Carlisle Performance & Style always brings the crowds with over 1,500 custom compacts tuners, modern muscle cars, VIP sedans, SUVs, mini trucks and more on the Performance and Style Show field. And this year was no difference, Joy Abdalla of Olney, Maryland took home Best of Show and a trophy that was as tall as she was, hundreds of awards were handed out, the StarBoyz tore it up and you helped make Carlisle Performance & Style one of the best shows of its type on the East Coast in 2012! This year's new drive through judging also allowed you to hang with your crew and enjoy the weekend at your own pace. If you won something, you likely already know, but just in case, check out the 2012 Winners List.
The Marin Sonoma Concours D’Elegance also had a great event this month. Starting with the Chairman’s Dinner & Auction on May 18, followed by The Marin Sonoma Concours Tour D’Elegance on Saturday May 19, and rounding out the weekend with the Marin Sonoma Concours D’Elegance on Sunday. Absolutely an amazing weekend, check out the winners list, you will love the 1939 Delahaye Type 165 Cabriolet.
If you love the Volkswagen, then you missed a great show presented by Bugorama. The Sacramento Bugorama is like no other VW event in the World… The car show was bigger and better this year, with a ton of stock and custom VW’s. If you have never seen VW drag racing, then you are missing out on some good racing. This show also brought out countless vendors and endless people to the swap meet… If you can’t find what you need here, then you don’t need it!
Finally, a little something for the drivers… Rich and Jean Taylor of Vintage Rallies presents The New England 1000. Celebrating 2O years of driving fun with Special Gifts, Prizes and Surprises! They started a full week of driving outside Stowe, Vermont, then on to The Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. They drove north and east through the beautiful rural countryside, making their way to Mount Washington Hotel at Bretton Woods. The last day of driving, they climbed Mount Washington, the highest point in New England, then rally through Smuggler’s Notch back to Stowe Mountain Lodge for overnight and the 2Oth Anniversary Gala. Sounds like they had a blast.
