[QUOTE=Tuxblacray]My sources are telling me that the reference to the city east of here city is Indianapolis... LOTS OF BARTERING GOING ON! Big $$$ is at the table.

This would make good sense for the Motorsports Capital of the World to hold this event.

Bob don't be discouraged Indy will sleep just fine under the car cover at nite!

A few of the gang are here and we had a good time at the grounds and eating last nite. We have the booth ready to go and the Club tent(s) are up (THANKS BUTCH!)

One of our members has a beautiful surprise they brought out into the perfect weather! I will five you a clue but not the answer. It's old has 4 wheels is drop dead gorgeous and is faster than all get out!

I will get some pics today and try to get them posted tonight. Take care all!!![/QUOTE]
 
Oh please brother Tux tell Mike Uncle Terry says go for Indy. Only 4 1/2 hr drive form here as opposed to 7 1/2. Mamma might OK the trip if its that close.
 
I know what the beautiful suprise is cause I got people. I won't tell anyone. However slight hint. You need 2 pair of undies when riding in it.   Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Either way ypi aren't gonna get to see em just yet. I am really sorry about that!

We had a great time for the little while we were able to be there for. Got there late due to car malfunction and had to leave early due to heat. The girlfriend could not take it, so we did not get to enjoy the festivities too long.... But Will be makin this a full 3 day event next year no matter where it is. I will put a slide show of what I got up. It aint much but at least its somethin till tux can get his sorted out.

Just a thought Geek  Has anyone ever tried / thought of setting up a laptop at one of these huge events to show off the C3VR online?  I've thought about this for our huge "All Corvette Show" here in WA but I don't think any of us have that capability with a laptop.  All you need is a laptop with a cell phone adapter and service don't ya?

We did it last year at Funfest. I was going to do that this year however when Hurrecane Ike rolled through here last week it damaged Mid Americas Wi Fi. Good suggestion though Mark!

Hey William. I can tell who that is, and I wasn't even there. That's Bob, 82-2tone. Am I right?

I made it back in one piece. Stopped at Mike's on the way home and got his blessing on the car. Think I pulled in my driveway a little after 9:00 (after a quick stop at Baskin and Robins for pink bubble ice cream) and the first thing I did was wash her. Hit a few rain storms on the way home.
 
Now I just need to figure out how to spend my $250. Hey Marshall, I hear you won too, wanna trade????? Big%20smile

Yep that was the one. I also see TJ's in the corner obviously. Wish I would have had mine down there and been able to hang around longer. Next year we are going for all 3 days no matter what city it ends up being in.
