Please don’t invite the owner of that silver Porsche back that blew everyone’s ears out every 15 min. couldn’t even have a conversation due to his ego stroking.

Such an amazing day!

Lucky 13!

Thanks to all that put this great event on today.

Wonderful event! We were a part of the Art Pavilion – Jim and Linda make it “so easy” to set up, display and breakdown. You know when it’s “easy” that means some folks have worked really, really hard!

Thank you ..a wonderful show

Hoping to attend next year

Another great job to all! It takes a lot to put this on!

Agree

it was an honor to have my car in such a great display of cars. looking forward to many more

Dayton really shines! My family and friends are never disappointed. Great memories. Thank you volunteers.

This is truly a wonderful event held in a wonderful venue.

Some day, I’d like to see this show!

Enjoyed it very much and looking forward to next year.

Great job as usual. Looking forward to 13!
