The 40th Annual Back to the Fifties Car Show was this past weekend in St. Paul, Minnesota. The three-day car show attracted over 12,000 cars to the Twin Cities for a fun weekend of classic cars and good times. The California Car Cover Crew and I were on hand again to see a lot of our friends from the upper Midwest. I will post some video from the show later this week.

MSRA. The Minnesota Street Rod Association is a great group of classic car enthusiasts. They do an amazing job of getting tons of cars and spectators to spend a weekend with them in St. Paul. Usually the weather is perfect, but this year there were high winds and thunderstorms all weekend. Even with the bad weather, the fairgrounds were packed all three days with hot rods and people.
Street Rodder Road Tour and one of the tour legs this summer ended at Back to the Fifties. Our car care line, Golden Shine, is one of the official product sponsors for this year.

The Nook. This burger place was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and did not disappoint. The stuffed burgers were great and we can't wait to go back. While at dinner we noticed that the weather was pretty ugly. Before going back to the hotel we thought we should drive back to the fairgrounds to check on our booth. Even though everything was secured and covered, we wanted to double check on the trailer before calling it a night. Fortunately, we secured the booth and everything was fine, but a few other vendors were not as lucky.

Great Race convened on the show. The fairgrounds was the starting point for this year's race to Mobile, Alabama. Competitors were all driving classic cars in a race to the gulf. The staging area attracted a lot of show spectators to the race track.
