That's great. In New Jersey, however, there are tons of Challengers. You don't stand a chance of winning anything unless your car is heavily modified or you are with a car club.

I never really go to car "Shows" but more like "Cruises". I get sickened by the new stuff that is basically, "HEY, look what I installed (by peeling off 3M red backing) type of "mods". I like some graphics, but most, nope. I like oddball old stuff at shows, and usable stuff. I enjoy my 1967 El Camino, and there isn't anything special about looking at it, and underhood looks eh...
Show me a HEMI in a Prowler or a big block Corvair, and I'll spend my time looking at it.
One little show I was at last weekend had a Mustang something special, uh, hmm, wait...
Oh yeah, it was a Roush. Do you know how I new it was a Roush? I read it on the car, TWENTY NINE FRIGGIN TIMES, each wheel, 3 plaques, each tail pipe, headrests, HOOD HINGES??? , I'm sure I missed a dozen or so, but I counted 29 "Roush" instances, it was "Roushcharged" or "Roushified" or some damn thing. I bet the tire treads would leave the word "Roush" across the legs of bystanders as well.

Did you get any video of the Roush Mustang crashing as it left the show ?

Nice, you got a chuckle out of me on that one. Like a guy on YouTube I saw, created the nickname for them of "Crowd Slayer" like a G.O.T. name.
