Default Pictures from Hendrick Motorsports Car Show

Our club hosted a charity car show at Hendrick Motorsports this past weekend and Bloomington Gold was there too. Here's some pictures of the car show and of the cars being judged. Enjoy!

My '70 is in this group:



Beautiful '54:






A great looking '82:



'77 coupe:



One of the Bloomington cars being judged:






Rich Hendrick's L88 being judged:






'71...not an LT1 though...



For this reason:












A really cool retro truck:




And what are the thoughts on this?

Hi RMV,
Some very nice looking cars!

I didn't realize BG had branched out beyond their June Event. I see this is their second year in Charlotte.

"And what are the thoughts on this?"
The fellow in the background looks like he's holding on to his hat in order to keep his head from exploding.

Thanks for posting the pictures!!!
Regards,
Alan

BG committed to 5 years so we'll have them again! So many C2's were being judged!























Another one of Rick Hendrick's cars:

Much better weather than the northern show this year!

Great pictures, lots of friends in them! Too many recognizable cars too!

Thx!

While I like the ride and drive of a C3 over a C2, those mid years just make me drool!

Hi RMV,
Thanks for the additional photos.
Pretty terrific looking cars!
Regards,
Alan

It appears 50 year old cars can still clean-up nicely!

Ther's some seriously nice vetts on show there. I had to replace my keyboard I was drooling
so much, haha. I quite like the C7, but find myself just a little short of funds to be able to
afford one.

You could tell the cars being judged by Bloomington Gold were all trailered. All were such nice cars. Not sure I want my car gone over like they do where they take things apart just to look at a number... there's too much wrong with mine!

Anyway, they'll be back next year so if anyone is in the area come on by!
