Have you been there recently in the past year or two?

I don't plan on attending but the same event company took over the former Car Craft Summer show in St. Paul and has made continuous de-provements to the now 'Street Machine' St. Paul show. They started charging for reserved parking on the street and half of the spots are empty as they are unsold so people have to park in the grass or out in BFE which makes it less fun for the entrants & spectators, eliminated some cool shows & competitions, they lost almost all the industry booths like GM performance parts, edelbrock, etc.

Just curious if it's just a St. Paul show thing or across the event planner company.

I haven't been since '95. I had heard some of what you mentioned and that a lot of people do not like the reserved parking, but I thought it was nice. Get to pick your own spot and no race to try and claim your spot. We'll see how it goes, I'm still excited to be going.
