    It's good. Much smaller scale. No concert. All the restaraunts are open on the weekend. And oh yes, it ALWAYS rains!! But there's also an air show at the airport and something going on at the convention center so it should be fairly crowded. Just bring an umbrella.

    As stated, it always rains and it seems to be chilly all the time. It's much smaller in terms of 'sanctioned' shows. There seems to be alot more crap (rice cars aka the fast and furious type) cars there and these jacked up diesel trucks that show up and blow their exhaust into the neighboring cars on purpose. This show used to be my favorite because I was able to bring my favorite car down and participate in the shows and boardwalk parade. This car is not old enough for the show in May so I take a different older car to that one. One of these years, I'll take both cars down in October.

    rain rain rain?

    Oh goodness! When I inquired about the Oct. car show a few months ago on this forum, most of the posts said it was a great time and that the weather usually cooperates that time of year. Now, it seems the concensus is that it RAINS on that weekend. We are big fans of OC, and I have suggested that my neighbors (who are car show groopies) take a ride to the Oct. show in OC. They did not make the one in Wildwood this year, and r looking forward to the one in Oct... I hope I haven't steered them wrong!!

    It's held in early OCTOBER. there have been nice shows, and there's been days that get washed out. Not that different from the spring show.

    The worst downpours I've experienced have been in the spring show. Fortunately, it usually rains less days during the spring show. I never had to cancel my plans to go at the last minute because of rain for the spring show as I've had for the October show. I've canceled my trip for October 05 and 06 because of rain. I'll most likely miss it this year but that will be because of financial situations that are caused by buying a house and then finding out lots of things that weren't disclosed or covered up needs fixed.

    Well, It turned out financially we could swing a few days down there but something else came up. My wife and I were going to go down for a couple of days so she could take her Monte Carlo on the boardwalk but that won't happen now. Her parked Monte Carlo was hit by a RV piloted by a 73 year old man 2 weeks ago. I have to buy 2 new tires for her car now because his insurance refuses to replace them even though they were cut by the impact. There goes $300 down the drain. The car also won't be out of the body shop until October 9th. The other 2 cars I normally take aren't close to ready because I wasn't planning on taking them. To anyone going, have fun!
