Has it been 25 years already? For those not in the loop, the Super Chevy Shows have been running for 25 years in a row, thanks in large part to Roger Gustin and his crew who have kept the Super Chevy flame alive by taking the torch and running with it. What a run this year has been! Did you know that next to the NHRA the Super Chevy Show drag racing circuit is one of the largest in the nation? That's a lot of cars running down the track.

As we mentioned in our Gainesville show coverage, the Super Chevy Shows start and end in Florida. What makes the year's-end show a cut above the rest is the banquet held on Friday night.

Behind the scenes of each event, there is a conglomerate of personalities, racers, showman, advertisers, financiers, and plain, hardworking people who make all this happen. One man or woman can't do it alone, so a banquet is held in honor of all the behind-the-scenes cast and crew. Rather than show you eight pages of people sitting at a table eating, we decided to do something a bit different. We wanted to show you the action, essence, and hard work of all the Super Chevy Shows from 2005. Sit back, enjoy, and we hope to see you next show season.

It's better to burn out than fade away! Surfers use Sex Wax and racers use that is. For that ultimate stick and traction, there's nothing like a big, nasty, billowing burnout. We hope you enjoy this collection of burnout shots, just as much as we enjoyed being there when it happened.

After the burnout comes, it's that decisive moment in time-the moment the light turns green. You're either in the zone or you go home. Your tires wrinkle under the amount of torque being applied, and the front end launches like a rocker, all in a split-second. Here we find a collection of some serious hang time shots.

Classic collectors. We realize that Chevrolet has a long and amazing history of producing some of the finest-looking cars that ever did roll down the streets and highways of America. At every Super Chevy show, we get to see some of the best-looking, well-preserved, and mostly customized Chevys. Here is our homage and tribute to all those fine-looking automobiles that don't always get the coverage they deserve.

Color me crazy. I once heard from a die-hard Chevelle fan that there is "red and all them other colors." Beauty indeed is in the eye of the beholder. Check out these three bad boys all lined up and RED. While you're at it, take a look at all the other colors under the rainbow. From wild and mild, to comical and crazy, what does your car's color say about you?

The great indoors. I'm sure we have all heard it's not what's on the outside, but what's on the inside that counts. The creativity and craftsmanship that goes on the outside of our cars can also be inside. We spotted all of these at Super Chevy Shows across the country.
