    OK - it is already getting to be the time for writing things down in the calender - asking off of work....etc.

    [​IMG]Not
    I am sure I will be at the following World of Wheels shows:

    and here is their website for others that may want to go see some other indoor stuff to break up the winter blues - it should be noted that Des Moines and St Paul World of Wheels are not on the schedule this year.....
    www.autorama.com

    January 13-15 Cincinnati OH is a possibility
    Feb 10-12 Kansas City WOW - and dont forget Indy is that same weekend as well....
    Feb 17-19 Milwaukee WOW
    Feb 24-26 - Detroit Autorama
    Mar 2-4 Chicago WOW
    Mar 23-25 Omaha WOW is a maybe....



    sure when Good Guys will release their schedule for 2012 but we will add it when it comes up!

    I love the CHEATERS
    Nite Owl show is the best thing in Milwaukee hands down.....
    How many years have you been doing that?
    11 years now?
    Please let us know the date for August of 2012.
    I know that show is great and I have been there 3 times.

    We (my bro and I) have been invited to the WOW show in Kansas City...and to Detroit to show our Caddys...I think we'll make the KC show but Detroit is a no-go since we drive our cars (and we have no heaters in them)...and getting out of Denver in Feb. is sometimes impossible.

    After that, we'll go west next summer...I've had enuff midwest humidity to last me several years...The Yellowstone rod run is the same weekend as Salina...and GG's Puyallup event is also the same weekend...doubt we'll even do the HAMB drags in 2012...!!!

    The best rod run in the country is the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green, KY the middle of June 2012. Non stop Nostalgia drag racing at its best. Sure beats those Lawn Chair events.
