There was some pretty impressive iron on display at the car show. Best of Show runner-up went to a ’67 Datsun 1600 Roadster. Best of Show went to a beautifully-done KA-T powered S13 Coupe, decked out in pristine black paint. Best Engineered went to Wes Dumalski’s black B14 Sentra with a boosted SR, and the Longest Drive award went to Raul Fileto and co-pilot Cesar Delatorre, who drove out 1,573 miles from Los Angeles.
After the car show judging was done, all the Nissans lined up on the Mid-America finish line for some group pictures by our very own Justin McBee (justinmc).
