  1. This was a great car show, thanks to Aaron and his team. If shops and dealerships want to get young people involved in cars, car shows are the best way for them to learn about it, they love it.

  2. Great column, Scott. Your personal relationship with your LeMans is good story. Do you know what happened to it? I’m going to promo your column in my BOLO this evening. And lots of people name their cars. Who was your prom date? And the little child with you?

  3. Ah, the stories of our youth. My first “new” car was a 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon. While not planned, I jumped that monster across Chamblee-Tucker Road in Atlanta, with my buddy Ken riding shot-gun, screaming like a little school girl. Yeah, I too, miss that car. BTW: GTO DID stand for Gas, Tires, and Oil. My Cutlass’ name was “Beauregard the Wonder Car”, after the survived jump.
