    Anyone going? Ranchero59 and I are taking my Merc. I talked with the events director and it sounds like it will be a fun time. There is going to be a swap meet, and a bunch of other stuff to do including a model car contest and they are giving away 72K in prizes to car owners.

    It's maroon with a grey top. They'll be with a green '38 chevy sedan, a blue model A, and probably a black, flamed '40 Ford coupe.

    Not sure yet, but if I do it will just be to look around. Don't want to spend three days at a show.

    I originally planned on it with some friends, but we came to the decision we were not going to be forced to join NSRA on top of admission to attend. We would gladly pay a higher admission to go over a non member, but not to the point of being forced to join. I figure its their sandbox and their rules - but my choice if I want to play in it by their rules.

    I agree with the extra joining fee but then if I get the magazine for a year and I get 3 day's of entertainment out of it it is worth it. Also how many 1 day parking lot car shows do you go to that may have a couple hundred cars and you pay $20 for it. I just went to Billetproof and payed $35 for 1 day. I look at it as cheap entertainment to check out other cars and meet new people.

    I've never been to a Nats... Just down the street from me, so I'll likely go

    If it was $50 or even $60 to get in we would probably go, but just the forced joining of NSRA is annoying. I don't know if its the principle of it or pride.














    If it was

    My buddy talked me into a lifetime membership about 25 years ago, I think I've got my moneys worth for the magazine, even though they haven't had an event in the NW since Salem & I made it to Spokane only once.

    One of the guys that had planned o going also bought a lifetime membership about 20-25 years ago too. We might pile into his car and just take it.

    It might be worth the money just seeing the Orange Crate out and about again?

    If you come, find my booth and pick up a print. I'm behind the PPG trailor in the vendor hall. :D
