My cousin mentioned this one to me. He said they had something like 1000 cars last year with classes covering everything and anything. They are also supposed to have a dyno and burnout competition.

I'll probably head down there as long as the cars running decent Saturday morning.

Any other takers?

That sounds like a good show. I'll probably go. Wonder how much dyno'ing costs? It'd be neat to see the difference between the stock and converted Cougs.

Not sure, but if you go and do the dyno, I must know!!:D
I'd do it, but my car would find a way to embarass me...:disappoin

Just some added info.
Registration 8-10
Show 10-4
Judging @noon
Awards @3

Due to the amount of time I need (have to take my car through emissions and prep it for the show), I will not be bringing the car to the show but am 95% sure I will be there as a spectator.

That was the largest car show I've seen in MD yet...

I was wondering what the UPS stood for - duh, UPS brown, as in the delivery company :D

Dyno's were $75 for two runs, bu you had to have your car inside the car show to try it..

By the look on the driver, Guess this car didn't have air bags.

That was a very good show. I got there about 3:00. I was late due to some unforseen problems.

To make a long story short I ran my car on 6 cylinders for the ride home from emissions because 2 plug wires decided to separate themselves from the plugs. While taking care of that problem I decided to work on some other things so I ended up getting a late start.

bondocougar- nice pictures. I'll get some of mine up when I have a chance.
That guy in the LSC, I think was from Waldorf. I met him in 2004 at the Carlisle Ford Nationals. It was cool to see him again.

Also there is a place in Dundalk that does dynoing for about 70 dollars. If I can remember exactly who it is I'll let you know. Cool thing is that you won't have a crowd of people watching your car run.

This GTO had probably the best paint.
