Time to polish and shine up the cars you want to show off.  It's the annual Car Show presented by a local auto-parts store and gas station.  Spectators vote for your favorite car.  Prizes such as cash, free gas, car parts, tools, and auto-accessories will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers of the poll.

 

((I'll figure out what each finishing place gets later, okay?))

 

When: April 20th, 2019. 5pm to 10pm

Where: Eastland Mall's Parking Lot, Northeastern Area

Fee: No fee for spectators, just show up.  $10 Fee per car for those bringing a car to show off.

*Arriving at the mall's parking lot in my Roadrunner with my wife right behind me in the Datsun I can feel it's going to be a good night.  My sister, in the next county over, is babysitting the kids and with Oxnard's car show being this weekend how could I not show up.  After paying the $10 fee for both cars we drive right in as they direct us to two open parking spots.  With me going first I back my Plymouth in the spot and shut off the engine.  As my wife gets into her spot I throw on my sunglasses and get out of my vehicle.  It really is a nice night.  Not too hot, not too cold, and only a slight breeze every now and then.  We only arrived an hour late so the sun is still out.*

 

'Yeah, this is nice'

 

*Shutting my door I scan the area that they put us in.  There's about 100 cars here and they put us in the back of the lot with most of the spots near the mall already taken.  It's not really a great spot if I want to with prizes but I just want to show off the Roadrunner and the 240z.  Hopefully next year I'll get to show off the Corvette but that's a time and money thing so it probably won't happen.  There are a few spots open next to us so I guess we should expect neighbors sometime soon.*

*Had came to the mall to buy a hockey stick at the sports store and I leave the place with three new pairs of shoes, a negligee, two new dresses for summer, as well as the hockey stick I initially came here to purchase.  As I exit through the doors leading outside my six inch high heel sandals start clicking again on the concrete sidewalk and asphalt surface of the parking lot after being silent on the mall's entryway's rugs.  As I move further into the lot I can feel my long white skirt and black/white striped sleeveless shirt flutter slightly with the cool breeze as well as my movements.  The day was certainly warmer than usual so I'm glad I wore the outfit I did as it helped me keep cool; of course the AC in the mall also helped.*

 

*Having spent a good couple hours in the mall I'm glad I came out just as it was starting to cool off outside.  More than that I'm also just about surprised to see the parking lot full of old and/or expensive cars for a show going on.  With my car parked nearby in the parking lot I can't help but take glances at the vehicles while passing by the outside edge of the show; even if I'm not that into cars.  Getting to my Chevy SS I store my newly purchased stuff away in the trunk and decide that viewing a car show might be slightly enjoyable.  Closing the trunk I fetch my Oakley sunglasses from my purse and put them on as I turn around to make my way to see what other cars are there.*

*After spending the day detailing the mercury I get the keys to the marauder wanting to show it as its the only dark blue pearl metallic Marauder in Shiloh county. I can try and grab food at the show, Definitely not eating in the marauder. Normally James or Katie like to come to the shows with me but this year there doing there hanging out with there friends. I get to the show and park in a decent spot between Blackburn's Roadrunner a 1957 Buick with an owner in his late 30s dressed up like a greaser.. I pop the hood and roll down the 2 front windows. I look around for a food vendor.*

 

 

'Whats up, Always great to see your cars out.'

*As times goes by the spots around me are filling up as a 57 Buick parks two places next to me.  As the guy gets out I try not to laugh as a greaser wannabe steps out.  My old man was a greaser and if he were still alive he would kick this guy's ass.  Moments later a familiar looking car parks in between us as Russo shows up in his Maurader.*

 

'Evening.  Yeah, love this time of year when I can actually drive my good cars.  No Jeep today?'

'Nope, Just this. Ashley was out with her friends and Steph had a girls night. So no drivers. Plus, This is the only Dark pearl blue marauder in the county. Just detailed her today. You know there were only 328 of these made in 2003. I think I told you this but I owned this car from day one. I picked it up with 7 miles on the odometer.'

*Walking around the show and it's not as much fun as I thought it would be.  Guess I'm just not that much of a car gal after all even though I've seen quite a variety of vehicles here from old Fords from the 30s to newer exotic looking cars.  None of them really interested me much as I either ignored them or took just a second or two to get a good glance before moving on.  Stopping by a Ferrari in white paint, it looks kind of cool, I slowly walk around it to find out what type of Ferrari it is.  The badge on the back says GTO but I thought Pontiac made the GTOs.  As I'm checking out the interior I don't notice someone walking up to me.*

 

'Like my car?'

 

*Almost jumping I turn my head to see a guy in his late thirties, sporting facial hair like one of the members of the Backstreet Boys, looming over me.  He's dressed in a black T-Shirt with a Ferrari emblem on it and blue jeans.  He looks like a tool especially with the heavy amount of hair gel he used.  Standing up straight I turn to face him.*

 

'Well, it is nice'

 

'Bought it brand new.  Only has 30 thousand miles on it.  On a good day I can hit almost 200mph on I-48.  I know because I've done it a few times.'

 

*He says as he pulls out and lights up a cigarette.*

 

'Oh, aren't you worried about the police when doing?'

 

'Nah, not really, they'd have to catch up to me first.'

 

'Oh, well, that's good for you then.'

 

'So how about it?  You want a ride sometime?  You'll love it.  Oh, I'm Kurt by the way.'

 

'Evelyn and I think I'll pass but thank you though.'

 

'Well, alright, the offer will still stand if your interested later.'

 

'Well, thank you, what was your last name again?'

 

'Oh, it's Webber'

 

'Alright, Mr. Webber.'

 

'Oh, please call me Kurt'

 

'Ok, Kurt, I'm going to go check out the other vehicles here now.  It is a nice Ferrari you got here.'

 

'Oh, sure, you know where to find me if you change your mind'

 

'I sure do'

 

*Turning around I walk away feeling creeped out.  Throughout that conversation his eyes never once looked at my face for longer than a second.  Even now I feel his gaze on my backside.  As I pass by the front of the car I stop briefly to take a glance at his license plate.  599 GTO it reads.  I'll remember that.  As I start to walk off again I over hear him telling his friend.*

 

'Yeah, she'll be back.  I'll be taking her for a ride in my car and then for a ride in the back seat.'

 

*Hearing that, I sigh and reach into my purse as I come to a stop and turn around.*

 

'Oh, Mr. Webber, I almost forgot.'

 

*Pulling out my badge I flash it his way.*

 

'Since I'm not catching you in the act I'm just giving you a warning.  However, just because we might not be able to catch up doesn't mean we don't have ways of making you stop.  So slow down and obey the speed limit because we will be watching for you.'

 

*Not wanting to waste time to see the look on his face I turn back around and put my badge back in my purse as I walk off again to check out the other cars.*
