    I stumbled across this last year after it was over. Looks to be an invitation only motorcycle show with an old school flavor.

    I'm going this year.

    I accepted the invitation and rode with @Gator to check this out. I'm really glad I did and will definitely go back next year. The location was perfect for this event. Old building that you could smell the oil soaked floors before you made it in the door.
    There were a lot of really cool motorcycles and a hand full of really sharp cars. Everything in there was unique and one off.

    Every motorcycle there had unique features and details, some that jumped out and others that you could walk around 3 times and not notice until someone pointed it out.

    So even though this was a car/motorcycle show, I'd say 90 percent of the motorcycles there get ridden fairly often. Not many trailer queens. There were a few that weren't quite my style but they still had their own character and unique engineering.
    I'm sure @Gator probably has a few different pics?

    I really enjoyed his event, it definitely had a different "vibe" ( I don't remember the last time I used that word ). Plenty of custom motorcycles and cars, some funky people and a great venue. Even the vendors that were there were of a specific type, small mom & pop type.

    I took pics of most of the same vehicles that @LizardKing did but I do have some different.

    I told my son ( yep, @LizardKing belongs to me ) that this car was a little out of place, underhood was too nice and up to date compared to everything else that was there.

    Still, a nice car.,
