NEC5 Shines Bright at the Rhode Island Chevy Show!
 
50 Attachment(s)
Today was another winning day for New England Camaro 5. Today was the day of the Rhode Island Chevy Owners Association Car show. This show is put on by the RICOA club and is open to all Chevy models, old and new. They have classes for Corvettes, Chevelles and Novas, Monte Carlos, Corviars, late models, as well as Gasers, and GM powered cars. But of course, the class most near and dear to us if the Camaro class. Because of our great turn out last year, the first year for the Gen5 class, this year they split the Gen5 class into stock and modified.

The day started out like any other for NEC5. Folks from all over New England waking up early and doing what they had to making sure their Camaros were ready (I personally had to do a quick rinse / wash after last night's storms). Some of us got up really early. Then we all made our way to our rally points. There were several minor rally points, but the major ones were in Burlington, where the Camarovan started, Hopkington where we met up basically doubled our size, and North Attleboro, were we again nearly doubled in size. In all, 48 Camaros rallied at the Emerald Square Mall for our "class picture".

Here is a picture of the Camarovan on the way from Hopkington to N. Attleboro. There are 24 of us in this picture alone!

and unlike last year's picture (which I found out was taken in the exact same place as last year) we were not photo bombed by a Subaru.

After a near flawless execution of the group line up (expect to see our signature pictures start changing), we all rolled out for Diamond Hill State Park for the actual car show. Getting there was fun, and then we clogged up the entrance (oops). Hey, they knew we were coming en mass.

It was a perfect day for the show; the weather couldn't be more perfect. We had a good location in the park, with shade at the edge (but can we say "pond" for next year???). I recall they said they had a record turnout of well over 300 cars. This may not be a huge car show, but everyone in NEC5 knows that this is our show.

We also walked away with several awards:
chevy 3 - 1st Place in the Modified Class (left)
PAUL SS - 2nd Place in the Modified Class, and he won 6lbs of fresh chicken from the raffle (center)
95RedCamaroz28 - 3rd Place in the Modified Class (right)

sorry I have to combine all three pictures into one - I've hit the max limit of attachments, and I still have a few member pics to add.

And of course, with 50 or so NEC5 members, our club won, for the third year in a row, the trophy for Best Club Participation!!! And how could we not? I mean, really...WE ROCK!
Attachment 389605

After the show and after those of us left signed the trophy and had our pictures taken with it, a few of us went for ice cream.

All in all, it was another great day for NEC5. I have a lot of folks to thank for making this day work out as well as it did, but suffice it to say in this post, I thank all of our club members who showed up! Admit it, you had a great time, for for those of you new to the car show scene, you know you'll be doing more of this stuff, right?

I'm sorry if I missed you; I tired to get a picture of everyone, but some of you slipped through. If you have your own picture, post it, and I'll put it up here with the rest of them.

I also need to add in all of my "thank yous".

Duflar 06-24-2012 08:00 PM

I hope someone's got a really good picture from the mall. The stitching of the photos I took didn't work out very well :(

djb525 06-24-2012 09:03 PM

Here's the Drive-by video of all the cars on the way to the mall.
I'm working on figuring out how to upload it so people can download it.
Anyone know a free website for filesharing that supports large video files (that hasn't been shut down? :paddle:)

Lots of wind noise, so turn the audio down!




I've uploaded the video to filehosting.org. You can download it there, but you have to enter an email address. Don't shoot me if you get spam, I'm not 100% sure on how the site operates. I'd use a temporary email just incase. Enjoy!

This is cool...as I was bringing up the rear on the way to the mall, I was taking some pictures of the Camarovan. When I went through them, I did a double take, cross-referenced the one of the pics I took with the one that Tim posted last year...

It's a perfect place for this kind of shot!

Had a great time had to cut out earlier then i wanted, i know i didn't socialize much the panda bear next to me was to tired to do much walking around. Then again working on the car at 12 am the morning of the show didn't help either of us. Gonna plan better next year and very awesome video DJB.

I'll work on mine tonight when I get home. I was way too tired last night. And I'll see about getting my video posted, although it shows how dirty my windshield was. :facepalm:

Here's the one I took...

When I was a kid I would set up my Matchbox/Hot Wheels cars in a circle like that when I would have my mock "car shows" so I did a little Tilt-Shift action on it which almost makes them look like toy cars.
