Beautiful Rides At Bay Life

By Dale Renner

This event started 12 years ago as a benefit fund raiser for the church and has grown into a top rated show, with plenty for everyone including 564 top show cars in Southwest Florida.

Also for the ladies they had a whole section of crafts and for the kids they had their own kid zone with bounce houses, and face painting. It is quite a unique event in that it has become so large for a benefit event and continues to grow every year. The cars in the show were very diverse in that you had several high end show cars, muscle cars and race cars as well as some modified late models and Imports as well.

The show was professionally judged with a Top 50 awarded to the top scorers on the judging sheet. One of the standout cars that scored high was Rick Griffin from Tampa in his insane Pro Street Chevy II.

Ricks car is beautiful from all angles and represents what a Pro Street Car should be Big Engine, Big Tires, loud and Fast. I heard about this event from several other coworkers and many car people and decided I would go for the 1st Time and I will have to say I will definitely be back next year.
