Who wants to see some more?
I'll take that as a "yes".

Here's batch 7 with some more very nice and unusual vehicles at the show.
Enjoy....

The big problem with a show like that here is the public, they do not have the enthusiasm that the Europeans have. Those people LIVED it they were on the lines, behind the lines and under the lines. Over here we have no idea what it is like to have our country be over run and taken over by a fascist regime. And then to be liberated. They will never forget that. The people over here just don't get it, never will I am afraid. Till it is too late.

Look at your show, or any other military show in this country and tell me who is there? It is other military show people. They own trucks or know people there that own trucks. You can count the number of public that come in off the street at the biggest shows as at best maybe a couple hundred.

Then things are a lot different in Fla.than in most other places where the shows are hurting. There was just a write up in one of the mags about that. I am all for it and I wish more people would get involved. As far as me personally getting involved that is probably not going to happen. My health is just not getting any better and my mobility is not good enough to run around like I used to. Just standing is hard anymore. I have good days and bad but they are becoming more uneven as time goes on. I do want to get to one of the shows though.
