»  (Sept 07 2008) - 1000s of spectators, 100s of cars, car clubs galore

PORTERVILLE, CA -- This afternoon at the Porterville Fair Grounds, Peter and Jose Miranda from JM Events, put together one hoppin car show that many car enthusiasts enjoyed. Cars and car clubs came from all over California to be at this new event in Porterville and many car clubs told the Post theyd contact other clubs concerning come back next year.

I started putting together cars shows about 7 years ago in Tulare, says Jose Miranda, and each year JM Events produces annual events, parades and Cinco de Mayos. We all have a great time and we hope to return to Porterville next year.

As hot at is was, the people were really having a good time. Jose added, for this special event, it took me and my brother about a month to put together, which is fast. It usually takes about 3 to 4 months to hook up with everyone so they can check their calendars. And then there are those who didnt hear about the event until the last minute and so we allowed them to register as well since this was the first time in Porterville.

From the tally that was taken before the Post left, there were about 300 entries and close to 50 different categories. The judges were still walking the lanes and as soon as they declare the winners from each of the classifications, they told the Post theyd shoot us an e-mail with the results.

One of the first things that the Post encountered was the increased measure to protect all who entered. Once you paid your entry ticket, you then had to get a "Pat-Down" from the extra security teams that JM Events required. "We need to make sure that everyone has a good time and no one gets in with any weapons," one of the security members told the Post. And for the most part, the people didn't really mind. They got through the gate, was searched for weapons and no one complained.

The Producers of the car show also told the Post that the Porterville Police Department officers were actually giving citations to the car exhibitors for having their car stereo systems too loud, even though these individuals who had these cars, were there to exhibit their car stereo systems. As it turned out, this was a mistake and the on-call Sgt. at the PPD told JM Events, that should not have happened.
