Carolina Motor Madness 2008

Carolina Motor Madness Car Show

     The 2nd annual Carolina Motor Madness Car show was held at the Charlotte Knights Baseball Stadium on Saturday March 29, 2008.  The weather wasn't exactly ideal, but the show turned out great anyway!  It was very entertaining to see the hundreds of custom car and restored car owners, including myself,  scramble to get all of there supplies packed into their rides when it started raining!  However, after the rain passed, the show cars were dried and looked better than ever when the judges finally made their way around to finish judging all of the awesome rides.

For the most part the custom show cars at this show were from the muscle car era with several tri-five Chevys, Novas, Impalas, and Mustangs.  However, there were also many custom cars from more modern times.  For instance, there were a lot of late model Chevrolet Corvettes, a ton of new Ford Mustangs, a few imports (but not many), and of course my Custom 96 Impala SS.  I saw a few Mini-Coopers and just a sprinkling of custom mini-trucks.

One thing that made this car show even better was all of the special events that were offered.  The  show featured a motor cycle burn-out competition, dyno runs, a sound off, and even a Hydraulic competition.  The attending car show sponsors  and vendors (Miller Light, Coors Light, Sound-on-Wheels, and Fort-Mill Ford to name a few) were giving away tons of swag (free stuff) to the car show participants.  The 50-50 drawing ended up being very valuable to the winners.  Even some Hooters girls showed up!  

The awards began right on time at 3:00 and although it was cold wet and windy, it was definitely worth it to wait for the awards.  The awards were not the usual fake gold plastic trophies, but instead the Carolina Motor Madness show offered etched glass plaques and free bottles of Maguire's Speed Shine.  I was awarded a Best of Show Award for my Impala SS which is a 10 pound bronzed eagle.  I was very happy to receive this special award!  

If you couldn't make it to the show this year, you really missed out on a lot of fun, but they will be back next year, and hopefully the weather will be a little better.  Please look through our show pics below to see some of the custom show cars and show trucks at Carolina Motor Madness.
