Default Car Show at Black Diamond

There's an exclusive area in this part of Florida called Black Diamond. They put on their 2nd annual car show with 200 cars invited. You had to submit a picture of your car for entrance and the fee was $30. With that, you received a nice embroidered golf shirt and an 8X10 of your car taken by a professional photographer in front of a world famous quarry on the golf course. The cars themselves ranged from an XKE to a Rolls Royce and everything in between with Corvettes of all years making a large contribution. Supposedly judging was by professionals but most of the preople I spoke with said they only spent 1 or 2 minutes (if that) looking at most of the cars. I'm not sure of the judging criteria but I didn't win nor most of the people in my Corvette club.

Here are some pictures from the show and the picture I got from the professional:

I'm surprised they would let us bottom feeder Corvette owners in there!

Just kidding, very cool place. Tiger Woods shot a few Buick commercials in there back in the day. I'll need to head back up that way sometime.

Gorgeous setting for a show. Your car looks great!

The shirt and photo alone are worth a lot more than $30, so it looks like that was a pretty nice bonus.
