they wanted vans and that is what we gave them,

http://www.hotrod.com/events/coverage/1603-2016-cleveland-piston-powered-auto-rama-van-in/

so here is what happened
the auto -rama wanted a 1970's area at the show  meaning what you would have seen in the 70's at the strip, the drive-in's and on the roads, so they wanted some vans,
they were expecting 8 or 10 and we got them 46, well they were blown away!!!. next hotrod magazine  made a short video in one night it had 200,000 hits, so hotrod called the photographer to get back down there and take the still photo's  so after the photo's were posted they had 1,000,000 (one million hits) on the photo's and 5,000,000 hits on the videos
hotrod magazine , made a comment we knew the vans never went away, . all in all we had a blast.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing this Dix. That is just to cool to here of all the hits on their website with people wanting to see the vans. I'm sure there was other stuff to see, but I think the vans were the real reason. cheers

We attended the wedding of our friends Joe and Shelly Williams this past weekend near Grayling MI.

Some of you may recognize them from the Baker's Gathering.
