Morris Lions Club Car Show Recap

Finally, friends here is the Morris Lions Club 26th Fall Classic Car Show in all it's finest.  My sincere apologies for the delay; I've been putting humpty dumpty back together and it took a bit longer than I had anticipated.  Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of the good stuff.  

I've heard about this show for many years but I've always had one conflict or another and could never make it out to Morris.  Let me say, I am so very happy that this year I was able to make it; what an all around great day.   The Fall Classic was a whole new crop of rides for me and that always makes for a fun and an interesting show.  It was Camaros and Coupes, T-buckets and T-Birds, 43 classes in total spanning all walks of the automotive spectrum.  With upwards of 900 rides filling Lyondell Basell Rec. Area it was an impressive show to say the least; add in the colossal swap meet and food vendors that would rival any state fair and you've got yourself a home run!  It's no wonder this show receives so much attention and has so many fans.

An added bonus for me was, I was invited to shadow my friends with the Chicagoland Covair Enthusiast Club while they judged the event.  They are the folks that put on one of my fav events of the year, the Orphan Auto Picnic,   This was a first for me and it was great to see how the judging process works.  I have to say a personal thank you to Frank and Larry for including me and for the great tutorial, additionally thank you for your patience with me and ALL of my questions.  It was a blast to see a show from a totally different perspective and I was extremely impressed with how organized and calm you were during crunch time.  Friends, I must add there was not a single complaint regarding the judging of the show and that's something to be pretty darn proud of considering there were nearly 500 cars that were judged.  Lastly thank you for gently nudging me toward the realization that not everyone can get a trophy.

Take a look at the eclectic mix of rides that were out at the show.  If you like what you see, check out the Most Recent Show gallery for over 300 shots from the Morris Lions Club 26th Annual Fall Classic.

Again, many, many , many thanks to Frank and Larry and the other great guys with the Chicagoland Corvair Enthusiasts for welcoming me so graciously, taking me around the show and answering my endless list of questions.  I had a great time and am already looking forward to the Picnic!

Stay tuned, I've got some tricks up my sleeve you don't want to miss.
