    The Turkey rod in Daytona has been confirmed that it is still on. Who’s planning to attend? Hopefully a good turnout, the area has been hit hard and the local businesses will benefit from the rodders in attendance. Always a great show.

    Can't make it this year but my Vicky will be finished, (at least enough), and I'm on for 2023.

    For those going, they built a huge Buc-ees gas station in Daytona. All grades of Non-ethanol gas available, plus the Buc-ee Nuggets are great.

    Seems like a lot of guys around here are holding off on anything but the one day shows due to economics.

    For the Florida guys, Last year on the way to Miami I stopped at a late night gas stop off 95 right near Daytona. It was a real low key place that was lit all green. Love to get a shot of the Vicky there next year. Can't remember the exit it was off. Not one of the real big ones.

    I’ll be there from Thursday through Sunday morning. It’s my third year in a row. It’s a pretty awesome event, with one of the biggest swap meets in the country.In the evenings there is a pretty fair amount of cruising along A1A as well.

    I'll be there all day on Friday. Megan and her husband Matt will be there as well. We will probably be in the car corral and walking around the swap meet. Will be hanging out afterwards where all the cruising action is. Looking forward to seeing some old car pals and catching up.

    Oh yeah, since some will ask I'm doing great and spending the winter in warm, sunny Florida since I'm a retired snowbird.

    I've been going for years. This year is no exception. One thing is I've never walked the car show, always the swap meet.

    For those arriving early, Garlits museum is 1.5 hours from Daytona, well worth a visit. Nice drive too.

    Lots of nice stuff starting to roll in now. Saw a couple of incredible 32 Ford's earlier, several Nomads, nice Mopars etc.
     
  22. Remember to cruise the Beach with your classic, people from all over the World taking photos of American Cool.

    Took my pops for a beach cruise in my 56 wagon, he did not realize you can during low tide.
