    You will really enjoy this show, Hopefully you will be there for Friday too
    Austin is a awesome town, you will be fine ..
    Most everywhere is a cheap cab ride .. $20.00 will get you a long ways
    Try to be www.choicehotels.com .. there should be several choices stilll
    Welcome to Texas .. Look out for LSD (lone Star Draft)beer

    I have been last 3 years , amazing what it is has grown into in such a short
    time .. then Austin, South Congress --that is another show..
    I can't wait either, count the days till next one every year
     

  5. I want to move to Austin, lived in California all my life. Almost ready to retire and I'm working on my wife to move. So far no luck but my daughter wants to go to University of Texas for her graduate degree. I think that will push my wife over the edge. Looking forward to the great car shows, Mark

    We plan on camping (small pup tent) on Friday nite and maybe Saturday nite... Has there been space at the grounds (not in the gravel parking lot, rodder please!) in the past years for cheap bastards?
    Camping stove, two chairs and big cooler can be a bitch to drag along...

    I'd be there with ya ,but I'm driving a 28 roadster from Omaha,no room left for a tent. Plus after 12-13 hours in a roadster my skinny little ass is gonna want something a little more comfy to sleep in. Anyone else with motel info? Gary

    The Lonestar RoundUp website lists a bunch. I booked the Homestead today online for $70 bucks a nite. Located on the same lake as the park the show is being held in PLUS less then a mile from the Continental Club from what I understand.

  11. If the hotels on the Roundup website are all booked you might try

    CLARION INN AND SUITES
    2200 S I-35
    AUSTIN, TX 78704 USA Phone: (512) 444-0561
    Fax: (512) 444-7254
    Email Address: info@austexhotel.com

    It's located at I-35 and Oltorf (I think). We stayed there last year and it was OK. We took a cab to the Continental club as we flew to Austin last year. The cab was $5.

    Since I am driving a 66, I don't plan to take up parking from one of the entries. Where do people driving later models like me park nearby without getting in the way?

    I would just as soon camp in a pup tent near my car if at all possible. I see there is a state park, McKinney Falls about 8 miles away. I see so many parks on Google Earth but not sure which one's allow overnight camping.

    I don't need a motel room. Since I have never been there, can someone give me an idea? I figure this Town Lake is some kind of day park with a curfew? Is there a campground closer than McKinney Falls?

    Right by the show, there is a large area to park, they fence the area off in the
    show to alow beer sales .. fair amount of street parking, yes it is a park that would have to be empty by evening .. I've never camped anywhere down in Austin , always grab a room --But I'm sure you will be able to find a place to pop the tent up, fit right in .. www.keepaustinweird.com

    Homestead is a good option for those looking for a hotel.

    You can't camp at the show grounds, or anywhere on Town Lake. I think the best bet is McKinney Falls. It's pretty out there and not that far.

    The San Jose is almost always booked up solid a year in advance of ANY Austin event, for obvious reasons, the best of which are its beauty and being across the street from the Continental Club!

    plus I'd save my $$. San Jose is lovely. We loved staying there, but I'd just hit up a motel 6 or some crap if your just using the room for a place to crash. Hell, who wants to hang out at the hotel?

    I'm piss broke, so I'll be crashing with relatives. LOL!
