Southern hospitality, great weather, beautiful Chevys, and Bow-Tie fanatics from everywhere made the Montgomery Super Chevy Show just about perfect. Put that together with Nitro Coupes and fellow drag racers from the other classes burning up the asphalt, then throw in a swap meet where you could pretty much build a Chevy from the ground up, and this was a show to remember.

Chevys from all over the South were displayed under the bright sunshine and blue sky attracting large crowds of spectators. The swap meet is unique in that most of it is on grass, which makes for happy feet for the prospective buyers and a relaxed setting for the sellers. Unique cars graced the show area, including a perfectly restored '57 passenger car chassis with a fuel-injected small-block. Bright colors and graphics adorned numerous customs, especially one most unusual S-10 pickup featuring suicide doors. The Street Cruiser display continues to be a popular and growing show segment for street-driven cars that aren't all that interested in being judged.

Nitro Coupes were once again on the wild side. Led by Bill Kuhlmann who won the class, the times were edging towards the low 6s on the hunt for the elusive 5-second mark. Manufacturers and vendors brought their latest products and technology to the midway for all to see and admire. Overall, Montgomery is a Super Chevy Show for fast racers and serious show car people or, if you will, down-home diehards!
