Or..... Plan, promote, & organize your own G-body event so you can turn down the extra $$ by excluding any other body styles so your show is LEGIT 'g-body only'.
That's one approach- "If you don't like the flavor of the cake, then have your own party." Believe me, I would if I could. I'm still on the fence with it, but I can play devil's advocate for either case.
Based on the advertising, however, you would think that's what this event was. Legit.
Why not call it an "all GM" show and call it a day if there's an influx of non-G-body cars? I don't care how they run the show, but call it what it is, and don't pretend it's something that it's not. Were there like, only 5 non-G-body cars? If so, it's not a flood, but still, pick a direction and stick with it. I don't know what they do with the "entry fees" for non-G cars. I mean, what's the point? To get better parking? If they're herding all the non-G's into a certain outer area for display only (Yeah, I'm "body" shaming, so what?), I'm ok with that. But promote the event for what it is, not what it isn't. And partly, as I see it, some of the attendees are idiots for even attempting to bring something other than a G-body to the event in the first place.
And this event advertised as a G-body event, no? For a refresher, here it is. I didn't see any mention to bring anything else. The expectations are, based on what's below, that this is a "legit" G-body function.
The G-Body Classic is Classic GBody Garage's Official Annual event held at Pull-A-Part Used Auto Parts in Cleveland, OH. Bring your G-Body NO MATTER THE CONDITION OR STYLE
I don't consider myself as a car-show elitist here. I'm all for car show inclusivity, when it's for any and all makes/models. Even motorcycle divisions. If it's got an engine, bring it. But you don't bring a Chrysler to an advertised Pontiac show. Not sure who the bigger moron would be. The one who brought it or the one who let them in. When there are restrictions, you either follow them or don't. And let the attendees decide for themselves if it's worth going to or not. But let everyone know what's going on.
Like I said, for me it's what they do with the proceeds afterwards. Follow the money. If it's for the benefit of G-bodies everywhere, I'm all for it whatever they decide. If it's just to put extra lining in their pockets, nothing wrong with that, but then why should I buy a bunch of gas, rent a hotel room, drive a zillion miles to go to the same type of show I can go to around here for 1/10th the cost?
