I was there for four days. Saw quite a few people from the CRG forum including several that I had not met in person before. Never saw a person with a CRG shirt on. I think if you just go up to a car owner and ask them about their car you will hear some great stories, learn something, and find yourself having a good time. The more often you go, the more people you will meet and the more fun it becomes.
Agree. Nice meeting you Jon..Joe

You asked for pics to show on you ship. I got the hood down and sent pics and that was the last I heard from you.. total waste of my time but no big deal for you. You have never been to MCACN but feel like you need to trash the people that go thru the time and expense to share their cars. As a owner of MCACN and a participant I can assure you that you have insulted many. MCACN is probably not the place for you.

I did ask for pics to put in the add, howevert there was no way I was going to purchase an item like that without seeing pics before the money was spent anyway so its a moot point
why the pics were requested. I initially was thinking about doin the Uship thing, got busy at work and the idea lost traction.
I just don't have time to mess with it. I probably would have had 1400 dollars into that thing by the time I paid for crating and shipping
so I apologize for wasting your time to dig it out

I got to meet Danny the year he had his Z at the show and have no idea what shirt he had on lol.
I have met some real nice helpful people at car events and they are now friends for life. Most were from my trip to MCACN.  Several have been helpful in the restoration of my Z.

Note, I wasn't complaining. I was just kinda surprised that I could walk around the whole show for hours and hours for 2 days, with just the shirt on, no jacket... and not one person came up and said,"Hey CRG, cool, which member are you". Or a similar statement. Not a big deal, it's not like it ruined my trip, just say'in... Danny

I know for a fact that the show gets cars from owners with varying wealth. No matter how much money is in your pocket, if you are a true car guy - thatís all that matters.

Often when words are just read on a screen - there can be some misinterpretation. Letís all try to stay civil.

Maybe 2020 will be the year I can attend. I hope so. Seems like an awesome venue to see great cars and great people.

My 68 is just a POS old drag car (L78 originally shipped to Dick Fencl Chevrolet in one of the Chicago suburbs, Oak Park, IL) that nobody would want to see. But the 67 *might* be, depending on which way we ultimately go with the restoration. I was able to get some background history on it from the son of the original owner (he passed away a few years ago) and the original owners buddy. The car was in the Quad Cities area itís whole life (off the road much of the time since the early 70s) until I bought it.

Wish I could have made the show, the pictures are always amazing to see all the various cars that show up. I hope to try and save some vacation time to be able to make it next year. Would love to someday drag the 68 all the way there to show it. Maybe if they ever decided to do a L30/M20 display.

I hope someone took a photo of Jeff Makovich's 69 TA car...  I sold him a set of ARE magnesium wheels that I'd had for 35 yrs (which came off Bob Christiansen's 69 z28 TA car) so I'm hoping to see them put to good use.. :)

I didn't take this shot. It was posted by someone who posted a link on the Yenko site. I believe photo credit goes to Ryan Brutt. Here's the 69 T/A car.

Thanks for the insults Niblet. Since I never heard back from you on the 67 hood I drug out of storage and took pictures of that you were interested in buying I finally put it back away. After the insult I'm really sorry I wasted my time. I learned alot from your post.

Well, it seems a couple of guys here got butthurt with me and banned me from the "good 'ole boys club"
I was talking about,,,,thanks for proving me right Chuck!

I can assure you there is no ďgood ole boys clubĒ here.  One of the few places where this isnít the case.  I have made many friends here, many I have met in person and still more that Iíve never met. Personally itís your attitude and your posts that have people not wanting to be friendly towards you.  Attract more flies with honey than vinegar.

I kind of feel sorry for you guy. Ever since you joined this site, youíve had that proverbial chip on your shoulder. I have met some pretty wealthy guys on here. And some poor schmucks, that are much,  like myself. But when we get together, all that matters is that we have a common passion for cars. I have never felt looked down upon. In fact Iím equal with my peers. No one is out to prove anything or rub their good fortune in my face. If that was the case, would we all look so forward to seeing each other at these events?  I donít know about all guys, but I cherish the relationships I have made with these fellas. Yes, to the point that I made that shirt, not to draw undue attention to myself, but that fellas that have never met me in person and I have never had the pleasure to have met many of them, as well, could find me so that my hopes were that I would not leave without meeting all I wanted. Sadly, I did not. But I will try, again, next year. Does that sound like a bunch of guys to avoid, I ask? Yep, cars are drool worthy, fellas that I meet are priceless treasures. I only pray you soften your hard heart so as to see the value of good relationships

I have no knowledge about why you were banned there, but don't bring the fight onto this forum - check that baggage at the door. :)
Thanks.
