    I'll be there!!
     
  7. Oh Im not going if you dont go Joe!
     
  8. Last year I tried to get three cars there but only made it with two. I'll be good as long as I make it with one this year. I'm planning on making a whole weekend out of it between the parties and the morris show and swap. I dont think i'll bother going home. time to sleep in the caddy, or find a tent.
    Anybody making predictions on the gate count this year? I think last year it was around 1300. Now that the whole country is watching it's time to get gonzo!!!!!

    HAHAHA! You're WAY off. There were about 15,000 people walking around! but yeah, about 1200-1300 cars got inside the gate, and a few hundred more parked in the spectator lot that couldn't get in (or didn't want to).

    Truckedup - why the hell would you want to sneak off to Ottawa?! All the cool stuff is happening in Morris Friday night... food, beer, hot rods, rockabilly and jump blues bands! Hell, have you seen the singer for Miss Jubilee & the Humdingers?!?! I'm sure she'll keep her clothes on, but she is a girl on a stage. :D

    All the hotels in Morris booked solid in March. I'm sure there will be cancellations, but I also know that every hotel has a waiting list. Try Yorkville, Dwight, Ottawa, Channahon, and Joliet. All are 15-20 minute drives from the Fairgrounds.

    After calling every hotel in Morris, we booked 2 rooms in Joliet a few weeks ago. Only about 20 miles from Morris.

    We'll be there vending the RediRad. I guess we'll be in the OTHER '62 Pontiac Safari heading down from Wis.

    Kudos to the hardworking volunteers and the Chrome Czars.

    The slipper is one of my favorite spots in Ottawa :)

    Tent camping is allowed in the lot.. you got to see me on friday so i can give you a spot. Otherwise you will get run over sat morning. :)

    My liver will be hating me the following week :) i usually end up sick in bed by thursday after pileup.. too much stress :)

    Looking forward to it though.. will be good to see some of you guys and all the new cars i have been hearing about this summer, seems like everyone is building something new.

    They must not work you hard enough at Motorola. You're not used to the stress. :) Take a shot of Milk of Magnesia every night before bed. :D
