    I called Brad Swiggart yesterday, MOCNA president, show organizer, and he has 100 cars pre-registered. He is so glad you guys are showing up. He said he wants everyone to come away saying "this was a good show" and has "something for everyone". He has events from Weds evening to Sunday, so there need not be a dull moment. Show and Shinne at Culver's Friday, Meet on Sat., banquet Sat nite, car show in Lincoln Sunday - lots of places to see in Lincoln. His enthusiasm is great. Vendors will be inside, perhaps some swap tables.
    I am looking forward to it, to meet others Metters and to show this car, which is newly finished. It falls under the "modified" category. Not a show winner yet, but hopefully interesting in its custom paint, interior and modifications.
    I am partial to a strong running 4 cyl, 5-spd, disc brakes and a good suspension and staying light as possible in this little car.
    If I did it again, I would go Mustang II front end, GM VorTec 4 and transmission from Saturn Sky (Pontiac Solstice) Redline edition, and bucket seats. But mine was on a shoestring budget. I bought a '80 Corolla for $500 and transplanted all the go, stop, and turn stuff. And it DOES go, stop and turn. 2240# all fueled up. Bucket of fun.

    Awesome Metro59! Make sure you stop and say hello. We will have a couple tables set up with parts for sale and we are doing a seminar one evening. I think Friday night. I hope to be able to go along on some of the day trips. It will just depend on how busy we are and if I can catch a ride with someone!! I'm Jon Reeder and my dad will be with also, Paul Reeder

    Like a Smart car only with class and style. Pretty cool considering that we live in a time period where expensive luxury cars don't even have class or style.
