I had a great time at this year's Nationals and I had a car in the Bow Tie class.
This was my first time in the Nationals, and from about the first 20 minutes of putting the car in I started getting great advice on a few things that I needed to fix. I was really surprised at how genuinely helpful all the other car owners were.
Also, I got excellent advice from Dale, Al, Chick, and Scoop. Also, Jerry was super nice and stopped by near the end of the show.
I have a few pictures:
Before the show, about to put the car in the trailer:

pulled over by the cops:
Meeting the 1974 former owner for the first time...Larry. More info on Larry is here: http://www.z28.net/owner-4
Larry was ready to take the car with him:
Larry's in the driver's seat and he really wanted to drive it like he did back in the day.
I know....I have to fix the heat riser.
A lot of the former owners want to go next year including the 1969 owner. Talking to Larry was the highlight of the show for me. The second best was all the sincere help I recieved.
