Is This Spot Taken? KTHXBYE.

Car shows are always great time, but the Broke Down 2011 car show flipped my world inside out, wrapped it in hickory smoked bacon, and then dipped it into an enthusiasm bisque. It was 1000+ cars, thousands of great people, fantastic music, and delicious food.  Oh yea, there were some cars there too.  Tons of people took far better pictures than I will ever be capable of and posted them on the Broke.Down facebook page.  If you have a few dozen hours to use up, I recommend flipping through some of the albums that are on there (at your own risk of course!)

Now, you may be saying to yourself “Jeremy, did the wacky chameleon painted Karmann Ghia make it to the show?”  Well, no. However,  it wasn’t due to lack of effort, that’s for sure. Let’s just say that the ol’ KG automatic stickshift input shaft seal wasn’t quite ready for 1600cc’s of spiciness.  That’s a story for another day though.  Who knows, I may even have some pictures!
