Reaume Chevrolet, LaSalle
Full Disclosure…I am a loyal and longtime Reaume customer so YES this review will be biased!
Aside from my hometown Gone Crazy car show, this is the one I had been waiting for all season long.
Turns out, I wasn’t the only one. Some three hundred and fifty or so other gear-heads (most of whom got there way before I did) packed the front, side, and rear parking lots at Reaume. It was so full that I was actually relegated to the gravel overflow lot!
Not that I minded, this just meant there were tons of cars to see and people to meet up with. Like my buddy Jason who pocketed the $880 50-50 draw. So happy for him!
The highlight of the day for me was having my dad join me on the cruise portion of the show. Led by a brand-new Camaro SS 1LE, we motored out of town, through River Canard, and into downtown Amherstburg before returning to the Reaume lot. It was a great chance for the two of us to kick back and talk cars; and it certainly brought back memories of me riding in his classic Mustangs during the ’80s.
Back at the show, we wolfed down a super tasty hot dog while fending off this season’s unruly hordes of bees. Also had a nice chat with the ONDR lady about their classic 1982 Glendale mini motorhome.
As for the good people of Reaume, well, I bumped into and/or saw many of them: Craig, Steve, Jenn, John Mc, Sandy, Paul, Debbie and probably a few others I’ve forgotten to mention. Great job folks!
