B.O.P.C. Car Show In Atlanta Today

Recommended Posts

Buick, Olds, Pontiac, and Cadillac show. Just thought I'd let you guys know about this. I just found out myself yesterday. I didn't think it was this early in the year. I really wanted to take my car this year but alas, she's still in pieces. Anyway, the show opens at 9 AM. The chance of rain today is 90% but this show is rain or shine(I emailed them to make sure). The rain is sure to cut down on attendance but the wife and I are going to grab our coats and umbrellas and go anyway. Hope to get some pictures. If you're not doing anything and you're reasonably sure that you won't melt, come on out. There were a lot of amazing Buicks there last year. Here's the address:

That would have been a nice one to go to. Unfortunately we had a yard sale to go to...decluttering and cleaning out the house getting ready to move to Okinawa.

Well Brian, normally you would be correct but not only did the rain "cut down on attendance" it all but completely killed it. My Wife and I got there a little after 10 and there were perhaps 10-12 cars there. 3 of them Buicks. 2 Wildcats and a Skylark I believe. It was steadily raining as we walked around getting wet from sideways rain and trying to keep our umbrellas from collapsing in the wind. I managed to get one picture before it began to really pour and I had to put my camera away. Quite a disappointment. I really wish they would have had a rain date for this show. Last year it was an amazing show. There had to have been close to 200 cars there last year. So we hung around for about 20 minutes then drove an hour back home cold and wet. Oh well. It was worth a look anyway. I couldn't pass up a Buick show....:rolleyes:

Glad I didn't go then...would have been disappointing to drive three hours for that. However, with a forecast like that I probably wouldn't have gone anyway.
