    I to will be in the Autorama (my first to attend an actually have something I built in it), so anyone and everyone stop by the Carrs's Corvettes and Custom tent and say hi. we will be near the entrance i think. We do mostly corvettes and GM stuff (sorry guys no traditionals completed....yet). My fresh ground up '72 Stingray called "Blingray" will be there so If y'all like pre '72 vettes with a shit load of chrome come check it out (no billit shit here!). Unfortunatly our blown '64 coupe isn't done but we may have the chassis there. Cool stuff if your a GM guy, and it pays my bills. See y'all there!

    It's coming up soon.....I think I've spread the word to everyone, but in you haven't sent in your applications yet, get it done asap. If you haven't done the autorama before....the earlier you can move in, the better. It's much easier to get around when there aren't a bunch of other cars in the way. Also, they are being very strict on the no-gas in your car thing this year. Usually they have someone going around with a pump to they can siphon the gas out, but they wont this year. So less than a 1/4 tank....only a couple gallons allowed for the Fire Marshall to sign off on it. And you will have to disconnect the battery, so be prepared to do that to.

    The custom cavalcade has been pushed up to 14 cars, and I hear there's a LOT of cool stuff! The Atomic Punk and Gene Winfield's shop truck are gonna be right there by the Hot Rod Arena.

    Heres something cool.....every car in the Hot Rod Arena is going to get one of these plaques. Not some cardboard card, or a piece of sheetmetal....it's a cast aluminum plaque.

    Should be a good time!

    You should receive an 'Accepted notice' that spells out the 'do's & don'ts. But move in and setup is Thursday the 12th, from noon-9p.m. Move-out Sunday night, after the awards. 7pm-ish.

    So I got a spot in the hot rod arena, Who else??? Next week guys, I'm excited first time I've had a car in an indoor show in 15 years. I know Eric, Ken, Robert H. will be there who else??
     
  13. Freaking SWEET! I haven't been excited about Autorama in years. This gives me a reeason to go this year. I like the idea. I know my car isn't exactly the ideal HAMB ride, but I am trying. I am hoping to get it painted this year (get the damb flat black off it, it was already on there when I bought it). This gives me a true reason to get off my ass for next year's show and hopefully show up with something worthy to sit next to some of the other HAMB'ers cars.

    Would anyone have thought after attending last years show....that #1, this would be happening....#2, that the Atomic Punk would be a featured vehicle........#3, that Gene Winfield would be making a special guest appearance......#4, that the Scorpions would be there and doing a cacklefest??? I think the autorama has been saved....

    man, no doubt... i SWORE that i'd never be going again after last year! It took me a only two beers and less than one hour to walk the show and i cursed all the way to the parking lot about a good thing gone bad!

    I'll be takin my 34 to the show and i'd never had guessed that a paint-flaking, rusted, survivor would be welcome.

    Thanks to all involved for the save of the autorama.

    See ya there.

    Any way to try to get a group of HAMBers together? when is everyone planning to go?

    I'm voting Friday afternoon, most of us either have a car there or do this for a living, so we should be able to take some time off..

    Who's in?

    Your Newport sure brings back memories. Buddy of mine had a 66 too. When he first bought it I thought it was hideous and that he was crazy, but it grew on me. It was green velvet interior and white and rode every bit as nice as a Caddy. He put Weld wheels on it before he sold it.

    I was thinking about coming by Thursday during set up to help out if needed. Are you guys setting up Thursday afternoon or in the evening, after work?

    Yup, Gene Winfield is 100% as far as I know.

    I'll personally be there sometime in the afternoon to leave the car, then coming back after work to finish setting up.
