restaurants there too.  "Prime time" is between 7-9pm, and people start leaving after 9pm.  If you need any further info, contact Mike 954.806.7822, or Sid 954.829.8138.  Look forward to having you!

It would give us something to do instead of our daily routine. Everyone thought we were nuts. My son has learned so much about cars going to the shows he's starting to know more than me. lol. We have met so many great people at the car shows it's unbelievable. All you guys and gals here on this site and we see at the shows are A1 top notch people. It is great to know that there is still people like yourselves out there and we thank you all for letting us be a part of your family. Alicia Robert Chris

Scott - I have said it before and it still stands true, your pics and DJ efforts are tops. I spend a few hours a week checking the Internet for other car show sites, and ya know what? There's nothing out there that tops the site that you have put together here. I am proud to be a part of the car show world here in Southeast Florida and the car show family of Russ & Jumpin' Jack. Too bad summer is here already... Russ / Jack, if you read this, let's get some Saturday evening shows going so we can get out of the house and see all the beautiful cars that the guys & gals bring out. See you at Tower, Soupy -   Thanks Soup!

Comments:  Attended the Maroone Chevy show this past Sunday. Fewer cars than planned on, yet the outcome was very nice. Elvis, free B-B-Q and pop all day, Oldies 102 live broadcast, and of course our own Scott the music man. Scott, you did a superb job considering the heat. Never slowed you down one bit. Congrats to all that attended, Mothers Day will never be the same. Thanks to all, a job well done by all. Quick note: I bought my 1st car from Mr. Al Maroone in Amherst/Willaimsville, NY back in 1967. A '64 Ford Galaxy 500 fastback, automatic, with a 352/2 barrel and dual exhaust. Keep up the great work and see you at the next show. Dave

And I would imagine newcomers who visit would be addicted as myself. As always you help keep the South Florida Cruisin alive...... Thanks for all of your efforts and see you at the upcoming events.

Thanks Robert.  Actually, the website has been going for only a little over 1 and half years now, although more than 3 years worth of photos are posted.  It's pretty amazing to think we're going to hit 2 million pages viewed.  I hope to have the Moroso Chevy Show photos available for you soon.  Take care...

Comments:  I was totally shocked by the turnout at the Festival Flea Market this past Sunday. 556 cars is unheard of. There were so many cars I had not seen at other cruise nights or car shows. It was a blast to say the least. Thanks to all involved in making it happen, you put a huge smile on my face. I can't wait for the next one in December. Dave

Yes Dave, that certainly was an amazing show!  Glad you enjoyed!  (when the photos from that show get posted, let me know which photo is your car, so I can add it to this guest book post)  ..Take care..

Update 4/29/2007:  Went to the Cooper City Founders Day Show this past Saturday. Nice show, great company, dang hot weather. Followed that up with a trip to the Dania Beach Cruise Night. They should run that cruise every 3 months, or even monthly. The turnout was okay, but the setting was even better. Nice views, some pretty neat people, some fine cars, and the evening weather was just perfect.  We will always make room for this cruise night. Dave

I sometimes come on this site and gaze for hours at all of the beautiful cars, photographed very well I might add. I also wanted to ask a questions about a Tuesday night weekly cruise in in Stuart. Lots of people have been telling me about it, and I don't know where to find location info on it. Do you know anything about the Tuesday classic car cruise in Stuart? Thanks Scott for everything you do!

Thanks Pavel for the nice words!  Sorry, I don't know anything about the Stuart cruise.  Take care..

Comments: Hey Scott! I'd like to ask a question to you and others that visit this site. I'm aware of a couple of car clubs out there (Time Bandits, Road Knights, Cruisers, etc.), and I know these guys periodically put on shows. Is there one particular site where these clubs describe themselves? Maybe you'd be interested in a "Club Page" posted on your site, directing people who are interested in joining these different clubs. Or, would you, or someone else be interested in starting a new club? I always see a lot of cars down at Tower Shops, and I know most don't belong to clubs for one reason or another. I'd be interested to hear what those reasons are, and maybe a bunch of us could form a new club that would fill in a niche that isn't already out there. I look forward to everyone's thoughts on this. Thanks again for the hard work you do on this site!! See you at the Festival Flea Market......-Joe.

Hey Joe, sounds like you've got some good ideas there!  Looks like you may be more than qualified to be President of that new club!  I like the "Club Page" idea.  See you Sunday!

Comments:  Just wondering what the story was on Sidepocket Pub's not having a cruise nite.

Lex, it is my understanding that the City of Margate shut down the cruise night, and that the owner of Side Pockets thought, with his "influence" being on some city board or commission, that he would be able to resolve the matter.  Margate has been responsible for shutting down several other cruise nights or car shows as well, including  Crabby Jacks on Atlantic Blvd, and Bru's Room on Sample Rd.  Margate is definitely NOT a "classic car friendly" town.

Comments:  Scott , you've done an excellent job with your web site . You also did an excellent job with the music at the Mopar show last Sunday , and I'm still trying to figure out how you find the time to take photographs the way that you do - along with play music . My hat off to you for being so multi-talented and for being so good at what you do . I'm looking forward to bringing the van out and seeing you again at some very near future shows . PS wanted to submit a photo but I haven't quite got the hang of this computer thing yet - take care .

Hey Melvan, it's GREAT to hear from you, and was an even nicer surprise to see you showing at the Mopar Show!  Don't worry, I've got the photo covered.  Thanks for the "guest book" post, and for the nice comments.  I'll admit, it's quite a job sometimes playing the music, making the announcements, interacting with the crowd, and photographing over 200 cars at a show!  I have to work FAST, and walk fast too.  I don't usually get to chat with folks for more than a few seconds.  To complicate matters, I always try to get the shots when there are no people in the way...not always possible.  I have to (patiently) wait for them to move, and squeeze in a quick shot (and make it count) before the next folks walk in.  Add that to trying to get the shots when the sun is out between the clouds...ha!   Computer technology does offer me some freedom to move around that didn't exist in years past...couldn't do it without it.  It really is nice to see you are still showing your van.  Most of the old vans from that era didn't survive, especially as nicely as yours did!  Take care Melvan...hope to see you again real soon!

Comments:  Scott you have done a great job with the site. I love it!!! I refer to it as the car show bible! Your coverage of all the local shows is incredible. After reading the comments though i feel i should leave my own. I don't think anybody should "BOO" someone elses car. Thats not what this hobby is all about. You may not like the car or the judge's choice but we are all one big family. Everyone has thier own style and may express it in thier rides. Me personaly i like to see a tastefuly modded car. I don't want to see gawdy interiors, lambo doors, or a car that has everything Pep Boys sells put on it. But the bottom line is that its there car and they are enjoing it and bringing it out so other people can enjoy it. I also agree that some changes should be made in the way cars are classed. I understand that most shows nowadays don't have specific classes anymore but they could tighten the field up alittle. After all the late model class is apparently a mess. There are some really nice late models out there but i don't think its fair to put a stock 75 mustang in the same class as an 07 shelby or a Pro street big block 78 malibu against a 03 malibu. I think they should class out as follows. Pre 74 75-93 93-present Truck all If they want to add more then can add stock and moddified but you get the idea and i think it splits the cars up pretty good. Well thanks for your time and keep up the great work!

You suggestions sound excellent.  I know some shows do break it up in similar ways.  As you know, every show is different, depending on how the host WANTS to do the show.  They will typically design a car show the way they like for what ever reasons they deem important or necessary.  Just about every show will benefit some, and not others.  You'll do better at some shows, and not at others.  That is some of the beauty of the diversity of shows.  There are reasons for giving out "Top 60" or whatever awards, and people need to realize this...every show WILL NOT be the same.  I like your idea because it seems to be a nice compromise.  By the way, you should know the guy who "boooed" the PT Cruiser was "big enough" to admit it, and made friends with Rick.  I have a lot of respect for owning up to this.  I also think sometimes people are sometimes just being "competitive", and I feel this may have been blown a little out of proportion.  I think we can lay this issue to rest!  Thanks Dugan, for the nice words...see you at the next show!

Hi Scott, I have enjoyed your Website for a couple years now. When I have Ruby (my hotrod) out, I invariably get asked where I show her and my standard answer is “look on for all the listings of local shows and gatherings”. Your site has become the Holy Grail of car shows in my opinion, and you have my utmost gratitude in keeping up such a fine website. I, for one, do realize the massive undertaking it takes to keep the website current. Now… I would like to add my 2 cents about judging at shows. I was one of the late model winners, that you may ha
DSC_6879ve mentioned in your reply to Joe, at the "Darrell Gwynn Show". I hope the "custom built" 407hp motor (NO its not a Corvette Motor), in my car, was a big part of that award. I am a firm believer of outsider or guest judging. Lets face it, when they pick judges consisting of the car owners, I have seen it become no more than a “one of the good ol’ boys” award. You know as well as I, we see a lot of the same cars and people repeatedly, doing the local circuit shows. Finding a unbiased judge could be difficult, unless you had stringent guidelines or points system to go by, then it wouldn’t be a personal popularity contest. On the other hand I’ve personally witnessed an unscrupulous car owner stuffing a peoples choice ballet box as well. So you really can’t win when it comes to handing out awards. I personally have been given an award in a category, even though I felt someone else’s car was superior to mine, in my honest opinion. But, was I willing to give it up? NO WAY DUDE… they are too hard to come by!!!! The choice is a personal likening, by that particular judge. His taste may be different than mine… (This is obvious, because I’ve only received a couple awards for my car). One judge may like to see original equipment whereas the next judge prefers customizing, and yet another may favor a balance of the two (this is where I’m headed). I keep trying to improve the car and just hope they notice. If I don’t get an award, oh welllll… at least I get to meet friends like Cherry & Berry, Rick, Jack, Fred, Al, and too many others to list… I think making all these acquaintances, outweighs any award I would be given, anyway. Jason

Jason, very nice to hear from you.  Thanks for the nice comments, and thanks for taking the time to write your well though out comments on the judging issues.  There are so many issues and angles to consider when it comes to judging, and you've certainly touched on a few.  Most people however, view what's best at a show from their own point of view, where they have the best shot at an award...and less consideration is given to the work involved by the host.  There are pro's and con's to each aspect of judging methods.  I am no authority on the matter, but I'll share a few of my opinions of what I have seen...I'm sure there are folks here who could elaborate with more specific detail.

Points Judging:  Pros:  more accurate and fair. 
Cons:  "Experienced" and knowledgeable judges are required, takes a long time to judge every car, requires a team of  "experienced" judges to cover a large show, takes time to calculate judging sheets, etc, etc.  This is the most complex type of judging.  Finding volunteers to work for free at this level is not likely, paying "professional" judges would raise the cost of the show.  There are shows like this..."World of Wheels" for example.  Most local guys and clubs can't or don't work at this level.  Other cons would be that only higher-end cars would win causing the little guy to not want to come to this show because he would never have a chance at winning.  Also, the "same" cars would usually win.

Peoples Choice:  Pros:  No work involved by show planners.  Everyone gets to be "involved" making it fun for spectators. 
Cons:  least accurate, becomes a popularity contest, people stuff boxes.  If only 1 choice is allowed, people usually vote for themselves, or their friends.  This type of voting is garbage in my opinion, but again, is fun for spectators.  This type of award is usually "monitored" and given the weight it deserves of usually only 1 trophy. 

Judging by Show Participants:  (see peoples choice above)  The fairness of this method really depends on the voting sheets, and how well laid out they are.  Again, if there is only 1 voting choice, then it's basically useless and pointless (see reasons above).  But sometimes clever methods can be utilized to make this method more fair and interesting. Who better to judge cars, then the car owners judging each other.

Judging by Classes:  Pros:  Most popular and pretty fair.  Not a surprise when a late model wins in a "late model" class.  Requires dedicated judges who will be as fair as possible,  Similar to "points" show, but not as stringent.
Cons:  Still requires "knowledgeable" judging and takes time to judge accurately and tabulate.  A team of judges are usually needed to cover a large show, and judging criteria is still left somewhat up to each individual judge.  Awards usually have to have specific class emblem on them, and often awards go unused if cars don't show in a particular class.  Still imperfect, and someone still always has an issue with the results.

Top Awards:  Pros:  Easiest way to spread awards out at a large show.  Has become a popular method at many shows because it's quicker and easier.   Every winner is a 1st place winner.  Every award gets used, even when cars leave before show is over.  Easier to give to deserving cars when more than 2 or 3 would be in the same class.  It can be less work, and can be done by one or two judges.  Judging is more flexible, and can be based on anything particular judges see of interest.  Almost anyone can win which draws a wider range of cars. 
Cons:  Cars are not always looked at closely.  Less accurate...although  judging sheets can still be used with some kind of point system.

Judging by outsider or guest judges:  Not likely.  Flying in outsiders would be an added expense.  Car show judges are usually car show people.  They will have friends, they have preferences too, and some are more fair than others.  Unless you know of aliens that are knowledgeable about cars and are willing to travel, it's not likely to see "out-sourced" judging.  You may see this on a National show level, but not at a "local" level.  Promoters can be hired to do the work, but they will still have to choose a judging method above that meets their needs.

These are just my observations.  Going to a show and complaining about awards is one thing...but putting on a show is a different story, and can be a lot of work.  I could go on at length regarding all the various related issues...make it fun, make it fair, make it inexpensive, make it cater to everyone, make the host happy, etc, etc.   Everyone has an opinion on how to do it best...from their own point of view.  Often times, there isn't enough time, or the manpower to do the job ideally, so the work usually falls back on the same few workers.  Compromises are sometimes made because you have to work with what you have... and in those cases it may only be a compromise depending on what side you are on.  One of the biggest issues that some people seem to miss is that EVERYONE has their own idea on how to have the "perfect" show.  But it's NEVER going to happen.  Too many different opinion & ideas.  That's why there are so many different types of shows put on by so many different groups.  We have "open" shows, closed shows, classic car shows, race car shows, original and unmodified shows, model specific shows, free cruise-night shows, etc, etc.  Pick what you can get in to...pick what works for you...Pick what you like!  There is no right or wrong answer.  If you have an issue, then you should also have a solution...a workable solution that everyone can agree on!  Once you get everyone's approval, then host your show.

In the end Jason, I agree with you!  Go out and make some friends at the shows...and have fun!

Comments: Hey Scott ! I just wanted to say I visit your site every day to check in on the local scene. Every time I come across a classic car on the road I tell the driver about this site and what it provides. I'd like to propose a car show dedicated to this site, where the registration fees go to you to help with its cost (I have no idea what it costs to run this site, but it can't be cheap!). I'd also like to weigh in on the "PT Cruiser" issue, which is not limited to PT Cruisers, but every kind of late model vehicle. I do see both sides in the argument, and I agree that an "Open" show is open to all vehicles. I think what it comes down to is the judging, and that judge's personal opinion on what a winner is. I also think there is a desire amongst judges to spread the awards around evenly to different classes so no one feels slighted. The problem is when the ratio of cars isn't even. If there are 90% pre-76 vehicles and 10% post-76, the distribution of awards should reflect that ratio. Again, this is only my opinion and you'll never get everyone to agree on this issue. Maybe every "Open" show should have classes to avoid this problem. I think if people only go to a show to win a trophy they should stay home. Take pride in your vehicle and the work you put in it. You don't need a trophy as a pat on the back. When you drive down the street and see people's faces as they check out your ride, that should be reward enough, but again, that's my opinion. Thanks again for this site and your dedication to us car fanatics !! See ya at the next show !! couldn't have said it any better!  I'll respond to a couple of your comments. First, thanks for the nice "show proposal" idea, but it isn't necessary...this website runs on "love" for our hobby...classic cars.  Secondly, on the "late model" or PT Cruiser correctly put the responsibility of the awards on the judges...and the fact that it often comes down to their "personal" preference on what they saw or liked, and the fact that sometimes awards are "spread" around as well...although I don't think that was the case here.  Your idea of "open show classes" is very good and is often used in many shows, but obviously not all.  Every show is different, and the level of work is determined by how accurate and complex the judging gets.  The "Ed Morse Show" never said it was a "points show with individual classes"...just 2 classes..."Corvette" and "Non-Corvette" was QUITE clear!  Show judging will never be perfect in everyone's let's just try to have fun and maybe we'll win at the next one.  There are plenty of shows (in fact the majority) that don't allow "late models".  If a PT Cruiser wins there...then we would have a "legitimate" problem. I'm a "muscle car" guy...and if I were judging...awards would probably be handed out by engine size! Recently some of the "classic" cars guys complained about the "Darrell Gwynn Show" because they were beat out by some ratty ol' "race" cars at an open "race car" show...imagine that!  An award was also given out to a late-model there as well...which was complained about too.  Come on people...let's get with it!

Thanks Joe, for getting the word out about "our" web site...the growth continues to surprise and amaze me!  See you at the next show!

Comments:  Scott, love the pictures of all the events. Could you take some more pictures of the car show at towershops for some of us Floridians that moved out of state so that we can see some of our friends that still attend there. The car shows up in our neck of the WOODS are bleak unless we travel out of the mountains. We miss you Wes and Linda.... Bud, Grace, Sheryl, Rich and Will.....

Note from the Moderator:  The "Ed Morse" show WAS a successful "open" car show that "welcomed" all years, makes, and models.  This show featured roughly 90% classics and about 10% late model was expected.  Awards were handed out accordingly.

Comments: Hey Scott, regarding the PT Cruiser at the Ed Morse show, what we have here is a failure to communicate. According to the show literature it was billed as an "open classic" show. "Open" meaning that any make i.e. Chevy, Dodge, Ford, etc. could enter. However, Plum Crazy failed to mention the "CLASSIC" requirement. Can we agree that a 2001 PT Cruiser is not a classic? In your posting of 09/06 you were very specific that "classic" means pre-1974. When I go to a "classic" car show that is what I want to see CLASSIC CARS! I can walk through any parking lot to see a PT Cruiser. I would suggest that Plum Crazy was upset at being booed because he knows he doesn't belong at a "CLASSIC" car show.

Jack, I accept your are correct on 3 out of 4 counts... 1) The flier does list the show as an "classic car & truck show, and 2) that earlier in 2006 I said that a "classic" in my "opinion" was '74 and older, and 3) that I would agree with you that a PT Cruiser is not a "classic".  What you missed is that 4) this was an "open" classic car & truck" show.  Additionally, this show was hosted by "The Renegade Corvette Club", and not by me...or by my opinion on what makes up a "classic".  Judging and awards were coordinated by Jumpin' Jack under the club's "open" show criteria.  You will also note that there were no year limitations... or in other WAS a classic car show (by someone else's definition) that featured CLASSIC CARS and was "also" open to all years, makes, and models...such as late model Corvettes and PT Cruisers.  How many "car" shows have you been to where "trucks" are allowed to participate as well?  It's not my intent to challenge your opinion because in part I agree with much of what you well as do others.  But you're not trying to convince me that you don't know what an "open" show means...are you?

Comments:  im the one who booed the pt cruiser and i didnt do it to be a bad sport or offend any car show or any person, but when people build cars or trucks with all there heart and soul no matter what year i think thats were its deserved the most. I have gone to alot of these shows and think that this pt cruiser has placed and got an award at every show, I just dont see the hard work behind putting grafix's and chrome. Now put a hemi and tubb it out and you got something!!! so i will be the better man and say that if i hurt anybody's feelings, I'M SORRY , I think there were more deserving cars and trucks other than that car, and im speaking for more people than just myself, scott you do great things for these shows and spend alot of time with the people and i give you alot of credit, keep up the good work and hope to see you at the next show, maybe this will all work out and the cruiser will cruise on.

Fair enough, Glenn!  Thanks for owning up to what happened, and for expressing your reasons and feelings on the matter.  Your points are well taken.  It is not my intent to mediate the differences here, but to give you the option to express your opinions, which you've done clearly, and certainly have merit.

Comments:  Hey Scott, it was another FUN day full of great cars, great music, the weather turned out good, and it's always nice hanging out with my friends and family. Thanks for the parking spot Soupy. And it was great seeing Jeff, Edwin and his wife, Barry & Cherry, and my friend Joe with his red corvette. I was also fortunate enough to get an award out of all those beautiful cars on display. I think the only person who didn't have fun was the guy who loudly "boooooooooed" me when he heard that a PT cruiser won. He didn't realize that I was standing no further than twenty feet away from him. It wasn't the first time I received that kind of response, and I imagine it won't be the last. Let's not forget that it was an "open" show, which means every car has a chance for an award. I believe that people who have to express that type of unsportsmanlike conduct are not only booing me, but also the judges, and maybe the entire show. FYI: For what it's worth, my older brother and I used to build and race muscle cars in the pro stock class back in the late 60's, early 70's. A 1956 Chevy, a 1969 camaro, and before that a 1934 chopped top Dodge in C/gas class. We raced and met people at the nationals in New Jersey and Ohio like "Grumpy" Jenkins, "Dandy" Dick Landy, Sox & Martin, Dave Strickler, Jack Chrisman, and Gene Snow, just to name a few. Those were really fun and exciting times. So in closing, I just didn't wake up one day and buy a PT cruiser. And many thanks to those guys out there who keep the muscle cars, Street Rods, Hot Rods, classics, etc... still alive for me to appreciate.

Hey Rick, I don't think I could add much to what you said, because I think you were right on target!  Some people may not realize that an "open" show is just to all types.  If all the trophies went to only the classic cars, then it wouldn't really be an "open" show.  The PT Cruiser was designed in many ways to emulate the classic cars of yesteryear, and you guys certainly put a lot of effort in the customization of your cars.  Rick, you are a "real" car enthusiast who didn't deserve a "boo" at an open car show.  I hope those that are reading this agree.  There will always be someone complaining about the trophy winners.  If they haven't figured out by now that the awards winners at every show varies by show criteria and judges preferences.  The judges obviously saw something of quality they liked with your car.  We're here to have fun.  Thanks for being part of our car community family...and for enjoying our show with us. By the way, I have photos of a winning PT Cruiser at the "World of Wheels" show this year I'll post soon.  Take care!

Clem, at the rate of growth you might be right!  It does take up some of my time, but it's enjoyable. Thanks so much for your help too!  You have been there a few times for me when it really mattered, helping with equipment, helping Diane out, and sending in photos when I couldn't be everywhere.  You are also one of those "behind the scenes" guys who volunteers his help to make many of the shows go smoothly.  Looking forward to another great year in 2007.  Thanks again Clem for all you do too.

From Email: 

Scott:  I am working on the production of a PBS documentary titled "Seeing in the Dark," and we are interested in renting a '57 Ford Fairlane convertible for a 1950s historical recreation scene. The filming will take place in November in Miami and will take one day, perhaps two. The scene will involve driving the car, but slowly and only on a side street in a controlled environment.

Do you know anyone in the area with a '57 Fairlane convertible who might be interested in renting for a day or two?

Thanks very much for your help. Please feel free to give me a call to discuss.

great show ,however i thought it was a pre 1974 show . i would have enjoyed to partake in the event w/ my car time ill just bring it ...take my chances....thanks ken

Sorry Ken, but the "Hard Rock Show" was a "pre-74" show only...with one or two "special interest" exceptions.  I'm going to give it to you straight...your car is quite frankly not the kind of car they wanted on display, and would not have been allowed in.  This show was not there for you to "partake" in, but rather to offer an era of classic cars for display.  There's a lot I could say...but I'll keep my opinions brief.  It's not going to be my intention to offend either.  I agree with the "pre-74" rule at a "classic car" show.  1974 was the last year for the non-catalytic "classic muscle" car...putting an end to an era... and some would argue it was already over before then.  With gas shortages, unleaded fuels, catalytic converters, & engine clogging emission standards, the "classic car" era came to a screeching halt!  Starting around 1975-on, for at least the following decade or so, America produced the worst crap ever, making way for imports to take over. American car manufacturers have been struggling ever since to regain lost trust in their poor product.  I am happy to say within the recent decade, there are a lot of new & exciting performance American cars being manufactured, but there is a big gap back to the "classic car" of yesteryear that America loved.  The late 70's-80's is a car era that most of us would like to forget.  As I said, it wasn't my intention to offend, or start a debate, and these are just my opinions, but shared by many here.  I appreciate that you are a car enthusiast. There are a lot of great car guys out there driving mid and late-models. There will be "open" shows where it may be possible for you to show your car at.  See you then...take care.

Scott, It was such a pleasure meeting such a fine gentleman at the Hard Rock Car Show on Sunday, 3 Sept.'06. I was the gangster with the black outfit and white beard of the Mobsters, Inc. group. We hope we can do some more shows with you again at other events. Please keep us informed. I promised you my bosses website to see our other group called the Wyatt Earp Gunfighters---it's  Most of us are School Teachers who love to act and teach people about the history of the Old West and the Roaring 20's. Marc Sternburg is our leader of both groups and I told him I met you and would give you our website...I'm sorry I wasn't able to bring my Fire Truck to the event as the fuel line broke on me at the last minute and will take some time to fix. Hope to have it at some of your future events. "Happy Trails" & "What, ya want a piece of Me?" Bob Munday

Bob, it was a delight to meet you...and your "gang"!  You guys really added a unique "flair" to our car show...and from what I heard, were a little too convincing for at least one unsuspecting patron who called security to report some gun slinging guys that were walking around with machine guns....too funny!  That's one for the books!  You guys were GREAT!  I hope you don't mind...I posted one of the photos I took at the show which I hope you like.

Scott, Great ! Great! Great ! Great ! job on the "Labor Day Car Show" at the "Hard Rock Hotel & Casino". It was an extreme pleasure working with you again. You outdid yourself this time, not only did you play some great music for the car owners and general public, but continued to play as it was raining to keep our spirits up. Your coverage of the show, before, during, and after, on your website was truly over and above your calling. South Florida's Car Community is truly fortunate to have such a dedicated Disc Jockey, Car Lover, and friend........ As the promoter of the show, I feel it's great success was inspired you......."Scott......The MusicMan"   Russ G

Thanks Russ.  South Florida is really lucky to have a couple of "dedicated" DJ's, but the credit really goes to all the great people I get to work with, like yourself, who make my job so much easier, and the great folks who support our shows.  You really out-did yourself with THIS show... as I know you put in countless hours, days, weeks, and months into the preparations.  Your dedication to the car community came shining through at this event!  The weather didn't always cooperate with us, but it never dampened our spirits!  If I had waited for the rain to stop Saturday...I would have never got to  It will always be a pleasure to do shows with you!

Hey Soupy...nice to finally hear from we see you at so many of the South Florida shows.  I can't take credit for the music at "Bru's Room"...for once I was parked next to you...kickin' back, relaxing, and enjoying the show too.  The "Time Bandits" always do a nice job with their shows.  You're "Black Bandit" Trans Am is a great car!  My mom had one a few years ago and unfortunately had to part with it.  Thanks for stopping by the web site...and we'll see you this weekend at the "Seminole Hard Rock Labor Day Show".

Hey Rick, it was GREAT to have you at our show!  While Moroso provides a excellent venue for a car show, it still wouldn't be a "show" without good folks like you who make it fun too! We look forward to seeing you & the "gang" at our December Mopar Show.

Oh looks like I missed a great time at Sheehan Pontiac! I must thank Eugene for the heads up and the invite to that gathering, but I made a last minute trip to Alaska and into the Arctic Circle. Sorry I couldn't be there !! With Crabby Jacks meets shut-down there's not much left up Boca way. I hope to make it to something in the near future. Steve W in Boca

Hi Steve, yes you did miss quite a show!  Eugene & the folks at Sheehan Pontiac always put on a great event!  The next show at 'Sheehan' will be the "Darrell Gwynn Hi-Performance Show", Jan 6, 2007, and we hope to see you there!  Alaska & the Arctic that's some trip!  Nice to hear from you again!

Nice photos as always! Hey, your camera seems to be out of memory at tower shoppes - you don't have any corvette photos... I know, we always hide out at the far-end of the parking lot. I'm not complaining personally, as you have some nice shots of my yellow & purple corvette from some of your other shows & events. Respectfully, Greg       (photo NOT from Towershoppes)  >

Hey Greg, thanks for the comments.  You are correct about the Towershoppes photos.  The cruise area is so large, and because I am working,  I don't usually get to the far reaches of the show.  Additionally, most of the photos are usually taken early in the evening, so I miss many that show up later.  I hope to be able to expand my photo coverage of South Florida's largest cruise spot somehow, and include more of the cars (like yours) I may have missed.  Take care...see you at the next show.

Love the site. I can not tell you how often I have been upset about not being able to find a car show to go and see. Please keep up the good current information. I know these efforts take time and energy, but it is appreciated by us all. Thanks David 1987 442 owner

Thanks David, for the appreciation & kind words.  While scanning fliers & processing hundreds of photos per show take up some valuable time, it's a hobby I enjoy, especially when I can share it with others.  I'm still learning basic HTML, so hopefully you'll see new & better things as time goes on.  I'm always open to new suggestions & ideas, which can always be posted here, or emailed to me.  See you at the shows!

Scott; Just wanted to say how much my 12 year old son and I enjoy the cruise nights. They are fun family friendly events. I recently purchased a 1970 Chevelle and we try to go to as many events as possible. Prior to my purchase we went to several events which were fun for both of us as well as a learning experience. Everybody we come in contact with is friendly and willing to share their knowledge. Your web site is great! Thanks Jim

Yes Jim, the car crowd in our area is a great bunch of people, and the cruise nights here are a shining example of that.  It great your 12 year old enjoys it too.  You drive a '70 Chevelle...that's very cool...I also own a's a 1969 convertible.  Be sure to stop me for a photo of you & your son...see you out at the cruise nights!

Just found this site and want to say great job and keep up the good work. My name is John and I have many different cars and projects but my pride and joy right now is a 1963 Impala Wagon. It has been body dropped, airbagged, and is being turned into one of if not the baddest wagons in Fla. Hope to get back into the show circuit very soon. See you out there.......

Hi John, glad to have you with us.  Sounds like a GREAT project you have there with that Impala Wagon...can't wait to check it out!  Growing up my family owned a 1969 Impala wagon with a factory 327 four-barrel Holley.  One of my 1st cars was a 1969 Mercury station wagon, but somehow I don't think it was quite the same...  (email me a photo)

Hey Scott....thanks again for some great pictures from the Cooper City show. You took some great candid pics if you know what I mean. My daughter was real excited to see the pictures you took of her and her "boyfriend". She couldn't wait to print them. I know she'll be looking forward now to come to the next show if she knows you'll be there. Did you tell me at one of the shows that the negatives are available if I wanted any? See you at the next show. Rick Rose "Plum Crazy" Pt.

Hey Rick, it was really great to have them at our show!  It's so cool that they took an interest in showing.  I'd be happy to email you the originals, just let me know which ones they liked.  Thanks again...take care...

Hi Ana.  Thanks for taking the time to write. On April 1, I was doing a "private party" in Ft. Lauderdale.  Looks like a case of mistaken identity... I have never been to Fuddruckers in S. Dade, and  I'm not aware of any pictures.  I would however, be more than happy to list Dade County events & cruise nights.  Beside Broward County, I cover Dade & Palm Beach Counties as well.  All I need is for the information to be delivered or sent to me.  It's that simple.  I have asked for people to send me show post it here.  Anyone can send me links, or email me fliers in PDF or jpg formats.  Or just type out the info, times, dates, address & locations, host, etc, etc. and I will post it here.  This website's coverage is expanding fast, and I would be delighted to include your events, and offer the most thorough car show coverage in South Florida!    PS: please send more info on 'Fuddruckers Cruise'...thanks.

Comments: Gary & Karina, Ft. Lauderdale, Fl, 1970 Plymouth GTX... Hi Scott, We had a GREAT time at the Dream Car Classic show on Sunday. We have attended several car shows in the past but this was our very first as a participant. We just bought a 1970 Plymouth GTX 440 4-speed car, the color is "In-violet" and we are having a ton of fun with it! We named it "DEJASVU" because "back in the day", I had one almost identical to it and now we are doing it all over again! All the cars at the show were unbelievable. It's so nice to see the enthusiasm people have toward these cars and it is very refreshing to find how open everyone is in sharing ideas and knowledge. We met some new friends and hope to make many more. You did a great job (as always), keep up the good work! See you at the next show. Gary & Karina

Hi Gary & Karina!  It was a real pleasure to meet you both at the show!  What a GREAT car you have to do it "all over again" with.  We were honored to have it make it's 1st debut appearance at our show.  Your enthusiasm for your car at the show was refreshing.  Thanks for sharing it with all of us!  Take care...see you at the next show...

OOPS!!! bad!   The show was so big, & I had to keep running back & forth from stage where I was running the music to an incredible show field where there were so many different sections of cars.  I was sure I had photographed the Jaguars, but apparently I missed the "Early Models".

Thanks for finding us Greg.  I try to promote where I can.  I have a flier you can download as well.  This site is still relatively new, so many people are still finding out about it.  Word of mouth is the best advertisement, so tell your friends.  We really enjoyed your car at the Cheetah Show  Love that custom paint job!  Take care.

Thank Herb, for taking time out to contact me & express your feelings. I would disagree with you regarding low attendance as we had over 100+ cars at this "Hot Rod Sunday" show on a 'Superbowl Sunday', and many of the other shows continue to grow.   I am sorry though about your unhappy experience regarding the awards at Moroso.  I wish I could do something for you, but I have nothing to do with the judging, as I am just the DJ, and have no direct influence with Moroso's judging.  I have seen improvement as Moroso continues their commitment to make their car shows fun, fair, & the best they can be.  Moroso's judges have a tough job picking only 1 "Best of Show" winner.  Your comments are noted.  You have a "Best of Show" car without a doubt...take care!

Comments: Scott you outdid yourself again, the larger thumbnails worked out great. Looking forward to more of the same from the next car show.

Thanks, I found out I can display 300 pixel thumbs, and keep the file sizes about the same as the small thumbs, which should make page loading quick enough.  In the future, I will continue with the large thumbs, and also display larger 800 pixel pics as well.  Just a little "tech talk"!  Bigger is better!

Comments <edited>:  Hello Scott, thought i would check out your website.  You still like playing !!! <edit> great job! <edit> Your old friend,  Meri.

Thanks Meri for the trip down "memory lane".  Yea...some of us really never fully grow up.  Hey, I've added a new "feature" to the website just for you...when you feel like you miss Florida a little, just click on any picture with a palm tree in it, and a "virtual tropical breeze" will come your way!  It's a nice surprise & great to hear from old friends.  Take care!

Hello Scott, Your website is excellent! Much like everything else you do. When you take on a project, it's all about quality. Everytime I check it out, you've added something new. Musicman-Photoman-Webmasterman...the titles are endless. Keep up the great work! Love all the photos! Makes me want to get my "69" Camaro back on the road. Hopefully one day. So glad two middle school friends were reunited through the "Candle Lady." Thanks so much for all you help and your friendship! Happy and Healthy New Year to You and Diane! Tom Caminiti "The Tall Italian"

Thanks Tom, I feel fortunate to have had you as a life-long friend!  Get that Camaro going...and LET"S GO CRUISIN BABY!!
Happy New Year to you too!

Comments:  Clem Flanagan / 1988 Fiero GT with the LT1 engine. Scott it's hard to keep up with the almost daily (it seems)changes that you make to your web site. This has got to be the best site around for up to the latest in car show info.

Thanks Clem.  The website is mostly just a hobby for me, much like our love for our cars.  Thanks again for your help with the 'Miami Springs' show.

Comments:  Scott - it's coming along great! But the buttons up top aren't appearing. Let me know if you need help setting up a testing server, so you can debug your code prior to ftp uploading it to the hosting server. Taz7719 (Your Neighbor)

Now were talking "tech"!  The buttons on my site work much like the buttons in my '69 Chevelle...when they want to!  Can this "testing server" do anything to improve my "singing skills"??  Thanks Gilbert!
