2012 WNY Car Shows
Permalink Closed


It's time to start figuring out time to take off for car shows that really should not be missed! I'll put down the ones I'm positive of the dates:

June 3rd-  MG Car Club show, Farmington, NY

June 9-10 - Street Machines of Rochester, Dewey Latta park, Greece, NY

July 6th- Friday night show at Paddock Chevrole, Kenmore, NY

July 14th- Chevelle Nationals-Grand Island, NY

July 20-22- Syracuse Nationals, Syracuse, NY

July 28th- Spencerport Canal Days, Spencerport, NY

When is the big show for us here, Aug 4th or Aug 11th? I haven't looked at that post yet. Edit, just looked this is on hold currently until we know when the Spiedefest is.

August 18th or August 25th- Summer in the City, Batavia, NY

Sept 1st- Olcott Beach, Olcott, NY

Oct 6th- Hilton Applefest

 

I know I'm missing a bunch. I'm not real concerned with the shows later in the season, just want to make sure I have all of my time in for June-August before all of the time gets taken. Also going to Spring Carlisle on April 27th (one day trip down and back).

MG show I'll probably be at (although I have to figure out when we are celibrating Kassie's b-day)
Street Machines is a possibility
Paddock is a possibility.. need to know when we are caming for the 4th
Don't own a Chevelle, are Montes allowed?
Won't be at the Nats due to that is Super Chevy Weekend
I'm sure I'll be at Canal Days
Spediefest is up in the air now. With the LI crew coming to Olcott, Binghamton may not be a weekend, although Dave and I have tossed around just going on Sunday, since it's more geared for us
I NEED to be at Batavia this year... no if's and's or but's!!!!
Will be a Olcott
and will be at Applefest/

Dave also make note of Watkins Glen opening day, end of April!!!
I'm sure there are others that I will be at.

Dave, that show has been moved around so much in the last few years. It used to be the 3rd Saturday of July, then it got moved up to July 4th weekend, hen it was in September, last year I think it was in June. I haven't seen it posted anywhere yet, so as soon as I find out I'll post it.

OOOO good find Matt, I didn't know about that one. That's a nice venue there especially on Friday nights. Might have to squeeze that show in too.

He's right about the Windmill one and the rainy/soft field. I never actually have gone to that show, but we went down there in the fall with my sister in law and pretty much got stuck in the field with their Navigator. Had to use 4WD to get outta there!

I'll have to see what is going on, I know my sister has a graduation in there, and some little kid birthday parties. I'd like to try the ESL swap meet. Never been there before.

Just got this in an email.

2012 Car Show Update
Unfortunately, due to a number of unexpected issues, the MG Car Club regrets that there will not be a Sports Car and Vintage Auto Festival in 2012.
We are working to resolve these issues over the coming year and we hope to be in contact with you again about the future of this event.

Thank You for your support of our forty years of past car shows.

That was a nice show. That is too bad. Hopefully they will have it next year.

Tim - I guess we can't do that skit of playing baseball in the middle of a car show, lol.

 One of my favorite shows. I am sure we will be there early so we can all park with each other. We will have to make a plan so we can all cruise in together.

Dave Sr. is in charge of the meeting place, I believe it will be Bob Evans just off the 90 again.

last year we had about 8 cars, maybe this year we'll have more!

I heard from Dave today, He says we will probably meet at Bob Evans for 10:30, then cruise in as a group again like last year. Can't wait, Hope the weather looks good.

On a side note, I will have to leave by 4 this year, Matt is going to the races and I need to spend some time with Diana before she goes to work.

It was a great day for the show....My Family and I made it there in our Monte , along with my buddy Jimmy in his '88 Mustang GT ( 10 second street car) and we got there kinda late...on our way through Avon to Caledonia Jimmy spun a belt and got the stang a lil hot so we had to back pedal to Avon Auto Parts for a new belt..We got there and were directed to Jackson St. to park...... I sawe a small handful of Montes's ( various years, mostly 81-88) parked along Main St...Saw a few National Monte Carlo stickers but no NYMCC....If I missed ya guys, sorry bout that...But it was a great day for a cruise:)

Joe, We saw you roll in, but by the time we got to your car you guys had disappeared, We stopped by a few times but nobody was around. Sorry we missed you.

We were all lined up in front of the Red Cross place. 6 montes in a row. But since there was no place to hang the banner, we just left it in the car.
