Car Enthusiast Brian Gilmore of Gaylord said the event was awesome. He was able to spend the entire day at the show and still made it home in time for the Otsego Lake Fireworks in Gaylord.

“It was hot out (heat indexes exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit) but it didn’t matter,” Gilmore said. “It’s a great show and it’s just nice to walk around and watch the people and the cars.

“We will be going back next year for sure. But hopefully it’s a little cooler.”
