I'm so excited for this show. That power plant is my favorite place in Austin and I've stared at it my whole life. I can't wait to drive the 36 to the Power Plant in November!

It's a bit too close to Thanksgiving for me to get out there. I hate to miss the first one at the plant but maybe next year.

Why is it that I feel that Austin is a self contained Unit. Shit next thing you know the Hamb Drags will move, HAMB Cinematic will restart in Austin and GNRS will mysteriously relocate to that great city in Texas.

I guess we can always count on Bonneville being in the same place forever unless you guys figure out how to get all that salt transported. Don't even start thinking.

My first baby daughter is due on that day, so yeah.. I won't be making it.... Plus, I don't think my car is traditional enough. I don't mean that as a slam to exclusivity, it just isn't.

Sounds like an awesome event, I look forward to the coverage!

Bummer for us NorCal guys for sure, but good for the Austin area guys. Was never able to make it while it was here, now I missed my chance. Hopefully I will be able to hit it up in Austin some year. Good luck with it and does look like a very cool location.

I don't have an appropriate car (yet) so would you mind taking us along via cameras?
Looks like a great time, wish I could be there!

As a participant in The Revolution since day one I am bummed to see it leave Nor Cal. It is obviously going to a good location, but still.......SHIT !
You guys in Austin better appreciate this show. I want to see some really good cars showing up. Who knows, maybe I will get out there for this show, been trying to make it to the Round Up for years. Now I have two reasons to visit Austin.

I'm certainly going to miss Penngrove. Especially, that little baseball park... It's a glorious little place.

It's gonna be hard to top the power plant though. For those not from around here... The plant was built in 1955 and was in use until 1989. It has pretty much sat abandoned since then, but it is controlled by the city. Folks have been trying to develop the building for condos and commercial space for years, but I haven't seen any construction activity. In fact, it seems mostly to be used as a movie studio as of late.

In any case, we have the run of all of the land surrounding the building. I was really surprised by how big it is. It's gonna be neat as all hell...

Here's a few more shots.
