21st Annual Mid-Atlantic Chevelle Show

ACES North East Regional (Page 2)


     Of course we had our favorite DJ “Kra-Z” on hand to keep us “dancing” to the music.  Wait...that was the Hula Hoop contest...In any case, he was busy doing his “thing”, spinning the tunes, recognizing the sponsors and doing what he does best ... acting KRA-Z! Not sure he knows any other way!


     As we are continuously tweaking the show and striving each year to make it better, it was decided that we would try judging on Saturday only.  Same rules, same judging criteria.  This would hopefully give the folks working the show more time to actually enjoy it.





     John Truman from Truman Muscle Cars gave a seminar on how the rear end of a ‘71 Chevelle is put together. Starting with all of the sheet metal on the ground, John meticulously placed and clamped it all together.  When he was done, it definitely resembled the rear of a ‘71 Chevelle. Slide a frame under it and bolt it down, well almost!  All of the sheet metal used in the demo is readily available.





     Judging was completed just around 2 P.M. MCC President Fred Gillis and “Daddy” Fig made the rounds in the “wannabe” Chevelle to ensure none of the cars had been missed.  Not as quick as his ‘66 SS 396, but much better on gas!

     Debbie Radcliff-Borsh spent time updating current member information and signing up new members, while Sharon Sively sold tickets for the dinner.





     Cathy Fig (below) gave away a ton of door prizes...an aluminum manifold/Holley Carburator, Jet Hot Headers, Hotchkis performance parts, car wash kits, and quite a few gift certificates just to name a few.









     Just about 3 P.M. it was time for the Saturday closing ceremony. MCC President Fred Gillis has Kra-Z make the announcement and everyone started to make their way up to the gazebo. Fred started by introducing the MCC club officers and thanking all of those who had helped with the show. He also gave thanks to all of the sponsors for their generosity and the participants for attending. Seventeen of the nineteen Crystal Class winners were present and were called up to receive their special awards.


     Next was the TH-350 Transmission give-a-way (donated again this year by Steve Powell - Thoroughbred Transmissions).  Each MCC Member that participated in the sponsorship contest received one entry for each $200 denomination they raised.  The ticket was pulled, Malea Daughton was the lucky winner!  Congratulations!










     After the show, we had about just about an hour to get ready for the cruise and dinner.  Some met back at the show field and others waited at the Comfort Inn to join the cruise line as they came by.  The cruise was a very relaxing ride through some of the country that still exists in this part of MD, lasting about 45 minutes.  The final leg of the cruise took us back through the town of North East ending at the park.  Spectators lined the streets to see what the heck all that noise was coming down the way. MMM... the sweet sound of Chevy Horsepower!.

     When we arrived back at the park, you could smell the cooking of G&G Catering. What more could you ask for? Pit Beef, ham, turkey, chicken, potato salad, baked beans, and much more.  Turnout was a little lighter than expected, so there was plenty of food for seconds and even thirds! For seven bucks it was quite the deal.
