    We are having the Custom Car Revival in Indianapolis, IN. June 12, 13, and 14th 2014. It is a traditional custom only show with proceeds going to the Alzheimer's Assoc. So if you like customs come check it out.

    More info here.

    Here is a schedule of events.

    Thursday 6/12 afternoon/early eve
    Holiday Inn Express/Host Hotel "Parking Lot Social"
    complete with water hoses, towels, buckets, and beverages.
    Soak in the beauty of a parking lot filled with
    "Traditional Custom" Cars. Edwards Drive Inn will be on
    site with their huge 1950's themed food truck, giving
    away food and drink to all registered participants.

    Thursday 6/12 evening (maybe around 7:00)?
    For those who might enjoy a "Need for Speed"
    (and crazy fun!), we'll venture across the highway
    (I-465) to "Great Times" Amusement Park to test our
    skills with their speedy Go-kart on their multiple
    tracks, including their "Road Course" with twists and
    turns and their "Slick Track" oval track. Bugs and tire
    rubber in teeth are optional. This will be big fun!!!

    Friday 6/13 9:00-4:00+/-
    Our "Drive Day" will be lots of fun, as we'll separate
    into two groups and see two or three great Indy sites.
    Both groups will see all locations. These will include
    the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (home of the Indy
    500/Brickyard 500) & their incredible museum, if time
    permits the Dallarra Indy Car manufacturing facility
    (which is an amazing facility) and also to the
    Indianapolis Central Canal, where participants can choose
    to spend a couple of hours touring the beautiful canal,
    renting paddle boats or a Segway, visiting the spectacular
    Indiana State Museum, the NCAA Hall of Fame, a IMAX
    movie or visiting the amazing Eiteljorg Museum filled
    with spectacular paintings, art and sculptures depicting
    Western America. It's really cool.

    Friday 6/13 4:00-6:30+/-
    More "Parking Lot Social" and time to take a break.

    Friday 6:30+/- to ?
    We'll caravan to the "Fountain Square" District, nearby
    for dinner, antiques, barbeque, nick-nack shopping,
    roof-top dining, tequila bars, live music and likely a
    possibility of swing dancing to live '30's-'40's music,
    in a restored, period correct, huge ballroom/venue.
    Bring your camera!

    We'll be providing addresses and detailed maps for all
    of the driving locations...and of course Saturday is
    "Show Day" !

    First, If you've made reservations at the (previous) Host
    hotel Holiday Inn Express, you may want to cancel them.
    (317) 791-9100
    With a new manager on board, they have decided to raise
    their rates substantially, will not allow
    trailer parking in the area previously agreed to...and asked
    Bob and I sign a document that
    could be used to acknowledge some form of liability, for
    parking. We couldn't do that.
    Second. you may want to book your reservations next door
    at the NEW HOST HOTEL the LaQuinta Inn.
    (317) 783-7751
    They welcomed us last year, have abundant car and trailer
    parking on site and with a much bigger
    property, will allow us all to be together, in one group.
    Cheaper too, $79 per night.
    So sorry for the inconvenience! This situation would have
    become a real problem when many of you showed up and
    we wanted to "nip it in the bud", so to speak, early.

    Due to the huge number of reservations at the new host hotel (LaQuinta) last night (and many previously made reservations for CCR rooms) room availability has become tight. Three weeks prior to the show, around 5/22 some rooms may free up. You may want to call now to get on that list (317 783 7751).

    30 feet away (across the street) the Red Roof Inn has rooms available in the $50+/- range. Those rooms are going fast now too. (317 788 9551)

    At I 465 & Emerson Avenue, (the major intersection where we are staying) there is at least one other hotel, a Super 8, that is near the host hotel, across Emerson Avenue. (317 788 0955)

    Thanks for your continued support.
    And go out and drive somewhere in a Custom this weekend!!!
