The Cabin Fever Car Show is such a great idea for a show - indoors in the middle of a so called winter! It's been going on for years too! I remember my favorite professor back in community college telling me that this was one of the only "shows" he attended each year. Obviously for me, it being in Knoxville is super handy! The last time I had been though was when it was being held in the Jacobs building. Yeah, I think it's been quite a while. Either way, I went. There seemed to be a pretty good turnout as far as I could see. The cars were packed in and the people were shoulder to shoulder. I personally could have done without the indoor swap meet for some more cars, but oh well.
Probably my favorite MoreDoor Classic of this show was the 1955 Fairlane. It was just a solid, original car. One thing I am trying to work on is approaching owners and talking to them about their car in person. I'm an ISTJ. Anyone know what that means?? It's the extreme introvert personality from the Myers Briggs personality test--it means when people approach me to talk about one of mine, I'm good AND love it! But for me to approach someone to talk to them about theirs? Nah. I feel like I am bothering them - go figure. Anyways, the gentleman who owned the '55 approached me and started telling me about it. I was happy to stand there and talk as long as he wanted. The 1962 Studebaker wagon definitely had the cool accessory department covered!
As with most car shows that I've been too, I find as many IF NOT more MoreDoor Classics in the parking lot. This show was no different! And I can understand. Usually, I don't take mine in because I don't want to pay for the entry fee, especially since I'm not going to win anything anyway. There is a show or two that I WOULD pay the entry fee, but that's for another day.
I'm a family man enjoying what God has blessed me with and trying to fuel my passion as an automotive enthusiast but on a budget.
