We were up at 4:45am to get in line to get our spot in the show. It takes a lot of people and time to properly park 1100 cars. It was an early start but so worth it. After we got our cars parked, we cleaned them up and waited 40 mins for a coffee in the only open coffee shop in downtown and then cruised around talking to some people we know and others we didn't. It is a great way to see the show and the cars and talk to old friends before the huge crowds start to arrive.
