It's a go.. 11 months
True.. this is neither and both. It works for the 30th anniversary, and won't be a parking lot. Think more family picnic.It's always nice when a car show is tied in with another major event or large car show. Carlisle is special because it's conjoined with the Foreign Car Nationals and has tons of vendors, music, shops, other exotic cars, etc. Charlotte is special because it's at a race track with thousands of muscle cars to look at. I guess Springfield is also part of a major town car show. The best car shows that I go to near me are the ones in the middle of a town or at a town fair. Lots to look and shop at, eateries, and.....most importantly....... lots of people who aren't greasy grumpy car dudes. The worst shows I've been to are the ones that the only people who come to see the cars are the guys that entered the show. Just a whole bunch of car dudes in a parking lot in the middle of nowhere. Booooooooring!
Its apartments like many other citys areas where the industrial section is on the rivier is getting built with a lot of apartments. Sadly after next years show an apartment complex will be being built in front of the brewery.. ( blocking about 50% of the skyline view ) The area on the other side of teh brewery where a truck spring shop is will also be bulldozed and replaced with apartments. While good for business they are on very valuable land, and it wouldnt surprize me within 5-10 years they move the brewery and sell as well.Is that large building in the background of the last pic a motel or condos/apartments? Wow, if that was a motel, then folks coming to the show could get rooms right at the show and even overlooking it.
