All proceeds help pay Huntsville Car Scene bills.


Even with the weather being pretty iffy for the day, over 150 cars and trucks came out to show. And by the peak of the day, the clouds started burning off and the sun was burning us, lol. Landers was hoping for more entries than last year, but considering the weather forecast for the day, and the smaller crowds at some of the area's larger events, the show had a better turnout than I would have expected.

This year, a lot of different organizations were a part of the event--Rocket City Mustang Club, Tennessee Valley Mopar Club, Vets with Vettes to mention a few. This kept things running smooth, and just shows the potential of the scene if we all work together for one cause. I want to especially thank the Rocket City Camaros for helping me with my event coverage.


I made some new friends including 240girl11 who took the time to pose with some of the cars, bikes, and the monster truck. She had a lot of fun, so maybe we'll see some more of her.


And then, of course, some of the guys had to give it their best to do the same. I don't think they realize they don't need to pose like the girls do.


The heat wasn't as bad as the last few weekends thanks to the cloud cover and the food and water kept everyone energized all the way to the awards ceremony and the giving away of the grand prize--a Chevrolet Camaro.

Enjoy the pics and videos and I'll see everyone next year!

I went to this show last year. Nice turn out but it was a joke. I wont waste my time going back to it. They made a special exception to the registration cut off, hour and a half after cut off they let a truck in that eventually won it all. That to me is not fair and dont want to be a part of a show like that. Just my opinion.

I know they had some organizational issues since it was a first time event for a brand new dealership. This happens to any first time event. I'd go check it out this year and see if you see the same problems or if they've fixed them. It's still great to be a spectator event at badly organized shows.

Samir I would normally agree with you, but the show was actually put on by veterans in the show scene. They know what they are doing or atleast you would assume they do. Hopefully it goes better this year. They really should contact Showstopperz to put on their show instead of who they used last year. I know Jay would keep thing fair.

Unless you have a big jacked up truck then you can show up whenever.....Sorry for the sarcasm but it still ticks me off that they bent the rules. I was sitting with a group from Vibe and 3 or 4 of their member were turned away at 12:30.....

who did they use last year?? I thought they put it on themselves??
I usually go to donate to the cause, check out the peeps and vehichles and for the door prize(s).
Now if it's like the show in Decatur last year that also has some sorta cook-off then I'm in there for the trophy..the cook-off trophy. :-)

The weather looks pretty clear right now, although overcast. I think rain will hold off until the afternoon. Once the air starts to cool up high, then the clouds should form pretty quickly. I think we'll be good up to 2pm at least.

Yep, this show had a lot of different organizations stepping up to the plate--Rocket City Mustang Club, Tennessee Valley Mopar Club, Vets with Vettes to mention a few. Landers was hoping for a larger turnout, but considering the weather and what I saw at Point Mallard as a reflection of the economy, the show turned out better than I would have expected.
