    The same manager is probably still there as there were quite a few cars with for sale signs there last year and its the same with across the street in the plaza.

    It's a kustom-kulture-rat-rod-hot-rod-custom-pin-up-music party! Just go! I'll be packed full of bad ass rides, hot chicks, and great music!

    Go to page 3 in this thread. You can read all about it on my post there.

    Well...i'm here in Daytona, but I didn't know about the event. Here visiting family and just enjoying the beach and scenary. Really pissed off that I don't have one of my cars...especially my '27 since the weather has been so nice.

    On a side note, I've been over to the Ruby Tuesdays a couple of times at the gathering...tried talking to a few people and some are the most anti-social and/or stuckup asses I've ever met. Its like they couldn't be bothered. Have never gotten attitude from car people like that back home in Dallas, in Austin at the Roundup, or in Biloxi at Cruisin' the Coast. I know its not a true representation of people in the SouthEast, but walked away a bit perplexed about the attitude. Couple of the nicest conversations I had were a couple of northeasterners....one from Maryland, and another from Virginia Beach.

    Not sure what the others problems were. Stick shoved up too far their ass i suppose. Maybe they didn't know that I was in the "club", but I'm unsure why it should matter.

    I used to feel that way about the Street Rod Nats in Tampa, you would pay someone a compliment on their car and they would look at you like you were pondscum. But I went last year and found it totally different, so I guess a few bad apples can give you the wrong impression.

    If you stick around through the weekend you will find a super nice bunch of rodders and car lovers in Daytona. Most people don't start showing up until after Thursday, then the town blows up x 10,000.

    I know its not a true representation...but first 3 or 4 people I talked with just came across as dicks. Just as you said...pay a compliment or ask a question, and would either get ignored, or get a "whatever" look or attitude. I'm here with my parents, who I've taken to more than a few shows or events...they even commented about the attitude they have received from some people stating that the crowd seems to be different back home.

    We're with family on Thursday, and driving back to Dallas on Friday. Did make a point to schedule time at the track Friday morning and afternoon before driving back though.

    Hope to see some of you out there.

    Most of those assholes at belair right now are just dealers. They park there on monday and dont move there cars till they sell them or leave on sunday. If you notice you will see the same cars in the same spot in the first few row's. Gregg

    I live here(FL.) and have run into some of the same people.The Daytona car club membership is mostly guys w/wallet cars that wouldn't give you the sweat off of their armpits if you were dying of thirst.
    I was going to the TRR w/the money from selling the 59 wagon but I guess dmikulec (Dave) backed out after lying about sending the $$,So I'll be at home working on the sedan delivery.:rolleyes:

    Bill, I'll bet the parking and traffic situation was a lot easier to deal with.

    Glad to hear you had no problems driving it from Arizona. Are you going to be at the plaza across from La Playa, too?

    I was there Thanksgiving day.

    Dinner was a Cracker Barrel and it was more than OK.

    I have taken over 300 pictures for the Turkey Run Website. I am still working on them and will take more on Saturday. You can the pictures that I have taken so far at:
