Went to a car show that was on the potomac river in sight of the Washington Monument beside a bridge that separates Maryland and Virginia..if you follow the river a mile or so you go across in Washington DC.

Belle didnt win a trophy and neither did my friends car (photos attached -his is a 69 vette)..BUT my wife and I won the 50/50 raffle ticket drawing!!!
They sold 2,000 tickets and at the end of the show they drew the winning ticket which was ours. We only spent $5 for 10 tickets where many people bought a car length of tickets ($20)...a crowd of about 600 people were present...we won half of the $984 pot...$492 cash! Much better than a resin trophy! This is one time I am glad I didnt win. Wife and I celebrated with a free dinner at a nice restaurant...funny how the food tastes better free! :):sign0020:
