LINC400 Posted May 25, 2015 Share Posted May 25, 2015 Yesterday I went to attend the AACA show at the Volo Auto Museum. I have been to this show before with my friend, and we have shown a car. For $10, the car is entered in the show and the driver and passengers get into the museum for free. Yesterday, my mom decided to go with at the last minute. When we got there, they charged $10 for the car, driver, and 1 passenger, and then wanted to charge $15 for me as the third person in the car. So I would have to pay more for just myself riding in my friend's car, than for the entire car and 2 people. I could have gone home, gotten my car, picked up a hitchhiker, and gotten in cheaper than riding in my friend's car that was being shown. We were even there with other friends showing cars, and they had to pay $9 for each child in the car because mom and dad got in free with the car, but they had to pay for the kids since they were additional people in the car. I thought these were supposed to be family friendly events encouraging children to attend??? I could see maybe charging $5 for each additional person, and kids free, but $15 and $9 was just ridiculous. Since I had no interest in seeing the museum, I refused to pay the $15. However, they would then not even allow me anywhere near where my friend's car was parked. So I could not get my sunblock, jacket, umbrella when it started raining, aspirin when I got a headache, or anything else out of the car. Last year a newer Chrysler 300 with scissor doors, 22 inch wheels, and tons of bolt on bling won a trophy at this same AACA show. I thought AACA was for stock antique cars??? That didn't bother me quite as much as the admission BS this year. But between the 2 things, I don't think there is any need for me to attend the AACA Volo shows in the future.
