Streetwise Drift & Drop Jaw Magazine Custom Car Show

 
Charlotte Motor Speedway

The Streetwise Drift Pro Am Challenge and Drop Jaw Magazine Custom Car Show was held at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC on 04-17-10.  It was a pretty exciting atmosphere over there at the speedway. After I pulled up, and got my Impala set up and detailed in the huge center area of the speedway, I could hear tires screeching to my left, stereos bumping to my right, and all the while,  Nascar racers were doing practice on the huge oval track surrounding us all!  Kind of hard to concentrate, or even hear what your friends are trying to say to you with all of that going on!

The weather was absolutely perfect for a car show like this!  The pollen this time of year tends to make dark colored cars turn a sickly green color, but we all had our dusters out to keep our rides shining in the sun.

Maybe someone needs to make a North Carolina Car duster instead of us all using California Car Dusters. Ours would have to be twice as big with the dust our cars and trucks collect during this time of year!

Although there were several very nice show cars on display, to be honest the show didn't have the turnout (number of show cars) that was hoped for.  This show was only advertised for for three weeks and sometimes, that just isn't enough time for the word to spread, according to Drop Jaw.  Drop Jaw did announce that they would be back to give this another try with the Street Wise Drift Crew in June or July for a similar event at the Zmax Dragway.  I had a Great time at the show and will definitely be back next time.  My Impala was awarded the "Jaw Dropper of The Show Award," and I was very honored to receive such a special award at a home-town show!

I started to get hungry after I saw this donk bubble roll into the show.  A lot of detail work went into the trix cereal images on this car to make them look realistic

The custom front grille on this Donk Caprice only added to the flavor!
