    I am doing some rework/detailing on the grill, it never was quite right, so after John asked me to have it in the show, I got motivated to get on that!
    I really want to check out your sectioned Barris custom too, I have not seen that one before. I look forward to meeting you.
     
  5. Smokey,...lookin forward to checkin out your "new" Ford, looks like a good one, sounds like a good plan.

    INDEED!
    We truly appreciate all the volunteers - be on the lookout for the mass email - we need you to get back to us and let us know that you are in fact going to be able to fill your shift.
    At TOrque Fest this last year we had about 30 people drop their shift....
    all within the week of the show.
    So PLEASE let us know if you are going to be there or not.
    Thanks!

    trying to figure out the final numbers for the pre registration - looks like it will be at least 225!
    THIS IS AMAZING!
    Thanks so much to everyone whoe took the time to actually send the $$$ in early.
    We truly appreciate it.
    Based on this pre reg # we suspect we will get at least 600 cars at the event.
    We are basing this on the Torque Fest numbers.
    We had almost exactly the same pre reg for Torque Fest II and we had a total of about 600 qualifying cars and another 100-125 non qualifying cars.
    So that was a great turn out - and we hope to get the same for Iron Invasion on Oct 5/6.
    I have been talking to more and more people who are coming in on Friday night.
    This is WAY cool.
    Anything we can do to alleviate the pressure on Rt. 47 will be a good thing!
    Come early and stay late is the motto!
    Seeya soon. We will post the official total here very soon.
    Thanks again.
