    Sunny in the mid to upper 70's. Weather.com says 30% chance of rain....then again they've said that almost every day this summer.

    Hi. I am planning on coming Friday night and camping. I have never been there before so could somebody fill me in on where to go for the camping. Will we camp by our cars? What time can I/should I show up on Friday night? Will it be marked where to go? Will there be camp fires there? Curious people want to know. Thanks
     
  4. All rain-X'ed and ready to go. Was going to be a "date" for me and the (much) better half, but the girls want to go too so now it's going to be a family affair minus Dutch Jr. 6 weeks might be a little young for the show.

    See ya'll in the AM.

    Headed out soon!

    Should be in around 6:30 or 7:00. Have a beer waiting please!
     
  6. Well all and all it was a good time. We had some " character building " moments on the trip over electrical issues were the theme of the evening. We rolled into the pre party @ around 10 ( holy shit it's dark in the midddle of nowhere!!! ) We left and saw 30% chance of rain , no biggie right? turn on the tube this morning its now 80% no rain gear, sweatshirt, nothing!!!! Frozen, wet, but still had a great time. Stopped raining, rain exd everyone up and hit the highway for a nice uneventful drive back to motown. I can see how this show could just keep getting better. The Relix ran it nice and loose, the grounds are awesome, awesome music, and good freinds, if the weather would have cooperated it would have been killer. That being said I cant wait till next year. Thanks to the Relix car club for throwing this shindig!!!!

    One other thing. For those of you on this board that see an event and think man thats kind of far....... F that give your ride a once over, get it ready, and hit the highway. I havent got to do that in a long time and man there is nothing better than getting out on the road with freinds and putting some miles down. Support your Local Scene!!!!

    Great location for a show and the host club were a good bunch of guys. The ride down was cool except for a little issue with a bad gas gauge and a fuel run. The ride home was a flash flood! Kalamazoo was water logged and damn, they got some deep puddles!
    Had a few little scares with "Death WOBBLE" caused by a bad belt in one of the tires but the trip was still a good time. We seen a wreck along M43 (I think) where an old Chebbie slid off the road and into the woods. I hope everyone was OK.

  16. Yes it was. On the way there on Friday we drove threw a area of Battle Creek that made us guys from Detroit do a "roll em up" . 94 was dry for the most part, very good for the 2 cars rolling on Cheater Slicks. I gues the same storms that rolled through the area hit Detroit and closed down the Woodward Dream cruise due to down power lines. Thank God we only had rain and some thunder.

  19. Great show! Thanks to the Relix and all that had a hand in putting the Riot together. I had never been to the Gilmore, I must be living in a cave. Perfect venue for a traditional show. We waited out the shower and the good time continued. Meet a lot of great cars and their owners. I looked at the sky to the west, canceled a motel room and did one of my favorite things....took a drive. See ya next year.

    We had a blast, thanx again to "Relix" CC for hosting a great event. Friday evening had problem with the '36, who's aging Quadrajet decided that the threads in the inlet fitting had held long enough and started leaking. Luckily I'm only 2 miles from home, so I went home and grabbed a package of JB Weld, smeard the threads and (gently!) snugged it up. 2 hours later (used the "Qwik Weld") the carb was leak free.

    I lent one of the batteries from the trailer, jumper cables, my booster pack and directions to the closest Auto Zone to a couple guys from Indiana who's alternater had failed, helped a friend who's Model A had eaten a fuel line (DON'T USE THAT CLEAR RED STUFF FOR FUEL LINES!!!), and was all set to enjoy a quiet evening and bottle of champaign, when ANOTHER guy needed rescue.

    This time, I went home, unloaded the Mustang from my car trailer, and loaded up a guy from Indy's Nailhead powered A coupe who's electronic ignition module called it quits, and took him to his hotel in K'zoo. He'd called his wife who was on her way up with his trailer, so it all worked out, I hope.

    Another fun weekend!

    Had a great time despite a few issues with my traveling partners. The grounds are amazing and the museum is top notch! This has to be one of the best shows around and it will get bigger. Can't wait til next year, should bring both cars then!

    Had a good time there, brought my '32 3 window out for its first time out and set up in the swap meet again, however will only do the show next time around. While I have done the swap since the first show just seems I have always missed all the killer cars by the time I decide to walk around in the show being setup in the swap alone, next year gonna just have the car and check out all the cool stuff there. I see this show going nowhere but BIGGER AND BETTER in the future.

    daddy o's diner Thanks for the compliment on my 3 window. Was that your black 5 window pointing towards the food booth on the corner? I wanted to check it out but the rain came in as I started checking out the cars.Russ
