this is my second time missing out in the last 10yrs...i honestly dont care much for it any more since all the good shit is happining thru the week...not all of us are retired and can go hang in during the week!! i liked it before the mayhem and riotst
It is running all week in part becasue the Swap Meet has had a big fubar over the past couple of years and the operator now has another meet at ARCO arena in Sacto on Aug. 2, then the some of the vendors go up to Reno and set up up there.
I went for about 10 years in a row.
In my opinion, the theme has gotten away from fun with the cars (no more Virginia St. Cruise due to the gangbangers). What is left is Power-Parking. The organizers are focused more into attracting people into the casinos and other businesses.
But this is just my opinion.
Sparks and their effort to make it work at all is what has drawn me and mine up there since they closed Virginia 4 (?) years ago. When the wife and I sat down and tried to plan out where we were going with the '40 this summer, we just couldn't get jazzed about it again.
Even though we only live about an hour and 10 away.
