Plan on going down on Thursday morning. Running down with the Fastiques club.
timwhit: Thanks for that...the only thing is we will be only arriving late at the showgrounds because we will be only getting in Tuesday night around midnight. We are going to be "sleeping in" a bit to get over any jet lag we may have. I think we will only arrive about 10-11 am still unsure at this stage. What is the name of your tent so I can recognise it when we arrive. Or tell me if you have anything else that I can get in contact with you.
This looks to be a very busy and enjoyable week!!!
Thanks very much.
I'm going, Leaving Sunday. Meeting up with some guys from Maine and New Hampshire and driving for 4 days with stops at Brookville Roadsters and other shops along the way. Making a 12 day trip out of it with 16 others, should be a fun trip. I'm going with the Mass state rep. for NSRA in his chopped49 Merc, with air and caddy seats.
mtw: I will be parked in the front parking lot on the west side, kind of in the middle of the lot. The tent will hold about 14 -16 cars. I will be with a bunch of guys who tend to drive old Ford hot rods similar to mine. Look for the car in my avatar. Tim Whitaker
Good news guys! The advanced Louisville weather forecast is a high of 78 on Wednesday, 81 on Thursday and 82 on Friday with no rain. You couldn't ask for anything better.
