    Default 2011 Syracuse Nationals (NY) July 15-17

    2011 Syracuse Nationals (NY) July 15-17

    The Eleventh Annual DuPont Syracuse Nationals was a Record Setter!

    Every attendance record was broken once again in 2010! The car count climbed to 7,343 show cars. Five Canadian provinces and 40 US states where represented at the NY State Fairgrounds. Over 82,000 fans attended the three day event under clear blue Central New York skies.

    More than 350 national and local vendors were on hand for enthusiasts to purchase any part imaginable for their cars. Our 550 on-site campsites where sold out, months in advance.

    Each year thousands of the hottest cars line the streets of Syracuse early Friday morning waiting to enter the fairgrounds for this monumental car event.

    No matter how you look at it Syracuse Nationals is the largest and most diverse classic car event on the RIGHT COAST! Come join us for another great show in 2011.


    Part of the 2011 Engine Answerman Tour!

    Default Next Week

    This show is coming up fast! Next week I'll be in Syracuse, can't wait!

    Last year was a lot of fun!

    Outkast7 will be kind enough to display his '72 Nova that won Ride of the Month last October (His ALBUM) and his buddy will also have his '67 Chevelle (I believe) by our truck/booth as well!

    Here are some pictures we took last year: (Cars Only) - (General Pics)


    These guys (Louis & Paul) were friends with Mike from Pypes Exhaust and parked between our trucks.



    I rented a red 2010 Mustang while in town

    Default Arrived at Syracuse!



    I flew in to Syracuse for the show today and as usual, first order of business is to see what I'll be riding around in. This time the rental was prepaid to take advantage of an online sale so what I got is what I got and that was a....


    Ford Crown Victoria LX.... Honestly, I'm disappointed and not necessarily fond of it... it's just not my style but moving on!

    I drove over to the Crowne Plaza and checked in before heading over to the Fairgrounds!

    I called Dan (Outkast7) to see where he was parked and stopped by to say hello and chat a bit before heading over to the truck/booth. Dan's Nova and his friend's Chevelle did NOT disappoint one bit!

    Then I went to meet up with Bob Cleveland and help him finish setting up the truck/booth. The pictures I took of these were taken by my "better" camera which means I don't have the images right here right now...

    After setting up, we went out for dinner at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Express with the guys from Pypes, Impala Parts and another vendor that slips my mind...

    Verdict on the food?

    needless to say.. I ate too much!



    Anyway, off to bed because we have an early morning but will post updates with car pictures soon enough!

    And please stop by and say hello if you're in the area! Mention that you read this post and I'll be sure to get you a free sample from one of the sponsors!

    Today's been an amazing day so far. Currently at http://www.pjspubandgrill.com/PJ's but I did take plenty of pictures, found a cool '57 Corvette Die Cast (Burgato) for $5, went to sponsor's casino night with Dan & Jeff and their spouses, took pictures with the Fonz, Joanie, and the other cast member from Haooy days I forget and had the Best pulled pork ever! Will post better update next time

    Had a great time hanging out with the Cool Rides crew. Felt great to have our budget cars sitting with a national sponsor. The crew was MORE than hospitible! Thanks for a great time. Hopefully some of your other winners can join you at other events!

    Rob from Right Coast just sent me that picture. Final numbers were: 86,748 people & 7,589 cars! All of the camping spots also sold out long in advance!

    That's a great show! We had a great time like always!

    Friday:
    First day of the actual show and as advertised, Dan & Jeff brought their cars to display them by the truck with prime real-estate!



    That evening we went to the Vendor/Sponsor casino night where we got some free food, a couple free drinks and a little monopoly-money gambling... plus the cast from Happy Days was there:



    After the casino night - I hung out by Dan & Jeff's campsite for some amazing pulled pork before heading out to meet Bob Cleveland and company at a bar in town (PJ's)

    Saturday:
    Another great day at the show with great (HOT) weather and a lot of people. I snuck away from the booth for a while to check out the cars, take some pictures and get me a Die-Cast model car I was eye-balling (Steel / Black/White '57 Corvette).



    At 6pm - we went to the grand stands where there was ging to be lawnmower races, destruction derby and flame cars. Bob raced in the lawnraces, although it was a little "unfair" as they were from ad ifferent organization with their own rules that allowed wider wheel base, lower seats and "sprint"-type body mods. The other races were actually pretty cool to watch as well. Bob's machine was just as fast but sitting so high up meant he had to take the turns slower or risk flipping over! He ended in 3rd.




    (Don't try this at home) took the Crown Vic around the 1-mile dirt track (very slowly... ) and it got just a little dusty...


    After the races, we drove back to the truck and just hung out there having a few Coronas and BBQ on the grill.

    Sunday
    Sunday has a lot fewer people as many leave on Saturday night or Sunday morning, unless they bought raffle tickets for the car they give away. I did get my Root Beer mug that day and hopefully this year I won't lose it!
