    Who's making the trip. Looks like a off and on chance of rain. Still one of the best NSRA events in the country.

    Okiedokie is right. I think only once in about 10 years has it not rained. Still is one of the best events in the country. My deuce has been wet before and will be again.
    Prayers for all the folks in the OKC area.

    Will be there Fri and Sat leaving Sunday morning. Actually one of the only "big box" shows I will attend on a yearly basis. Great location with plenty of shade and has a fairly descent swap meet area. Will be making the 5 hour trip for the first time in my 1954 Belair. I typically roll with my pop in his 39 Chevy. Safe travels everyone and enjoy the holiday weekend. It should be a good one and a bit cooler also.

    I live there. In Pa. This year but flying home for it. My son and I haven't missed it for years.
    I get to talk to Mojunk every year. Great guy. I'm supposed to meet some guys I've read about in the past. They have moved into the lakes area.

    I'll be there. Actually cruised through the host hotel parking lot on my way into work this morning. Leaving work at noon to start getting the roadster all cleaned up. I'll be there all days.
     
  13. Yup. I'll be in a '40 Ford.

    See my thread here for pictures from the event.
     
  15. Thanks, Mo Junk and OkieDokie, for stopping me and helping me put faces to names. I had a great time talking with both of you guys.

    I didn't walk around much this year, as I had several distractions that came up on Saturday. I did get to ride around a bit and helped select the "Thumbs Up" award winner, the '32 B-400 with the go-fast goodies!

    I wound up never getting the coupe out of the garage. The stake truck found a lot of new admirers this weekend, which was cool. Probably one of the coolest things that I witnessed was walking back to the truck and overhearing a guy, that I had met the day before, telling some folks all about the truck.

    Travis (TooTallOkie), sorry I never made it back up the hill, and for always seeming to be leaving when you made it down to where I was. Made me feel like a jerk, but I hope to hang out with you when you come back over for the Queen City Riot!

    Almost forgot...another funny and slightly embarrassing thing that happened was getting my number called for a $500 prize for RideTech products. I went down to claim it and realized I didn't have my NSRA card with me. They told me that I couldn't claim the prize because of that, so I started walking back towards the stands, then they called me back over and gave it to me. If anyone is interested, that prize is available for trade, as I don't have any use for it on either of my '40s.

    I wondered what was going on when you went to claim the prize and then left without it. I am glad they let you claim it.

    Sorry I did not get to visit with you more.

    Mojunk and Wuzjunk, thanks for letting me sit a while and tell lies. Forgot my cap and burnt my head but it was worth it.
    Even got a good deal on a rotary shear,bought some blocking hammers and a gas saver. Generally just blew my extra cash.
    See ya at the Hamb drags if I can time it right.
