Event Coverage 2020 Lone Star Round Up

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by iceteacharlie, Oct 21, 2019.

  1. Might be looking ahead quite a bit but time flies when you start getting older!... or have a goal to get a ride finished for an event! :D

    Anybody bringing a new ride to the 2020 Lone Star Round Up or coming for the first time? This event is fantastic with super cool rides from one end of the spectrum to the other. Over 1800 cars and trucks there last year. ;)

    my wife and I will be attending the Viva Las Vegas car show the weekend before, then pointing the 50 chevy east and attending the Lonestar Roundup the following weekend. We're taking a much needed long vacation. My sister and her husband moved from California to a new home about 4 hours north of Austin, so, it's a long roadtrip for big brother to visit little sister. I know, too much info. Yes, we're going to the Lonestar roundup in 2020.

    Driving my new acquisition '56 F100 big window (providing I get the paint finished and some bugs worked out). This will be our first time attending, have wanted to for several years. Our son moved to Dallas recently, so that made the decision pretty easy. I have relatives in Oklahoma to visit after the Roundup, so we will make a trip out of it. The weather from here in Idaho to Texas in April could be a little sketchy so the trip could be veerrrrrry interesting to say the least. Anybody up here in my neck of the woods have the same idea?

    Planning on going this year. Will be my first time with my car. Only other time I went was back in 2009 when I just happened to be in Austin while it was going on.

    Some general questions I have.
    -what time does entry end with your car? I know we can start rolling in at 9am, but is there a cut-off time?
    -what time do most people start pulling out? And are there any restrictions on when you can leave?
    -how early do you have to be on S. Congress to get a parking spot?

    I’m pumped about finally being able to roll in with my own ride and enjoy the festivities!!

    I’m going to try with my 36 roadster, then maybe leave in in Austin for a bayou trip.

    I'm planning on attending. We'll be flying in. Where should we stay? Any suggestions?

    What all do you want to accomplish while in town? Just the show? Or come in and hang out for a few days around Austin?

    If it’s just the show you can find hotels closer out to the Expo center East of town. But there isn’t much out there. If you want nightlife and nice restaurants etc then stay downtown or across on S Congress.

    From what I hear about the magazine industry these days, there aren't many magazine editors left to whine.
