What should I bring to Knotts???
« on: March 27, 2009, 11:22:59 PM »
Ok, since this is my first show like this, I was wondering what I should bring?? Is this a show that we can kind of sit by our cars, or do we park them and just walk around???

I plan on bringing.....

Folding chairs, ice chest, and a big umbrella for shade. Does these things sound ok to bring, or am I going to be a dork because I brought a big umbrella?? LOL Any thing else I should bring???

Thanks

Well, don't forget you, Hubby and Miss Ghost! lol. Other than that, good question. I wanted to bring the '74 Pinto brochure too. I know I do want to look at the Mustang IIs and the other Pintos. This is my first show too.
One can never have too many Pintos!

Those are perfect things to bring, especially the giant umbrella.
In fact, I'll probably attempt to sit under it, so beware =P
You'll find yourself wandering around and gawking at all the other cars there for a while(yes, we must pay attention to the non-pintos), but otherwise its fun to sit around with other club members in folding chairs and share stories. Plus, its always interesting to hear the comments people make about the cars, and more often than not, you'll spend 10+ minutes with one person because they'll have a pinto story of their own to tell you.

Not if I beat you to it Kim! ;D  I'll even bring stuff to clean & check out the tape deck! We had a yard sale this weekend, I didn't get a chance to install my cassette player yet, but I bench tested it in my brother's bus, and it works like new. Good news about yard sale! I made $50! :o

Cool, you can clean my 8 track and cassette adaptor!!!  ;D 

Are you going to use the money from the yard sale to fund the trip to Knotts????  ;D ;D

Hi everyone,
  My friend that brings his mustang to Knotts says the officals don't allow umbrellas. Just don't want you to carry it in and not get to use it. See ya there. Dan.
Nothing like a 460 under the hood!!!

Really? That is a bummer. I wonder if they allow those pop up square cover thingies? I'd have to hang a tarp from the roof rack to the roof rack of another Pinto!! LOL  You would think they would allow some type of shade device!! A hat doesn't cover your whole body!!!! ????

Well, one way to find out would be to email the FabFords people and ask them what's ok and what's not. I would think it would be stated on the entry form. I'll be too busy drooling at the other Pintos (especially Kim's!) and the other Fords and seeing friends to even think about shade. I'll be slathering sunblock on!

On another note, a little bird (next door! lol) told me my mechanic neighbor Jerry and a couple of his buddies are going up there to look. Jerry brought his Falcon when he had it a few times. All this does is wind me up more!!!

My entry form says no 'canopies', I would take that to mean portable tent type devices/awnings for purpose of shading more than one person and/or the vehicle. I don't really think of an umbrella as a 'canopy' ???

When I was in my early 20s I worked for a lawyer as a courier for about a year, I got used to looking for loopholes ;D

You beat me to it.  No form of shade (tent, ez up, umbrella...) is allowed.  If some wind was to come up, their car could get scratched.  Other than that, you seem to have what to bring covered.  See you there

It can get hot there and there is realy no shade so make sure you bring lots of bottled water and a hat for sure.

Last summer I went to a show and a lot of poeple had small canopies that attached to their chairs. Not lawn chairs but those fabric type that plop open. They had fabric canopies that were part of the chair. They may allow that, when you get up to walk around you can just fold it up and slide it under the car.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
