We don't attend many pure car shows. We tend to focus on multi-faceted events blending auto-crossing, drag racing, open-tracking, and showing. However, one dedicated show we make sure to mark on our calendar is www.AmericanMuscle.com's annual car show.

Most importantly, we can count on a huge number of Mustangs being in attendance. Second, the aftermarket comes out to support the show, as well. Manufacturers from AmericanMuscle's stable of suppliers are available to provide technical assistance and support for the latest products. Third, yours truly has a chance to visit with friends from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Last, but certainly not least, I get to see AmericanMuscle's Brick Spurio.

I'm not sure what exactly Brick does at AmericanMuscle, but evidently he's really good at scaring the AmericanMuscle girls. At this year's show, he wasn't ever too far from them -- each time I passed the AM girls autograph location, Brick was a fixture. And I can't really blame him for that.

Mind you, I'm not one for creeping -- I didn't note his behavior while trying to get autographs over and over again. The autograph location happened to be between the show field, food and vendor rows, and my rental. A guy's gotta eat, ya' know, and get his camera.

Speaking of needing my camera, there were over 1,200 cars on the property to check out. If you didn't make it out, see what you missed in the following captions.

Horse Sense: Each www.AmericanMuscle.com's show has a charity function within the show. This year the company generated over $14,408 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help find a cure. To find out more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and do your part, visit www.cff.org.
