I'm a little late posting. Pictures were at a minimum this year, as I was travelling with my Mother, Father, Wife, and Shelby ( my dog ). There were many G Bodys here as usual, but handling my dog, I just could not keep up with pics. This was the 25th anniversary of this event, and it did not disappoint. The weather was spectacular. The food was good. The bands were good. The cars were incredible. This event is a week long car show, cruise in, auction, swap meet, burn out contest, concerts, beach, gambling, shopping etc. It is simply the best car event period. If you consider yourself a car guy, and have not attended, you are missing out. There were around 10,000 registered cars, but thousands of others converge on the beach to camp, hang out, and cruise the 8 cities along a 45 mile route along the beach on the Mississippi coast.

So my last name is Carroll. This is my canine daughter... Shelby Carroll. Named after the late, great Carroll Shelby. Check the car. Check the license plate frame. Get it, LOL. This dog got more attention than the cars. I'm serious. I was stopped dozens of times for petting sessions. She made many new friends.

A meet & greet with Dennis Gage... Sportin' my GBodyForum GBOTM t-shirt. Look who's car is on it! I actually spoke to him for several minutes. He also agreed this event is like no other.

I'll be there next year October 2-9, 2022. It would be great to meet some of you guys there. You will not be disappointed. The plan is to take the 78 Cutlass Aero. My best friend is planning on taking his 68 Cutlass S convertible.

Thanks for posting the pics, James.
I've always heard what a cool event it is. Gotta put it on my bucket list of events to attend. Looks like a great turnout of cars.

I spoke to my buddy yesterday & he said this years run was a good one for them. Not a single problem w/any of their groups cars/trucks. I'm going w/them next year if possible since we're not getting any younger.

*EDIT*
My buddies rides that usually do CTC every year....

Hey man, I hear ya about us not getting younger. You gotta take advantage of events, etc. while we still have our health and vitality.
We don't know what life has in store for us down the road.

It is. I wish I could tell you more, ( trust me... I had questions) but the guy sitting next to it was not the owner. The lady sitting behind ... it is her husband's car, and he was not there at that moment. Very unique car. I was diggin it

I 'could' have went as my dually is still around & would fit in. It's just navigating that boat in crowded areas, streets, p-lots is not fun @ all not to mention the quantity of fuel it would consume. Hopefully next year the 'Bu or my 64swb will be easier to navigate options.
