The weekend is upon us, we’re edging closer to summer, and car
shows are beginning to pop up. We’ll mention a couple here. The
Vintage Torquefest 2017 is next weekend May 5-6 at the Dubuque
County Fairgrounds in Dubuque, Iowa. John always puts on a
great show and this year is no exception.
Friday is a backroads country cruise to the Potosi Brewery,
mini-bike races on the dirt track, show cars on the dirt track,
a flat track motorcycle exhibition, dirty drags, chain racing,
and flame throwing cars after dark.
Saturday sees mini bikes in the back forty, flat track
motorcycle practice, mini bike and go kart exhibition, the pin
up contest, car owners showcase on the track, more dirty drags,
flat track motorcycle races, an art auction, jalopy heat laps
on the track, and of course bands, vendors, and a swap meet
All this makes it a fun show and proceeds go to Helping
The other event is the 33rd Annual Spring Auto Parts Swap
Meet and Car Corral held Sunday, May 7 at the fairgrounds
parking lot, 700 N. Maple Street in Monticello, Iowa. The event
runs from 7:30 am to 1 pm and is open to high performance,
custom, stock, and antique cars and parts.
Monticello also hosts a Rod and Custom Car Show that will be
held February 25-26, 2018. Now you know. We’ll leave it there
and hope you enjoy our weekend. It’s been raining here, but we
all know it has to rain to get a rainbow.
