At the risk of seeming like I’m actually reporting on something on my personal blog, I decided to cover this event in a manner so wholly unprofessional that any self respecting reader would never accuse me of slipping into journalism. Hence, if you make such an accusation, you need to learn to respect yourself.
How to unprofessionally cover a car show.
- Fail to document the name of the show. Check.
- Show up hours early, before all of the entries have arrived. Check.
- Fail to record the makes and models of the vehicles featured in you article. Check.
- Although the vehicle owners are standing near their entries, fail to ask a single question of any of them. Check.
I must admit, step 3 was the most difficult. This is in large part due to the fact that the make and model of each vehicle is displayed proudly on the windshield of each vehicle. It takes actual effort to avoid accidentally doing one’s due diligence. However, I gritted my teeth and got through it. Yes, it was extra work. Just know that I will stop at anything to keep you, my readers, uninformed. You’re welcome.
The Mifflinville Car Show.*
*The name has been changed to protect me from having to do actual research.
All kidding aside, I’m not a classic car buff. I dig the cars, don’t get me wrong. I’m just not into them enough to learn the details.
This post is intended for folks like myself. Those who can say “cool car” without digressing into a Marisa Tomei “My Cousin Vinny” impersonation.
