    You are correct there are several other owners in the Madison area with Ford GT’s, but I’m not aware of them being members on this site (they typically do not take their cars to the typical car shows, but they do take them to cars and coffee events in the area).

    And you are correct there is 1 person in Madison (he has a collection of cars located in a building in downtown Madison) that has a new Ford GT.

    As for shows it depends on what you are looking for … there at at least 25 shows in the Madison area that are your typical “Car Show” with trophies.

    The season “starts” with Automotion in the Dells (multiple car shows in the Dells, but the “real” Automotion is for cars 1989 and older) and for many the end of the year show is in Pardeeville (all years show). These are by far the biggest shows in the area. Most of the other shows are your normal small town local shows (which you will typically see the same 50-75 cars that travel the weekends looking for shows).

    If you are looking to see cars that you typically don’t see at car shows I would recommend Cars and Coffee in Lake Mills (First Sunday of the month, starts in May and if the weather is decent they will get about +300 cars). Also there is a Cars and Coffee in Fitchburg at Barrquies (PD) on the other Sundays (typically about 20-30 cars).

    This site has most of the shows for the year listed and I would also recommend:

    What did you like about car shows this year?
    More cars, even if there are a lot more newer cars at shows as compared to 10-15 years ago.

    What did you dislike about car shows this year?
    Nothing

    Did you attend any new shows you have never been to?
    I was able to attend a few stops on the Hot Rod Power Tour, went to the Indian Uprising in St. Charles IL, went on my first poker run, and the Bryon Classic drags. I was able to put about 3000 miles this summer.

    What shows did you not attend this year that you did in years past?
    Iola and Spring Green

    What are your plans for 2018?

    Probably attend the National Pontiac show in the Dells, and I would like to attend the Woodward Cruise in Detroit. I would rather go for a drive, and have lunch at some place I have never been. My car is far from a show car and I would rather drive my car and experience new places and things then going to the same shows over and over and over again.

    This is a great reminder as the season starts … Several years ago I tossed out over 50 trophies … Why? Well the thing that makes me smile is actually driving the cars I’ve owned and talking to folks. My 2017 car season started off yesterday when I took my car out of storage and a truck driver driving a mobile gas station (reference to Smokey and the Bandit) pulled up along side of my car and gave me a little Toot Toot from his big rig. That is what makes me smile is getting others to smile, when they see my car.

    Another way to bring it back is to just create a section on the forum for “Rate the Show”. No questions. You just create a new post in that area and type up your thoughts.
