    A local guy in Dearborn owns it now. Still has the trophies and stuff in the back the last time I saw it at his place.

    flatoutflyin,
    you're right about Kellogg Avenue. It sat behind a fence with a '40 coupe and a Rivera for a few years with a rotweiller standing guard over it. It then bounced around Cincinnati for a few years before disappearing again. There is a thread here somewhere about a guy who seen it in front of a scary mobile home down in Kentucky. I was glad to see it at Detroit a couple years ago, but also sad to see the state it has been allowed to degrade to. Hopefully the new owner will restore it to it's formal glory. It doesn't meet everyone's taste, but it is probably one of the few remaining full customs from the Cincinnati area.

    Back to the thread topic, I'll be there in my '60 or my back up 'rent a rod' '40 coupe.

    <---New girl!

    I have to go to this. Working out how I'll get there (debateable in my gas hog of a car, trying to swing some tag-alongs to throw money into my tank!)

    Anyone know what places are good to stay at for the night? Where everything goes on Friday night? Whatever information anybody has, feel free to PM me.

    I've been excited about going to this show since I first heard about it a couple months ago. (Gotta love how the universe throws things at you to mess with your finances when you are making plans!!!)

    Okay... so there will be at least 2 tag alongs in my car, which cuts down on expenses a lot! :) (Especially as I have every intention of drinking to the point of sillines on Friday night!)

    I live 5 minutes away. I'm going to push the Ford if need be. Also if someone needs a place to crash or stop for a quick fix on the way I'll be around.

    and the forecast has only gotten better.....low 70's and sunshine for both days now! :cool:
     
  25. Has anyone checked out the venue? Is it under water? lots of rain and more forecasted this week means it could be a swamp. Was planning on making it out there early and hitting Milan after
