Perfect weather made for the largest crowds ever. Organizers are estimating that nearly 25% more spectators attended the concours on Sunday than last year. Unlike other major automotive events that I have attended this year, a large part of the crowd was made up of families. Features such as Chef Brendan Meeker's cooking demonstrations, the scale model display and kids' "build and take" corner and the Summit Racing sponsored Glenmoor Garage were filled with active participants both young and old, male and female all day long.
Not that anyone has anything against Edsels. As a matter of fact, they were actually very good cars that were victimized by some of the worst marketing decisions in automotive history. The reason is, despite one of the events main features being "The Cars of Edsel Ford", he had nothing to do with the Edsel. In fact, he died fifteen years before the Edsel automobile was conceptualized and produced.
As in previous years, the nice people at the Glenmoor Gathering have given us a limited quantity of tickets to share with our readers/commenters at no charge. To receive your complimentary ticket (normal price $20) to this great event, just contact Tabetha Salsbury at 330-966-3600 or email@example.com and mention the Car Chase blog. The first eight people to contact her will receive one free ticket for the concours to be held on Sunday, September 20!
