It's that time of year again...

Dixie Classic Fair time. We went yesterday, straight from the oldest's school letout. We saw the frisbee dogs show, the pig races, the diving and swimming pig, the Border Collie exhibition, the duck races, and, of course, the main event of the day.

demolition derby
A contest in which drivers crash old cars into each other until only one is left running.

As notes, there is a "dwindling supply" of "traditionally used junked full-size American sedans, especially those from the 1960s and 70s, which were larger, heavier, and had more robust frames than later full-size vehicles."

So last night, there was a special class of vehicles: minivans. Yep, the suburban soccer Mom vehicle of choice.

(Personally, I'd like to watch a few gas-guzzling, pretentious-as-hell Hummers get trashed.)
