Reports are coming in that this show was an “Ada Boy” Show. The Ruston Antique Car Club was the host and it looked as if you were not part of their circle of local friends, you would not be recognized. When a Corvette wins a second in the MUSCLE CAR CLASS you know things have gone south. Anyone that has been in the hobby any amount of time knows a Corvette is classed as a Sports Car not a Muscle Car. More and more of these shows are popping up and I’m finding that these festival shows are just a means to draw a crowd and really don’t promote the hobby. The show had approximately 100 cars and I was told the show was very spread out. Entry fee for the show was $25.00 (included lunch & event T-shirt) and entry in the festival was $5. Since I didn’t attend and don’t have complete details on the show I will not do a complete review. According to sources that attended, they said “I can’t wait to MISS this show next year!” If anyone took pictures at the show please forward to M3. Here is the Louisiana Peach Festival website if you would like further details on the Festival and other Events. Anyone that attended this show feel free to comment.
