Matt, yeah, what Bob sez.
Although, for some reason I thought I had been entered in pre-'68 daily driver class (I did put down the codes for C-body and daily driver on my entry form, but I didn't make the connection that the number on my entry referred to the class they put me in...duuuuuuuuuuuh )

It was a gorgeous day for it, too.  I'll post a few pics later.

You just need to be a little more prepared Moe!  All you need is a sign like this
 

and a few directional arrows to areas other-than the show grounds
 

 
You'da had first place hands-down
 
Seriously, CONGRATS to you both!

Here's a few pics from the event


Scotty eventually ended up in the upper left corner...I should have parked there, but I had a mental hiccup..oh well






This '79 Magnum (360/904) was the OLDEST car in the 1975-up class...everything else was either a 300, Magnum wagon or a new Challenger

Nice Charger in the 318 class, the Satellite next to it had a 318A engine with aluminum finned valvecovers and dual quads!


Another neat Plymouth in the 318 class


This Plymouth was in the '64 and earlier daily driver class...there were only 2 cars total.

OK, now THIS is a gen-u-wine 1971 EX CHP car, that the owner bought after it was retired from training duties.
The A/C has been removed, as was the Leece-Neville alternator.  It also has a vacuum operated valve at the back of the aircleaner that is the SAME as an Airgrabber, which makes sense if this car was used to patrol the Southeast border (Barstow) of California to the Southwest (East San Diego).

440hp with single snorkle aircleaner, manual drums.  The owner told me that not too long ago, he had this car at a CHP event, and a sargent was with him when a corporal pulled up in a Crown Vic with a 4.6l.

The guy in the CV made  some noise about the Phord being able to whip the Polara, and the sgt asked if he'd like to make a bet on it, with the loser buying 2 steak dinners at his favorite swanky steak house.

The bet was taken, and the owner asked if he could ride shotgun.  So, a section of I-5 (major NS Freeway on the West Coast) two consecutive exits on either side closed off, and a cop with a radar gun was positioned at an overpass near the last closed exit.

They positioned side-by-side, the CV took off, and after waiting a few seconds, the sgt took off after him in the Polara.

I was told that the CV hit it's limit at 127mph, at which point the Polara got next to him, the sgt waved bye-bye, and then accelerated past him.  The radar gun recorded the Polara at 145mph, with more to go!

Gotta love it!

This is a CHP spec steering wheel, and it's not White, but a Pearlescent.  And the owner asked a restorer about getting this re-done, but was told "I can do it White, or translucent with glitter like the early 1960's Chysler wheels, but I cannot do this wheel to it's original color."

Here's a panel Dodge that was entered into the Under Construction class...blown Chrysler Hemi Firepower!

The white wheels on the cop cars were so they didn't get hot in the sun. I would fill the cracks and paint it pearl white. I have that same rare optional full horn ring for my Roadrunner...only saw one once in Motor Trend's test of the Car Of The Year 1969 RR

It was a nice show, and I had a good time spending the day with Moe.  Also, the '69 Charger and the guy standing next to it are friends - that's Chris Grundt of Wasco, a good guy and a member of my church.
