Car Show (Jeep in it?)

My church is having an outdoor expo and they want to have some cars participate in a car show. My question is should I put mine in? Its an 87 GW, solid but not a show car. I was thinking of setting it up with a camping and fishing feel? What do you think?

Hey, if the local punks can put a 96 Honda Civic painted lavender, with a fart cannon and a stick on hood scoop in a car show, you can DEFINITELY put a clean waggy in a car show!

Another example was a stock, fairway green 2000 Chevy Cavalier with graphics depicting a ninja with drawn sword, knight rider swishing LED strip on the front, and rent to own 16 inch alloys on it. PLEASE put the waggy in!

Put it in the show - there seems to be something about a Jeep, any Jeep, that causes people to stop by and relate all of their Jeep stories...

I'd be interested in how you do.

I have put mine in a couple and have had a lot of attention but never won anything. My son says it's because "people don't like Jeeps".

Let us know how it goes.

Think of all the Hondas and other small imports that run around making a lot of noise. Look on the back, you'll see a muffler, usually polished, with 3 to 5 inch outlet, and a 1.5-1.75 inch pipe leading in. These mufflers have earned the moniker "fart cannon". On a stock engine, they offer little to no performance increase, they just make a ton of noise. I did not come up with this. There used to be a web site called "anti-rice.com" They're building a new one, but it's not up yet. Anti-rice's founder, called them Fart cannons.

DO IT!

We've taken our unrestored 72 Wagoneer to two shows this summer. Do we expect to win anything? Nope - but it is FUN, and you will meet a lot of people who like Jeeps.

Doooo eeeet!

Picnic basket on the tailgate. Fishing poles, etc.

Maybe even grill some brats for everybody, a'la 'tailgating' theme.

i say do it! you should pop up a tent right next to it, have a grill, and some fishing tackle! wear a khaki vest with 400 pockets on it, and a BassProShops hat. i took my old waggy to a car show, and brought an RTI ramp and parked her with one wheel off the ground kinda teeter tottery. a lot of people were impressed! and i won a t-shirt, but i'm not sure why, lol....

Thnx for the info, we called 'em "coffee cans" back home.

Fart cannon's a good one, though. I like it
