    I used to go to the the NSRA Nats North for many years but have not gone for a while. Is this still a good show? I remember the swap meet being a real good time. just asking as it's next weekend.

    I have never been to this show even though I only live an hour or so away. Some buddies of mine go every year and asked me to go with them. They too said the swap meet alone is worth going. I'm thinking it might be worth my while to go and shop for some parts at least and if I get to drool over a few niice rides while I'm there, Bonus!

    I'll be looking for you. Have a safe trip on that ferry. I've taken it before and at times, it can get rough.

    I didnt know there was such a thing and I'm 175 mi or so north. Where do I get all the skinney on it ? My BIL lives there and he'd want to go too.
     
  15. I'll be working there. GM dealership I work for is a GM Performance Parts dealer. I am one of the performance team there. I hesitate to mention the dealership name as I don't want to use this forum as an advertising venue. I think we are the only GMPP dealer at this event. Should not be too hard to find us.

    If you see the display, ask for Joe. I'll be there Saturday and Sunday
     
  16. there is a high speed ferry out of milwaukee and it takes about 2 1/2 hrs. its called the lake express. the other leaves out of manitawauk and it takes 4 hrs.its called the badger ferry. of course the faster one costs a few dollars more. it is for sure cheaper to drive around the lake cost is 82.50 per adult a car one way is 87.00 just to give you a idea of cost. its more of a convenience thing for me this trip it puts me closer to ferris state univ. i will most likely drive home.

    We'll have the RRT BBQ going all weekend. On this map http://www.kalcounty.com/parks/expo/facility.htm Map.pdf we will be located on the west lawn, just across the street to the north of barns 18 and 19.

    You are welcome to use it for a meet and greet all three days if you like.

    hey raprap, I think I met you there a few years back. Your car has a split 6 with big tips right?
    You were at the same hotel as me. May have been the washout of '08

    There was always a HAMB tent as I remember, near the chicken place.
     
  22. Going for sure-Only missed one time since '96-always a good show and swap meet seems to be getting better all the time.
    Can't beat a fall show in Michigan

    I just got a room today at the Baymont Inn in Kzoo.

    Lets do a noon meet & greet on Saturday at the RRT BBQ trailer which is located in the north west grass area across from the white barns that Enjenjo just mentioned. The tent is right on the corner. I'll hang a HAMB banner there too and will have my baby blue '60 Pontiac Catalina 9 passenger Safari station wagon there as well.

    If anyone has any old good for nothing flathead heads or old headlight buckets, I'd be willing to trade some cookies for them. :D

    Miller's Garage,

    That was me. That ws a really wet weekend with even a tornado warning on Sat afternoon! Wow, when I got home, Hurricane Ike hit us and we were without power for 8 days. I'm really hoping this tome is better.
    Will be looking for you!
