Might be a cool show but I'm not feeling a 6 hr drive for a 5 hr show. If it was A 2 day show that would be different..

Make sure you get your facts straight before you go throwing out quotes like that. There happens to have been 26 cars show up to the show! Which is pretty good considering it's the first time for having a show in Panama City Beach. Even the big established shows like BugaPlooza doesn't have all the cars show up on the first day. To those that did show up THANKS for the support and hopefully we will do it bigger and better next year!

I really wish I could have made it down there to support you guys. I think to have 26 cars for the first show with only 2 months to get it together is pretty good. YU Buggin is on it's 4th year and it only had about 85 cars. Bugapalooza just had it's 13th year and had 200+ cars there. It takes time for shows to get established. Now Panama City has something else to offer that alot of the other big shows that have been going on for years doesn't have, the beach. There is also Friday Fest that happens the first Friday of every month. That is pretty awesome in it's self. Give it a chance, and it'll grow. Like most of them do. Good luck to you guys.

Thanks Tim!!! Wish you could have made it down also! The club will be planning a little more in advance for next years event and hopefully have it on the beach. This years event at Newby's was close but like you all mentioned it would be nice to have it ON the beach.This was really a test event to see if the response would be good. We all were excited to see the turn out. We had one guy bring his Thing in from Texas and several people from northern Alabama that made the journey. We also had several members from the Fort Walton Beach club Kusten Kreuzers make the trip over. Overall this was a good turn out and we look forward to next years event.

I heard from friends that left early because there were only 3 cars there when they left......we WOULD have made it down and supported the show but I had to work this weekend saving people's lives. We try to make all FL, GA, AL, TN, NC and SC shows. PCB is an awesome location for a show....with more advertising I'm sure it'll grow. Perhaps having a show for the first time on the biggest holiday weekend of the year might have held people back. I know several GA peeps that did not go because of the holiday crowds anticipated at PCB this weekend.

I for one have spent 4th of July, at PCB many times. I can't think of a better time for exposure of a car show.

I agree, I was just adding feedback that I heard from others prior to this weekend.....main complaint about the date was potential crowds and inflated hotel prices. That is all.

Im the one that gave Kat that info... It was true at the time... waited around an hour !! ! It wasn't worth the time if you were driving 6 hours just for the show ! Would I make this trip for the show (and Beach) again ?? YES !

Wait around in the Hot sun or go to the beach wiff my Hottie?? Twisted Evil

See you next year ! cheers
