24 Apr 2012 2012 Classics and Chrome Car Show Rockford, IL

Good cars for a good cause!  I spend a wonderful Sunday afternoon with my Son-in-Law and grandson at the Rockford Classics and Chrome Car Show. Meet some very nice people and looked at some beautiful cars.
The Classics and Chrome Car Show is the largest indoor car show in Northern Illinois and has become one of Rockford’s signature events in helping drive tourism and revenue to the Stateline area. Since its inception in 2001, Classics and Chrome has featured more than 1,000 vehicles, raised more than $500,000 for Keith Country Day School, given away $450,000 in raffle prizes and entertained more than 50,000 spectators.

This year the show was located at the old Menards building in Machesney Park with more than 120 vehicles on display including pre and post-war classics, sports cars, muscle cars, hot-rod and custom cars, exotic and race cars, specialty cars and motorcycles. Attendees and car owners were both local and national. In recent years, patrons and owners have been from Chicago or other parts of Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, New York and Arizona.


Food was provided by Der Rathskellar, there was a performance by Indianapolis 500 magician Bill Hunter, and vendor booths had giveaways. The show  also featured a raffle with a grand prize of $15,000. Second prize is $3,000 and third prize is $2,000. Raffle tickets was $100 each and $500 for six.

Admission was $6 with Children 10 and under are free. Raffle tickets odds were very very good this year and I wished that I had bought the Six for $500 there was advanced sales at  www.ClassicsAndChrome.com  and my guess is that they will do that again next year.

14 Sep 2008 Where is the portrait going to hang?

Another thing to consider when selecting what to wear is the location of the final portrait. If it will hang in the living room over the fireplace, you should try to incorporate the color scheme of the room into your clothing choices.

Of course you will want to choose outfits that fit your personality and make you feel more attractive. You don’t want to color coordinate with the fireplace if the outfit is going to make you feel creepy.

Create color harmony and ensure that all outfits are coordinated. Avoid patterns or stripes — solid, neutral color look the best. Avoid wearing short skirts or shorts, as they make posing more difficult. Long, flowing dresses, jeans, and khakis make better selections.

Sleeveless shirts or tops with very short sleeves are sometimes very unflattering in portraits, thus should be avoided.

Because shoes often show in portraits, ensure that the shoes you wear compliment your clothing. However, bare feet also works in many cases.
