    I love going to Zypherhills meet,two times a year,but I only get to go about 1 time per. Nice meet with a big plus=many types of old race cars running on drit track ovel at the meet.
    The $10 bucks is pretty low for the show.:cool:
    4.5 hr. south;Here in Miami we have good car show on first sat of each month at Betty's Best Burger's [old Fuddrucker's] about 6pm to 9pm/this sat was about 65 rods and customs/8 were T-buckets,a cool nite of about 54*=that's cool for here!
    Every friday nite is a fairly big meet and small swop as well, in Davie at "Tower Shops"mall,it's free to lookers and rod's,but a both is $35 to swop in.:)
    Over by Tampa there is stuff too.

    Most any car shop will have a complimentary copy. I'm not sure he posts all the car show's on line but his magazine posts them all by type (weekly/monthly, etc.) & by day, date, & location. And it's the most up to date listing for Florida I've seen. If you PM me your address I'll mail you a copy.:D

    Rain Man,

    I'll likely be using my daily to get there as I am probably going to Port Orange first to fetch some rims from a fellow HAMBer.

    I'm in the same boat as you, the cops would really take offense to me driving my Bel Air with no tags (or exhaust). Plus it pulls pretty hard to one side so I need to get the alignment done, and I want to get the Keystone rims off of it before I drive it anywhere so I don't make myself a giant hypocrite. (The tires on the Keystones up until recently held air, thus I was using them to roll the car around)

    I wasn't aware that Florida had that first-time fee; it must be a recent thing since I've lived here my entire life and never paid anything close to that. I thought it was about $150 for the tag + registration, and about $70 or so to renew the tag yearly. Wow, if that's true, that sucks, I'll have to look it up.

    This weekend there is a big all Ford show at Silver Springs near Ocala. Suppose to be 1000+ cars registered. Wear your gloves and tuque.:eek: (that's how the dictionary spells it):)

    Rain,
    the registration in florida just went up 100% half way through 2009. Because the state is claiming they need money. I have heard it is supposed to go up again. I think the state is going to push some folks up here in the northwest to far especially when some of these folks are barely feeding their kids and then they have to pay 200 dollars to reregistar thier car in order to work. Here in Santa Rosa county there are a lot of folks that do not make alot of money and jobs are not at a premium.
