Just getting back from the Performance Plus Spring Cruise night and BBQ. I know it’s late. I stopped to see relatives before leaving for home. I have to say this is a must attend Long Beach car event. It seems that as we get closer to summer the car event I attend just get better and better. While each venue has its own personality and appeal the Performance Plus Spring Cruise night was one of the most enjoyable shows I’ve been to this year. This event has character. I imagine a lot of that character comes from the owner of Performance Plus. While chatting with people at the show, many had great stories about the owner of Performance Plus that span many, many years. He actually doesn’t look old enough for all the years people have know him.

I have to say thanks for the great food. I thought the BBQ was terrific. Okay good food is one of life little pleasures but what about the cars?

The cars were terrific. While it was a small show compared to Seal Beach or Belmont shore it was well worth it. The vehicles were simply terrific.

The people I meet at car shows always seem to be great. This show had that same friendly feel of comradery. One of the things I really enjoy about car shows is learning about the cars. It’s like a little American history lesson in a fun learning environment. The educational aspect of car shows is made possible by the friendly people telling you about their cars. I find learning about the different cars and their histories is what makes car show so interesting.

Performance Plus Spring Cruise is the first car show that made me think I should have a rating system. Can any of my site visitors suggest a car metaphor rating system?

I will post more photos later.
