llI have been to the ALL GM show at Silver Springs (Ocala), Fl two times and really like the setting. There are 2000+ cars there most times and they have several different classes that have some vehicles as far back at the very early 1900s (or maybe even earlier). The basic classes are Camero/Firebird, Corvette, Trucks, and General. There are also subdivisions for the various production years. As an example, my car was assigned to the General Division and included all cars that did not meet the other specific classes from 1980 to the brand new just off of the dealer showroom floor (saw several with less than 100 miles on them).
I took a 1988 Mera both times and was fortunate enough to take Best Of Class each time. I do not expect it to happen a third time but it was nice seeing a Fiero version get recognition as a very nice car. BTW, the second time win was somewhat of a fluke. I ended up in second place behind a brand new Cadillac CTS with about 500 miles on it but the show has a policy of not making the award if the owner is not there. The CTS owner was nowhere to be found so they then called out my car and gave me the prize. It is also somewhat unique that there is only a Best of Class award and no second or third place awards (at least in my assigned category). The prize is an engraved crystal mug and I have put mine to practical use several times when sharing some exotic beer with my youngest son (also somewhat of a car buff).
Now I wounder if the WA show would admit a show quality Mera with a 3800 SC Series III engine swap and an F355 interior? It has performance, is rare, looks good, and does not meet the strict definition of a "kit car" since it is factory built and not sold as a kit.
