i went, had a lot of fun, the swap meet was good to me
saw about 10-15 cars running down the track, all but 2-3 were slow as balls
show seemed small this year, costs at the gate were higher than i remembered
i paid for exhibition, ended up in an area past the vendors and swap meet along with a handful of pickup trucks... i don't get it
i remember going to spring and fall show n go and skipping waterfest sometimes because SnG was always better, now idk
there was a time when show n go was held on the same day as honda day or american muscle test and tune and it made the track more interesting, i think i even remember a time when show n go took up BOTH sides of the track it got so big, what happened, and who is running it now that german squad isn't? makes sense now why i didn't even hear about the show, i just know its always early april so i kept searching for the announcement as spring got closer

Trophies wahhhh...Long lines wahhhhh....

Hey Mike. Why dont you build a car that functions?

I'm sure you're going to put a 1.8T in your MK3 and its going to run like ass. You'll tell everyone it runs great and polish a bunch of stuff on it. Then you'll arrive at every show with your hood off. Then you'll sit in your little fold up chair waiting for the judges so you can lie to them and tell them its the most built 1.8T ever. Meanwhile everyone else is kicking back BBQ'ing not giving a ****.

You missed his point - venue sets pricing. Pricing is based on what it costs them (the venue) to run the facilities and pay all their employees, security, and track insurance. At the end of the day, the issue is price, but operations cost will always go up. The shows you mentioned, having never been to any, are all held in parks. Parks are state, city, or town funded, so their pricing is significantly lower than a private venue like Raceway Park.

However, while Raceway sets the pricing, organization, show categories, and judging procedures can definitely be handled better by the presenting groups (whomever it may be) - Raceway Park doesn't know their audience, only the presenting sponsors do.
While majority of what you have said is correct, all of those shows are not held at parks. Cult Classic is held at a park. VAG Fair is on the York Fairgrounds (private venue). Brokedown is held on a private airport. Brokedown was also free to get into. You just donated money to charity as your 'entry' fee. Just thought I should clarify! Carry on!

PS, we stopped going to all Show n' Go events 3 years ago. It had lost it's vibe once German Squad stopped caring as much about it. I can definitely say that we haven't missed it.

ROFL.

I went there to hang out with some people, walk around and see some cars, and watch a good race or two. Mission accomplished. Even parked my pile of **** in the show area so people could see a MKV with some old school ugly wheels on it. If you're going to complain about spending $25-$30 on admission because the judging sucked or whatever and you couldn't find a way to have a good time otherwise, then stay home.

This thread makes me LOL. That is all.

Maybe it's because everytime you lower a car and slap wheels on it, yet leave the rest halfassed, BS the details of it, then expect to win every show you attend and have everyone swing on your nuts.

I'd think that's a pretty accurate guess.


You created this thread because you are butt hurt you didn't win. Whether you realize it or not, that is exactly what it is.

I have to agree with everyone.. I've been going to S&g for 4 years now and it's just getting worse and worse.. Between it being $50 to get in, the loud music and lack of respect for everyone.. it's just not worth it anymore. Well, besides taking home 1st in the 20th class & best motor. :rolleyes: We should all try to make it better for next year.

I don't think any BMWs should of been in the show area unless they were vendor cars, its called
VW Audi Show N Go
none of these fools listen when they're told there's no class for them to be judged, and that they can't go into the show area...

i've also seen some of these guys are sneaking in from exhibition...just sayin'

The price they charge to get in to way too high. and that goes for people just coming to look around and show cars. hell they charge the same price to show a car as they do to have a vendor spot. I have got to the point that i just get a vendor spot and get a nice space all to myself

englishtown controls the pricing for the event not the actually people that run the show.. As far as the dj i can reach out to him and let him know to play other music ....
