The Heartland Fieros 12th Car Show was held the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The weather was great and so was the turnout. The Heartland show is unique on the MFC Show Circuit in that it is the only Points Judged show. I enjoy bringing my Fiero every year and competing against myself to see if I can exceed last years score. Its also unique in that its the best chance to see a collection of rare GM Prototype and Pilot cars maintained by Heartland Chairman Fred Bartemeyer and Ed York.
After awards and a quick trip back to the Hotel to freshen up, it was off to Fred’s house for the best backyard BBQ of the year. As if the great food and yard full of Fieros and friends were not enough, Mary Bartermeyer arranged for rides in her’s and another Model T. I was lucky enough to ride in both and witness Fred giving 15 year old Carter Shipman a lesson in how to drive one. Keep an eye out on the 2016 calendar for this show, its always a fun one.
