    Coming up this week! I don't remember if I linked a recent blog post here or not. Just featuring some of the photos from last years event and talking about this year's a bit. Heading out at the buttcrack of dawn Friday morning hopefully will be in town early afternoon, see you folks then!
     
  3. By the amount of phone calls I've been getting; it looks like there will be a decent sized swapmeet. A guy called today who sells Hemi engines & parts coming from Kansas. It sounds like there will be some neat old stuff to check out at this year's Torquefest swapmeet.

  4. That is great, the swap meet could be a neat part of this for years to come.

    I'll be loading up the trailer this week. My garage will look empty.

    Also, We'll be coming over Friday night aroung 6-7 pm. It looks like evryone will be on the cruse, will anyone be at the fairground to let us in to setup, Or shall we wait till Saturday Morning? I'm worried about having my semi-open trailer at the hotel.

    I'll be at the fairgrounds as I don't have a cruise car. I will sort it out with Sam as to where to put a large ruffian as yourself. See ya there and don't forget to bring the wife.
     

  7. Sam here;...I'll probly be at the grounds, don't know if they'll let me on the cruize, my truck won't pass inspection with the rally wheels. (maybe I'll just follow the last car!) LOL

    'Large Ruffian' I like that. I'll put it on a T-Shirt.

    Thanks guys, We'll see you Friday.

    Oh can we bring or own coolers (BYOB)? Or are limited to the vendors in the Fairgrounds?
