I like to make top 10 lists of the photos I take at classic auto shows, but sometimes I cannot narrow it down to just 10. With nearly 1200 photos taken the weekend of this show, I just couldn't keep it at 10 and 13 was hard enough. The MSRA Back to the 50's show is held yearly in June, at the St. Paul MN State fairgrounds. This year 11,700+ cars, trucks, and hot rods were registered, just missing 12,000. They have been at 11,700+ for the last 3 years now, it would be great if they could hit the 12k mark next year.
This year was the 20th anniversary of the yearly Minnesota Metro American Truck Historical Society show, but it was my first visit. The show was great, but I got there late in the afternoon and some of the better trucks had already left due to the 90+ degree heat and the show being nearly 7 hours long. Next year I will need to get there earlier.
