  1. Future Classic cars???? How stupid! I have been a classic car collector for decades now, and one thing I cant stand is guys who show up with a late model car and gets a trophy for it. Stupid!!

  2. At a typical car show or cruise in I agree with Dave and Judd. It drives me crazy when someone buys a brand new Corvette and pulls in and opens the hood next to my ’59 Vette. I have just as much invested, if not more, but there are also countless hours of love, cussing, and bleeding. All this guy’s showing off is a bank account!

    That said, these future classic shows are the place for them. The whole show is for the late model cars and people who appreciate them. If I lived close enough I would love to show off my ’98 Riviera survivor that only needed a buff and detail to be as show worthy as any of my other classics. No different than in the ’50s/60s when people were showing off their cars at the local drive in.
