Is it OK for Dads to go to a Car Show on Father's Day?

If your Dad said he was going to a Father's Day car show, would you support him or make him light the BBQ instead?

Dad's around the country spent all day Saturday polishing their rides so they can enjoy a day at a local car event on Father's Day Sunday. In Southern California, everyday is a car day so why would a Dad want to go to one more show? Should he go to the event or should he stay home with the family? I'm sure that debate will last 'til the end of time, but... Is that even up for debate?

Here's the question, "Is Father's Day for Dad or is it for for the kids?" I say, let's let Dad decide what he wants to do with "his" day, while we'll celebrate him and his decision. Do you agree?

I spent my Father's Day morning with my kids at the Cruizin' with Johnny Rockets - Breakfast Car Meet in Camarillo, CA. And... well, then we BBQ'd at my Father-in-Law's in the afternoon. Turned-out to be a win-win for me and the kids!

Where were you on Father's Day?

Although born in Boston, I spent most of my life in Southern California. When growing-up, everything I did revolved around cars. My first car was a '64 Comet thanks to my Sister. Favorite cars owned: '66 Mustang and '69 Camaro. My first engine build was a Ford 289 in high-school, which powered my '66 Stang through a high 12-second pass in the 1/4. I designed the engine based on what I learned from lots of automotive mags. Current toys are late models including an '07 Mustang GT/CS and '03 Cobra. Future project expects to be a '69 Camaro or '69 Mach I pro-touring build.

Be sure to say hi, when you see me at an event!
