2007 Southern Trans Am Regional Show
After attending the Trans Am Nationals in Dayton, Ohio for the past fifteen years, I decided this year to attend the STARS Show in Destin, Florida, held March 16-18, 2007. The show attracted nearly 90 Firebirds of all flavors, with a heavy emphasis on Trans Ams. Fouth generations cars dominated, but there was a great assortment of 2nd Gen cars and as well as a nice quantity of 1st and 3rd gen cars as well.
Mark and Belva Parrott do a wonderful job of hosting the show, making all the best efforts to please everyone. Being the Seventh Annual Show, this year the show site was Destin Commons, a shopping center, with Bass Pro Shops giving up parking space for registration, tech and judging. After the cars passed those three requirements, the cars were displayed on the beautiful brick accented streets in front of the shops in Desting Commons. The scenery certainly made for great photo opportunities.
On Saturday, those in attendance were treated to a series of talent shows presented by young children. I was quite enjoyable to take a moment and watch these young people perform their routines in front of so many strangers.
At around three O'clock, a cruise from Destin Commons to the nearby beaches was conducted. About thirty of those cars in attendance participated. I shot a small movie of the cruise as they left Destin Commons to view it, click here (Huge file)

The American Cancer Society was the charity sponsored by the show. The STARS show was done extremely well, and all the volunteers in attendence are to be thanked and congtratulated!
