An Angel That Flies To Montgomery

It Was Actually The Super Chevy Show, But We Did Fly

We thought of that old song that says, "Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery" as we rolled into Alabama from Houston, and began to enjoy the great weather and people. Of course, our version is that we're going "to," not "from" Montgomery, and why not? We are always treated right when visiting this beautiful city in the heart of the south, and the Chevy fans bring out their latest and greatest new rides and racers.

The bracket racing folks absolutely packed the joint this year, with a couple of teams setting up their pits at the extreme "big end" of the track. Show cars were outstanding, as well, with Camaros leading the way. We'll have a few of them to show you as feature cars, in the months to come. Proving that if you ask a question you should be prepared for the answer, we caught up with Randy and Jennifer Caldwell of Tullahoma, TN, after first meeting them at Indy this year. They own a very nice '69 Camaro, and Randy had asked Editor Terry Cole and the author about our impressions of their "pride and joy" while at Indianapolis.

Our first response in such situations is to advise the owner that what we tell him might upset him, but we would give our honest opinion (if he wanted it). Since the car was about 99 percent of the way to being "feature car" quality, Randy wanted to hear what we thought. We told him, Randy accepted it, and when the car showed up at Montgomery it had been changed to incorporate what we talked about. We did, in fact, take photos for a possible feature. Of course, that doesn't always happen, and it's no guarantee of a car being considered as a feature, but it does say that car owners and builders need to keep an open mind.
