Anyone have a final count on the number of Corvettes that wnet down the "boards" .. My estimate is close to 500 at least...80 percent were c5's...

Anyway I do intend to fire off a long letter BITCHING about the parking at the convention center to the Free State Corvette Club (the club that runs this event)..

I mean the unused parking spaces visible on the main lot away from the convention center and NOT on the lot whenr the show was set up numbered at least a couple of hundred
Yet for the general public or any Non registered Corvette
owners it was closed... parking only on the street...if you could find a space.....and honestly more then a few people I talked to just went away ..and went away MAD...

Still had a great time...what else could I have when our club had about 40 people down at the ocean for a party weekend... and we did Party

Rain?...who cares...

I went with the Corvete Annapolis group and DID DO the boardwalk thing. Looonng time to "feather the clutch" - but it was fun. I heard from the Freestate gang that 735 'vettes went down the boardwalk - a new record. And there were several hundred more wandering about the streeets. Also heard that they've "outgrown" the Convention Center parking lot - probably because they only let us use about half of it. |thumb|

Just got the dates (and I am a little bummed out) for thie OC weekend in 2005....

October 14 the 15th 2005.....

Starts getting a little "cool" the end of September and the Middle of October just may be a little tooooo cool...

The wife an I always go down for the entire week and get a room right on the boardwalk so we can sit outside and enjoy the people walking by and have a ringside seat for the Parade... BUT Honestly I just may have to drive donw early Saturday morning by myself this ear...

If it is too cool by the ocean why not come over to C3X instead? (It's the same weekend!) Hopefully it will be warmer in BG this year than it was last October.

We know what you mean Bob, ... we try to make it each year (would be first with the vette), that wind off the ocean can get cold, and we have been rained out too...
It's a nice trip from Hampton Va area. we considered BG, but that is a long haul (700 +) for us.Still haven't decided yet... |headscratch|

Lol Crusin... I hear ya....

Took the 72 to BG as part of the National Caravan in 1999
within a week after returning home My wife gave me orders to buy a more comfortable "Travel Corvette"... so I picked up my 95 Black on Black 6 sp... She also discovered that
Hot Tubs do wonders to cure her sore rear end every night at the Hotel......She had a Hot Tub in my back yard 3 days after we returned...


Not a bad "deal" driving a C3 around the country...not many of us "get ordered" to by a newer Corvette and of course I sure did not feel guilty since she had purchased a Hot Tub...

BTW...The "official" Ocean City Calander still lists the OC weekend as Oct 1st and 2nd 2005...BUT The Host Clubs (Freestate) web site shows Oct 14 or 15th..

Really do hope they keep the earlier date...

I have to say.. I never thought I would drive 700+ one way... I always said put me in a plane... "what fool would drive that far" when a plane is cheaper.. especially with a big block.. you gotta love it... we will see.. |eek|

But if you caravan with a couple other Vettes, it's fun |bouncy|

I'll be there "Again"...
Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday & returning Sunday

Not showing "Again"...too much work to show and PARTY
so showing lost out..."Again"..

Not driving down the boardwalk "Again"...Been there done
that...Watching is more fun...

But I'll be there ...Comfort Inn on the Boardwalk & 5th, oceanfront balcony "again"... The wife has a craft show
(the source of my money) and cannot come so I'm batching it with a couple gallons of Bloddy Mary Mix & Absolute..

What car I drive depends of the Weather Report ...

Bob Griffiths
BTW...The show is at the Convention Center this year..
NOT the park...

I would love to go same as the previous veiwers would, but this years budget only allows me the Columbus, OH trip (which we just did) and lastly the C3X coming up. Next year if you are doing the Maryland Corvette Weekend I would be interested in driving up. I hear it pretty nice up there. We just had to many expenses with the house this year.

I would go but ol' blue is still in 100 pieces. The goal was to ride down the boardwalk. As we all know, restoration work is as predictable as a hurricane ( sorry). I am at least two months behind my anticipated completion because of vendor mistakes, ( 3 clutches to get the right one), defective parts, parts that fit a corvette but not mine, parts that can't possibly fit, parts that look like crap, on and on and on. Maybe next year. |cussing| |hammer|

Sounds like a typical restoration SNAFU.

I started my interior last December and thought it would only take til Spring LOL!

Parts that don't fit. Wrong parts. 10-12weeks for replating. Oh by the way while I am at it etc....

Just remember we choose to do this! |cheers|

I am getting close and if my mold for the repair of my cowl vent door mount works I may be there. It will be the first road trip in the roadster with my wife. Can't wait!

Yes I did choose to do this.....maybe not this far, but the restoration vortex is a very powerful thing...It'll be right and reliable when done though. |hammer|

An announcement at my 'vette club (Corvette Annapolis) from Freestate also said Oct 14/15 for Corvettes at Ocean City. Already have reservations for C3X, so ... OC is out this year. Plus, as someone else said, it could be cool at that time of year by the ocean.
