Radwood Seattle area 7-20-19 Should I stay or should I go?

I realize that Radwood is a big event all over the US and many young enthusiasts attend (younger than me). As I currently have a few w126 cars prepped and ready to go this is all new to me. My immediate thought is that my 89 Supercharged SEC might fit into the event better than slightly modified sedans. My coupe is lowered, OZ 3 piece wheels, custom interior, kick butt exhaust (AMG headers/Magnaflow) and Supercharged. Would like to attend to represent what I do along with reinforcing the timeless beauty of the Sacco coupe. My coupe is not for sale but a nice example of my restoration/modification talents.

Anyone here ever displayed their car at Radwood?
Any and all comments are welcomed. Mike

As a refresher here's my coupe

Definitely go Mike and watch the jaws drop when you roll in and the teeth fall out when you pop the hood.

Thanks guys, this motivates me to properly prepare the car for other events as well. As I usually drive this a bit in the summer months I'll properly document with photos the undercarriage, exhaust and engine compartment. Local Mercedes Club has their annual show and shine in a few weeks as well. Ain't no way I can attempt to get a "preservation" certificate at the MB show. Haha

Mike, I noticed the upgraded stainless door sill like the ones a good number of us ordered from Gerry. Did you leave the OEM ribbed plastic one underneath (where normally a fraction of an inch shows on either side), or did you find a solution for fitting the metal one minus the plastic?
