Almont is a village in Lapeer County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 2,674 at the 2010 census.
Almont is approximately 40 miles  north of Detroit.
 
We passed up two other shows Saturday to attend this one, a bad choice. It is the first one we have entered in our book as to never ever attend again.
A real good old boy network show for sure.
There was a street off the main street that ran down to the corner near a church. Some cars like ours were directed to park in the church parking lot. If you were listed as a Almont resident you were to park on the street you also got a street spot if you were a friend or relative of a Almont resident. Once that street was filled with those persons then people with shiny cars were parked in the street. Fifty cars/trucks were on that street we registered as # 37 and were parked in a corner of the church parking lot.
 
This rat rod had a cross cut saw blade for a sun visor.

We saw many cars turned away from the show that arrived after the 12:00 sign in time despite lots of church parking lot room. We also seen some come after 1:30 & 2:00 PM that were allowed in, assumed they had preregistered. Also had many that parked in the lot behind our car that belonged to the post office and a bar.
