My Dad used to take me to the WOW almost every year when I was a kid at the old Rivergate(?) Coliseum... I remember seeing Boss Hogg there one year; they always had random celebrities and cars from TV, like the Batmobile, General Lee, etc... After a few years, the cars started getting a little cartoonish with all the mods, but it might be cool again. Anyway, can anyone verify the name of the old place where they had the WOW in NOLA every year??

I'm going! Acutally, my whole family is going! Supposedly, my dad's car is going to be featured in a Chevrolet exhibit. He has a seafoam green 57 Belair convertible. You really can't miss the car. I'm looking forward to it.

If my daughter finds out that Towmater will be there then I'll have to go. "It's like tuhmater, but without the 'tuh'". I can hear that **** in my sleep. :covri:

You are right, it was the Rivergate, where Harrah's is now.

man its been a while. I used to own a 1987 Mitsubishi mini-truck and won the 1991 World of Wheels for Stock Minis- ( less than 7 aftermarket modifications at that time ) What a fun two days that was in the Superdome. I can only imagine the cars they have there now with all the technology and such. Heck, I remember the dancing beds/suicide beds on some mini's and thought that was as far as it could go.

might have to make a trip saturday...

I'll keep an eye out for that. We're going to try and make it out there at some point tomorrow...as long as it doesn't interfere with Championship Football. :9:

Well, apparently someone messed up. My dad's car is off to the left, instead of the middle where it was supposed to be. I might be there, but if not, his car is a seafoam green convertible off to the far left side of the Chevy stuff.
