Disappointed in car shows

To the editor,

In regard to our car shows held this month and at the end of July, I was so disappointed. It is bad enough to have to pay an entry free when the other show does not have one, but our first place winner did not even get his photo in the paper.

One thing I need to point out also, if I read the flier correctly, only cars were to be in the show and receive trophies. Others happened to show up. We respected them and we should have been respected. We do not get any publicity like others do and we show up and give support.

We put our pants on the same way as anyone else. But we know who butters the bread. Our guys could do without trophies and show off their cars because they love them and are proud of the blood, sweat and tears that they put into them.

In their minds, those were the good old days we knew, not who is better or not. Come on and stop nit picking. Be fair. We are better than that.
