2012 Super Chevy Show - Virginia

Bring Out The Big Guns

By Rod Short, Photography by The Authors

Once again for 2012, the Virginia Super Chevy Show was a treat to attend. With a field full of unique and interesting show cars to check out, rows and rows of swap meet booths to scour for hidden treasures, and impressive duels taking place on the Virginia Motorsports Park quarter-mile, co-author Rod Short and I didn't get a chance to catch our breath till the following Monday.

We dodged a threat of rain over the weekend, and the fans still came out in droves to see all the action. So many people were flooding through the gate on Saturday morning it took us 45 minutes just to get inside. The Gold Class was packed with six cars of impeccable quality chosen by the judges, and picking contestants for our AMSOIL Best of the Best competition, presented by Danchuk and Classic Muscle, wasn't an easy task. And the Revell Make-N-Take was on site, giving kids a chance to build their first Chevy, and plant the seeds of inspiration for the future car building generation. c=
