June 9th, 2012 Car Show Photos - 5th Annual JuneFest and Choctaw Cruisers Car Show - Ackerman, Mississippi

 

This was the first year I’ve been able to attend this show and put my Olds in a Production car class since their cutoff is 25 years back and my ‘87 is 25 this year.  The heavy overcast kept a lot of people away  - Bob Smith’s Z28 was entry #54 and my 442 was #55, and we were the last ones to arrive.  It rained on us a little on the way down there but once we got to Ackerman it just sprinkled for a half hour and was clear the rest of the day; plus the heavy cloud cover kept it from getting too hot.  I had the only Olds in the show.

My 1987 Olds 442.  It placed First in the 1977 - 1987 Production Cars class.  Thankfully I was able to set up my display when we first got there, and the host club started judging at 11:00 a.m. to let them begin giving out the awards at 2:00 p.m.  As they were finishing up judging my car it started sprinkling rain, so I loaded all my display items back into the car and Bob and I headed for a porch at a closed business to wait it out.
