Would love to see these amazing things, but I'm retired and on a fixed income.

Why do they charge so much to get in?
Once you are in the food and everything is costly.

And why does Pleasanton make to existing free street parking off limits during the fare- looks like it is just to increase to revenue from parking.

The good news is that often the cars before and after the shows drive around, park at restaurants, etc. Just a shame the Lyon's which used to be a major gathering point is gone...

in the past, i've asked to let me in for free and i was let in for free...it's difficult being a senior on a fixed income...still, if you ask they might also let you in...best, Cholo

Correction: i've gotten into other car shows for free...not this one...but i might show up and ask to get in for free...worth the try...it's not always fun to live on a fixed income and it does require a bit of humility and nerve...your bud...Cholo ps i'm not a shy person so i have no problem asking...
