You betcha, friday our 11th year with the kids!!
Big plans fell through. I have two extra registrations with ONE button each. $30 ea. Can meet at registration noon on Thursday or at the south campground after 5 pm.
$60 if you don't have one yet to register at the show.
PM if interested.
After 6 years in my shop I got this slightly off topic truck running today & will bring it to the 50's this weekend.
I plan on driving the 60 there next summer..
If you see a guy in a white Duesy Roadster, it's probably me. Stop and say hi. I'm shooting for friday if I can get out of work, maybe saturday and/or sunday too depending on the weather. Joel
The Better half and I will be there! Other priroities fell into place. This will be a first time, but I hear it is the Best in the Midwest!
I hope to meet lots of you.
and I want to check out that Duesy
see ya there!
Thanks to Bobwop my car will be running kool, thanks again for the idea, Bob.
The wife and I will be there all weekend. The '51 has made every BTTF's since 2000 except 1. There is just no good reason not to go.
Anybody have a suggestion for a "cool" place off the fairgrounds to get a steak and a beer, or whatever-(NO suchi)? Or how about a Porky's style hang-out.
Not really a Porky"s style hangout but the family and I alway hit "Old Chicago", it's about a mile up the road and always great food.
That thing is sweet, I'll be looking for ya to check it out!
Where's the "tap handle," on the other side???
Come say High at the "Ball Busters Car Club" tent by the space needle across the street from Pegs Diner
leaving for St. Paul early tomorrow morning!
Was gonna leave today.....RAIN! Will get to S campground tomorrow.
GasHolesCC by Andy's Diner. Stop by.
Going with the wife on Friday, then have the wagon loaded for the swap meet. Going to try and sell the wagon too. Lokking forward to ALL the cars.
More info on wagon if anyone really is interested...
Ill be there in my 54 on Friday all day. Then heading out with slim53 and bull to the nite of fire!! If you see me come say hi!!
Reed, thought you couldn't make it and you had to ride the rails? I'll have the 51' down this year.
Hwy closures are delaying things,,,flooding in Duluth and south on I-35 closed,,,hwy 61 closed,,I am not planning on leaving until Friday morning so hopefully they can have this disaster Minnesota is experiencing under control..Flooding at the Duluth zoo drowned many animals..what a shame the city has no contingency plan to deal with flooding,,,must take their cues from the douchebags running our city,,,being reactive instead of proactive
Some of you may be unaware of the scope of the flooding
I'll be there with my brother and his '40 Chevy PU.
Looks like i'll miss out on going this year
Bull I like the 53 Stude coupe hell of a gasser cool
I lucked out and got vacation days. I'll be looking for you. We're bringing the raggedy A. Probably the last trip in it before it gets torn down to get finished. It's getting overdue.
Drove over just to check out the new Hotel/Registration location and they were already passing out packets (a few minutes early) so I picked up mine and got out just before the rain started.
The city already had the "Event Congestion Ahead" and the traffic cones out on County Road 10.
I'm getting excited for it now....
I should be there all 3 days. Is it big? I got my check in by April 29th and I was registered as #10106. If that's all there was (not a chance) and only 80% of the cars showed up, that's still over 8,000 cars at the Fairgrounds. Spend only 10 seconds looking at each one and that will take you more than 22 hours.
Sheesh, and I remember when I could park my non-hotrod down by the Grandstands and walk up to where the hotrods were. And it wasn't THAT long ago, either. Now every overflow lot in the place is crammed with hotrods. And the last few years have shown the incredible diversity of the hobby. Everything you can imagine (and some things you shouldn't).
reverse psych pray for rain or snow NOW
Snarl and I will be there on Saturday for sure, and he will hit the swap on Sunday morning. Hope to see some of you there!
Edit -never mind - our plans changed. Very sorry to miss it. Have fun!
I registered wednesday too. My buddy just drove by the host hotel and said traffic was backed up for miles.
