I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE JUST ONE THREAD ON THE OPEN HOUSES & THE SHOW ITSELF. PICS OF YOUR DRIVE TO IT & ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF. A LOT OF THE GUYS ON HERE WON'T BE ABLE TO MAKE IT, & IT SURE WOULD BE NICE FOR THOSE GUYS IF WE CAN MAKE THEM FEEL LIKE THEY WERE THERE. EVERYBODY HAVE A SAFE & FUN TRIP.

Looking forward to the drive with TS3X65MPH ( but not that fast) from Frisco to LARS

Doing my best to be there. Putting a new motor in the new roadster (problems with the first one) debating whether to drive or trailer as it will have no long road miles on it before time to leave?????? Staying at the Sheraton Fairplex so not far to drive.

Drove out to the show in a deuce roadster in 86. After that running the rod shop didn't leave much time for driving trips. First opportunity I've had for an extended trip in a long while. Taking the 3 window just wouldn't be the same. Been looking forward to having a roadster at the show for a long time. It'll be there even if it's in a trailer! I see a lot of trailers in the area so I won't be alone.

Better check with the Arizona DPS as there is a forest fire burning in Oak Creek Canyon at the moment that's only 20% contained. If they don't get it out in the next few days the roads may not be open up there.

No, we are taking Hwy 97 to 395 on the way down and then going up the coast on the way home.
There will be about 35 of us from BC coming down, most are staying at the Best Western in San Dimas.
Hope to meet up with some of you.
Keith.
