Well another one in the books folks! Due to the pandemic, attendance was down as expected, and was a low key event as there was no BBQ or awards this year.

It was interesting in that there were quite a few other 91-96 wagons there that were not part of our group (I spotted about 5). One was someone I know personally, but had his car in the for sale lot, another one that looked like a decaying tree with all the green mold on it (white woody). Someone from Jax Inc, who I didn't recognize, and wasn't there every time I went by, Another white woody that looked like the Daddy Wagon, and a Roadmaster that has parked with us in the past white with silver where the wood goes....

We had 7 wagons on our slabs, Roo's Yellow 'Vette, and Kid's RMS. 3-OCCs, 2- Chevys, and 2-RMWs (both woodless) so it was a woodless wagonfest! I have a couple pics on my phone, but not on my PC where I"m posting from.

I think this was the first year that no one broke down either! Last night 94 Woody, Fred K, Mark Roady, Roo and Black and myself kept up the steak tradition and went out to eat after the show at a steakhouse.

We noticed that Radioflyer's people (AMC club), had a grille going and they told me they do it every year, so next year the BBQ will be at the track I think!

Thanks to everyone that made it out and thanks to everyone who helped make space in my garage by taking some parts off my hands!

That sounds familiar, did they use similar pattern and silver color to what I did to ours?

Our silver is 2018 Kia color that is very highly metallic.  Looks almost white in the sun and a medium grey in the shade.  Mouldings removed but  followed them same area as the wood plus mouldings, execpt in the front where I took the silver down in front of the wheel and across the filler panel on the front bumper. Plus the sheep in wolf's clothing, non functional bulge hood WF FL ReCap 1f600

Yes, sans the hood and it still had the trim, but he polished it, so it popped well against the silver and white.

It was a beautiful, sunshine filled day. We got in and out quick and easy. Met a lot of good folks, learned a lot about B bodies and we turned on a number of passers by to this forum.

Thanks, that must have been interesting. He was lucky to have one with the trim good enough to polish, ours were all beat up. I wonder if he took it all off to polish? Ours were were really hard to get off without damage or broken clips. Once off you could see that there were probably some procedures that would have helped as some looked like a slide first then lift type thing.

I have seen lots of colors, but not any other silver ones, and never one with polished trim that way.

Had a good time. I think on-track BBQ would be great!

Like Sprocket said, much lower attendance (at least our group), but zero rain, almost too much sun, and a great time as always. You New England guys (you know who you are) better show up next year!

As long as there is a shaded area to cook.
