    Hoping to make it all weekend, kind of disappointed that my 18th birthday won't be on the weekend this year. But, I'll manage :D

    I'd like to take exception to that location although it is historic it is really hard to find a parking place arond the bandstand and it is generally very crowded espically at midday.

    How about in back of Wing's trailer, there is generally some space there but parking would be a problem there also.

    Here's the thread about a meet and greet at the bandshell:

    I haven't been there the last couple of years, but since JJ (MSRA #1) is supposed to be there it would sure be fun to get the chance to talk to him a little. I honestly don't know if I'll make it or not; that's still up in the air.

    With the size of this event it wouldn't be a bad thing to have more than one "meet and greet". If there are different spots and times, I bet folks would stop by whatever one fits their schedule.

    be sure to stop by and see us up in the Progress Building - will be selling all the normal Rat Fink merchandise, hot rod DVDs, stickers, magnets etc

    this is the building that is all the way up at the top of the hill by the water tower - NOT the space needle.

    It is right by the campground area as well.

    I will be there Thursday for set up.

    Anyone gonna head out to the drive in?

    I'll be there but it's going to be a bittersweet weekend. My brother passed away 2 weeks ago and it just won't be the same without him. I plan to leave my '37 at home this year and drive his '58 Chevy stepside instead. I'm sure he would approve...
  25. The Biscayne and I will be there, along with (theoretically) a buddy's '54 Willys and another's '62 Tbird.

    I'll be taking the Texas T-bird and hanging with the boys from Acme at the sw end outside the grandstand. The plan is sell the bird then spend the money on the Saratoga! Wish me luck or bring money and I'll bring the title.
