    Why did I build a car without windshield wipers...side windows..fenders...and run velocity stacks with no hood. Still going to try to fight mother nature and get it up there. Either way I'll be there...just hopefully with my truck.

    Hey, their isn't any shame on using a trailer this weekend. Get your cars and trucks there safe because it's only May. I would rather see your vehicle than not seeing it but hearing you got in an accident with it.

    Okay, sorry to report that I am not going to make the show again this year, so with that said, I have a room at the Holiday Inn Express available if someone needs a room. I think all the hotels are booked, so I'm holding this for a bit before I call in and canceling the room. It has one king bed in it. Call me at 317-946-1535, Craig
     
  15. I just got my coupe in December and haven't even had it out to a show. Only driven it a few times around here and worked all week to finish some things up. Really wanted to bring it but would hate to smack it up at its first showing.

    My car has been in the snow before! Calling for upper 40s, there won't be any snow.
    Wife & I will be there late Friday morning ready to have some fun. Since I'm going to miss the Friday breakfast meet & greet, I will catch the 2nd one at 11 Sarturday, if I remember. You all drive safe, see you there. Gene

    I like the forecast from Weather Underground best. Fri 52 and 80% Sat 66 and 50%. That aint so bad.

    I dont give a shit! I'm driving mine, 4 hours of fun getting there. The wife and I should be there early Fri afternoon.

    I just made it into the house. I spent the entire day washing, waxing, and polishing the car. Still not finished...interior and windows tomorrow....perhaps some rainX.

    Hoping for a fun and dry weekend; wishing everyone safe travels.
