I'll look you and your fella Camaro club members up when I get there on Friday... :)

PS.  if the show opens at 8 am..  what is considered 'early enough' ?   :)  7?    6?   :)

Gary

Crowd grows on Thursday afternoon and Friday, until on Saturday it's like Times Square on New Year's Eve.
So I'd say on Friday, by mid-moring and Saturday be at the gate at 8 am.
The point is you'll be less likely to have to fight crowds and find what yoiu want earlier in the week and in the morning.

I just replied to your PM. The "check" is going in the mail today...

Which groups?

Phillip, the '69 (Frosty69) will be with South Eastern GM Toyz and the '11 (nsaneblk) will be with the 5th Gen of the Carolina's. Will we get to see your car as well?

Hope there will be opportunities to meet everyone.

Jennifer,

I'm going to try and hunt for CRG folks on Saturday after we've judged the HNR show. I think Steve68 and 69Z28-Rs will be here from out of town, and a handful of us from the greater Charlotte area.
Yes, my 68 will be on the infield grass on Saturday.

Beautiful day for vendor set up! Lots of them rolling in.
Too early for car corral pics. They usually arrive on Thursday.
Lots of new vendors signing in...

If you have time, stop by the Autobarn on McGill Ave in Concord and look at the 68 RS/SS that was an AACA Grand National winner a few years ago.
I know the owner.  It's a sweet trailer queen.  Just wish I had $50k...  :'(

Will do, if there are any...

If you are coming look at the back of the program. That's a reprint of an article on early muscle cars, which I did for AACA last year.

Phillip,

I looked in several places for you today..  information booths, main HNR tent, and finally the car corral (section 1?) where I wa told you'd be this afternoon, never found you, but made a few new friends looking for you.. :)

Man, that venue (charlotte motor speedway) is HUGE.. and once the sun came out this afternoon, it got bigger and hotter.   I had to get a cart ride out to the truck when we left this afternoon..   thought I was gonna need fluids via IV.. :)

Whoops, sorry! I was at info 1 in the infield grass.
Yep, CMS can get hot when the sun is out.
You'll have to come next April. It will be 50% bigger.
I'll be at the HNR show in the morning. Yellow hat and CRG shirt.
Probably be the only butternut 68 on the infield grass.

Next year you will both be wearing the shirts! ( and maybe you plan on having each others phone numbers so you can meet up)
