I received this email regarding this event on the 20th:

This is Mike Marcum with Sunny 98.1 Radio here in Huntsville. I have put together a car show/get together on Saturday July 20th from noon to 3pm at Landers McLarty Chevrolet in Huntsville. I am inviting car clubs to come out and display their vehicles and also inviting the public to come by and look at the vehicles. I am promoting this event on Sunny 98.1. To any car club that gets back with me and says that they are coming, I will promote that club on the radio. I will have free food and drinks that day for everyone. This is my first time doing a car show/get together and I hope to do this every month until it gets cold. If youíre club is interested in coming, please get back with me and I will make sure that your club getís promoted on the radio.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you,

I probably won't be back to this one.
A stock/factory 2012 Challenger placed 1st in my class. Looked like they pulled it off the show room floor. I placed 2nd.. Like seriously?? Not mad bug these shows have judges that have no clue about cars.

Not meaning to pile on, here, but thats why I don't show mine there anymore. Last time we showed was 2 or 3 years ago and the same thing pretty much happened. They say they appreciate the feedback to better the show and learn how to make it a better show, but when they don't fix anything they obviously haven't learned anything. Give credit where credit is due...don't award stock vehicles awards when fully built custom vehicles in the same category are there and much more deserving. Maybe ideas about car shows get lost in translation. Is the point to build a show car, or is the point to stay as stock as possible?

Just to throw my thoughts in on this......I attended the first show they put on. I along with most of the cars were there by 10AM. There was a local car club with a couple members there and at about 1215 some more showed up. They were turned away due to cut off being at 12. At around 145 a big jacked up truck showed up, entered the show and won best of show, best truck and peoples choice. How can you win peoples choice and only be there for 15 minutes. I will never attend a show put on by Landers Dodge and I drive a Dodge.

I was speechless. I rather had got nothing than lose to a completely stock vehicle.

There's a whole lot of places around here that do the same thing. The show at Jeffs mufflers last night was a joke. Same few cars won again as last month, kids were running wild everywhere because their parents don't know how to raise them, and a basically new car with rims and eyelashes on the front beat out older, well taken care of cars for best of show. Not sure what these judges look for in a car, but I guess to me an older, well taken care of car is more impressive than a new one with some rims. Guess that's why I don't show my car at that many shows around here. Way too much favoritism.

Yep, that was us that were turned away.
This is the truck that showed up an hour and a half after registration was closed and won everything. It was 2009.

You are right on the money Jay, I didn't want to use any names just in case someone was offended.

So presentation and building/trying to build a unique car gets no credit? Thats the whole point of what Dre posted. I know the girl that owns the white charger you're talking about.



She is in the process of building it and has done everything to it herself. You have to start somewhere. Show cars aren't built overnight. You're not guaranteed a trophy at every show you attend, and if you're just there for a trophy, then you're there for the wrong reason. She didn't go out and buy a cookie cutter car and throw a bunch of auto zone accessories on it. There usually isn't a top quality turnout at Jeff's because the show isn't advertised very well, but if it were me judging that show last night, that Mercury would have taken best of show.

Well the fact that she won there last month as well doesn't help things. Of course you have to start somewhere, but it's easy to go buy a brand new car and put rims on it.....that's not building anything, my mom could do that. I don't have anything against her personally although she walks around with her nose so far up in the air, I'm surprised something hasn't fallen in it yet....lol. That's the main reason I never entered my camaro. It was a 2013, brand new off the showroom. I don't think it's fair to people with older cars, so I chose not to enter it. As for winning a trophy every time, I believe I even stated in my first post that I don't enter for that reason. I've got a shelf full of trophies, and frankly wouldn't want to win at every show because it's not fair to other people, but I'm sorry no one is ever gonna convince me that a brand new car should beat out a car that's well taken care of over the years. If you want my honest opinion I think they should be divided up into different categories according to the years and/or type of car. That would at least make it more fair to everyone. Thats my opinion and I'm not trying to seem like an ass to anyone, although I don't really care who doesn't like it, and it's nothing personal against her, because I don't know her and frankly judging by the way I've seen her strut around and act, don't want to

Last month she won one of the Top 10. I won Best of Show.
Shes actually pretty cool & speaks to me & my wife when she sees us. If she was struting or had her nose in the air maybe she was having a bad day lol

I've seen her at 3 shows so far. It must have been a bad day each time....lol. But like I said I dont personally know her, so it is what it is. I'm just going by what I've seen so far. I'm a pretty chill person for the most part, so it doesn't bother me either way, just an observation based on what I've seen up till now. Maybe she'll prove me wrong one day, until then Im gonna stand by my opinion, not to mention another one of my friends actually knows her, and seems to think about the same of her that I do. Oh well, to each there own I guess

And Jay, the reason you are on this thread was to state that the reason you didn't enter the Landers show was because of the way they judged certain vehicles, but when I basically said the same thing about Jeff's show you defended your friend. What's the difference? I feel the same about jeffs as you do landers, so it shouldn't matter just because it happens to be someone you know that won it.

03svtCobra.....who cares who wins.....it is all about supporting local shows. If nobody attends them they will go away. As long as the rules are followed I will continue to attend local shows. My only thing about the Lander's show is that don't turn way some cars and let some in. Either let everyone in or don't let anyone in. Knock off downing Jeff's show. It is a local show put on by Jeff, he is a great guy. Just because you don't win don't knock the show. Let it go already.........

I have a right to say whatever I feel. You say you will continue to attend local shows, but earlier you say you won't attend landers again....that's local. So which is it. I was already done with it until you said something. You have a right to feel how you do about landers, I have the same right to feel the same about Jeffs. No where did I ever say he was a bad guy...doesn't mean I have to agree with the shows
