    I haven't attended for 3-4 years, but plan on going this year. I look forward to finally having a chance to enjoy hangin' out with some of you at the H.A.M.B. Meet 'n' Greet.

    I'll have my 92yr OLD buddy, Albert with me. I'm a health care provider. I help him out, and take him here and there. Believe it or not, he owns and rides his own snowmobile, and loves to go fast. He gets a kick outa me being a hot rodder. When he first got to know me, he said, "You're a hot rodder!...I haven't hung out with a hot rodder for a long time!" He says he wants me to get my Hudson on the road, "so we can burn rubber"...LOL!...cracks me up. He's actually the instigator for me going to Cobo this year...he's mentioned it a number of times. You guys wanna meet old Albert? He's just the nicest guy, with a disarmingly sunny disposition, and I know he'd enjoy meeting all of you.

    Even though Albert does amazingly well, I'm gonna put some wheels under him, so he doesn't have to walk so much. Does anyone know if wheelchairs or something similar are available at the show? If not, I'll bring one. I can't remember if there's wheelchair access to the basement. An elevator? Anyone know?

    The meet 'n' greet is on Saturday, correct? Early afternoon? Thanks, guys.

    We are working out the details to have the RPU in the basement. It would be the first meeting with all my Detroit Roadents car club members. Really hoping this works out.

    Rickybop, I've always taken the escalator, but I'm 90% certain there's an elevator. If nobody's given a definitive answer by then, I'm going to the Auto Show on the 20th and will let you know.

    Very cool you're taking Albert.

    Thanks Dave! Hey...just realized...Albert doesn't have to sit, so he can take the escalator just fine. So either way, we're good!

    Awesome. Thanks lstwsh!
     
  9. Heck, I like Albert already....click on the ' River Level 0 ' arrow to see the basement's floor plan....there appears to be two elevators in the hallway behind the escalator. I'm going to the Auto Show Thursday, so I'll see if I can find those escalators down there for you tomorrow.

    Thanks so much SW! I remember the escalator, and that floor plan shows me where the elevators are too. Cool.

    Cory, your roadster is beautiful! I hope I see both of you there.

    I've never attended this one, but maybe this is the year, as I've always heard it's one not to miss.

    Man, some of you get so fired up about 'Rama. Big freakin deal! What's all the fuss about? Y'all talk like it's the greatest show on earth, never to be missed. Get a life already.

    I'll be there. Missed a couple here and there and now I have the motivation to really enjoy it. This is a show that should never be missed. I don't who that asshole was typing that lead to the reply. :cool::cool::cool:

    All this talk of the upcoming show reminds me of a few years ago when i pulled in, then my rad puked it's guts out on the floor... Luckily it was so cold that year that i made the drive home without over heating even though my rad was worthless. lol

    Hoping to make it down again, missed the past two years. Would just be as a spectator though, I have nothing that is Cobo Hall-worthy. :p
