    Any thoughts on the new location.

    I am planning on bringing the Tudor over from NJ.
    Will have to wind my way thru the streets of Philly to get there
    since the stock banger is not up to I95 speeds.

    It's down by the airport where the car dealerships are, so you don't drive through Center City.

    Agree. the musuem has been on my to do list for a while.

    I am wondering how much area they will have for the show.
    I think that area is pretty industrial/commercial, not sure how much parking/show they have.

    Took a look at the Simeone web site. Looks like they have a 3 acre paved lot that they use for car shows. i guesstimate that should handle 300-400 cars??

    Hope to see you there!!

    The Hoedown is always a lot of fun and the Museum is definitely worth seeing.

    For anyone into Kustom bikes (bicycles), the show promoters were kind enough to invite us in and showcase our kustom builds on Saturday.

    I'm doing a one-off trophy for the Best of Show bike, to be judged by the show's officials.

    Anyone with vintage bikes (Sting-Rays, ballooners, Kustoms, pre-'75 whatver) are encouraged to bring 'em down.

    for the first time in years it looks like we're gonna have decent weather for the Hoedown. my info says 80, which is perfect. It's been over 90 for the past couple years and my sweaty Italian ass is more than happy to see the cooler weather.
