Title: 2018 Regional Shelby Meet - Wow!! What a great weekend
Post by: Cobrask8 on September 17, 2018, 09:20:00 AM
It's Monday morning, I'm tired, but a happy tired. Piles of boxes in my house to go through!

BUT!!! Looking backwards, it was another GREAT weekend, the 9th Annual. The hotel this year was brand new, In Center Valley, right next to the Car Show location at Penn State LV Campus. Fantastic hotel, great food, room for trailers, perfect hosts. The tour was another new one with special stops at a baseball stadium, Eastwood Products for lunch, a Hillclimb in Reading, and a spirited last leg back. 89 miles of fun.

Saturday night at the NB Center was fantastic again! Top notch food and facility, and this year we enjoyed the Movie "The Gumball Rally" outdoor drive-in style.

Sunday's Car show was nothing short of unbelievable! All quality cars of every sort of High-Performance Ford, All years of Shelbys, New & Old Mustangs, Replicas, more. The weather was sunny, and not a frown to be found. We'll be making a donation to Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia for this year's Charity.

Just a great weekeknd, and if you were not with us, you missed a great weekend with a fun bunch of people.

Pictures will be posted, and on the Region's Facebook page are posted pictures, videos, and feedback. Take a look!

I saw your postings on facebook over the weekend and I am sorry I couldn't be there.... Looks like it was a great show.

The Sunday show was great gathering of friendly owners with beautiful cars. I wasn't expecting to get sunburn, but it was a clear blue sky day up near 80 degrees. I'll post some pictures as soon I can get them downloaded.

Thanks to everyone who puts this together.

The folks that put on this event do an outstanding job!  Seems someone even has control of the weather. :o

Just some random pictures from Sunday.

Hi Ruben,
No one was around while I was taking photos in the early AM. The car was gone by the time I got back over to that section later in the day.
It had an all black interior (cloth seats?) and a PA vanity plate.

I'd bet money it's the Cena car, but who knows.  It's a shame, as I'm guessing the car will always be connected to John Cena.

IT IS NOT  the Cena car.   Belongs to a friend of mine that ordered it new .  he drives it anytime he can and has been to a hand full of events this year displaying the car.

I had plans to go but with the upcoming Tropical storm a bunch of us huddled our cars and trailer in a bundle away from trees and structures. Needless to say, we had nothing, but mine was the first one in the bunch and was surrounded by two trailers and two motorhomes. Couldn't get it out
Next year I plan on going to the whole thing and even get a hotel reservation in time \
Its like a mini SAAC convention without the pressure

I have posted my pictures of the event on the LVSAAC website.  Take a click over to see them.

www.lvpasaac.com

I have also posted the winners of our trophies (may not be posted just yet as I sent them to our web guy this morning).

We were extremely fortunate to have great weather.  Overcast on Saturday which was just fine for a driving event as it wasn't too hot and hard on the eyes.  Then bright blue sunny sky on Sunday which around this area has been rare this summer.  The event turned out great.  Only one person got seriously lost on the drive but we got him guided back using one phone to talk to him and another phone to googlemap where he was to talk him back prior to us driving the Pagoda hill climb road.  Dinner food was fantastic, weather was perfect to sit outside in a lawn chair to watch the movie (popcorn included).  Sunday car show brought out a good number of older cars which was soooo good to see. 

Enjoy the pictures.......
