    Just got back. Went up today with my son and went thru swap meet and new vendors. Going back up tomorrow to look at all the cool cars. Staying next to host hotel tomorrow night. Can't wait to go back..
     
  5. I'm here working for our dealership's display of GM Performance Parts. If you see the corporate display I'm at the dealership display to the right in front of the fence. Look for Joe. If you need a GM Performance Parts catalog, stop by. I'm running low on them so don't wait too long.

    So far the only cars I've been able to see are the ones that have driven by our spot. Hoping to hit the swap meet and get some car viewing in.
     
  6. Someone get a picture of the orange 34 3-window built by Fast Lane for George Poteet.

    Car count and vendor count is way low this year. You can't blame the weather.

    Heading up in a few, abt a 2 hr commute from Cincy. This is my first time attending and really looking forward to it. I've drag raced semi-pro and never had the time as I was either wrenching or racing. I passed last year because of the scorching heat. Weather should make this a descent day. I hope its all that I've heard it to be. Safe travels for all this weekend.

    We've been here since noon Thursday. Been a great weekend so far.
    Packed as always.
    Weather is perfect.

    We've got 12 or so cars in our group. Been having fun.

    If seiing 6000 cars and all the stuff associated with it, and paying 40-80 bucks is too much, stay home. Everyone here is having a great time.

    20 cases of beer, a gallon of Capt. Morgan and gallon of "lemonade" have been consumed and its only 2pm sat...lol
    We doin just fine

    Sounds like everything is going great, despite the $$$$'s. I guess in this day and age you just open your wallet and if there is anything left after they get their hands out of it count yourself lucky. I used to go every year but have missed the last couple. Maybe I'll have another car finished by next year so that will get the juices flowing to get out and about.

    Just got back from Columbus had a great time there are many outstanding cars,yah, the 90$ entry fee is rough especially for one day but it was fun and worth going to see Kevins ex elverne Pfeifer Willys a lot of nice cars for sale you could get almost any stage of build you might want,great weather too but would'nt take much to improve over last year

    Went today with my Son, walked our tails off.
    I have to agree with the number of cars being down, there were plenty of places to park compared to previous years.
    I think the quality of the cars continues to get better, but the number of venders seemed to us to be way down!
    We watched the autocross as both my Son and I have competed in events for many years. We could not believe they let the competitors on the course with passengers and no helmets! That's just plain NUTS!
    Bought some new tee shirts from my favorite powder coaters(very cool designs & only $10)! The walk back to where my son parked his car was arduous at best!
    I don't know, but I think they may need to think their admission pricing over a bit!
    Just my observations today, KK

    Got home not too long ago, found it to be a great show. The attendance did seem a little down but the quality was awesome.

    Checkered Past 40 that won the Ridler was selected Street Rod of the year and the Troy/Poteet Torino was selected as Street Machine of the year... The Fast Lane/Poteet 34 was pure 60's bad to the bone - Nailhead powered, chopped, full fendered, Real Wheels with a perfect stance was a Rod contender along with the 34 that was this years AMBR top ten car

    The cars were great and the people as well. Got to meet the builder of the 40 that won, great guy and congrats! Booked my rooms for next year.
     
  29. I loved the show. Got a nice set of plates for cheap. The only bad guy at the show was the only guy who had some parts and didn't want to negotiate on price... not something rare, or even in good shape... but it was still an awesome show.

    My trophy case has a trophy case!
