LOL not offended at all, i was actually having a giggle to myself about all the discussion of the Drone and not a mention of the cars. This was only a short snippet of a 1-2 day long event.
If you can imagine a single make vehicle meet in Uk, how many cars turn up? A small state in the USA is the size of the UK. Plus i think there were 700 cars made, so Al may be correct in his 100 left, so 10% may be about right.

Plus i know of 3 Freeways here in the UK.

I need to stop buying!

Am I allowed to say that 10% turnout of clubs is nigh on unheard of in the UK these days. But it was the quote, and remains so, where folk are motivated to do something. Below 5% and you have a problem looming if clubbing is about action.
What the % is in America, I could not say. It must be less simply due to logistics/distance. For Germany, a for instance. 150 Schmitts on the run, 1,500 schmitters in Germany and surrounding hinterland. Sounds about right.
