Does the show do a Long Distance Award?   I know a lot of the car shows I go to have one and it's fun to see who comes the farthest.

I'm personally sponsoring an award for people who travel from Traverse City Michigan to the show and are named Johnny.  the prize is free beer at the dinner the night before the show.  So far, I've never had to pay up for that award......maybe this year? tongue
