    we will do a better job with the parking signage this year. Last year was our first at the venue, you learn something new every time.

    dont know about a shuttle... will have to look into that. GREAT idea though.

    I wonder if there is a vintage bus or two in the area? That would be pretty cool.

    Went to the Sidetrack in Depot Town with BenD last night. Gave him the nickel tour of the area including the park. He just might attend Billetproff again after a many year absence he was that impressed with the location.

    last year it was a little over 400 cars and 1000+ people (right off the top of my head I can dig in the records and look up the exact numbers is needed). A pretty nice swap meet and lots of vendors. Look at it this way, if you spend 1 minute looking at each car thats over 6 hours :D. Not too bad. great location, good entertainment nearby and great folks.
