We have been covering the Annual Daytona Beach Turkey run, off and on, for some 25 years and the 39th edition was as exciting and mind boggling as the first Turkey Run we attended. 4700 show cars, 1500 cars in the car corral. 3000 plus swap meet spaces, and a food midway that features, among other things, deep fried Oreo cookies, giant turkey legs, alligator bites, and great burgers. And all of this takes place in the infield of the infamous Daytona International Speedway.
With such a vast area of cars in the show field we saw a bit of everything, but one thing that caught our attention was, what appeared to be, an increase in the T Bucket ranks. Tall T's, Channeled T's, and a number of 60's styled T's were scattered about the show grounds.
Both the national parts vendors and the swap meet spots were busy and we noticed a lot of new and used parts be carried off or being taken to the parking areas by the available "parts carriers".
Throw in all of the sanctioned and "non-sanctioned" evening activities and this event is always four days of great fun.
