Corpus Christ Gear Jammers Annual Show and Shine

Corpus Christi, TX

August 22, 2004


The Corpus Christi Gear Jammers car club held its 4th annual show and shine event at the Parkdale Shopping Center on Sunday August 22nd.  The Shopping Center is located right on Staples drive and has a large parking lot in front of what appears to be a number of out of business store fronts, so there are plenty of parking spaces for cars to park.  There was a $15 entry fee charged to all participants who wished to enter their cars and be judged to win trophies and prizes in various categories.  The first 100 participants received an event t-shirt for the event as well.  We were a bit concerned as we drove into Corpus Christi early Sunday as the sky was littered with dark clouds and the local radio stations were talking about scattered showers around and throughout the Corpus area.  A few smaller showers sprinkled rain drops on us and forced us to activate the ol' windshield wipers a few times on the road.  We kept driving and hoped for the best and hoped that the weather would hold out and we would be able to still see cars and the event would be a success.  At the location, the sun was out shining and the ominous dark clouds stayed scattered around us.  A local rock-a-billy band provided some fantastic live music as we walked through the rows of cars that turned out for the event.  A large variety of vehicles were present from some extremely nice customized street rods, to a few original model T's, some all out muscle injected race cars, and everything in between.  The only other "valleyite" we spotted that braved the trip and took his car up that we saw was Melvin Champagne with his beautiful blue and white '55 Chevy.  One complaint that we did have to offer to the Gear Jammers group is that on all their flyers and advertisements leading up to the event they stressed and stated that the event would not feature or permit modern import tuners, lowriders or vehicles newer than 1975.  Well upon arriving, the first few rows of cars were nothing more than brand new or newer street cars.  We thought, well perhaps they were just parked there but were not actually part of the event, but upon closer inspection found that they indeed were registered and were in a category as part of the event.  Our thought is that the event should stick to what it is advertised as or for.  For more info on Gear Jammers club or next years event, check out their website at
