depends what types of vehicles are at the show. if it's a free for all, go for it. if you notice nothing but classics and vintage cars & trucks, then no, do not put your truck into the show.

What are your reasons for entering the show? To get a trophy? Or to hang out and mingle with other "auto" enthusiasts? Hell, I used to enter my old junker stang (prepaint and all) in shows but it was pretty much either to hang out with "gearheads" and/or support that club or charity. GO FOR IT!!! Rangers are not the well represented and THEY SHOULD BE!! WE ROCK!!

Heck, why not? Good cars, good people, good times. I used to take my brown/rust/primer daily driven Ghia to shows all the time, and heck, even picked up an unexpected trophy or two! Have fun, just don't get too "serious" about it.

Go for it. Just don't take it seriously. It's supposed to be fun. I knew a few guys who got to the point that they would trailer their cars to shows. That's to over the top for me.

It depends...like said above, if there are classic cars and such, I would say no. If it is more of a cruise in thing, then yes.
