I planned on this last weekend when it was postponed. For anyone that hasn't been to an Americans hockey game or seen the Allen Events Center, this is a great opportunity to do so. Great venue and some fun, playoff hockey!

I wish it wasn't at the same time as Pinks. I really wanted to show and go to the game.

This ended up being a good show. Forty or so cars were there, with a good mix. Among the highlights were appearances by four AMCs, including two Javelins, an AMX and a Rebel.

I passed out flyers, though there were several other car show reps doing the same thing. Our flyer was by far the nicest, though, which hopefully will get us a few more attendees at Johnny B's.

Check it out, my Shelby GT is on craigslist. I was parked next to an El Camino at last weekend's Allen Americans show. Its owner put it up for sale on craigslist, and is using a photo that he took at the show. The front corner of the Shelby is visible. Kind of funny.
