I love a good car show. not too long ago I had some fun visiting the Amarillo Corvette Clubs' show at the Vineyard and before that the Polk Street Cruise. Any time there's horsepower and cars on display it's always a good time and this time the action heads out to Amarillo Colleges' East Campus. The West Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America is hosting Carmageddon this Sunday
