Anyone going? WX forecast is very nice. Gary
i will be there friday thru monday then heading to bike week
Forgot to add... Featured cars are the Ford GT, Porsche 911, and the race cars of Harry Miller. Sam Posey is the honored driver / journalist.
And Nads' Caddy will be there!
I'll be there, look for the gold 61 Caddy Eldorado, it's been years since I've seen you.
Sorry I forgot about your plan, Nads. It will be great to see you and the Caddy there! Gary
I'll seeya, I can't wait, I'm not gonna sleep for 48 hours.
i look foward to seeing you and the car.
If anybody's going to the auction, I'm curious as to what the Goldenrod will go for.
My parent's are at the auction to sell their '32 Auburn Boattail Speedster. It's black and red. Wish I could be there.
Wish I could go - seeing Edsels boat tail speedster would be worth the trip:
EDSEL FORD'S SPEEDSTER STARS at

"His boattail speedster had Ford V-8 power and running gear wrapped in a
sleek, all-aluminum boattail body made by Ford's aircraft division. It was just what
Edsel Ford wanted and had described. No running boards and a steeply raked split
windshield that disguised Edsel's continental car's humble assembly line origins."
I went in 2011 and they had a 'hot rod' class. Does anyone know if they are having hot rods there this year?
Boss left Thursday, hope to get there some year. Who is the official HAMB photographer? Hope to see some great photo coverage of every MILLER that will be there. Have fun if you are one of the lucky ones there. Bob
'37, I'm told that Knothead went too. Should be some good pics come out of this.
I'd sure like to see the finished Edsel Speedster, I saw it when a friend first found it, and we didn't have a clue what it was at that time. Bob
I agree. Hopefully someone will take a ton of Miller detail shots and share them on the HAMB.
Some people are stuck at home in the shop. Bob
it was great seeing you Mr. Nichols and you too David.
Somebody took photos, right?
http://www.sportscardigest.com/amelia-island-concours-2013-report-and-photos/ '37, I found these pics. The black tracknose T roadster that was at Hershey last yera was there.
Bob Gregorie designed deuce built by Ford for Edsel Ford.
Pininfarina bodied Corvette was amazing.
My Caddy parked next to the 1959 Caddy Cylcone, what an honor

The top of the Cyclone in its down position, look at the complexity of the wiring and hinge, it no longer operates under its own power and the engineers that built it are long gone, sadly.
The steering wheel and instruments of the cyclone are still very modern
Golden Rod sold for almost $91,000
The Golden Rod sold for $90,750:
Also, the cool Foose custom shoebox sold for $77,000:
It was good seeing you, I saw Matt later on Sunday, had a nice chat.
I will let Jack Lentz, builder of the "Golden Rod", know what the car went for, I am sure he will be pleased.
My Bro.(327-365 hp) was there....waiting for more pics. He sent me a few...a couple of GT 40's and vintage Vette race cars. My Boss won his class with his freshly restored 1910 Pierce Arrow.
Look forward to seeing the Pierce Arrow! Bob
You have come a long way from Old Town
The Cadu looks great !!
Keep up the tremendous work
I wasn't going to post any pictures but since Bad Penny ratted me out:rolleyes
This was my first time at this show and I was blown away by all the amazing machinery. There was over 300 cars there. Not a lot of HAMB friendly stuff, it's more the Pebble Beach crowd and wow was it crowded. Really tough to get pictures with all the people there.
Like Bad Penny mentioned, my good friend John was invited to bring his freshly restored 1910 Pierce Arrow. It's a 66hp 7 passenger touring car. This car is huge! Aside from paint, plating and upholstery John and Pierce expert, Howard did all the assembly and mechanical work. Congrats guys!
3 Dog Garage had the Al Dal Porto roadster there. Really great to see it in person.
