    Had a unusual experience this week. I received a phone call thanking me for pre-entering that included information about the event and what to expect when I arrived. The Rockets could put on a clinic on how to run an event. My son is a race promoter so I see how much work and stress and RISK is involved in putting on a show/event. Good job Naomi and crew. tommyd

    Yes,Naomi,Tom and all of the Indy Road Rockets do an outstanding job of making the Rumble the best traditional car show in the U.S. A.For any of my fellow H.A.M.B.ers who have not attended the Rumble you need to put it on your Bucket list!

    Been vending 5 years great event, great people, great time...can't say enough about how hard the Rockets work together to make this show a hit every year
     

  5. Over the years, as this show has grown and expanded, it seems like possibly this event could spontaneouly combust. But somehow the Road Rockets always manage to bring it to a simmer but never let it boil over. :eek:

    Already looking forward to this year's edition. :cool:

    Claymart, I'm gonna find you this year. I'll buy you a sammich if I see you.
     
  7. LOL! I'll make myself easy to find then. I'll be the one with the camera wearing a sweat-soaked bucket hat. After the "sammich" I'll "buy" you a chunk of Bubba's "secret recipe" watermelon and then we'll hunt down BigBob55 and see if we can mooch a couple of cold barley-pops! :D

    PBR? COORS Extra Gold? Bud? Place your order now for the June Beer Run Claymart...you call it I'll bring it
     
  10. Well sometimes I get a hankerin' for an MGD but you don't need to make a special trip just for me. :D For the most part as long as it's COLD and FREE I can manage to pour it down my neck. :rolleyes:

    We have a couple of Rumble videos, and those folks know how to have fun. I've watched that video a dozen times and enjoyed it more each time.

    Too bad you are so far away Don....it's a hoot....I drive from Pittsburgh to Indy, farthest west I go for an event, but it sure is nice to vend my wares on carpet in air conditioning than in some dusty field for a change.

    Thank you so very much for your kind words TommyD!! As you probably guessed, I REALLY like what I do!!:) I am a talker and a listener and in today's word of typing EVERYTHING I latch onto the opportunities to have real conversations with the greatest people. Its extremely important to me to talk to everyone that it is a part of the Rumble, you are all so very important to us and you need to know that:) This year we are celebrating our 15th Anniversary and its because of people like you who bring your car, vendors like BigBob55 who sell their great merch, and supporters like Jim Linder who take the time to teach seminars (and provide spiked watermelon). We are only a few weeks away from the Rumble and I hope that you are all just as excited as I am:) BTW just so that you all know, everyone's pre-registration postcards will be going in the mail this week, including vendors;) so keep your peepers on the mail!!!

    Is there open registration on Saturday morning? Is the show at the host motel? Didn't find a lot on the drag racing location or time. Thanks Ron

    On their website...I'm a vendor, have nothing to do with the event but have been vending there for 5 years.
    There is one day registration, the show is at the host hotel, the Clarion waterfront. The racing info is on the website also and it's Sunday after the show breaks up. Never when to the drags as I am headed back to Pittsburgh Sunday morning after I pack up

    I live here in Indy and go to the Rumble every year. It is easily the best car show around. Yes it is in the hotel parking lot. Good bands, cheap cold beer outside and in the bar. Oh, and a bunch of pretty cool cars...... if you are into that sort of thing......

    Good to see ya Claymart, thanks for stopping....Damn that MGD was pretty good wasn't it !!
    And Bubba.... didn't have a chance to tell you when you stopped But I THINK you deserve alot of credit for all the "extra" work you do between heading up the seminar and offering that sweet as pie watermelon....

    bigbob, the "Two Lane Black Top" poster is on the shop wall already. Nice to see you and all your cool stuff again.
     
  28. You're a lifesaver, Bob! A couple of cold longnecks was the only way to survive a hot day of schlepping around at the Rumble! :D

    I'll get a bunch of pics posted later.

    Glad you liked that poster Tommy D...I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for some cool Thunderbolt related wall art for you. I have a vendor friend that was a photographer for Drag News in the early through mid 60's and has tons of photos he sells...I'll take a look through his stuff
