Ft Lauderdale area car show every Friday @ the Tower Shops

Haven't been to one yet, but I've been hearing about them since my days in the Corvette Forums. Every Friday at the Tower Shops just South of 595 on University there's a car show & I've heard it's frequently pretty good sized.

Figured I'd post this up so people can post if they're going & what they're bringing so we can put names to faces.

I'll be there tonight on foot trying to coax someone with a 1SS or 1LT to let me oogle at the interior for a few

If you bring your car to show I heard it was $3, but I'm not sure how much "show" this is. I always figured it was just a bunch of people in a parking lot, but like I said I've never been.

Hope to see many of you there!

Was looking to be a pretty fun show, until it got rained out.

Decided to leave when there was about 2 inches of water in the parking lot.

Ya that was fun. There for about 2 minutes (if that) and it monsoons.

At least my spleen was still dry by the time I got back to my car

Oh well, hopefully we'll have some nice dry Friday's coming up.

Mine is on a railcar on its way to Miami. In a couple weeks I will join you all there. I also have a corvette, do you all park near them or somewhere else? I look forward to seeing all those shiny Camaros soon. Tony

I was there. It was sunny when I got there...for about 10 minutes, then light rain started for about 15 minutes, then stopped. Five minutes later--all hell breaks loose (lightning, downpours; no hail, fortunately); it just came out of nowhere, LOL! 'Tried to wait it out, but it just never let up, so I eventually dipped. However, it was cool to meet another fellow Camaro5 member--Alarick.

Hey, I was there long enough to introduce myself before I nearly drowned in the parking lot walking back to my (wife's) car.

Sorry, I didn't mean to exclude you; I was just thinking about who else was there with their car when I was typing. It's too bad we barely had time to meet (about 10 seconds, was it? LOL) before the downpour started. I tried to wait out the rain, in case you were too, but after 10-15 minutes, I knew it was a lost cause. Hopefully next week will be better.

Hopefully next Friday will have better weather.

And we won't have to worry about the cars floating away in the parking lot.

Me and a couple of my buddies from over here in Naples have talked about coming over to the show. We are probably going to wait till it is cooler and have less chance of rain. Non of us have a Camaro but we have my Vette a crazy cammed Z06 and a Cobra. I will book mark this thread to see who is going when we may decided to come over.

Yeah, come on over. There's always vettes there, but there can never be too many. I love visiting Naples occasionally--beautiful town.

I'll likely head out weather permitting.

Looks like weather.com is saying 30% chance of isolated showers / t-storms from 6-9, so I'll be bringing my unbrella with me this time

Hopefully it stays nice this time!

Well so much for the weather, I live pretty close by & it's dark skies & thunder already. No downpour yet but I'd bet it's a lot more than 30% chance now...

:(

Will try to look again in a few more hours.

Weather.com is showing much lower chance of rain now, down to like 10% @ 7, 25% at 8.

Will check back again later, but things are looking up.
